The UC David pepper spray videos having been going viral and are being shared across the world. While people started protesting the assault on peaceful students the UC Davis Chancellor has started to sing a different tune. The chancellor’s name is Linda P.B. Katehi and she didn’t have anything negative to say or any condemnation as to what had happened originally. At this point Linda Katehi is launching an investigation to figure out what went wrong when police started spraying pepper spray into students faces and in their mouths.
It may be a little bit too late for Linda Katehi to start showing concern for this students on her campus. Faculty members at UC Davis are now calling for the chancellor, Linda Katehi to step down from her post. There are angry faculty members that want to see change after the events that have taken place at UC Davis. An assistant English professor named Nathan Brown, said this was a specific example of, “the systematic use by UC chancellors of police brutality” to supress the Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters.
The LA Times broke a story announcing that the Davis Faculty Association has officially demanded that Linda Katehi step down from her chancellor post. “The Chancellor’s role is to enable open and free inquiry, not to suppress it.” The letter went on to accuse Katehi of “gross failure of leadership” by giving approval for police to remove the students.
