Editor’s note: The first whiff of problems from UC Davis’ handling of protesters came from social networks and online-only publications. A full day transpired before the UC bureaucrats and mainstream media caught on to the video, which went viral on the Internet. It is a classic example of how the Internet is reshaping how we communicate.
I experienced this “revolution” playing out in coastal California a decade ago. Now it’s spreading to the foothills. In our small town, The Union reporter commented here, but I have yet to see the paper post a story about the incident. (Lots of students from here go to UC Davis).
“University of California President Mark G. Yudof issued a statement today saying he is appalled by images he has seen of police actions at campuses this week, including at UC Davis where officers sprayed protesters with pepper,” according to the Sacramento Bee.
“Yudoff said he will hold a meeting of campus chancellors to discuss police response to campus protests and will put together a group of experts and stakeholders to assess police actions.”
Mark G. Yudof, “you go boy.”
The rest of the Sunday coverage — in the Sacramento Bee — is here.
