Cop pepper sprays protesters, suffers "depression, anxiety" gets $38,056 compensation

Occupy pepper spray cop to get $38,056 in worker’s compensation after officer suffered ‘depression, anxiety’

Occupy pepper spray cop to get $38,056 in worker?s compensation after officer suffered ?depression, anxiety? | National Post

DAVIS, Calif. — The former University of California, Davis police officer who pepper-sprayed Occupy protesters has reached a worker’s compensation settlement with the university system.

The Davis Enterprise reports that a judge on Oct. 16 approved the US$38,056 settlement between John Pike and the University of California.

The 40-year-old former officer said he suffered depression and anxiety after death threats were sent to him and his family over the Nov. 18, 2011 event.

The Enterprise reported a psychiatrist said Pike had “continuing and significant internal and external stress with respect to resolving and solving the significant emotional upheavals that have occurred.”

Davis lawyer Bernie Goldsmith told the Enterprise that it “sends a clear message to the next officer nervously facing off with a group of passive, unarmed students: Go on ahead. Brutalize them. Trample their rights. You will be well taken care of.”

University spokesman Andy Fell said the case was resolved in accordance with state laws.

Video of Pike pepper-spraying the protesters went viral online.

His address and other personal information were posted online afterward, and he received scores of death threats.

Pike was fired in July 2012 after eight months of paid administrative leave.

Had this choking of gas on a peaceful protest been implemented in Russia, China, Iran or North Korea, our media would have vilified its governments.

When you split the $1mil between the protesters it was awarded to, they ended up receiving less than the cop.
