UC Davis Pepper Spray Incident

April 13, 2012

UC DAVIS NOVEMBER 18, 2011
“PEPPER SPRAY INCIDENT” TASK FORCE REPORT
“THE REYNOSO TASK FORCE REPORT”
MARCH 2012

Link: http://reynosoreport.ucdavis.edu/reynoso-report.pdf

Excerpt (from page 28 of the report):

System-wide Recommendation No. 3

The Task Force recommends The Office of the President should review provisions of the Police Officers’ Bill of Rights that appear to limit independent public review of police conduct and make appropriate recommendations to the Legislature. The Task Force did not have access to the subject officers. This limitation does not serve the police or the public. When information necessary to understand and evaluate police conduct is unavailable to the public, the public has less confidence in the police and the police cannot perform their duty without public confidence.

Commentary:

  • THE CALIFORNIA POLICE OFFICERS’ BILL OF RIGHTS IS THE GREATEST DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
  • The California Police Officers’ Bill of Rights (a.k.a. Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act) (California Government Code Section 3300 – 3311) has been and will continue to be repeatedly used and abused to protect dirty pigs who terrorize the public.
