Report: CA pepper-spray incident was preventable

Task force says police pepper-spraying incident at CA university should have been prevented By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' A University of California task force says the pepper-spraying of student protesters by UC Davis police could and should have been prevented.

That conclusion was contained in a report released Wednesday on the Nov. 18 crackdown on students who had set up an Occupy Wall Street camp on campus.

The university published the document online a day after a judge approved its publication without the names of most officers involved in the clash.



Task force members are scheduled to present the report Wednesday afternoon at UC Davis.

The 13-member task force was created to investigate the notorious incident, when officers shot pepper spray on the heads of sitting protesters.

The pepper-spraying prompted national outrage, campus protests and calls for the chancellor's resignation after online videos of the confrontation went viral.
