Who's to Blame: Katehi, Spicuzza or Lt. Pike? (POLL)

All three have taken heat after the pepper spray incident at UC Davis, but who deserves the most blame?

Who's to Blame: Katehi, Spicuzza or Lt. Pike? (POLL)

There are three major players in the UC Davis , all of whom have taken some major heat in the aftermath. Let’s start by introducing them:

  • – 80,000 have signed a petition for her resignation. She had to walk silently through protestors in this video, but she’s still the Chancellor.
  • – Famously sprayed pepper spray on line of sitting students. Is now on paid administrative leave and has become an sensation.
  • – Has been placed on leave. Things are quiet on the Spicuzza front.

The main issue lies in the chain of command that led to the pepper spraying, which we’ll learn more about as an investigation ramps up. Those details are crucial. 

We know that the Chancellor gave certain instructions to the Chief and the Chief gave certain instructions to her officers. It all culminated in Lt. Pike’s use of pepper spray. But where do you place the blame? 

Comment below the story if you feel nobody is to blame.
