Remember Kabang?

This courageous pooch fought cancer and beat it down, as well as saving the lives of two girls in the Phillippines, losing her snout in the process.

Now at UC Davis, the two year old dog is receiving even more great news!

So Unbelievably Horrible And Wrong: Police Officer Pepper-Sprays Non-Violent Occupy UC Davis Protestors.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

We can't even begin to tell how absolutely disgusting and infuriating it is to see this kind of flagrant abuse of power.

Watch this truly disturbing video (above) from University of California Davis yesterday, which features police not only tearing down the tents of students partaking in the Occupy movement, but also Police Lt. John Pike walking down a line of students seated on the ground in an act of NONVIOLENT civil disobedience and - we can't even believe this actually happened - SPRAYING THEM DIRECTLY IN THE FACE WITH PEPPER SPRAY, which left at least one woman hospitalized with chemical burns.

WARNING: THIS IS VERY DIFFICULT TO WATCH.

There's no other way to describe this as anything other than police brutality.

And our country is far worse off than we could have ever imagined if this sort of behavior is allowed and ENCOURAGED by our government.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those young people who bravely and unrelentingly faced this abuse, and everyone who stood by, documented it, and said what we wish we had been there to say ourselves:

SHAME ON YOU.
