Students angry over pricey courses pepper-sprayed
By GREG RISLING | Associated Press 2 hrs 37 mins ago
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) A state agency that oversees California's community colleges asked the attorney general on Wednesday to assess the legality of a school's plan to charge students more for popular classes.
The move comes the morning after Santa Monica College police pepper-sprayed demonstrators as students angry over the plan tried to push their way into a meeting of the school's trustees, authorities said.

Well, I hope they’ve learned their lesson from the pepper spraying incident at UC Davis — and gotten a more potent brand of pepper spray!
That weak stuff they used at Davis didn’t hardly even make their widdle “snot noses” run.
No cuts, no fees, no Responsibility.
I remember when community colleges like Santa Monica College charged $13 a credit.
Well once he gets a job, he can set the proper example by providing his services for free.
Govt. now controls the student loan program ,,, they should be elated . Perhaps if they vote for 0b0zo again he will offer free college educations to all by raising their parents taxes to 50% .
Students that demand a “free” education and those teachers that support them should start their own schools where the teachers do exactly what they preach.
Nice! I love to see the entitled class suffer.
Hey, idiot students...that’s what you get when you ask for and expect FREE stuff....and...when you have to take the LIB/Commies mandatory diversity, etc classes....
They act like a mob of spoiled brats and then they’re shocked when they get sprayed. The American education system is a total failure that turns out selfish whiners.
Judging from the video I've seen the Santa Monica College cops used some powerful stuff!
I'm just sorry they didn't follow up with some well-directed club-work just to drive the message home.
Correction, it's called a "baton". I used to carry a collapsible PR24 baton. I was once asked, "Is that a club?"
"No" I replied, "It's a baton."
"What do you do with it?", they asked.
"I club people.", was my response.
>> I’m just sorry they didn’t follow up with some well-directed club-work just to drive the message home.
Yeah, these yutes would greatly benefit from having their wandering attention focused by a nightstick.
Think “mule” and “2x4”.
>> “I club people.”, was my response.
Now that there’s funny.
She meant "artificially cheap loans", and you love her, don't you?
Problem is, those artificially cheap, government guaranteed loans leave your colleges with no incentive to keep costs down. They've got their money in hand, and the sky is the limit.
So, you keep right on voting for your Queen Nancys, and then bitch about costs, because she knows you're too stupid to see the connection.
It's good to see them have to deal with their own crap for a change.
You know what’s funny? I reply to a Rogue Yam and get a reply from a Nervous Tick. Only on FR. :)
Here is some video. It shows the scene in the doorway to the meeting room right before and after the pepper spraying. The spray really got the reaction one wants. Still there was a moment there when a baton-swinging charge would have transformed victory into poetry.
Oooh aren’t we the blood thirsty bunch today! You should be rooting for the students in this case as they are finally waking up to the realization that they are being royally screwed in order to prop up the outrageous salaries and pensions of the over feed unionized State employees. They’re not asking for free stuff as these colleges are supported by our tax dollars and were set up for the express purpose of providing a low cost alternative to the UC and CSU system.
But no, you’d rather see them turned into debt slaves with student loans the size of most people mortgage that they can’t get rid of until they’re well past their prime. Good luck when you’re retired and looking to the next generation to support your sorry a$$ with medicaid, SS and whatever other transfer payments you’ll need to survive as these kids will have figured out by then that it was previous generations that doomed their shot at the American dream. Payback will be a b****.
