Police Pepper Spray Calif. College Students

April 04, 2012  | 

Santa Monica College campus police pepper-sprayed students during a Tuesday protest, as the students attempted to push their way into a trustees meeting.

Students were protesting the school's plan to offer high-priced courses, and only a few students were let into the meeting, reports CBS News. When their request to move the meeting to a larger venue was denied, they attempted to push their way into the room.

Police began using pepper spray after two officers were backed-up against a wall and another lost his balance. It was the first time pepper spray had been used against students on campus, according to Santa Monica College spokesman Bruce Smith.

One day, these kids are going to get smart and spend about 30 bucks on a gas mask, and another 30 bucks on their own tear gas. Then where you be?
