UC Davis Pepper Spray Report Must Include Officers' Names

June 26, 2012  | 

VIDEO: UC Davis Officers Pepper-Spray Protesters

A judge has ruled that the names of the UC Davis police officers involved in last November's pepper spraying incident must be released to the public.

The ruling was made in response to a lawsuit from the Sacramento Bee and Los Angeles Times, reports the Sacramento Bee. The order reverses a previous decision that allowed the officers' names to be redacted in the report.

Are the Sacramento Bee and the Los Angeles Times going to assume any liability if and when anyone attempts any revenge or retribution against the officers or thier families?

If they worked for a school district in PA their names would never be released if they were not arrested. Why do the people have a right to have the names of police officers who just did their job? What is wrong with our system?
