As long as Obama remains silent — and implicitly complacent — about the police brutality we keep seeing against peaceful, non-violent Americans who are expressing their constitutionally-protected rights to protest, I think we’re going to see this quote with a lot of pretty horrifying images.

In case anyone had any question after the pepper spray assault on students on the UC-Davis campus, this video demonstrates that Chancellor Linda Katehi is, to put it euphemistically, toast.
On Friday, police officers at the University of California, Davis doused students with pepper spray for sitting together with locked arms.
