You may remember the viral video of 2011 depicting UC Davis students sitting passively on the ground while being pepper-sprayed by officer John Pike. Well, it turns out that UC Davis spent $175000 trying to make the video disappear from the internet.
That didn't work. You can read about the misery here.
As soon as the incident became well known, Officer Pike was let go. He was later awarded $38000 for the "trauma" he faced in the incident. He was sorry for getting caught. Read more about Officer Pike's "misery" here.
For extra credit:
Perhaps you can find out why half of the campus is in Yolo County and the other half is in Solano County. I tried to obtain info but was unsuccessful. I had heard that it was the result redistricting, for keeping the students from voting on things by having the dorms in another county. However, that may just be a rumor.
