The Casually Pepper Spray Everything Cop is Famous on the Web

The ‘Occupy’ protesters at University of California Davis had a particularly rough day this past Friday, November 18th, but Internet justice is doing its best to set things straight with the Casually Pepper Spray Everything Cop meme.

While ‘the man’ was busy breaking up the protest that day, a few overzealous police officers took liberties with their pepper spray canisters by blanketing protesters who were huddled in a line and already peaceful; however, a few overzealous Internet users took liberties with Photoshop, making it appear that the cop in question uses pepper spray through history.

These works of art are fondly dubbed the Casually Pepper Spray Everything Cop. The guilty officer Lieutenant Pike has been spotted indiscriminately using pepper spray on great works of art, national monuments and even the US Constitution.

Whether you agree with their cause or not, the ‘Occupy’ protesters are facing a tough road ahead around the world. Hopefully the same is true for officials who abuse human rights.
