In case you missed it, UC Davis Police officer Lieutenant John Pike has become a runaway internet meme: the “Casually Pepper Spray Everything” cop. The meme-images number in the many hundreds. Here he is, courtesy of the Pepper Spraying Cop tumbler, spraying a violent, dangerous, rebellious cherub:

If you want a sense of how badly Officer Pike fucked himself and his career with those moments of casual spraying, contemplate this: the major media are already churning out “I feel sorry for him” pieces like this one: Why I Feel Bad for the Pepper-Spraying Policeman, Lt. John Pike. Me, I’ll save my sympathy until he shows up on TV in tears and begs for forgiveness … which I expect will happen right about the time aliens appear in the skies of Earth to demand a disco revival.
Meanwhile, back to the LOLs!
