The Daily Show Critiques UC Davis Police Use of Pepper Spray (VIDEO)

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart takes on the UC Davis Police Departments pepper spray controversy.

I wasn't sure I’d see the day when I post a Daily Show clip on Davis Patch. Well, that day has come.

The clip above is titled "Spray It Forward." (If it didn't load, refresh the page).

In the video, host Jon Stewart not only discusses the , but he also explores the pepper spraying that took place on Black Friday. He says that the two incidents represent a patter in human behavior. 

“We’ve suddenly become a people that use pepper spray to alleviate minor inconveniences,” Stewart says in the video above. “Pepper spray has become America’s new car horn.”

Davis has appeared on the Daily Show several times in the past, the last time being in 2009. Check out some clips on the Davis Wiki

Just FYI, Dan Sperling of UC Davis was on the Daily Show a few years ago -- and apparently other UC Davis folks have made appearances as well: http://daviswiki.org/The_Daily_Show (gotta love Davis Wiki!)
