With the recent slate of police brutality instances, the vast majority of Americans are now sufficiently awakened to what has actually been a reality for decades, if not centuries: our increasingly militarized police force kills and injures innocent people everyday.
While our site usually covers more fringe topics than police brutality, we have a whole section devoted to conspiracies…and the evolution of the police state is as big of a conspiracy theory-fact as any.
For this post, we decided to collect the most fantastic memes related to the now infamous 2011 incident of Lt. John Pike pepper spraying the holy hell out of UC Davis Occupy protesters. Worth pointing out: in 2013, this man was legally awarded $38,000 in worker’s compensation benefits, “to compensate for his psychological pain and suffering” from pepper spraying the faces of students trying to make the world a better place.
This fact stunned us and has prompted us to list the following pepper spraying cop memes in retaliation:
