UC Davis settles to pay One Million Dollars to pepper sprayed students

The University of California has agreed to pay about $1 million to the UC Davis students callously drenched in pepper spray during Occupy protests last November. The deal, which is still subject to a judge's approval, will result in 21 plaintiffs receiving $30,000 each, with money left over going to legal fees and potential class-action victims, who can claim up to $20,000. As a condition of the settlement, each student involved will also receive a personal written apology from UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi.

Just think of what sort of community organizing you could do with $1 million dollars!
