Ah, the predator playing victim! Poor baby! “Pepper Spray Cop” claims he’s been mentally injured by the backlash after the incident when he pepper spraying peacefully protesting college students. Now, “Pepper Spray Cop” wants us tax payers to compensate him for HIS injuries!!
Officer John Pike was fired about eight months after his antics at the University of California-Davis became the subject of a viral Internet meme that saw thousands of famous photos edited to include him pepper-spraying various people and things.
He’s expected to be appearing at a settlement hearing in August, according to The Associated Press, where Pike hopes to be awarded compensation for a “psychiatric injury.”
Pike claims he received dozens of threatening messages following the pepper-spraying incident, thanks to hackers who dredged up his personal information and shared it widely.
