Did you know that John Pike, the UC Davis police lieutenant pictured above pepper spraying peaceful protesters, makes $110,000 a year after a mandatory 5 percent pay cut?

According to a search of the state employee database at Sacbee.com/statepay, Pike's salary before the cut was $116,454. Considering the UC-wide condemnation he's receiving, including that from "appalled" UC Irvine Chancellor Micheal Drake, Pike had better have banked a lot of that.

Meanwhile, thanks to Anonymous, Pike's other personal information is no longer anonymous. The international hacking group has posted online his home phone, cell number, office number and email address with a video urging pissed-off netizens to flood them all.

By the way, RoboPanda has a most righteous collection of dozens and dozens of photoshops cementing Pike's place in Internet meme history. Besides the one that opened this post, here are three other faves (Click here to collect them all):

Lt. Pike repeatedly gave the unlawful protesters, lawful orders, which went ignored. He did what needed to be done and I salute him for it.

Who's paying you you shill? That fat pig should lose his pay for attacking peaceful protesters like that. It's people like you who I find to be more detestable than a pig like Pike. Keep licking ass Dilldo.

When will we start holding officers accountable for theirbrutality and excessive use of force?  Evictingprotesters is Unconstitutional and endangers the basic rights of EVERY lastAmerican.  Is this the country we wereraised in, were men and women are beaten, gassed, pepper-sprayed and arrestedfor their disapproval of the government? We have to be careful to protect our Constitutional Rights!  Raise awareness and do your part with thesefree posters I designed for the movement on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot...
