The Internet hacking group Anonymous has launched its latest attack on the UC Davis police officer accused of pepper-spraying student by posting a video online that lists his personal contact information.
In a 10-minute video attributed to the group, a computer-altered voice publicizes the home address, home telephone and cellphone numbers and email address belonging to Lt. John Pike.
A call to the listed cellphone number was answered by a voicemail announcement naming Pike as its owner, but said no space was available to leave a message.
The mysterious group speaks directly to Pike in the first minute of the video, telling him to ?expect our wrath? and threatening, ?We are going to make you squeal? as the viral video of Pike pepper-spraying passive protesters plays in the background.
A shorter two-minute video was also posted by the hacking group that tells officials, ?It is quite difficult to engage in a peaceful protest when you come bearing arms like we?re flies to the swatter. We are here to inform you that it will no longer be tolerated.?
Anonymous members advocate for civil disobedience by hacking into computer systems and releasing private and classified information.
The far-flung group launched its attack on Pike just days after the students were sprayed Friday. Since the incident, two unidentified UC Davis police officers and the police chief have been placed on administrative leave.
Gawker dug up the email address for this now notorious police lieutenant, you can email him at email@example.com. His supervisor is the UC Davis Police Chief Annette Spicuzza, who says she is "very proud" of her officers.

I do not know alot about this story. I did hear about a little about it. I cannot find an article that starts very much prior to the actual use of the pepper spray. They are mostly presented as if he just walked up. Somehow I'll bet there is at least a little more to it. Were the protesters asked to disperse? Did the officer just walk up out of nowhere and start spraying? I am in no way trying to defend his behavior. I am trying to play the situation out in my head.
If he was to disperse the protestors and unblock the path what were all of his options?
Of the other options, how would they have likely played out?
