U.C. Davis response makes local protestors "sick"

Colorado Springs Occupy protestors say watching video of police pepper-spraying non-violent protestors in California makes them sick at their stomach.

It was at the University of California - Davis, on Friday. Police are shown in amateur videos going up and down a line of protestors sitting on the ground with their arms locked, spraying them in their faces.

After outrage from the students, the university is launching an investigation into what happened.

Colorado Springs protestors say they're scared scenes like that will only cause more violence at other Occupy movements.

"If people are protesting and there's something wrong with the way they're protesting, or where they are protesting; there's got to be some better way of dealing with it than just (pepper-spraying) a whole line of people," Frankie Roper, with Occupy Colorado Springs.

The school's no camping policy was reportedly a part of what led to the confrontation.
