When does he go on trial for assault?
If we’re lucky he might get sued like NY cop Anthony Bologna (whose official punishment was only the loss of 10 days of vacation time).
“Pike’s 2010 salary was listed as $110,243.12″
wait… what? A campus security guard?
Even more disturbing when you realize that his income was about double the starting salary of a full-time instructor at the university.
Seriously ? Maybe that is the instructors rate that is too low.
However despicable this particular individual is, he was not a security guard but campus police and had seniority.
Yes, seriously. I was looking into a teaching position there not long ago.
Hey, that Peaceable Sam doesn’t spray itself, you know. Also, UC franchulates have certain standards to maintain. Also, “trickle down” something-something…
must get paid per beer bong confiscated?
A certain 1992 film starring Harvey Keitel comes to mind.
Yeah, I vomited in my mouth when I saw that. Over 3 times my salary as an engineer. OK, different countries, but still.
Pike’s future had remained in limbo until now, and at one point he faced harassment that included… numerous items being ordered delivered to his home.
Now he’ll have time for gardening and use for all that manure.
Did he jump or was he pushed?
him leaving helps his employer and him. Step one of the white-wash accomplished.
He probably just makes money shaking 1 percenters’ hands now
One percenters charge for handshakes. How do you think that they got into the one percent?
You have to hand i t to the UC Davis administration. They did a masterful job of deflecting responsibility from themselves. According UC Davis’s own report by Professor/Judge Reynoso, Pike called the UC Davis counsel before leaving to clear the the quad because the order was a university policy and not a law. Under CA law, police can only enforce the law. The counsel is still there.
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Sacramento PD’s future police chief.
At a former salary of 110k, this sheister will still probably fail upwardly.
I’ve had encounters with Davis cops and Sacramento Sheriffs and the Davis cops are way worse.
OK, Davis police chief.
Considering his experience with spices … maybe he became a cook.
