Here’s Nathan Brown, author of the open letter to Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi, speaking on Monday at UC Davis. His department, English, has posted a call for her resignation, as has the Physics department [pdf].
Katehi was not allowed to speak at yesterday’s General Assembly on the quad, which has grown to include a giant geodesic dome. She did speak at a meeting last night, where she announced that Davis would pay students’ medical expenses and ask that all charges be dropped. Here’s the latest firewall that the UC administration is trying to erect:
In response to many questions asked of the panel, the term “moving forward” was repeated multiple times. Talk of reassessing and changing current university and UC policies was prevalent.
The panel spoke of the five committees that have been assigned to look into the pepper spray incident. UC President Mark Yudof announced Tuesday that former LAPD Chief William Bratton will be leading the UC investigation.
“The truth is going to come out in the end, and all of this will come out publicly,” Katehi said.
Who are you going to believe? Five committees or your own lying eyes? Also too, by the third law of committee thermodynamics, we know that 5 committees are 5X better than one.
