Reposting the image and links to the posts cited above will help disappoint the mislaid plans to suppress it.

What is more amazing than the chancellor thinking information on the Internet can be suppressed, at least for a paltry $175K, is this pattern will be repeated year after year.

Lying about information known to others is a losing strategy, always.

But that strategy will be picked up by other universities, governments and their agencies, corporations, to say nothing of individuals.

Had UC Davis spent that $175K on better training for its police officers, people would still talk about this event but it would be in contrast to the new and improved way US Davis deals with protesters.

That’s not likely to happen now.
