Do you call this Light? This man lives in darkness, full of hate and violence. This message is sent to kids..!

    You may have seen on TV news the latest police-violence escalation against the Occupy Wall Street movement, as Star Seeds and Humans of good will spread the protests from ManhattanNY to many cities across the U.S.
    One of those cities is Davis, California, and specifically the University of California at Davis, where I got my Ph.D.
    On Friday (Nov. 18), campus police deliberately and repeatedly pepper-sprayed peaceful students sitting quietly on the ground as their protest action within the Occupy Wall Street movement.
    This completely-uncalled for  and outrageous action has inflamed reactions around the world.
    Today a Noon Rally was held by students, faculty, and alumni as part of the OWS movement and specifically to protest campus police brutality Friday to peacefully-sitting demonstrators.
    I went, as a UCD alumnus, as a concerned citizen, and as Councillor of Earth showing my solidarity and that of Star Nations with the sea of 4000 Star Seed students doing their part to reform corrupt Fourth World society and transform it into reformed Fifth World society.
    The peacefulness of the students was breath-taking. My having been a veteran of the boisterous War Protest rallies at UC Berkeley in the Sixties, the contrast with the strong, quiet determined focus of these 21st Century Star Kids and Star Seeds was striking. (See attached photos.)
    UCD Chancellor Linda Katehi had ordered the police to clear the demonstrators from the campus Quad. The campus police, cinched up in riot gear and displaying the troubling SWAT team mentality that too many police forces bring to peaceful protests, marched in and pepper-sprayed sitting students without warning. 
    There were calls for the Chancellor of UC Davis to resign. She spoke briefly at the rally but lacked  the integrity to resign.
    In historic Japan, the Bushido Code of Conduct was understood to mean that if the individual failed uphold his/her honor, she could only regain it by performing seppuku (ritual suicide). Chancellor Katehi failed to "fall on her sword" and announce her resignation. So her dishonor follows her wherever she goes.
    It did my heart good to see the four thousand peaceful demonstrators quietly displaying their message, and their resolve, without any hint of violence.
    Not a campus policeman in sight. Nor was any needed. In budding Fifth World, and it opened up on display midday today in the UC Davis Quadrangle, the Star Seeds and Star Kids people are pretty much self-policing.
    We indeed live in interesting times. May they unfold further.
     in the light,
     Richard Boylan, Ph.D.
