42. If 7 or 8 UC cops had been surrounded by 300 angry students
who were pelting them with rocks, I don't think anyone would be surprised if they responded with force. I don't think actually shooting people dead would necessarily be justified, but proportional force would be. Using pepper spray under those circumstances would be well within established protocols.
