Megyn Kelly Pepper Spray
November 22, 2011 by staff
Kelly and host Bill O’Reilly were debating whether or not the use of pepper spray on nonviolent protesters at UC Davis was inappropriate or not when Kelly called it a food product.
“It’s like a derivative of actual pepper,” she stated. “It’s a food product, essentially.”
The two also discussed whether or not the spray was diluted. “They should’ve had more of a reaction than that,” O’Reilly said. He also argued that the only reason the police used pepper spray was so they didn’t have to physically touch the students, who were seated on the ground at the time of the spraying. “They just wanted them to get out of there, to stop blocking what they were blocking,” he continued.
Kelly went on to say that she didn’t think the police acted against the law. “Ten of them [students] were charged with unlawful assembly and failure to disperse because they were posing a, you know, a student protest. I mean, you can do that. It’s very American, but it may also happen to break the law,” she said. “Look, I know the tape looks bad, I agree it looks bad but I don’t know if from a legal standpoint the cops did anything wrong.”
“I don’t think we have the right to Monday morning quarterback the police,” O’Reilly concluded. “Particularly at a place like UC Davis, which is a fairly liberal campus.”
