Reilly, John Densmore, Griffin Dunne, Anjelica Huston, Danny Huston, Jakob Dylan, Johnny Depp, Father John Misty, Inara George, Karen O, Harper Simon and more!

Remember this guy? Turns out, he’s going to be collecting just over thirty-eight thousand dollars in workers’ compensation, as part of a settlement with the University of California, due to anxiety, stress and death threats that have plagued him since the incident that made him (in)famous. For those who may have forgotten, that’s eight thousand more than was given to the students that Pike was suspended for spraying. The settlement has already been approved by an administrative law judge. (Photo via Wayne Tilcock / The Davis Enterprise) source

Edited to reflect the fact that, while Pike was put on paid leave for his actions, his former supervisors can’t legally reveal the circumstances of his departure from UC Davis.

There are police officers – honorable, duty-bound, and a credit to society.  Then there are pigs, like UC Davis cop John Pike, who (in)famously pepper-sprayed a group of peaceably protesting students during an Occupy event in 2011and who is now suing for workman’s compensation, claiming he suffered “psychiatric injury” in the months following the event.

Oink oink, fucker.

John Murphy was beaten, banished, threatened by Bellamy Blake. When he had the chance to let him fall to his death, Murphy didn’t let go. 

John Murphy was berated, beaten, and humiliated by Charles Pike, setting off a chain of events that turned John into the dick he was on the ground, leading him to be ostracized from his own people. But when Indra tried to finish him off, he stopped her.

John Murphy was blamed and shunned by Clarke (thereby, all of the Delinquents) for Finn’s actions, and when Lexa died, he made no snide remarks and gave her space as she mourned. He also tried to get her out of Polis and to safety, only to be left once again.  

John Murphy was nearly shot to death by Raven, and even though she mocked him for the pain and guilt of his mother and father’s deaths, he still tried to help her as she lay dying. 

John Murphy accepted Emori as she was when anyone else would have recoiled in disgust, just because she was nice to him. 

John Murphy tried to save Titus from Roan, and did convince him and Ontari to spare him before Titus killed himself. 

John Murphy knew holding a village at gunpoint was wrong, and tried to talk Finn back from the edge before he did something he knew he’d regret. 

John Murphy has done awful things out of anger and spite, but others have done worse things “for my people”.  He’s not 100% a dick.
