Return of the pepper spray incident
A few years back, I installed this silly little Lego installation in a newsbox in downtown SF. It was Black Friday shortly after the UC Davis pepper spray incident. I knew a bunch of folks just wanted to come downtown and ignore anything else that was happening, so it was my goal to keep this incident in front of them on the busiest shopping day of the year.
These photos have been getting a some extra attention lately as a news story about UC Davis spending a fortune trying to scrub the incident from the internet. I love that the by trying to bury the story, it ended up getting folks talking about it again.
