UC Davis students are “afraid of cops using pepper spray to end riots.  They seem to approve of terrorism closing banks.

:” U.S. Bank closed its bank branch on the campus of the University of California Davis because of an Occupy movement protest that has hampered access to the branch since January.

“We have closed the branch at the University of California Davis after weeks of business interruption that risked the safety of our customers and employees,” said Teri Charest, spokeswoman with the bank.”

These are terrorist and the3 campus cops protect them from bank security.  These are terrorist and the county sheriff refuses to arrest them or stop it.

The California Attorney General refuses to stop terrorism—in fact law enforce3ment in California are co-conspirators protecting violent terrorist while innocent people are harmed.

Will someone sue the campus cops and the Sheriff for dereliction of duty?

 

U.S. Bank closes UC Davis branch because of protesters

Sacramento Business Journal by Mark Anderson, 3/19/12

U.S. Bank closed its bank branch on the campus of the University of California Davis because of an Occupy movement protest that has hampered access to the branch since January.

U.S. Bank closed its bank branch on the campus of the University of California Davis because of an Occupy movement protest that has hampered access to the branch since January.

“We have closed the branch at the University of California Davis after weeks of business interruption that risked the safety of our customers and employees,” said Teri Charest, spokeswoman with the bank.

The Occupy Wall Street movement was originally aimed at the Wall Street investment banks like Citibank and Goldman Sachs that fouled the nation’s economy in 2008.

U.S. Bank is not an investment bank; rather it is a commercial and retail bank based in Minneapolis.

The university decided not to take an active stance in quelling the protest around the branch following the national public relations disaster it incurred when campus police doused seated protesters with pepper spray Nov. 18.

The protesters sit in front of the branch and block customers, Charest said. Customers and employees found it difficult to get into the branch, which is in Memorial Union.

“Despite our best attempts, we were limited in our ability to resolve the matter and therefore were forced to close the office,” she said.

The bank still has two branches in the city of Davis, as well as 47 other branches in the Sacramento area.

The bank opened its branch on campus in 2010 in a 10-year contract, which also included the placement of two automated teller machines. The bank branch as well as the teller machines will be taken off campus, Charest said. “They are all part of the same contract.”

That contract also paid the university $3 million over its lifetime. U.S. Bank was paying rent of $8,000 per month for the branch.

The bank is negotiating to get out of the contract.
