Sunday in the park with Lt. John Pike


The Photoshop meme “Casually Pepper Spray Everything Cop” features images of famous paintings and photos graced by the instantly classic figure of UC Davis Police Lt. John Pike as he was filmed spraying protesters at an Occupy rally last week.

I’m sure everyone has their favorites. I’m especially moved by Pike’s intrusion on the tranquil scene depicted in Georges Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

Pike’s presence in Andrew Wyeth’s Christina’s World is another fave, I guess because he makes Christina’s anguish seem all the more understandable.
