Police maced a group of students at the University of California, Davis, yesterday after they refused to remove their tents from the quad.

The famed street artist put together a pretty fantastic piece for the protests. But then again, I always hated Mr. Moneybags so maybe I'm biased.

I don't think that's how rich uncles roll.)
