Mark Bernstein, on what happened at UC Davis campus, emphasis mine :

Chancellor Katehi claimed that the quad was cleared because of “the encampment raised serious health and safety concerns.” Ostertag argues treats this as an error, a stupid failure of understanding and planning. But it’s not just a mistake.

It was a lie.

The chancellor did not believe this to be true. The chancellor was not mistaken. The chancellor offered the explanation as a plausible excuse, much as a spokesman or a politician might.

(…)

the integrity of the school lies at the heart of the matter.

(Mark Bernstein: Shame).
