Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

In a statement, UC Davis chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi seemed to blame the students, saying, "We deeply regret that many of the protestors today chose not to work with our campus staff and police to remove the encampment as requested. We are even more saddened by the events that subsequently transpired to facilitate their removal."
