Peaceful students at DFC who began to mobilize other students who were in classes, faced a dead end when the Fidelity Security (bouncers) physically stopped them from doing so. It was a hard job, if not impossible for the bouncers to disperse the students. The bouncers then took a chemical resort, to pepper spray the students. The students perceived these deeds as provocative, which caused anger that led to a war of stones when students threw stones at the bouncers.
