Thirty Santa Monica College students were treated for injuries, including a 4-year old with as many as 5 hospitalized on Tuesday after being pepper-sprayed during a protest against a plan to possibly quadruple fees to $180 per unit or more for the most popular classes, which are already hard to get into. Students protested outside at board of trustees meeting.
