Fascist: Berkeley policy have arrested the college professor who was identified as committing several violent attacks on pro-Trump demonstrators during protests in Berkeley in April.
Video of the most vicious attack, smashing a bike lock on a person’s head, can be seen at the link. It is quite ugly to see. There is also a video showing how the attacker was identified.
Note that this guy was a college professor, and he also followed the procedures of the fascist thugs that have been attacking conservatives in Berkeley, wearing a mask during protests and using violence against those he disagrees with. That he has been identified and arrested is a positive step forward. That it took an investigation by private citizens to force Berkeley police to arrest him is not good.
