There were fires and plenty of destruction during the riots that broke out at Berkeley this week. There was violence, too. Yet only one arrest was made.

Campus Reform reports:

Only one arrest, at most, made at Berkeley protest

Wednesday night’s riots at the University of California, Berkeley quickly turned violent, with some agitators even throwing explosives at police officers, yet it appears not a single arrest was made.

In fact, according to a university press release issued the night of the riots, “no arrests had been made by UCPD as of 9:30 p.m.,” with other outlets reporting the following morning that still no arrests had been made throughout the night.

One local news outlet did, however, report that Berkeley police had made just one arrest throughout the night, even though the school’s police department labeled the protest a “violent demonstration” that required “additional resources” to control.

In one instance, masked protesters were recorded throwing fireworks at police officers, and others were shown vandalizing school property that eventually caught on fire, even firebombing the location where the event was set to take place.

Another video shows a female Trump supporter being pepper sprayed after concluding an interview with a local news outlet, and yet another video captured a Milo supporter being beaten unconscious with a metal pole.

Every single police officer in the department needs to be fired.

    That’s not bloodly likely since they all work for Mayor Jesse Arreguin who ordered them to stand down.

    Dozens of these spoiled brats were clearly shown in the videos performing illegal actions, yet only one was arrested? Fire all the University Police (rent-a-cops?) and replace them with out of work veterans, preferably ones who have done tours in Iraq or Afghanistan. I’m quite sure such a force would properly protect peaceful protestors but would also know how to deal with any protest that escalated into a riot.

    [Aren’t these the same snowflakes that keep telling us that Trump supporters are violent, out-of-control Nazis?]

Can’t remember where I read it but that one arrest was of a Trump supporter. A reporter claimed the Trump supporter assaulted him/her. Police were there and didn’t see it but they made the arrest anyway. Those assaulting the lecture attendees apparently did so with impunity.

So maybe we need to let (force) them to secede????
