“kill cops”

Messages were scrawled around campus with racist epithets and pro-antifa rhetoric. Just lovely.

The Daily Caller reports:

Leftist Berkeley Students Arrested On Suspicion For ‘F**k White People’ And ‘Kill Cops’ Vandalism

Two students at University of California, Berkeley have been arrested on suspicion of hate crimes and vandalism after graffiti was discovered in Berkeley that read “fuck white people” and “kill cops.”

Ismael Chamu and Peter Estrada were arrested on Friday and Saturday, and both are under suspicion of “felony vandalism causing $400 or more in damage, the commission of a hate crime, hate crime enhancements and conspiracy,” Berkeleyside reports.

The development comes after a number of graffiti vandalism incidents were reported in the area, as well as several incidents of slashed tires.

Some graffiti read “Fuck white people,” “Class war,” and “kill cops” with an anarchist symbol.

Another graffiti drawing said, “Fuck liberal scum,” indicating an anarchist Antifa (antifascist) presence, as Antifa often target so-called “liberals” for not being radical enough.

The news also comes after Ismael Chamu had previously made headlines for being arrested and claiming it was due to racial profiling.

Chamu wrote a Facebook post that garnered attention from left-wing activists in early July. Chamu described being arrested and alleged it was an incident of racial profiling, saying, “I was kidnapped by armed agents. I was humiliated. I have been traumatized. I still feel shock and pain and anger. I am just glad to be free. At Least feel the illusion of freedom.”

They should say the graffiti was an “art project.”
They’ll probably get the charges dropped.

    That’s pretty much what happened in a very similar incident at the University of Wisconsin. Well, in one of two incidents. In one, the perp was black and wrote objectively racist words against whites. In the other, the perps were white and drew symbols that MAYBE were racist, or racial. The first perp was let off in part because of his tender age — 21, the same as the other two perps who were prosecuted.
