UC Berkeley Chancellor Offers Stunning Response to Shooting of Student

UC Berkeley Chancellor Offers Stunning Response to Shooting of Student

“Others, like many of us, are experiencing stress, grief and anxiety related to the coronavirus pandemic and the recent murders of George Floyd, Riah Milton, and other Black Americans.”

A young man at Berkeley was shot in the back of the head while on a walk. The chancellor offered a response that boggles the mind.

From Berkeley News:

Campus mourns tragic death of third-year Berkeley student

Chancellor Carol Christ sent the following message to the campus community on Monday:

Some of you are aware of the tragic death earlier this week of third-year UC Berkeley student Seth Smith. Seth was walking near his off-campus apartment on Dwight Way on Monday evening when he was shot and fatally wounded.

Seth was 19 years old, majoring in economics, and was due to graduate in spring 2021. He came to UC Berkeley from Clarksburg, CA.

This is a senseless tragedy that affects all of us as a campus where the growth and development of our students underpins our entire mission. We offer our deepest sympathy to Seth’s family, friends, teachers, fellow students, and our community…

We realize this is a difficult time for those of you who knew Seth. It is important to know that individuals may express their grief differently and we need to respect the different ways people react and support each other in the days and weeks ahead. Many of you may have had a close relationship with Seth and are feeling a sense of loss and disbelief. Others, like many of us, are experiencing stress, grief and anxiety related to the coronavirus pandemic and the recent murders of George Floyd, Riah Milton, and other Black Americans.

Shot once in the back of the head.

The guy in Brooklyn was shot the same way on video. He was kneeling next to his car on the curb, shining his rims or something, and a passerby inserts a gun at the back of the head and shoots. Then one more shot to make sure he’s dead. Strolls on. Fortunately it was caught on video.

Watch your back. The knockout game was always surprise attacks like this, but apparently it is now escalated to shooting in the back of the head.

Wow. Is there no communication expert at UC Berkeley who could have given feedback on this crap before it was posted? Outrageous.

    Sadly, her final paragraph reads like something that was added on the advice of just such a “wordsmithing” expert, who probably suggested it was needed to avoid provoking the BLM mob.

I know we cannot advocate for the very same thing to happen to this horrific woman, but I truly hope and pray she gets gravely and seriously victimized by one of her beloved thugs!!?????

so berkely should prepare for all the grief-stricken mourners as they riot/loot/burn the city(or another)?–is that what you mean, chancellor? btw, was the perpetrator black?

just wondering

If this was some sort of robbery, there is no mention of it by the police or in the news reports.
From the description (and pic) of the victim, there’s no hint of unsavory lifestyle choices that might have led to someone performing an apparent assassination killing of him. If anything, he appears a harmless nerdy student.

Ever since the Ferguson “hands up don’t shoot” lie launched the BLM movement into full swing, the narrative has been that white cops are into wholesale killing of random black men for random reasons. It’s gotten a LOT of traction among the general population. So it’s not surprising that more than one white cop sitting in his car has since been shot in the head in an apparent random assassination. It would not be a stretch if that morphed into pissed off BLM buy-in people taking the next (il)logical step – shooting random white people in the head as “payback” for things that never happened or that they never did themselves or supported.

There is already blood on the (metaphorical) hands of every one who supported the Ferguson Lie either directly (every BLM spokesperson and a fair percentage of the media and political class), or by alluding to it as if true (Obama), or who kept silent that the lie was a lie in the hope that the alligators would eat them last (most of the rest of the media and political class).

Let’s be clear, Racism and racist cops DO exist, but hysterical exaggeration and assumptions that EVERY cop is a racist and EVERY shooting is unjustified are crap. Charlie Manson would be proud of the progress today’s Progressives have recently made in advancing his dream of Helter Skelter.

Given the full breadth of her remark, I think it’s safe to assume that had Seth’s wonton, brutal murder occurred with none of the background motion and mayhem taking place — no active and ongoing BLM/Antifa agenda being carried out by aggressing tyrannically against our general culture and its symbols, and burning, looting, and destroying as they go — the Berkeley Chancellor, Ms Christ, wouldn’t have said a word.

As it stands, this is noxious and despicable pandering on her part to The New Mob, identified above. On her view, some victims lives matter more than others’ — especially criminals, who just happened to be Black, resisting arrest; so, context be damned.

Welcome to the late Weimar Republic 2.0, pre-Third Reich, where and when legally unanswered crime and hooliganism, and the cleanup phase of the anti-intellectual, new-orthodoxy-establishing purges in the universities were fashionable and advanced. Or, if your tastes are more Easterly, see the Chancellor’s comment with a Maoist bent. Different times and cultures, same generally dissent-eliminating, totalitarian theme.

In any case, culture romantics, watch for the upcoming Christian Kristallnacht — coming to a gleaming, inspiring church-structure near you.

Vatican City, BOLO. Your day, we dread to reckon, is undoubtedly coming, in the view of thee so-called New Power Nowers. They know no limits to their lust and reach for total control of the masses, including any recognized and widespread, particularly supernatural competition thereagainst. At least, thus far.
