Violence at UC Berkeley between riot police and students. Notice the students are not armed, not threatening, just gathering to protest. The police decide they want to push back and show some muscle, and are more than willing to use force. Ignorant, untrained, unprofessional bullies. The police were scared and over-reacted. Several students were injured. One was shot in the stomach. Thank god they only give them rubber bullets.
Students in this video were there supporting other students who had locked themselves in a building to protest recent events on campus. Faculty and students are protesting broken promises, the lack of funding for the UC public school system, the forced layoffs of the LEAST paid workers on campus, the mismanagement,lack of transparency and democratic process by the UC Board of Regents, and the excessive fee increases that will make college unaffordable to thousands of excellent but poor students.
