Newly Released Emails Show UC Berkeley Chancellor Didn't Object When Told About Baton Use On Protesters

tylerkingkade:

From my latest on HuffPost:

Linda Lye, an attorney with the ACLU of Northern California, told HuffPost that the emails reveal it wasn’t just a couple of “bad apples” on the police force.

“What this shows is [Birgeneau] was also responsible, in the additional sense of creating the environment,” Lye said. “He set the tone, gave the directive … This is a larger systemic problem.”

On Nov. 28, 2011, Birgeneau told faculty at a meeting that he explicitly prohibited police from using tear gas or pepper spray, but that “unfortunately, we did not at the same time discuss the use of the baton.”

UC Berkeley campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof said the emails didn’t indicate what was authorized, but did tell HuffPost that “any authorization comes beforehand.”

“His comments [in the emails] were neither an authorization for or a prohibition against future use,” Mogulof said. “The policy itself [of no encampments] still stood without any entry into discussion of tactics.”

Prison costs more than an Ivy League Education

thepeoplesrecord:

“America has the highest incarceration rate by population, but is only 6th in the world when it comes to college degrees.”

REALLY?

One year of prison costs more than a year at an Ivy League school?
Something is WRONG with that.
Stand for education and the 99%
Let’s Occupy our minds and think for ourselves!

A bump in the road

Yesterday, around this time we were given a dispersal order. The camp has been taken down. Not sure how it went down exactly, but I believe there was little to no violence… I’ll update if I am told otherwise.
