UC Berkeley Riots and the Lame Police Response

I recently watched the Berkeley riots. After seeing the protesters break windows, cause fires and beat those waiting the see the scheduled speaker I had to wonder…where are the police?berkeley

The actions of the rioters were “deplorable.”  Why? Because they didn’t agree with the speakers view.  OK, maybe you can engage in a meaningful debate and come away with a different point of view.  No way…who am I kiddin’…no body!!

These self indulged little brats have no intention of listening to any dialog.  Only their own mindset…and don’t confuse me with facts.

What about the cops?  The chief at UC Berkeley, anticipating a ruckus imported over 100 police officers from other California Universities.  OK fine.  The cops were in riot gear.  They could have formed a 2-3 officer deep skirmish line to keep those bent on destruction from doing so.  But NOOOooo.

The Chief, quivering in her Halston boots told the cops not to engage or assist anyone.  She, shamefully, ordered the cops to “shelter in place.”

This had to be a most disdainful order. especially when the officers could see and hear victims being beaten and injured right outside their door.

This is a national disgrace.  The governance of UC Berkeley, especially the Chief got some ‘splanin to do.  How dumb can these people be.  The individuals beaten and injured will turn to the court system (Think Marilyn Mosby) to get redress for their grievances.  What happened to “Serve and Protect?”

Special tip O’ the “Cop’s Perspective” hat to Randy Sutton and the Blue Lives Matter network!!

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!
