    Berkeley protest of Milo Yiannopoulos turns violent, event cancelled - live video

    http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/P...C-10901829.php

    A protest at UC Berkeley turned fiery and violent Wednesday night, shutting down a scheduled speech by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.
    The ********* News editor was set to deliver a speech inside a UC Berkeley campus building but hundreds of protesters began throwing fireworks and pulling down the metal barricades police set up to keep people from rushing into the building. Windows were smashed and fires were set outside the building as masked protesters stormed it, and at 6 p.m., one hour before his scheduled speech was to begin, police decided to evacuate Yiannopoulos for his own safety.
    The Berkeley Police Department said people threw bricks, smoking objects, and fireworks at police officers. University police locked down all buildings and ordered a shelter in place, and later fired rubber pellets into the crowd of protesters who defied orders to leave the area.

    They threw fireworks at the officers? Isn't that assault. That is dangerous.

    I thought Universities were about Free speech? They don't like what this guy was going to say so they set the place on fire and throw bricks at the police?

    I get two sides to a story-- Berkley is pretty liberal - who on earth would schedule something like this with all the protests going on around the world now - like how would they think , at liberal university he would be a boxoffice hit??

    I don't agree w that as little as I respect him, he is a human being and I don't wish any harm on anyone, just karma. I don't want bad juju on me.

    You haven't heard of him? He's gay alt-right. Here's from an earlier op-ed piece from the Cal paper.

    http://www.dailycal.org/2017/01/27/c...s-uc-berkeley/

    Chancellor Dirks chose to use the language of “tolerance,” suggesting that Milo Yiannopoulos’s presence at UC Berkeley is an act of tolerance —*that allowing Yiannopoulos to carry on his “Dangerous ****** Tour,” which has incited violence, hateful rhetoric, white supremacy, transphobia and misogyny, is a defense of Berkeley’s history of tolerance and a fight for the freedom of speech. Mr. Chancellor, we strongly disagree.

    Speech by ********* Editor Canceled as Berkeley Protesters Start Fires, Break Windows

    BERKELEY, Calif. — Feb 1, 2017, 11:35 PM ET

    Yiannopoulos' visit to Berkeley was sponsored by the campus Republican club. The university has stressed it did not invite him and does not endorse his ideas but is committed to free speech and rejected calls to cancel the event.

    Controversy continues to surround the upcoming campus visit of conservative ********* journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, as the campus administration is requiring that the Berkeley College Republicans raise up to $10,000 to host him.

    BCR invited Yiannopoulos to visit the campus as part of his 18-stop tour across U.S. colleges. His impending visit has generated controversy across the campus community given his straightforwardness and extreme conservative views. UCPD has determined the $10,000 to be a rough assessment of the costs of security, according to campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof.
