    The UC Berkeley cops and the Berkeley city police were deliberately stood down. It is literally true that they were ordered not to do their jobs and fulfill their duty. That will all come out in this legal action filed by the UC campus wide police organization union. Some heads will roll, and UC Berkeley’s funding is in general jeopardy. Chancellor Dirks is under attack by a California state Assemblyman for his role. You may lament about Trump, but UC Berkeley, its cops, and the Regents are responsible for bringing this on themselves. You might not remember it (I do) that Ronald Reagan rode into the Governor’s office in California, largely on his criticism of Berkeley’s response to campus riots, in 1966. He immediately fired Clark Kerr, the greatest Chancellor the University has ever known.
