2 Berkeley students arrested on suspicion of hate crime, vandalism — Berkeleyside

Update, 9:37 p.m. A second student has been arrested in connection with the case, according to online records from the sheriff’s office. He’s identified in the Inmate Locator system as 21-year-old Peter Estrada. Estrada, also a UC Berkeley student, was arrested on a warrant in Berkeley at 5:10 p.m. Friday. He is being held on $85,000 bail on suspicion of the same crimes Chamu is alleged to have committed. Both are set for arraignment Monday.

Original post, July 14, 11:23 a.m. A UC Berkeley student who said Berkeley police racially profiled him when they arrested him near campus in late June is back in jail in connection with a vandalism and hate crime case BPD said it was investigating last week.


I just assume most of these crimes are provocations. Also, this is why I took off my relaxed rattlesnake don't tread on me sticker (the Navy Jack) before traveling to Berkeley. I didn't want to get my tires slashed. I left on my USSOC sticker because I don't think these bozos are much for reading the semi-fine print.
