LAWSUITS! BERKELEY MAYOR JESSE ARREGUIN AND UC BERKELEY FACE LAWSUITS, MAYOR TOLD POLICE TO STAND DOWN DURING RIOTS – MIKE CERNOVICH PREPARES LAWSUITS

Posted on

 

( NBCbayarea ) While crews are fixing shattered windows and covering “Kill Trump” messages that pockmark the UC Berkeley campus after more than 1,000 people protested a Milo Yiannopoulos speech on Wednesday, lawyers are circling.

Mike Cernovich, whose website describes him as an Orange County-based lawyer, author and documentary filmmaker, reached out on Twitter to people who were victims of “violence at the Berkeley riots.” At least five people and counting have responded to his request.

The rampage forced university officials to nix the controversial Breitbart editor’s speech and put the campus on lockdown.

“My first reaction to the riots was sadness,” Cernovich told NBC Bay Area. “Watching women being hit and maced made me wonder why the far left had become so violent.”

Pictures and videos from the chaotic scene on Wednesday showed protesters – who university officials say were not students – lobbing rocks and fireworks at buildings, setting fires, breaking down police barriers, and smashing windows of banks and other Shattuck Avenue businesses. Fights broke out, a few people were hit with pepper spray, and a handful reported being injured, according to witness accounts.

“We are reaching out to lawyers for a civil rights lawsuit,” Cernovich tweeted on the heels of the violence.
