BERKELEY HATEWATCH UPDATE: According to this report, the District Attorney is planning to drop charges against the pro-Palestinian rioters who occupied Wheeler Hall, though they will have to pay court costs and may still face disciplinary action from the University.

That’s not terribly unusual in the aftermath of disturbances where no one is seriously injured, but it’s troubling. Would they have done this if the identical behavior had been perpetrated by, say, Klan sympathizers? I doubt it.

I’d still like to see the SFSU videotape made public. (Via an email from Zachary Barbera).
