University of California-Berkeley, supposedly one of the most ‘tolerant’ schools in the nation for their inclusion of all liberal dogma, created an unnecessary riot over the upcoming speech of guest speaker and Breitbart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos.
This particular riot has now forced the university to cancel Mr. Yiannopoulos’ speech. Along with that, SWAT teams, campus police, and others were available during the riot should things turn violent. The idea is that everyone, including Mr. Yiannopoulos, be safe under the circumstances.
But the latest evidence is now showing that Mayor Jesse Arreguin helped not only to facilitate the riots, but ordered police to stand down.
From Epoch Times:
There are claims that riot police were told to stand down during a Wednesday event at the University of California, Berkeley.
Several photos circulating on Twitter show what appear to be dozens of officers and campus police standing in a student union building as the protests went on.

“The violence was sparked by anarchist groups on campus who invaded an otherwise peaceful student-run event,” he later wrote.
The allegations that police were told to stand down were heavily pushed by right-wing commentator Mike Cernovich, who on Thursday afternoon, tweeted that the mayor of Berkeley, Jesse Arreguin, told police to stand down “and for inciting riots,” while claiming that the FBI’s civil rights section opened an investigation into the matter.

And ZeroHedge reminds us that:
U.S. Code 2385:
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
What do you think? Should FBI begin an immediate investigation on Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin?
