Berkeley Demonstration Discussed on Airtalk

From KPCC's Airtalk with Larry Mantle: (2-9-17)

Breitbart News Editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ visit to UC Berkeley last week reportedly elevated some concerns about on-campus demonstrations.

According to an article by the Los Angeles Times, 100 to 150 demonstrators disrupted otherwise peaceful protests, causing a fire to erupt from a diesel-powered klieg light. Half a dozen windows were also smashed.  

Claiming the incident was unprecedented, Berkeley officials are looking to strike a balance between free speech and keeping protests from becoming violent. Larry speaks to UC Berkeley campus police and officials today to find out how they plan to move forward.

Guests: Dan Mogulof, assistant vice chancellor and spokesperson for UC Berkeley, Margo Bennett, UC Berkeley campus police chief, Joe Cohn, Legislative and Policy Director for the Foundation of Individual Rights in Education (FIRE)
