There have been some signs placed around campus by The Berkeley College Republicans. Two students destroyed a Trump yard sign and one of them tried to run a Republican college member Naweed Tahmas with his bike. It is obvious that Berkeley campus is not putting a stop to the series of vandalistic acts that have been targeting their conservative students. A student was arrested on Thursday after he was caught destroying signs and was cited for a misdemeanor and vandalism charge. One student was caught on video smashing up a wooden sign, and then proceeded, with no shame, to ask the camera if the sign could be used as compost.
The university police found one of the students and arrested him. He was released within an hour and was cited for misdemeanor vandalism charges. SF Gate reported that the student posted about his arrest on Facebook after he was released. “UCPD used an hour of their resources to detain me for an hour over a Trump placard. I almost became a hashtag because UC Berkeley protects racist organizations,” he wrote. Tahmas wasn’t deterred by the incident. Instead, he said it made him more motivated to get the message of College Republicans heard around campus. “It’s just more motivation to keep going out there and working hard and being out there for the community. And encourage open discussion and open dialogue,” Tahmas said.
