SICK. Woman Assaulted For Not Joining Occupy Berkeley

An Obama-endorsed Occupy Berkeley protester assaulted a woman with an aluminum water bottle for not joining their local protest.

The Daily Californian reported:
A man threw an aluminum water bottle at a UC Berkeley student Thursday evening on campus, causing minor injuries to the victim’s face.

At about 5:09 p.m., the female student was approached by a man at “the northeast exterior of the Haas Pavilion,” according to a UCPD crime alert. The man asked the suspect if she was going to the protest on Sproul Plaza, and when the victim answered “no,” the suspect yelled at her.

“People like you are the reason that California is in debt,” he said, according to the crime alert.

The suspect then threw a full aluminum water bottle at the victim’s face. The victim then called UCPD and refused medical treatment for the bruise on her cheek. UCPD officers responded to the scene and checked the area, but could not locate the suspect.

The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic male in his early 20s, wearing a brown and green knit cap with earflaps and strings, a black coat and dark pants.

    You mean she “alleged” that. Accused that. Said that.

    No witnesses? No one else found?

    Said the Daily Californian, UC’s student mouthpiece.

    “Obama sponsored”?


    Yeah, right.

    How unfortunate it is.,..that what was intended originally as a peaceful protest…has been allowed to deteriorate into bullying innocent passersby innocently deciding not to get involved with that cause. My hope is the UCPD keep looking for that idiot who perverted the cause of calling attention to corporate greed (which itself is flawed because too many of the ‘Occupy’ traitors ignore the fraud coming from government greed (Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, EPA, and so forth))_ and bust his butt. A sane government would have already apprehended the punk and shipped him off to Cuba without a trial.
