BERKELEY (CBS SF) — University of California campus police have released several photos of people believed to have information about suspects allegedly involved in a variety crimes committed earlier this month during a protest against far-right writer and speaker Milo Yiannopoulos.

According to university officials, the protests on Feb. 1 caused more than $100,000 in damage to the University of California at Berkeley campus, not counting more than a dozen businesses that were vandalized in the city’s downtown area and Telegraph corridor.

  1. The mayor of Berkeley should be locked up for not responding to the criminals who got away with damaging windows and destroying property of our community. These criminals should have been arrested and locked up. then sentenced for their felonies to the MAX, and held accountable for paying all costs of the damages and sentenced to at least one year in jail. They now think that the next time a protest happens they can break all laws and do it again. What the hell was he thinking? N.M.

  2. Weeks later. This is called “cya”. When they are questioned about their lack of response, they can claim they put out photos and asked for community support, omitting this occurred weeks later when nobody remembers anything about random people they encountered. Even if they do identify people, it’s weeks too late to build a case against them.
