How’s it going, readers? Sorry things have been slow over the last couple days, but I’ve had to run various errands to get ready for this big week. More will be illuminated soon, kinda how more has been brought information has been brought to light when it comes to UC Berkeley staffer and rioter, Ian Dabney Miller. Normally, I would use the “allegedly” appellation, but this guy admitted to his violent attack on Twitter. In other words, he’s not the brightest bulb in the box.
The story has since moved on to many other media outlets, including The Daily Caller & PJ Media, among others. The original post here on TheRalphRetort.com has over 185,000 views and is now the most successful post in the history of this operation.But there are a couple important updates to give. First off, UC Berkeley is looking into the allegations. Knowing them, they might not do anything, but they have at least acknowledged that Miller is a staffer and that they know about the incident we reported.
Also, here’s an important excerpt from the Daily Caller piece, in case you don’t feel like clicking it…
In an interview with SF Weekly, Miller, who plays in the band “Kowloon Walled City,” talks about working at the university, saying, “I work at UC Berkeley in advancement communications. There’s really not much to say about it, frankly. It’s incredibly tedious.” It’s the same Ian Miller as the person behind the @teen_archer account, because an archive of the account @teen_archer has the name listed as “Ian Miller” and a bio that reads:
“clawer/chugger in @kowloonwalled, @romancities, & @puigdestroyer. 1/2 of @productiveouts. music, bikes, film, baseball, veganism, radical politics. and kitties.”
But there’s some more news on this, courtesy of the San Francisco Chronicle. They don’t name Ian Dabney Miller, for some odd reason, but they do talk about his current status…
The Chronicle is not naming the worker because he has not been arrested and has not been named as a suspect in a crime. He declined to comment Monday, saying he was consulting an attorney.
Lawyering up sounds like pretty good advice for Mr. Miller, considering the other news I have to share. One of my associates has talked to UC Berkeley campus police, who oddly enough didn’t know anything about this guy until his call. Seems like the school administrators have been keeping them in the dark, hoping that the whole thing will be forgotten.
Apparently we must be the first people to put forth an effort to get in touch with them because all of the information about Ian Miller was a surprise to him. He sounded very happy and commended the fine investigating (he said they should hire us lol). Anyway, I gave him all the info about Ian…who he was, the tattoos, the social media and directed him to your article with all of it gathered together. He said it was well put together for an investigation to move forward. He thanked us profusely.
But from what I gathered from our conversation there had been no investigation planned or any info about Ian Miller which had reached them.
I have confirmed the officer’s name and this story, so hopefully, we hear more about charges being filed soon. There are several other law enforcement agencies who could also step up and file against Miller, so maybe they are on the case as well.
I know one thing, we will not be letting this issue go away easily.
