First off, I wanna apologise for the lack of posts. Don’t ever do a STEM degree, you have zero downtime. My entire Christmas holiday was spent revising, doing assignments, and filling out countless applications. Just save yourself and do a political science degree.
Some of you may remember Ian Dabney Miller. If not, let me jog your memory. Miller, a By Any Means Necessary member, was a UC Berkely University employee who rioted during the Yiannopolous event in February last year. Miller beat an event-goer, John Jennings, unconscious and confessed to doing so on his social media. Despite this, Miller was never arrested. Berekely police only like to arrest you if you have a MAGA hat on. The beating was so brutal that Miller managed to break several of Jennings’ ribs even though he was wearing a Kevlar vest.
John’s wife, Katrina Jennings, was also attacked during the event. A man tried to attack her husband, and when she pushed the assailant away, another individual pepper-sprayed her. She was then repeatedly pushed against the barricades, which forced her to climb over them in order to get to safety. The police were inside watching all of this happen. When she asked to be let in to wash the pepper-spray from her eyes, they refused. No one was arrested, in case you were wondering.
Clearly, the event-goers were let down. No one did their jobs to make sure they were safe. As a result, 4 people who were attacked and injured during the event, including the Jennings’, have to take action and to sue UC Berkeley, UCPD, Berkeley PD, the city of Berkeley, and two individuals who they’ve been able to identify as their assailants: Ian Dabney Miller and Raha Mirabdal.
I’ve stuck the lawsuit on Scribd for anyone who wants to read it. Basically, it’s a federal civil lawsuit against the city, the university, and the assailants. As some of you may recall, the police and the university did nothing to de-escalate the situation. Campus police basically trapped them inside Sproul Plaza and let the rioters go at them.
I wish these guys the very best of luck, and I will be posting updates once I get some more news.
