Questions Arise About Violence at Berkeley Free-Speech Rally
Police allowed Antifa group to enter park despite its violations of rules against masks and weapons; 13 arrested
Police said the 13 people arrested Sunday were: Seth Vasquez, 25, of Berkeley; Mark Misohink, 23, of Berkeley; James Dominic, 23, of Oakland; Kristopher Wyrick, 39, of Alpine; Harlan Pankau, 38, of Jamul; Levi Smith, 32, of Sparks, Nevada; Sean Hines, 20, of Santa Rosa; Brittany Moorman, 26, of Oakland; Yesenia Mendez, 22, residence unknown; Emily Gillespie, 24, of Berkeley; Sean Dougan, 47, of Portland, Oregon; Rachel Moore, 40, of Oakland; and Joshua Phillips, 36, of Oakland.
Sunday’s event turned out to be rather one-sided, with a dwindling number of “alt-right” ralliers and many Antifa demonstrators armed and seemingly ready for action.
At least 500 police officers from various agencies were posted around the park Sunday. When the wave of masked Antifa protesters showed up, they were allowed to enter despite their brazen violation of rules.
