    Do you think it was wrong for the Police to post the mugshots of the Antifa protestors, many of them were covered up and wanted to remain anonymous some professors believe the Berkely PD doing this was very wrong and they shouldn't have posted the images on the net of the protestors who are basically anti-fascism and were protesting the alt right groups are now in Danger since their public image is posted online.

    Several California professors slammed the Berkeley Police Department after it posted the mugshots of Antifa protesters arrested Sunday at a rally where windows were smashed, citizens were punched and "dozens of weapons" were confiscated by cops.

    Berkeley cops said Sunday that 20 people were arrested demonstrating against a rally organized by so-called "alt-right" groups. The mugshots of those arrested, their names and what they were arrested for allegedly doing was posted to the BPD's Twitter account -- a practice that is not unusual. The mugshots were posted before the protesters were formally charged. The department told The Guardian on Monday that the protesters' cases were not brought before prosecutors.

    Veena Dubal, a law professor at the University of California, said she found it “disturbing” that the police department would post the mugshots and risk the possibility of putting the demonstrators in danger.

    “This is very disturbing,” Dubal told The Guardian. “It seems like a public-shaming exercise, which is not the role of the police department...They are making it really accessible for folks who might wish these people harm to locate them.”

    BERKELEY POLICE ARREST 20, SEIZE 'DOZENS OF WEAPONS' AT OPPOSING PROTESTS

    Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguín said the police “did a very good job” handling the rally. But he said he spoke to police about the posting of mugshots on social media.

    “We need to look into this and discuss whether this is an appropriate practice going forward,” Arreguín said.

    The Sunday protest began after two groups of "alt-right" protesters announced plans for a "No to Marxism" rally at the city's Civic Center Park earlier in the week. That prompted plans for a "Sweep Out The Fascists" march and counter-rally that drew hundreds of people downtown.

    Officials said three people suffered minor injuries after a group of "extremists" threw "explosives" -- believed to be fireworks and flares -- at police and Alameda County Sheriff's officers. No members of law enforcement were hurt.

    Berkeley police also said that "an extremist element among a large group" damaged 21 city vehicles, setting one on fire, and slashed their tires. The group also set fires in trash bins, which were extinguished quickly.

    Videos taken during the protest also showed masked Antifa protesters smashing the windows of a U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office and another demonstrator sucker-punching someone.

    But Jay Kim, the executive director of the National Lawyers Guild local chapter, said he felt police were targeting “anti-fascist protesters.”

    “It really seemed to us like the Berkeley police department was there to…target the anti-fascist protesters,” Kim said.

    Kim said about 21 people contacted the NLG regarding the arrests, claiming the “vast majority” arrested were anti-fascist protesters.

    Byron White, a spokesman for the Berkeley Police Department, defended the release of the mugshots
    People are coming from out of town and bringing weapons and are committed to violence…We don’t want people to be able to do that with anonymity,” White said.

    I think it's a good idea to post the photos of people who wear masks to commit crimes.

    First question is what other mugshots are posted online?
    If they are only posting antifa they could have a problem.

    Releasing mugshots is not doxxing - mugshots are a matter of public record. They got weapons charges, for bringing them to a peaceful demonstration. Local news stations all have mug shot sections, suddenly it's a bad thing when cuck left get them.

    Seems like something the community should decide since they're the ones who live with the consequences. There doesn't seem to be a privacy issue and I doubt people will be targeted for it. I wouldn't put up mugshots of people arrested for failing to disperse or whatever, but for weapons charges and vandalism? Seems okay.

    is it just me, or are these definitely not students of berkeley? i know berkeley is a town, but its a pretty small one thats mostly made up of the school.

    i dont see a problem with posting their photos. my town does the same thing. i know a lot of people disagree with that though. cops and "to catch a predator" deal with similar complaints all the time.

    I don't have a problem with it as long as they are singling out the protesters. Seems like common practice to post mugshots.

    The mugshots are both fair and just. Those professors can go suck an egg.

    Sure, that is why they got arrested. Like I said I don't have a problem with them having the pictures on their website, as long as they arent singling them out. I don't believe they are, as this seems like a common practice across the nation. If they are only posting their pictures because they are protesters, then I would think you could see why it would be a retaliation issue.

    ANTIFA doesn’t deserve any protection they wouldn’t offer to others. Fuck them, dox the fuck out of them.
