Remember this incident at Berkeley?

Well, the guy who did it was arrested yesterday:
University of California-Berkeley officials on Friday arrested a suspect who allegedly assaulted a conservative activist on campus last month.

Zachary Greenberg, 28, was arrested by university police about 1 p.m., after a judge issued an arrest warrant in the Feb. 19 attack on Hayden Williams, the school’s public affairs department said in a statement.

Arrest records from the sheriff’s office say Greenberg was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempting to cause great bodily injury.
A 28-year-old man did this. He's apparently not a student, just some dude walking on Sproul Plaza who felt a need to commit a felony because someone offended his sensibilities by existing. You have to wonder what the hell is wrong with a guy who would do this. Here's a mug shot:

Here was a screen shot of him in mid-rage:

If Mr. Greenberg gets sent to prison, it may not change the world in an appreciable way, but it will remind people of an important distinction -- free speech is free, but actions have consequences.

prison? this is berkley. what he did is a community service to those who run the place. he will not see jail time. not at all.

the only justice this man can recieve is a beat down on the streets by a pod of conservatives... something not to be found in berkley.

We were near Berkeley for awhile during our trip last week. A friend recommended going there and visiting a couple of places he was familiar with. I'm glad we didn't go.

Per Gino's comment, it strikes me that if there is evidence Berkeley officials are indeed tending to allow beat-downs by "the right people", maybe that's a good hint that somebody needs to re-align Berkeley. Not that I'm holding my breath, of course.

For reference, a software engineer. I am going to dare suggest that unless Silicon Valley companies start looking past felony convictions, this may end up being a very expensive mistake on his part.

And if said companies are looking past felony convictions, at least with the "right" people, that could end up being a very expensive mistake on their part, to put it mildly.
