Add comment on:Police Raid Volunteer Farm, arrest 4, & illegally abuse UC Berkeley student
Summary: On Monday, university police raided the all-volunteer farm at the Gill Tract. Four people were arrested. One of them was Brooke Marino, a geography student from UC Berkeley, who was standing on a public sidewalk outside the property. As seen in the vdieo footage, Marino was being nonviolent. Police, however, put her in a "pain compliance hold" and carried her by her neck across the street. Civil Rights attorney Dan Siegel witnessed this, and says the police broke the law by bypassing the judicial system to inflict punishment upon the young farm-enthusiast without a trial.
