From 4 to 6pm late Sunday afternoon, Code Pink protested outside John Yoo's house, despite police presence (number of cops fluctuated between 3 and 2 officers on duty to defend John Yoo). UC police were on the scene as John Yoo is still an employee, a law professor, for UC Berkeley.

John Yoo wrote the torture memos for George Bush, creating a legal framework for water-boarding, starvation tactics, physical endurance tactics, and et cetera.

John Yoo is still seen as a valuable asset to UC Berkeley. It should be noted that when asked about the contraversy regarding John Yoo, UC Chancellor Robert Birgeneau stated: "We're actually a fairly broad church here. We've got the law professor John Yoo, who has been a prime advocate of the US government's torture policy, and the biggest student club on campus is the Republican."

John Yoo can be reached at his Berkeley home: 1241 Grizzly Peak Blvd., Berkeley
There is ample street parking, and a public sidewalk across from his house.
