letter to Oakland concerning cops on campus
Hello Oakland civic leadership;

Who authorized sending twenty-four Oakland cops, in riot gear, plus seven or eight city vehicles, to UC Berkeley in preparation for an assault against the latest free-speech claims of fifteen or so non-violent hunger strikers and their supporters at California Hall today, monday, 5.10.10 in the afternoon. Approximately 4:30 p.m.

If you people can't find enough work for Oakland police, or if the cops are just sucking-in overtime pay, billing the University, either way, you should stop this kind of crap. Mutual assistance? Poor excuse.
