20 people arrested after violent rally involving Antifa protesters

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.

BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA (FOX NEWS) – 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.
