Police Neutrality Concretized

When police remain neutral between criminals and law-abiding citizens, who do you think wins?

If you’re not just quite sure — or if you’d just like a dramatic illustration — watch this mind-boggling video of Berkeley protesters forcibly preventing people from peacefully conducting their business at a local Marine Corps office.

Nick Provenzo has created a petition condemning “the resolutions of the City Council of Berkeley, California which declare that United States Marine Corps recruiters are ‘uninvited and unwelcome intruders’ within Berkeley city limits and applauds those who choose to ‘impede’ the Marines in their recruiting mission.”

I have chosen not to sign the petition, as much as I abhor the City Council’s actions. I cannot reasonably pledge “not to conduct any business within the Berkeley city limits or patronize any company which has its headquarters within Berkeley,” as it requires.

However, if you feel you can do so honestly, please do sign the petition. Last I read, it has over 4,000 signatures. More would be better.
