Fearing that his fair city is going to become the defacto front line in the war over the 1st Amendment, mayor Jesse Arreguin is asking the University of California, Berkeley not hold a planned Free Speech Week at the end in September.
Perhaps the mayor should just turn the streets over to the mob, given how his police performed this weekend. After all, that right to assemble thingy in the Constitution is at the whim of whose who are strong enough to take and hold the town square, right?
So how do you bring the dogs of war back to heel after you’ve let them slip? By trying to prevent the target of the violent mob from opposing them in the future?
