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.

The article goes on to state the following:

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.

“This is very disturbing,” Dubal told The Guardian. “It seems like a public-shaming exercise, which is not the role of the police department…They are making it really accessible for folks who might wish these people harm to locate them.”

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguín said the police “did a very good job” handling the rally. But he said he spoke to police about the posting of mugshots on social media.

“We need to look into this and discuss whether this is an appropriate practice going forward,” Arreguín said.

The Sunday protest began after two groups of “alt-right” protesters announced plans for a “No to Marxism” rally at the city’s Civic Center Park earlier in the week. That prompted plans for a “Sweep Out The Fascists” march and counter-rally that drew hundreds of people downtown.

Officials said three people suffered minor injuries after a group of “extremists” threw “explosives” — believed to be fireworks and flares — at police and Alameda County Sheriff’s officers. No members of law enforcement were hurt.

  1. “Put the demonstrators in danger” for putting up their mugshots? LOL! These bastards ARE a danger to everyone and should be physically handled. They are violent Communists. Swift justice for them. Firing Squad or Hanging!

  2. Spending all their money for black clothing and bandannas to cover their ugly faces, someone needs to start a GoFundMe drive to buy these creeps some makeup…//sarc off//
