People Are Upset Berkeley Police Posted Mugshots of Arrested Antifa Members — Here They Are

The Berkeley, California, Police Department caused a stir on social media when it posted the mugshots and names of antifa members on Twitter after they had been arrested.

Antifa members were recorded attacking a Marine Corps recruiting office and threatening members of the press Sunday.

The tweets identifying the antifa members were deleted after a wave of backlash from college professors and people on the internet.

“This is very disturbing,” Veena Dubal, a University of California law professor and former Berkeley police review commissioner, 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.”

So here are the mugshots:

“There have now been 20 arrests, most of them for possession of banned weapons in parks, and on streets and sidewalks. Dozens of weapons were confiscated,” Berkeley police stated.
