BERKELEY — A man who was responsible for the assault of a conservative activist on the University of California, Berkeley campus last month has finally been arrested.
UC Berkeley Public Affairs said in a statement that a warrant was issued for suspect Zachary Greenberg and UC police arrested him Friday, booking him into jail at 1 p.m.
The arrest stems from an attack on Conservative student Hayden Williams, who is also a volunteer with Turning Points USA. Williams was displaying signs that read, “Hate Crimes Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims” – a reference to the Jussie Smollett case – and another saying “This is MAGA Country.”
According to KPIX 5, Greenberg was seen on video landing two punches on Williams – one a glancing blow and another much harder directly on his face.
The incident was recorded by two Cal students with cellphones and video of the encounter has since gone viral.
Police will formally present the case to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of the filing of criminal charges, the university said.
Many criticized University of California, Berkeley’s initial response and the time it took to bring the man seen hitting the student while he was looking down to justice.
This attack just adds the the extremely large list of violence liberal Democrats caught or seen using violence toward their political opposition and clearly shows that factions of the party have resorted to extreme measure of violence in the place of civil debate.
While the media paints a picture of Republicans as violent, they seemingly turn their heads to this sort of violence in the name of promoting a political agenda, which in most cases provides a false sense of belief to their viewers.
Case and Point: Watch as Mike Brzezinski, attempting to downplay the President’s ability to reach people directly with out media spin; tell her colleagues that it’s “our job” to control exactly what people think.”
