The FBI is, reportedly, investigating an employee who works at University of California, Berkeley, for possible assault during the riots last week that canceled Milo Yiannopoulos’ February 1 talk.
The employee works in ‘advancement communications’. Via PJ Media:
“Last week, internet sleuth “Pave Darker” discovered a Twitter account with the handle @teen_archer and the name “Eugene V. Dabs” boasting about beating a Trump/Milo supporter outside of the event. “Pave Darker” was able to connect this account to Ian Dabney Miller, a UC Berkeley employee who received $374,802.86 in compensation from 2008-2013, according to University of California Data Analysis.”
Deleted tweets from Miller, recovered by “Pave Darker”, state “hey come get your boy, he got ROCKED #miloatcal” along with a picture showing a man injured, lying on the ground.
While the UC Berkeley website does not show comments from officials, there was a note in Facebook this past weekend, “We are aware of the allegations involving a UC Berkeley employee. UCPD is working with the FBI to pursue all leads in investigating the case and we will provide updates as warranted.”
In the early morning hours after the riots, President Trump stated, via Twitter, “If UC Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”
If Trump is serious, he’ll need to work with Congress. Federal rules and laws exist, beyond the Department of Education (i.e,, Department of Energy for certain academic laboratories). Rewriting the Federal laws so individual states have more say would be a positive, pro-active stance to take.
