‘Peaceful Protesters’ Riot at UC-Berkeley

A report by Reuters news agency today states protesters at the University of California Berkeley destroyed campus property after shutting down a speech by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos. US President Donal Trump tweeted that federal funding to the university could be threatened if it does not allow free speech. Breitbart News states that the speech was canceled by UC-Berkeley police as “security failed”. According to the news outlets, protesters threw police barricades and rocks through university windows, set a university generator on fire, smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper sprayed innocents, set fires on the street, and spray pained the words “Kill Trump” on storefronts.
