Keep in mind before reading this article officer Frankel was not the officer who took statements or otherwise questioned the two pro-Israel individuals involved in the incident. Nice going Sarah so much for being fair and balanced it just goes to show you how it's not just conservative media that spin stories.
This photo below was recently sent to me (Thursday March 1st) after having been found on some Israel hater's Facebook page. On the same day Jweekly published a more reasonable account of what happened last Saturday that you can read at the link below the photo. Keep in mind nothing has been written about the incident thus far that takes into account statements made by the police officers who questioned the 2 pro-Israel advocates.
On Feb. 25, two days before the start of “Israel Apartheid Week” on the U.C. Berkeley campus, Berkeley police cited two people for using pepper spray during a small pro-Palestinian street rally near the campus. According to a report in the Daily Californian student newspaper, two self-identified supporters of Israel — whose names were not divulged in the press account nor by Berkeley police — showed up at the rally carrying a video camera, pepper spray and a stun gun.
During a subsequent shouting match, the Daily Californian reported, three people uninvolved with the demonstration, one brandishing a large stick, approached the pro-Israel demonstrators and tried to mediate. At that point, the newspaper reported, the pro-Israel people sprayed pepper spray on the “mediators.” Police and paramedics were called to the scene, the paper reported, though no one was arrested and no one required hospitalization.
