Cruz Reynoso

Posted: Tuesday, January 3, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 1:54 pm, Tue Jan 3, 2012.

When former California Supreme Court Judge Cruz Reynoso got a call from University of California President Mark Yudof asking if he would like to spearhead a task force to review the investigation into the UC Davis pepper-spraying incident, Reynoso said just three words: "Are you sure?"

The Herald resident said he had theories as to why Yudof selected him, but he said he was honestly surprised to get the call.

    Darrell Baumbach stated:
    "Maybe the police officers families, friends and supporters could protest the students. Maybe they could block the entrance to the school so these students cannot attend class in protest to how many dollars are spent on them by tax payers. Maybe its time to get radical on the radicals. My only complaint in this whole affair is that the pepper spray was obviouly too weak."

    Maybe we should have no police forces in Universities. Maybe Mr.Baumbach have to many dreams of marching in Berlin in 1939 or in Moscow during Stalin's era. Maybe Mr. Baumbach has two brains and one brain is looking to find the second one. Maybe Mr. Baumbach is just confused in which country he lives.

    Jeff Brandt stated...After the "investigation" we should organize an "occupy Mr. Reynoso's lawn" event and see what he demands be done to those that do not move..

    Excellent point! However, I would think there are better locations to hold such events. Maybe the police officers families, friends and supporters could protest the students. Maybe they could block the entrance to the school so these students cannot attend class in protest to how many dollars are spent on them by tax payers. Maybe its time to get radical on the radicals. My only complaint in this whole affair is that the pepper spray was obviouly too weak.

    After the "investigation" is done, and Mr. Reynoso crucifies the officers for doing their job, we should organize an "occupy Mr. Reynoso's lawn" event and see what he demands be done to those that do not move.

    Like Coaches, University of California Campus Chancellors Who Do Not Measure Up Must Go. UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau’s campus police use brutal baton jabs on students protesting Birgeneau’s increases in tuition. UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) is in dereliction of his duties.

    UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau’s campus police report to the Chancellor and the campus police take direction from the Chancellor. University of California (UC) campus chancellors vet their campus police protocols. Birgeneau allowed pepper spray and the use of batons on students in his campus police protocols.

    Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau must be fired for the brutal outrages on students protesting Birgeneau’s tuition increases.
