A couple of months ago I tried to get tickets for the Milo event at Berkeley and it was already sold out. Watching the coverage last night on twitter I'm sort of glad I didn't get them. I'm all in on going to see a protest, but after the San Jose thing I feel I need to be slightly more careful. A fight broke out right next to us and a knife fell out of one of the guys clothes. It's over on my youtube channel. That video got over 200,000 views!
The sad thing about Berkeley these days is that I feel 10 times more nervous going into Berkeley than I do going into East Palo Alto! Seriously. I mean, it's a safe city (ish) but there are so just many vagrants and bums.
I do have to add that it's refreshing to see protesters vandalize their own city instead of Oakland.
