Campus UCPD report to chancellors and take direction from their chancellor. University of California campus chancellors vet their campus police protocols. Chancellors are knowledgeable that pepper spray and use of batons are included in their campus police protocols.

Chancellor Birgeneau’s campus police use baton jabs on his students. UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau and UC Davis Chancellor are in dereliction of their duties.

UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau and UC Davis Chancellor need to quit or be
fired for permitting the brutal outrages on students protesting tuition increases
and student debt

Ever since the 60s 70s revolutionaries seized control of taxpayer funded academia, costs have soared in tandem with plunging results. The primary objective of these expensive old fashioned factory schools is no longer the education of us kids. Rather, the primary purpose is to instill in our pliable little minds politically correct ideas that further 60s 70s era revolutionary goals.

The hard working minority of Californians who pay taxes are not surprised. They have been getting it "in the end" *(so to speak)* ever since the revolutionaries took control of California Government. The State's hard working taxpaying minority expect politicians to charge them more and more for the "democratic" privilege of supporting the voting majority of dangerous tax eaters, including Government's taxpayer supported Thug people.

Even so, us kids are getting sick and tired of the status quo. Even though most of our outrageously costly tuition is paid for by the State's hard working taxpaying minority, the revolutionaries in control of the university system still keep increasing the token amount we are being FORCED to pay for four years of political indoctrination.

Let's closed down this failed monument to more enlightened *(pre revolutionary)* times.

University of California Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau hijack’s all our kids’ futures.
I love University of California (UC) having been a student & lecturer. Like so many I am deeply disappointed by the pervasive failures of Birgeneau from holding the line on rising costs & tuition increases. On an all in cost, Birgeneau has molded Cal. into the most expensive public university.
Paying more is not a better education. Instate tuition consumes 14% of Calif. median family income! Faculty wages must reflect California's ability to pay, not what others are paid.
Chancellor Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) dismissed many much needed cost-cutting options. He did not consider freezing vacant faculty positions, increasing class size, requiring faculty to teach more classes, doubling the time between sabbaticals, freezing pay & benefits, reforming pensions & health benefits.
Birgeneau said such faculty reforms “would not be healthy for Cal”. Exodus of faculty, administrators: who can afford them?
We agree it is far from the ideal situation. UC Berkeley cannot expect to do business as usual: raising tuition; granting pay raises & huge bonuses during a weak economy that has sapped state revenues & individual Californians’ income.
Birgeneau can bridge the trust gap with alumni, donors, politicians, and the public with reassurances that salaries & costs reflect California’s ability to pay.
Chancellor Birgeneau’s campus police deployed violent baton jabs on students protesting increases in tuition. The sky above UC will not fall when Chancellor Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) is ousted.
