Evidently the annoying and self-righteous SAH folks are getting some more mileage out of this incident. The annoying and self-righteous professor might have thought about this before she mishandled the confrontation with the protest group.

The problem behavior came from an associate professor, not from a student. Perhaps Vice Chancellor Young needs to write a similar screed to professors giving suggestions for how to behave in such incidents. It seems to me that Prof. Miller-Young is in need of such education.

I agree there were many more better ways for the professor to handle her disagreement with the SAH bunch than the way she actually did. It seems to me her actions played right into the hands of the SAH, giving them more publicity for their cause and allowing them to milk it for all it's worth.
On UCSB Police Department Releases Professor-Protestor Incident Report

It will be interesting to see what criminal charges [if any] the DA's office files re this incident. IMO while they are annoying and self-righteous, the SAH demonstrators did not violate any rules, laws, policies or regulations. The report reads like the equally annoying and self-righteous professor is guilty of battery, vandalism and theft, and there were probably about 250 better ways the professor could have handled herself.

Sbresident2 has a good point. This isn't the first time I've seen intoxicated college-aged people acting stupid in Isla Vista, and a crowd not liking how an arrest is made, making the crowd even larger and further inciting an already rowdy group of drunks, requiring riot-control techniques to quell the unrest. The police might consider using a lower-key approach when they have to arrest someone in a crowd like this.

You would think these two sh*theads are on security camera footage somewhere, and that someone in IV knows who they are. I hope the cops identify and arrest them soon.
On UCSB Police Release Sketch of Rape Suspects

Somehow I don't see the University augmenting the UCSB Police Department's budget enough for them to hire five more police officers. I'm betting Chancellor Yang means he'll free up enough money for UCSB PD to hire five more CSOs. CSOs are UCSB students who work for the UCSB PD part-time. They don't cost anywhere near as much as police officers.
And, Indy, I believe it's the Clery Act, not the Clergy Act.

Well, blah, it seems to me that the police are reporting what is reported to them. If the police aren't told about a crime, then obviously they can't report it in their statistics or notifications. I don't think the police are trying to hide or suppress anything here, but your mileage may vary.

There are newer laws in effect requiring this, blah, hence all the notifications. See the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act", formerly the Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act. The UCSB Police website has a link to the information they are required to release [police.ucsb.edu].

A conflicts check is standard procedure before an attorney can agree to represent someone, and Mr. Cappello no doubt knows this. His faded recollection explanation is disingenuous, and evidently Judge Anderle knows this, too.
