Some Berkeley students finally got what they deserved this week after they wrote “f**k white people” and “kill cops” in graffiti.
Ismael Chamu and Peter Estrada were both arrested under the suspicion of “felony vandalism causing $400 or more in damage, the commission of a hate crime, hate crime enhancements and conspiracy.”
This came after series of graffiti damage incidents were reported in the area, and few incidents of slashed tires.
Some of the graffiti said “F**k white people,” “Class war,” and “kill cops” with an anarchist symbol.
one graffiti read, “F**k liberal scum,” meaning that an anarchist Antifa (anti-fascist) was the creator of the graffiti, as Antifa often target so-called “liberals” for not being radical enough.
Chamu was arrested another time and he drew the attention of the media because he accused the police of racially profiling him.
He posted on Facebook, “I was kidnapped by armed agents. I was humiliated. I have been traumatized. I still feel shock and pain and anger. I am just glad to be free. At Least feel the illusion of freedom.”
“The Police racially profiled me for being Mexican. For looking like a ‘Burglar’ for appearing ‘Dangerous’,” he wrote.
BPD Chief Andrew Greenwood stated that Chamu and the other person were arrested just after 3 a.m. Wednesday in the 2300 block of Warring Street because the police were looking for suspects in a robbery that just happened. They were held in custody “because they matched the broadcast description” from a “‘hot prowl’ burglary” — where victims are inside at the time of the crime.
An officer saw Chamu hide behind a car when the police were approaching, and he dropped something down, an officer found a knife under the car later during the investigation.
The knife was a6-inch knife and 2.5-inch blade. The police arrested Chamu for possession of an illegal weapon, the spring-loaded folding knife. He was not identified in a line-up as one of the burglary suspects.
Both men are being held on $85,000 bail.
