This Article is perfect for the understudy critic's. It list's exactly what is important for internal affair's experts to know. in the future they might want to list what the suspects behavior was moment's and hours even days before his knowingly unlawful commitment of brandishing his firearm while illegally having it on campus. this guys picture does not fit the profile of what he did, after I saw his picture I thought "did this guy find a gun laying on the Berkeley campus somewhere and was going to turn it in after he possessed it. it might be a good idea for Berkeley and all schools to inform their student's on how to handle a situation of finding a firearm on a school campus cause an innocent person whom has found one picks it up could be shot just for having it in his\her hand.
