I don't know the full story on the Berkeley protests. I'll admit that. But this doesn't look good. Look at that video clip. There doesn't seem to be any provocation for that, not at all.

And "nudging"? Nudging? Really? I'm not going to blame the whole police force because of the actions of a few, no more than I'd blame all of Occupy Wall Street for the actions of a few, either.

But what kind of journalism is it to call this kind of thing "nudging with batons"?
