Arrests at Protest Over Berkeley Professor

Arrests at Protest Over Berkeley Professor
August 18, 2009

Authorities arrested four people Monday at a protest at the University of California at Berkeley over the continued tenure there of John Yoo, a law professor who during work in the Bush administration wrote several memos used to justify the use of torture on suspected terrorists, the Associated Press reported. Yoo's position at Berkeley has been defended by law school leaders on academic freedom grounds, but others have argued that his actions were so reprehensible that normal standards shouldn't apply.
