Wheeler occupier found NOT GUILTY on all charges!

For the first time, the Berkeley Office of Student Conduct (OSC) lost its case against a student protester who occupied Wheeler Hall on 11/20/09.  Julian Martinez was found not guilty on all counts.  The verdict was read around 1:30 am last night at his hearing on the Clark Kerr Campus.  We highly recommend reading over the de facto summary on our comrade’s live-tweet.  Thomas Frampton from the Campus Rights Project (CRP) ripped it.  Highlights include Thomas telling the panel he is offended as a Berkeley student that this is the standard of justice on campus; pointing out that OSC threw a charge intended for rapists at most of the Wheeler occupiers; and telling the arresting officer that he is an embarrassment to UCPD.  Congrats to Julian, Thomas, and CRP, and ironic kisses to the career functionaries at OSC.

Hands off student protesters!

Abolish OSC!
