San Francisco Chronicle-
The battles between far-right activists and their opponents that have roiled Berkeley in the past two years have been organized on social media. They’ve been debated on social media. And they’ve often played out live on social media.
The question now is whether Berkeley police should be using social media to expose people they arrest in the sometimes violent clashes. The City Council will consider Tuesday whether to ban police from posting names, mug shots and hometowns of people taken into custody “unless they pose an imminent threat to public safety.”
