One Berkeley officer, Lt. Reece helped to direct operations against the camp.
Reese is holding a “less-lethal” munition that we believe has the capacity to shoot either bean bag or “ricochet” rounds. These weapons are intended to scatter a violent crowd.
They are not supposed to be fired at waist height or higher. They are not to be fired at close range.
They are potentially lethal weapons and this officer 1) aims at protesters at point blank range 2) aims at individuals attempting to document police activity and 3) he improperly displays these munitions repeatedly.
