Antifa member arrested for carrying deadly weapon during Berkeley protests pictured with Hillary Clinton

An Antifa member arrested Thursday night for carrying a deadly weapon at the Berkeley protest had met with Hillary Clinton prior to the event.

Berkeley police made a few arrests Thursday night. Of the two women arrested, Sarah Roark, 44, of San Francisco, was arrested for carrying a banned weapon near Bancroft Way and Bowditch St.

Roark had bragged on Facebook about going to the Ben Shapiro event in Berkeley to protest hours before she was arrested.

Berkeley Police posted the mugshot of Sarah Roark shortly after her arrest for carrying a deadly weapon to the Ben Shapiro event. reports: UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said the security measures could cost $600,000. Mogulof called the speech “a successful event” and said the university was committed to hosting speakers like Shapiro in the future.

The evening did have its share of hiccups. Police said three arrests were weapons-related. Among them:

— Hannah Benjamin, 20, was arrested for battery on a police officer and carrying a banned weapon.

— Sarah Roark, 44, was taken into custody for carrying a banned weapon.

The arrests were announced on the police Twitter account.

The demonstrators, however, were largely peaceful. Some chanted against fascism, white supremacists and President Donald Trump. Others were holed up inside a student building, waving signs protesting the university’s decision to allow Shapiro on campus.

Inside the hall, Shapiro addressed a friendly crowd. He encouraged people to hold civil discussions with people who have different opinions, saying that’s what America is all about. He condemned white supremacists as “a very small select group of absolutely terrible people who believe absolutely terrible things.”

The campus and surrounding Berkeley streets were under tight security after a series of previous events turned violent.

City and campus officials anticipated protests against Shapiro, and prepared for possible violence with a variety of new strategies and tightened security. It was not immediately clear whether the people arrested Thursday were protesters.

The Berkeley College Republicans invited right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to speak last February, but the event was abruptly canceled when masked left-wing anarchists rioted outside the event to shut it down.

A planned speech by author Ann Coulter was canceled in April.

Police with riot gear surrounded the plaza outside Zellerbach Hall, where Shapiro spoke.

For the first time in two decades, officers were armed with pepper spray after the city council modified a 1997 ban at an emergency meeting this week.

“We have seen extremists on the left and right in our city,” said Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, a Democrat who backed the police request to use pepper spray. “We need to make sure violence is not allowed.”


  1. The Soros funded groups like Antifa and BLM were schooled and wore body protection to Charlottesville and other violent protests. This incident further demonstrates that the extreme leftist liberals are prepared to use violence and possibly even murder in their civil unrest cause. Soros had boasted of fielding 30,000 violent protesters who would create mayhem in the streets of America this summer. He boasted that he would take down President Trump, the deep state is allegedly trying to assassinate our president and there is grave suspicion amongst the white house secret service staff that President Trump is being poisoned in small doses right now. All of this clearly demonstrates how unhinged and potentially violent the extreme leftist ideology within America is at present.

  2. Bolshevik Zionist Communist provocateur playbook played over and over again and the stupid multitudes fall for it every time with the security forces aiding and abetting the violence by standing down or participating incognito. and of course no one is held accountable, But America is Exceptionable.
    ” The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.” Bolshevik Communist Dictator Mass Murderer Josef Stalin

  3. The article lacks many facts and very vague, no mention of what the weapons were in reference to any of the arrest. I am not defending anyone or any group, but wish to have more information to make a valued decision.
