University of California, Berkley cannot and should not risk liability with conservatives (possibly armed) carrying on like thugs.

If she comes on campus it is at her own risk. 

What has been occurring at UC Berkley should not be condoned by anyone, including Ann Coulter.

They are nothing but a bunch of brawlers. The so called demonstrators are not demonstrating anything, they are working up a sweat over violence they can visit to the Berkley campus without interference. The police don't get involved until the businesses are opening for the evening.

If Coulter goes to the thugfest she should stand among them and understand how it feels to be on the receiving end of the violence she advocates. She should come to understand the end product of her hate mongering. Take a few blows for the gipper, Ann. Know the fear of wondering who is carrying a weapon and who is not.
