    I was raised in Berkeley; I'm 48 now and still live in the Bay Area, though I can no longer afford to live in Berkeley.

    All of my life the Campus Police have had reputations as bullies.

    When I was fourteen and walking home one evening through the campus to make my walk much shorter, two officers detained me and called for back-up because I didn't have a photo ID.  I ended up being detained for two hours by six police officers, two on foot and the other four in two cop cars.  I actually thought they might assault me.

    I can't remember what finally made them let me go, but they kept accusing me of lying about my age and treated me like a felon.
