    and I wasn't privy to every bit of information.  However, Berkeley had tons of protests.  

    Not all caused security concerns.  Some did.  

    And some involved camping in tents in front of the Chancellor's office with people chaining themselves to things and cause general mayhem.  

    (That wasn't me not supporting the cause, just an observation)

    Like OWS, these protest were mainly peaceful students, however Berkeley attracts a lot of disruptive types that like to embed themselves into these causes and cause chaos.  

    So yes, I'm sure the FBI would watch the crowd for certain people.  I went to Cal when they were eliminating Affirmative Action and there were quite a few militant protesters.  I was also there when they tried to eliminate the Ethnic Studies department and that caused a two week long camp in.
