I never said it would cause them to calm down. Having an indoor venue at a time when less people would be there will allow Berkeley to better manage any issues.
You know what would be really safe? If they let Ann speak while contained within a broom closet, during Spring Break, when no one was on campus. That way no one would get hurt and Ann's right to free speech wouldn't be violated.
200. Regulations Concerning the Use of University Facilities and Services
210. Scope and Purpose
211. These regulations authorize the use of University facilities and services and establish procedures for such uses. The use of University facilities and services not authorized herein or pursuant to other University policies are prohibited. The rights, obligations and liabilities of authorized users and of other persons seeking to use the Berkeley campus are also governed by provisions of the Berkeley campus and University Policies and by state and federal law. All persons on campus property must abide by University policies and campus regulations and must identify themselves upon request to University officials acting in the performance of their duties.
212. The purpose of these regulations is to facilitate the effective use and enjoyment of the facilities and services of the Berkeley campus as an educational institution. Orderly procedures are necessary to promote the use of facilities and services by students and University personnel, to conserve and protect facilities and services for educational use, and to prevent interference with University functions.
So, allow it to happen so it can get prosecuted? Allow innocent people to get hurt or worse, just so we can prosecute? So, if a guy has a gun and he announces that he is going to be at a certain place and a certain time to kill people, we should let him do it so we can prosecute him? We shouldn't try to stop him from doing it in the first place?

The truth is, this isn't going to be resolved until "some heads are cracked" The sooner the better, in part because the sooner it happens the less heads will have to be cracked and those heads cracked, less severely.
The university sent a message to the campus community Wednesday in the midst of uncertainty over whether, or when, Coulter might come to campus. After the university originally canceled her speech for Thursdayand instead invited her to speak there next week, Coulter had vowed to speak anyway; with the university not offering a venue, campus Republican groups had been discussing her possibly appearing on a public plaza, where security would have been challenging.
Just let it be known that you are the one advocating violence here, not 'ole "lefty" me.

The "why" part is they cancelled the event because YAL didn't get their way.
Could you enlighten me on what your acronym means? It seems to be a VERY disparaging term against Latinas, but I don't think that's what you mean?
