Dean of Students Jonathan Poullard e-mailed the student body this evening to tell us to play nice with USC fans. The USC game has always been tense as of recent times, but we can control ourselves just fine, right? It’s easy to play by Poullard’s rules:


* Set a positive example both in and out of the stadium;
* Show respect for yourself, your team, and your university by demonstrating respect towards all around you;
* While you alone are responsible for your actions, you do have the opportunity to set a positive example for others

Right?

1:45 p.m., Unit 2 bicycle racks: Found property, sent to UCPD bike bureau for safekeeping.

See? No one stole the bike! That’s nice. That shows respect for others.

Sunday, Nov. 4, 2007

12:30 a.m., Bowditch Street and Durant Ave: An officer talks to a male student, 21, for public intoxication and crossing against a red light. The officer also talks to a female student, 21, for crossing against a red light.

OK, so at least there wasn’t any harm done. A mere scratch on a glistening record.

Earlier: PoLo: Spies, Suspicion and Sh—Human Waste


A lot happened in the past few days, particularly yesterday. Crossroads was a bedlam (OK, not so much), suspicious things occurred suspiciously and then there was some shit. Literally.

Monday, Oct. 8, 2007
12:35 a.m., Crossroads: An officer talks to a man, 59, about lodging.

We know you can sometimes get two meals for the price of one if you stay long enough, but seriously, Crossroads isn’t that great. C’mon, have you tried the vegan pizza? Don’t.

12:45 p.m., in front of California Hall: BAMN demonstration.

Police logs originally spelled it “BAMM.” Oh, what’s that? By Any Means Maybe is protesting? Better hop to it … in a second. Those people are only sorta into it.

1:56 p.m., Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory: Report of a suspicious circumstance regarding a model airplane with attached camera flying over the Lawrence Lab.

Quick, shine the bat signal! Call the Super Friends! Where’s Wonder Woman and that darn invisible jet? Better not forget that lasso of truth again …

5 p.m., Signpost-16: Report of a suspicious circumstance regarding an individual with a suspicious object.

Hmm.

7:05 p.m., Crossroads: An officer talks to two male students, 17 and 18, about rules violation–blocking the aisle and refusing to move.

They were obviously immobilized by the foul refuse that is the vegan pizza.

7:46 p.m., eucalyptus grove: Trash can fire, caused by cigarette. Extinguished.

The university was right! Save the trees: Cut ‘em down before they burn themselves.

Saturday, Oct. 6, 2007
5:57 a.m., oak grove: Two employees exposed to human waste. Listed as a casualty.

Eww.

Earlier: PoLo: We Got Them Pre-Semester Blues


This weekend seemed to be all about fun and then getting into trouble for having that fun. Drinking, flag-hanging and climbing trees–that’s all about enjoying the summer, right?

No. Why don’t you all just stay inside next to your textbooks and laptop like normal people do? Now that’s real fun.

Monday, July 30, 2007
8:44 p.m., Naval Arch: A report that an unknown trespasser hung a flag from a construction crane.

Who wants to bet it was a pirate flag? Psh. A ninja can take down a pirate any day of the week. And a ninja works an eight day. And we’re also really off-topic now.

Moving on …

Sunday, July 29, 2007
12:34 a.m., Unit 2 Davidson: A suspicious circumstance involving possible lodger.

OK, Unit 2 is colorful and bright, but why would you want to live/lodge there? We hear the Main Stacks is nice (it’s practically a home away from home during finals). Or, better yet, you could even live among million dollar homes.

11:00 p.m., People’s Park: Illegal lodging.
11:45 p.m., People’s Park: Trespassing.
11:50 p.m., People’s Park: Littering.

Sadly, that’s nothing out of the ordinary–that’s pretty much a typical night at People’s Park.

Saturday, July 28, 2007
9:40 p.m., Greek Theatre: An officer talks to a man, 46, about public intoxication and verbal harassment.

After the jazz festival? Maybe those prohibitionists were right. Maybe jazz and liquor are a bad combination. Maybe–

What the hell are we talking about? Drink up (if you’re legal, of course)!

Friday, July 27, 2007
12:17 p.m., Memorial Stadium: An officer talks to a man, 23, about climbing a tree.

You know, there’s always one bad apple that ruins it for the bunch. You know what we mean.

Earlier: PoLo: Apparently, iPods Not Yet Defunct


This is normally the spot we put our summary about this batch of police logs. But it’s almost the Fourth, there’s a party downstairs and the rest of the Daily Cal is on vacation. You know you skim this part anyway. So here, just enjoy the silly antics of others and what kind of schlock cops have to tolerate.

Saturday, June 30, 2007
9:43 a.m., RSF: An officer talks to a male, 25, for rules violation.

You know, rules are important. Don’t wear shoes that scuff up the floors. Wear eye protection when playing racquetball. Sign up for the cardio equipment otherwise you get the evil eye from, like, 20 girls who weight collectively no more than 200 pounds. These things are important, yo.

8:11 p.m., Clark Kerr Campus: A report of suspicious circumstances regarding a high school prank.

Lame. They’re just jealous ’cause we don’t let them in our parties. And for good reason, too!

Sunday, July 1, 2007
3:31 p.m., Beverly Cleary: Reported theft via an open door. Loss of a black iPod, valued at $280.
3:50 p.m., Beverly Cleary: Reported theft via unknown means. Loss of a black iPod, valued at $280.

That’s gotta hurt. If the thief is the same person, he/she can now just barely afford an iPhone. But not the monthly bill.

Monday, July 2, 2007
12:53 p.m., Evans Hall: Report of blood droplets in the west stairwell.

Maybe those shirts really are true. Maybe some Cal students really do bleed blue and gold. Though Evans is an odd place to do so.

4:30 p.m., People’s Park: An officer talks to a female, 28, for indecent exposure.

Yeah, because that’s the real concern at People’s Park. Didn’t they want more transparency with what goes on in the park?

Earlier: PoLo: Fire It Up


It might be difficult to believe, but while you’ve all been huddled in the depths of the Main Stacks, Berkeley has been misbehaving. And not in the fun way (well, except for those naked folks). Here’s a quick recap of some of the less legal goings on of the past week.

Friday, May 11, 2007
6:01 p.m., Dwinelle Hall: Report of a suspicious package. Proved OK.

Nice try, but you’re still going to have to take that final, kiddo.

Saturday, May 12, 2007
9:30 a.m., Unit 3: Vandalism via chalk.

That’s odd. We thought the ASUC elections were over.

12:08 p.m., Peoples’ Park: Possession of an airsoft gun.

Personally, we’d say an airsoft gun is less threatening than a lot of things in Peoples’ Park.

5:37 p.m., Greek Theatre: Male reports injury during course of arrest. Will seek own medical attention.

5:42 p.m., Greek Theatre: Male reports injury during course of arrest. Will seek own medical attention.

Stop complaining about your O-Chem final. At least you didn’t get arrested in the process of getting mindfucked.

Sunday, May 13, 2007
2:37 a.m., Unit 1-Slottman Hall: Victim of alcohol-related illness.

Really, REALLY should have been studying. But who hasn’t made the mistake of saying, “Well, one little drink won’t hurt,” when you’re going through six weeks of lecture notes?

Monday, May 14, 2007
8:44 a.m., Haste Street: Report of theft of children’s playground furniture.

Because stealing candy from a child is just too easy.

6:08 p.m., International House Library: Report of theft of eleven books.

Maybe the thief just couldn’t find them in the library. Books on “The Aggressive Behavior of Sealions Between the Ages of Two and Four” can be awfully hard to come by.

Tuesday, May 15, 2007
11:00 a.m., Peoples’ Park: Dog not on a leash.

Oh. The. Humanity.

Wednesday, May 16, 2007
9:00 p.m., Unit 2-Loading dock: Dumpster diving.

Why is this even illegal? It’s good exercise, it’s cost effective and you don’t have to stray too far from you dorm room.

Earlier: PoLo: All Hot and Bothered over Water


We can understand the importance of water when it’s hot like this in Berkeley. However, things get mighty ugly when water is used inappropriately. Don’t be another statistic. Drink (and use) responsively. Otherwise, you’ll end up in the PoLo.

Tuesday, May 1, 2007
7:11 a.m., Eastside by I-House Lot, Memorial Stadium: chalking.

Damn treehuggers. You’ve got nothing on Student Action.

Wednesday, May 2, 2007
3:00 p.m., Memorial Stadium: Report of drummers disturbing the peace for more than three hours.

What’s with you noisy brats, anyway? Can’t you take that drumming somewhere private, eh? It’s three in the afternoon and you’re ruining the right to take a delicious afternoon nap.

Thursday, May 3, 2007
1:30 p.m., Moffit Library: Eating/drinking in the stacks. One male student, 20, involved.

Oh, that’s hardcore. You know it’s a slow day when this gets mention in the police logs.

Saturday, May 5, 2007
11:25 p.m., I-House: Report of vandalism to window via water bottle.

How exactly does one accomplish that? We guess wet windows equal vandalized property.

Sunday, May 6, 2007
6:00 p.m. Unit 1-Christian: Officer speaks to one female student, 21, and one male student, 20, about disturbing the peace on campus and throwing water balloons.

It seems water is a contentious item on campus. Stop wasting our precious resources, ya heard?

Earlier: PoLo: Campus Plays It Naughty


Despite all the papers due and looming finals, trouble still abounds on campus in some very sexy ways. From Zachary RunningWolf chalking to indecently exposed students disturbing the peace, this past week in PoLo sure got our juices flowing.

**2:04 a.m.**, _University Village: Suspicious circumstance regarding cutting down palm tree fronds. Two male students, 18 and 19 years old, identified as suspects._

Bravo. Talk about putting the lime in the coconut and drinking them both down. Clearly these students allegedly know at where the real party is. It is also comforting to know that there are also tree cutters among us (allegedly).

**12:19 a.m.**, _Sather Gate: Zachary RunningWolf chalking the ground in rules violation._

Someone’s been a bad bunny rabbit. Our favorite canine just got a lot hotter.

h2. Thursday, April 26, 2007

**10:15 a.m.**, _In front of 190 Doe Library: UC Berkeley employee finds bullet._

Yikes.

h2. Friday, April 27, 2007

**10:15 a.m.**, _Moffitt Library restroom: Female student reports seeing peeping Tom._

Creepy fuck. Apparently someone didn’t get the memo that you can put porn on an iPod.

h2. Saturday, April 28, 2007

**1:33 a.m.**, _Unit-2 courtyard: Male student, 23, and 21-year-old male non-student involved in mutual battery. No prosecution sought._

Good old fashioned fisticuffs. It gives us a warm fuzzy feeling.

h2. Sunday, April 29, 2007

**12:35 a.m.**, _Bowles Hall: Officer speaks to male student, 19, about indecent exposure and disturbing the peace._

**12:50 a.m.**, _Sproul Plaza: Officer speaks four students, 18, 20 and two aged 19, about indecent exposure and disturbing the peace._

**2:30 a.m.**, _Haas Pools: Officer speaks to three female students, two 19-year-olds and one 20-year-old, and one 20-year-old male student about trespassing._

We don’t know if these three incidents are related. But the possibility that we missed an epic multi-location campus orgy deeply saddens us.

**5:35 p.m.**, _Bancroft Way and Telegraph Avenue: Officer conducts welfare check on 12-year-old boy faking injury/illness._

UCPD: Keeping tabs on bad little boys.
