Commentary: UC Berkeley sex soliciting
A little over a year ago, UC Berkeley police arrested a university lecturer on campus for allegedly soliciting lewd acts in a campus bathroom. He’s suing citing sexual discrimination and invalid basis of arrest. The lecturer, who remains anonymous, retained attorney Bruce Nickerson, who says the arrest targets and threatens gay men. Holly Kernan interviewd Nickerson on Crosscurrents earlier this month.
Matt O’Brien heard what Nickerson heard that interview and offers a different perspective on the situation – one shaped by his own experiences while an undergraduate student at Cal.
