I followed that up with a letter, hand delivered to the US Attorney's office by Move America Forward, written by their attorney, asking for a full investigation of crimes committed in Berkeley.
Today, H/T to A Newt One, I see that yet another business is taking their company out of Berkeley.
A software company in Downtown Berkeley has announced it will be relocating outside of the city, citing what they claim is a "non-response" to crime by Berkeley police officers, who are forced instead to deal with protests at the Marine recruiting center.
Avontus Software, which has been based in Berkeley for more than a year, is one of many businesses affected by anti-war protests surrounding the recruiting center.
The city's decision to support Code Pink and other anti-war groups protesting the center by granting noise and parking permits has been detrimental to the business climate, according to Brian Webb, Avontus Software chief executive officer.
"All they're doing is giving our city negative press-they're removing our businesses," Webb said. "I actually have had to remove our address from our Web site because we received negative feedback from our customers about being here."
As of today, the city council has still not apologized to the Marines for their disparaging remarks. They are still encouraging members of Code Pink and other organizations to break the law and "impede" the Marine recruiters and they are still receiving complaints and suffering for their actions.
This is not going away and Berkeley should be made to understand it.
