Remember this video? It showed a masked coward who was hiding behind a girl sneaking up and hitting a man on the head with a bike lock. After this video went viral the good people at 4Chan started an investigation 4Chan style and came up with a likely suspect- Eric Clanton, a bay area college professor. Several other videos seemed to tie him to other similar violent assaults on people whose free speech he opposed.
Since the outing by 4Chan, Eric Clanton has now been arrested and is being held in a Berkeley jail for the alleged attacks. Because of the seriousness of the attacks the investigation was handled by homicide detectives. Several protestors gathered outside the court house during his arraignment shouting “Lock him up”.
