Former Diablo Valley College adjunct professor Eric Clanton’s pretrial was moved after initially being set for Feb. 22.

Clanton was arrested in May 2017 for the April 2017 protests in Berkeley where an individual wearing a mask assaulted attendees of the “Patriot Rally” with a bike lock.

In May of 2017, Clanton was charged with four felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one misdemeanor offense of wearing a mask to avoid identification.

    The coward is not man enough to admit his assault with a deadly weapon. He hires an attorney to drag the case out until everyone gets tired of it and moves on. “Hey, you can’t remember what happened that long ago.” He deserves a couple of years in prison, and revocation of his teaching certificate, never again to vote or own a gun or bike lock.

    While the crime was by the individual, one would think that a college’s Human Resources, Department Chair, and interview board would (should) have been able to identify Eric Clanton as an unstable individual. I teach similar courses, and easily understand that I am there to teach and do no harm. I can only imagine that the college’s effectual permitting this person to affect students harmed their student body and community.
