Photo depicts: A young white man sits on the ground between five armed UC Berkeley police officers in full riot gear. The police wear protective helmets with face shields, protective vests and carry gas canisters and batons. The photo catches the young man with his mouth open as though talking. Miscellaneous people hover in the background and another armed officer stands nearby. Another young white man stands between two officers. He is handcuffed and wearing a plaid shirt, black jeans and Converse tennis shoes. The photo is one of a set of two photos - see photo #2000.1.675. In that photo the same man is being carried away police. It is unclear which photo and event came first.
