Depiction: Close up of a young white man sitting in Berkeley's People's Park and contemplating a sappling tree which has been broken at the trunk. Photo caption reads: A University of California student ponders over a broken sappling last night after police raided People's Park Annex dispersing 150 people. Witnesses said officers knocked over a half dozen newly planted trees with their nightsticks and overturned a slide, a swing, and dismantled a tool shed. Police said they were acting on "hundreds of complaints of noise and illegal burning."
