Description: Two close up photos show a man with long hair, sunglasses and a bandana reach out and hug a Berkeley police officer who's wearing a helmet with face shield, sunglasses and riot gear. The next photo shows the officer smiling at the student as they talk engagedly. A crowd watches on and smiles. Photo caption reads: Things were not all violent when police and demonstrators met at the site of the People's Park, Saturday. Here one peaceful youth hugs a Univeristy of California campus policeman, surprising him. Later, about 500 demonstrators clashed with police on the second aniversary of violence at People's Park.
