[Ed. – No punishment for violent crimes against Trump supporters]

A former Diablo Valley College philosophy professor has taken a plea deal resulting in three years of probation for attacking Trump supporters with a bike lock, Berkeleyside reported Wednesday.

Eric Clanton was previously charged with four counts of felony assault with a deadly weapon, causing great bodily injury after he assaulted several conservative demonstrators at the so-called “Battle of Berkeley” last year.

Clanton was identified by 4chan sleuths as the antifa goon who committed the violent assaults during what was dubbed a “free speech” rally in Berkeley on April 15, 2017.

This brutal sucker punch was captured in a video clip that went viral.

Clanton was supposed to have a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, but there was no hearing.

Instead, the violent antifa thug got a sweetheart deal that the media only found out about after it became available online.
