“A large poster at UC Berkeley of Kate Steinle was torn and trashed by vandals just one day after it was used to honor her memory and mourn the verdict that allowed her killer to escape a murder charge.
The vigil included candles which spelled out the name Kate, flowers, and an easel which held aloft a poster of Steinle’s smiling face.
“The burden of tragedy no longer solely rests on the shoulders of her family, but on the shoulders every American,” Naweed Tahmas, external vice president of the Berkeley College Republicans, said during the event.
“However, when illegal immigration policies kill Americans, we are told that we must remain silent. The media lectures us on how we are politicizing a death,” he added during prepared remarks. “The media and our politicians want to erase Kate’s name and story from history. It’s on us to speak the name of America’s lost daughter: Kate Steinle.”
“We wanted students to see it in the morning,” Tahmas told The College Fix.
Instead, the poster was torn up and thrown away.”
