Yesterday we reported about Pablo Gomez Jr., the radical activist at the University of California-Berkeley accused of murdering one woman and seriously stabbing another. The College Fix has video that shows Gomez harassing College Republicans at a campus event last September:
A Chicanx/Latinx Studies major, Gomez is involved with Berkeley’s Queer Alliance Resource Center and “is a senior climate action fellow at Alliance for Climate Education,” according to their respective Facebook pages.
Sharp-eyed College Fix readers may recognize the student as one of the activists who confronted the Berkeley College Republicans back in September. In the video, Gomez is shown grabbing their Donald Trump cut-out, telling them it’s “f*cked up.”
Berkeley CR President José Diaz had said at the time that the agitators demanded that the cut-out be removed “due to the perceived offensive nature that it represents towards them.”
Berkeley police have not discussed the motive for Gomez’s alleged murder of Emilie Inman and the stabbing of another women, who survived. However, it appears the murder victim did not know her killer:
“The suspect knew his initial victim (the woman who is still alive). After attacking her, he went to the house on Ashby thinking that an old friend/acquaintance still lived there. She had moved out over a year ago but the unfortunate second victim (who was killed) was there, studying. . . . She answered the door and the rest is history.”
Family and friends are mourning 27-year-old Emilie Inman:
On Monday, KRON4 spoke with friends of Emilie Inman, who describe her as an artist, musician, and teacher who impacted so many lives.
“It doesn’t really fully feel like she’s gone because her energy is in all of her friends and her family,” friend Robin Liepmin said. . . .
Liepmin found out about Inman’s murder on Facebook.
“Emilie was a really creative, beautiful individual, completely unique and just had so much light and so many gifts to bring to the world,” Liepmin said.
Inman worked at Sienna Ranch in Lafayette.
The organization describes itself as a family-owned business. Its focus is on youth families, environment, and community. . . .
Inman was a fifth and sixth-grade science instructor.
“She had a lot of aspirations, there was music, she loved kids, and she worked with kids specifically doing outdoor education, and she had a lot of faith in the youth, and just saw the youth as being one of the most important parts of making the world a better place,” Liepmin said.
The victim was a “beautiful individual” who “loved kids” and was all about “making the world a better place,” whereas Pablo Gomez Jr. is a queer activist who is all about hate. And stabbing women, allegedly.
