Law professor John Yoo of Berkeley’s Boalt Hall finds himself under serious pressure to resign ["Debate over Boalt prof hits graduation ceremony," May 25]. What criminal act did he commit? What did he do that was morally reprehensible? Answer: He wrote a legal brief. I’m reminded of when Tom Bates, Berkeley’s mayor, after running for election in 2002, was found to have confiscated 1,000 student newspapers that endorsed his opponent. And I recall back in 2000 when a rowdy crowd of so-called progressives prevented former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from giving a speech at the Berkeley Community Theater.
