Casey Goonan arrested as suspect in Berkeley Arson Attacks

The "Palestinian Affinity group" claiming responsibility for arson attacks at UC Berkeley appears to be one man, Casey Goonan.

Casey Robert Goonan, 34, of Oakland, was arrested on Monday and is currently held in Santa Rita jail on 1 million dollars bail.  He was been accused of involvement in at least 4 arson fires on and near the Berkeley campus.

Goonan has a Ph.D. in African Studies from Northwestern University. He received his BA from UC Riverside in 2013, and his MA in African American Studies in 2019.

One can only imagine how proud his parents must be feeling now.

As reported by the Berkeley Scanner

Goonan is now facing multiple felony charges,,, including "the possession and use of destructive devices and multiple counts of arson."

Casey Goonan has a history of unhinged violence, and the hammer-wielding Goonan was implicated in the vandalism of a hotel last year.

Goonan will be arraigned Thursday morning.

It's crazy to me people are throwing their lives away to show allegiance to completely anti-american, anti-christian, anti-semitic, anti-rule-of-law causes that are primarily led by de facto murdering and raping terrorists. this is insanity.
