most people are supporting ann coulter with you now counter- demonstrate but now there are counter-demonstrators and the police are trying to keep the peace. >> in a couple of hours, the temperature changes a bit. sometimes it takes more of a violent turn. are the protestors themselves concerned that some of the people we saw at the protest at milo yiannopoulos's speech that they rioted, do they think they may come back? >> reporter: there's always that concern. i have heard that from both sides. there are elements on each side of the equation who have come here for a fight. let's be honest. not the core group. but people on each side who come here to fight. there are no fights now. there is a lot of hope on each side that that doesn't develop. but as you say, as the night goes on and whether this right now appears to be a peaceful rally, if that continues with large numbers that increases
the chances it could get ugly. >> thank you. berkeley police are trying to avoid scenes like this exactly what elizabeth was talking about. things got out of hand before an appearance by milo yiannopoulos. that was in february. 150 masked agitators were setting fires, smashing windows, throwing the barriers against the building. that speech was canceled. today police appear prepared for anything. chopper 5 was above a huge police staging area. we saw long lines of police motorcycles, suvs and bags full of tactical gear. >> kpix 5's da lin is at sproul plaza on the campus with more on a show of force from police. da. >> reporter: ken, a lot of shouting back and forth but overall a very peaceful day here on campus. take a look. the university is not taking any chances. they have a lot of police officers from different agencies here watching over the campus making sure everything is safe. i want to show you some video
taken around noontime. a bit of shouting back and forth as mentioned between the pro-trump people and the anti- trump people. the anti-trump demonstrators were comparing the president to hitler and that has the pro- trump people shouting back saying that's a lie. they also said the university suppresses free speech by canceling ann coulter's scheduled event today. [ screaming ] [ crosstalk ] >> it's a false pretext to conceal the real agenda which is silence of dissent and imposing fascism. >> one called me the "f" word a little bit ago. >> and we haven't even started yet. >> no. >> reporter: i noticed a lot of supporters coming from out of the bay area here as you heard a man who flew in from florida, a trump supporter.

flight status. but today unite clarified its policy outlining who gets bumped and who doesn't when the airline overbooks. do you have frequent flyer status. no. >> no. second to the highest. >> reporter: the policy protects frequent flyers from being bumped. who is first to go? passengers without a seat assignment. next sorted by fare class, pay and itinerary right hand then that group is sorted by the time you checked in. does that bother you? >> they have to set some sort of order. >> reporter: other airlines already outline similar procedures. until now united policy was vague. the new policy prevents people with disabilities and kids flying alone from being bumped. until now, they were black bumped and only if united determined it would constitute a hardship. >> united realized that its policies, its technology, its training, were all inadequate. and they are taking steps to correct that. >> reporter: the new policies were outlined in this report
