lass=”” >While the rest of the world watched a gang of 400 paid thugs surround and attack innocent Donald Trump supporters as they were filing out of the San Jose Trump rally.
But why did the San Jose police stand by and do virtually nothing to help the innocent victims of the gang?
Yesterday, the San Jose Police Department and their mayor issued a statement justifying police inaction. The statement said that the police held off arresting people involved in the assaults because it:
“… had the difficult task of weighing the need to immediately apprehend the suspect(s) against the possibility that police action involving the use of physical force under the circumstances would further [incite] the crowd and produce more violent behavior.”
Conservative writer A.J. Delgado tweeted her interpretation of the statement:
“OH. MY. GOD. Basically: Arresting them would just make them angrier so we didn’t.”
Certainly San Jose police chief Eddie Garcia had to know that at the core of the violence were paid thugs recruited off of Craig’s list at $15 per hour.
As the unknowing crowd left the Trump venue they were surrounded and some were hunted like prey. As the Washington Post reported:
“Videos circulating on social media showed swirling, furious fights spilling from street corner to street corner, often with no police in sight.”
ABC’s Tony Llamas tweeted that some of the protesters were:
“… throwing up gang signs. There were [people] who came to demonstrate & some who just wanted to brawl. [These are] the most violent demonstrations we’ve seen.”
Police Chief Garcia has come under increasing scrutiny for allowing the thugs to attack the Trump supporters. According to “The Mercury News:
“Garcia told reporters … officers held back to avoid inciting more violence and having the crowd turn on officers. He also said the 250 police weren’t enough to control the roughly 400 protesters.”
However yesterday reports surfaced that Garcia is affiliated with the Mexican separatist extremist group La Raza and offered this screenshot from Garcia’s Twitter account:
So just what are the goals of La Raza? According to their founder, Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, it is nothing but a Mexican terror group which preaches white genocide.
“We’re a new Mestizo nation. We have got to eliminate the gringo and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to worst, we have got to kill him. Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes.”
If I were sitting at the top of the Justice Department, I just might call this hate speech – but I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
