Violent liberal protesters clashed with Donald Trump supporters last week in San Jose, CA – but it’s the Trump supporters who received the brunt of the blame.
That’s how the mainstream media works. Peaceable Trump fans, bad. Violent liberals, good.
Now, the San Jose Police Dept. is saying it didn’t interfere with the riot for fear of causing a bigger riot…
From BizPac Review:
San José Mayor Sam Liccardo, an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton, launched into damage control mode the day after anti-Trump thugs violently attacked Donald Trump supporters attending a campaign rally in the sanctuary city, as did the chief of police.
While he blamed the presumptive Republican presidential nominee for the violence, Liccardo said he condemned “all acts of violence against people who exercise their rights to free speech and assembly, regardless of their political views.”
San José Police Chief Eddie Garcia joined the mayor in saying violence “will not be tolerated,” even though he fretted in a statement that protecting Trump supporters — see enforcing the law — would further “incite” the mob.
“While several physical assaults did occur, the police personnel on scene 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 insight [sic] the crowd and produce more violent behavior,” a SJPD statement read.
