Last year, rabid liberal protesters physically assaulted Trump supporters at a rally in San Jose, California. Now, it appears a federal judge is going to let them get a taste of justice. As Lifezette reports:
A judge has refused to toss out a federal lawsuit against the city of San Jose, California, in which the city police are accused of allowing an angry mob of left-wing agitators and violent protesters to target peaceful pro-Trump ralliers.
Several people were injured during the June 2 rally. A picture of a pro-Trump woman being pelted by eggs during the incident went viral last spring.
The city was sued by attorney Harmeet Dhillon, in a pro bono case, representing some of the victims. Dhillon, the national committeewoman of the California Republican Party and a contender to lead the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, also attended the rally.
“Citizens ranging from their teens to their 70s were assaulted, abused, chased, hunted, and terrorized in a situation for which the city is responsible, and must now answer,” Dhillon told LifeZette. “This lawsuit seeks to vindicate the principle that every American — regardless of his or her political beliefs — is entitled to equal protection of the laws, and to the rights of free speech and free assembly, particularly in the support of their candidate of choice.”
The lawsuit alleges that San Jose Police, and the city, stood idly by while these people were attacked. It’s also worth noting, as we did at the time, that the liberal mayor of San Jose BLAMED Donald Trump for the violence.
We hope these Trump supporters will get the justice they deserve. Political violence, and a state that fails to act against it, are completely unacceptable.
