Trump Supporters Who Were Attacked by Leftists Win Right to Sue San Jose Police for ‘Stand Down’ Orders at 2016 Rally
Fourteen victims of anti-Trump rioters at a Trump campaign rally in San Jose, California in June 2016 filed a class action federal civil rights lawsuit in July against San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Police Chief Edgardo Garcia, the City of San Jose and several named and unknown attackers.
Dozens of Trump supporters were assaulted, spit on, beaten, cold-cocked, egged, chased, tackled and bloodied as they left the San Jose Trump rally by mobs of far left, Mexican nationalist, Socialist, SEIU and anarchist thugs.
One female Trump supporter was egged and spit on by hundreds of Mexican nationalists chanting “F*ck you!”
Another Trump supporter was cold-cocked with a bag of rocks while walking to his car and left bleeding.
One young Trump supporter was followed and cold-cocked and left bleeding as he walked to his vehicle.
Another woman was cornered by a mob of Mexican nationalist chanting “F*ck you!” They beaned her in the face with raw eggs and spit on her.
It was not until she lost her vision that the Marriott staff let her in.
(Note: The liberal Washington Post said she “taunted” them — by wearing a Trump shirt, smiling, and flashing the peace sign!)
They chased Trump supporters down the street.
They beat their heads.
Dozens of Trump supporters were beaten and bloodied.
One black Muslim chased down and tackled a young Trump supporter with his thug buddies. He later bragged about it on Twitter.
Several Trump supporters were cold-cocked and left staggering.
The San Jose police were noticibly absent.
Two of the victims filing suit were featured in national reporting over the attacks on them: A teenage boy who was rabbit-punched and then chased and tackled by the mob, and a woman who was chased, cornered and pelted with eggs and bottles by the mob.
