Cops Do Nothing As Violence Erupts Between Antifa And Trump Supporters [VIDEO]

Cops Do Nothing As Violence Erupts Between Antifa And Trump Supporters [VIDEO]

So far, just over a dozen arrests have been made after yesterday’s insane Berkeley riots where violence and rioting broke out between a pro-Trump crowd and the anti-facist “Antifas,” who are still very upset over losing the election. But, stranger than a bunch of cry babies are still throwing fists over losing a democratic election is that the cops were caught on camera passively letting it all happen.

After checking dozens of videos, I find that the ones reposted on this page are the most clear and telling of the situation where the pro-Trump crowd was reportedly yelling “Trust fund commies, off our street!,” while dodging tear gas while the Antifas broke through the weak fencing set up to protect the participants at Saturday’s Patriots Day rally.

So, a rally organized for the pro-Trumpers crashed by Antifas dressed with covered faces was quickly overtaken with violence on both sides. If it was a planned rally and a planned counter-protest, where were the cops who knew what would happen next?

TheBlaze reports on what took place in the following videos posted by Shane Butler, an Oakland-based reporter at the liberal magazine Mother Jones.

When he asked a pair of cops by a patrol car why they’re standing back, one told him they were ordered to stand down by their chief.

“That would be a good question for the chief of police,” one officer said.

The other officer deferred all questions to the department public information officer.

“I’ve been wondering, I mean I’ve just been watching people all day get beat up pretty bad and I haven’t seen you guys around much,” Bauer told the officer.

“Mhmm, OK, and?” the officer coldly replied.

Shane posted multiple videos of the violence, including this one which appears to include men dressed like Greek hoplites wearing body cams and someone else in a Knight Templar outfit.

Looks like the Berkeley police were following orders to let the violence happen, or to not interfere until some unknown scenario took place. But with 15 arrests and plenty of livestreamed footage of crime, they were definitely aware that the peace was not being kept on their streets.
