Yesterday a group of Antifa thugs openly carrying AR-15’s threatened a reporter, but what was stunning was how the police reacted.
Red State reports that “Yesterday, a group called the Three Percenters had a permit for a rally in Seattle. They were met by the antifa who didn’t bother to obtain a permit, though the police don’t really seem to care.”
Here’s the moment the Seattle police decided, screw the law, lets support the radical leftists:
Then came the death threat:
Red State sums it up brilliantly:
Sort of amazing, really.
The Seattle PD had zero problem with armed people showing up for an un-permitted protest.
They had zero problem with a sidewalk being obstructed or a journalist being rather unambiguously threatened.
And rather than enforce the law, they told a guy engaging in Constitutionally protected behavior–covering this illegal demonstration as a journalist–that he was the problem.
This kind of gutlessness by the police and sympathetic treatment of these thugs by various governmental bodies is going to inevitably lead to violence and bloodshed.
Maybe when these masked Starbucks employees are stacked up like cordwood in the streets, someone will decide that the law should be enforced.
When cops take sides bad things inevitably happen.
Lets hope those responsible are drummed out of the force, and this never happens again.
