The controversial San Jose, California, police chief who admitted that he kept his officers in formation instead of protecting Donald Trump supporters during a rally in San Jose last week has been linked with a Hispanic extremist organization that has openly denounced the presumed Republican presidential nominee on numerous occasions.
According to the The San Jose Mercury News, San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia told reporters that it was more important to hold what he called their “skirmish line” than to stop the attacks on individual Donald Trump supporters during last Thursday’s “protests” (read: riot) outside the San Jose Convention Center.
Video showed protesters throwing traffic cones, water bottles and punches at Trump supporters. In one case, a protester’s Trump shirt was ripped off his back by a rioter, and in another, multiple rioters surrounded a car and kicked in its taillights.
“We are not an ‘occupying force’ and cannot reflect the chaotic tactics of the protesters,” Chief Garcia told reporters.
He said that unless the riot was “spiraling out of control,” he preferred to keep the skirmish line.
However, the chief’s impartiality was called into question when it was revealed he had been involved with the National Council of La Raza, a far left Hispanic organization whose supporters have frequently clashed with Trump.
Here’s a screenshot from his Twitter account obtained by The Gateway Pundit:
Boy, I’m guessing he’d be glad to have that tweet back.
Chief Garcia and the San Jose Police Department also issued a ludicrous statement saying that they “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.”
One twitterer summed that bewildering defense up thusly: “Arresting them would just make them angrier so we didn’t.”
The preponderance of the evidence seems to indicate something shocking: This police chief let people get beat up by hooligans because of their political affiliation.
He needs to resign — and if he refuses, he needs to be hounded from office. Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree.
