Two undercover police officers at a Donald Trump rally last week said they saw Trump supporters "get punched, kicked and pushed" and "running for their lives," according to a police report.
The plainclothes officers said they did not intervene for fear their own safety would be jeopardized as the estimated 400 protesters developed a "mob mentality."
The officers' observations were included in the arrest report of Antonio Moses Fernandez, 19, of San Jose, who is accused of throwing a metal barrier into a police skirmish line following the Trump rally June 2 outside the San Jose Convention Center. Fernandez made his first court appearance Tuesday and was charged with felony assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer, according to court documents.

and the police were doing what ... writing their report(s) ?
Eventually these fascists are going to run into legal ccw holders who are not afraid to defend themselves from violence
“The plainclothes officers said they did not intervene for fear their own safety would be jeopardized as the estimated 400 protesters developed a ‘mob mentality.’”
Cowards. If I were one of the victims I would sue that police department.
Get those undercovers some warm milk and pillows
It seems like they can justify ANYTHING, as long as they say they were in fear of their lives.
What a disgrace.
Media: What is best in life?
Liberal: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.
Real profiles in courage.</s>
“The plainclothes officers said they did not intervene for fear their own safety would be jeopardized”
Pussies should resign in disgrace.
One suspect was wearing a black shirt and the other one was wearing a red shit.Geez. These violent goons have absolutely no fashion sense. Who wears a red shit after Memorial Day?
The plainclothes officers said they did not intervene for fear their own safety would be jeopardized as the estimated 400 protesters developed a “mob mentality.”
But I’ll bet they would have been more than happy to intervene if some of those attacked had defended themselves with firearms.
To protect and to serve...their own self-interests.
Yep. Don’t get involved! Jus sneak that shield into the back pocket and disolve into the crowd. Pussies.
Fire them now.
This country is bonified Banana Republic now. Just watch, Trump supporters will be killed at one these rallies. If Trump wins there will bloodshed, riots and God knows what else.
This is why the idea of “ you don’t need guns for self- defense. That’s what the cops are armed for” would be funny if it wasn’t so damned wrong! Even when they are watching the crime, they won’t help. But when of them gets hit with a barricade, they spring into action.
If these cowards are unwilling to do their job, they should find another line of work...
