Trump supporters and ANTIFA mobs clashed once again over the weekend in Berkeley, CA. Several pro-Trump individuals were beaten and assaulted with pepper spray. At one point, several black-clad agitators isolated a lone Trump supporter and pummeled him with fists and feet. And according to witnesses, law enforcement watched it all unfold from the comfort of their patrol cars.
Shane Bauer, from the very left leaning Mother Jones, was there and even he was completely shocked at the lack of police response to the violence. The American Mirror documented Bauer’s exchange with an officer at the chaotic scene:
“Hey, how come you guys are hanging back?” he asked an officer standing in an open door of the car and another sat in the back seat.

In March, approximately 500 pro and anti-Trump demonstrators punched, clubbed, and pepper sprayed one another.

Reports indicated that police had allegedly banned anything that could be used as a weapon at the event. However, it appears from photos and videos of battered Trump supporters, they were unsuccessful in their so-called efforts.
