Not only are we under violent siege on the streets of this country, but we can be arrested and sent to prison for defending ourselves when attacked.
The New York Police Department announced that it has enough evidence to charge nine members of the right-wing group Proud Boys and three protestors with various counts of rioting, assault, and attempted assault in connection with a brawl that erupted between the two sides a few blocks from a city Republican club following a speech Friday by Proud Boys leader Gavin McInnes.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said Monday that police recovered multiple videos of the incident and have spoken to witnesses and sources as they piece together what took place in the moments after Proud Boys and associates left the the Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan.
“This is an active investigation that literally as we were preparing to come here we are identifying additional people involved,” Shea said. Illustrating just how fluid the investigation is, police updated the total number of people they are seeking from 11 to 12 in the middle of a briefing Monday afternoon.
The update from the NYPD came as political backlash over the savage incident continued to grow with City Council members criticizing the department for not doing more in the moment and Gov. Andrew Cuomo calling on FBI and State Police hate crimes task force to assist in the investigation.
What the hell does the FBI have to do with a street fight?
“The video images that everybody saw from Friday night are certainly disturbing and outrageous,” police commissioner James O’Neill said. “There is certainly no place for that kind of violence or disorder anywhere in New York City. We will make arrests, but quite frankly we need the public’s help.”
In the 25-minute briefing, the NYPD gave a detailed account of what happened outside the club after McInnes’ controversial appearance.
Shea said the Proud Boys left the club around 8:20 p.m. and crossed the street. They were separated from protesters by uniformed NYPD police officers on scooters. The officers forced the Proud Boys south on Park Avenue and 84th Street as the two sides shouted vulgarities at each other.
Video shows protesters, whom police described as antifa, and Proud Boys in the middle of the block on 82nd Street brawling approximately three minutes after Proud Boys left the club. Police believe six protesters, shown on video wearing black masks, headed north, and circled the block to “intercept” the Proud Boys on 82nd Street between Park and Lexington avenues, Shea said.
Yeah so the police separated them, then the antifa went around to attack them later, outside of the realm of the police.
When you have been waylaid by enemies, you must defend yourself.
But Proud Boys are being charged. For being ambushed.
The video shows at least one of the protesters hurling what police believe to be a bottle and throwing punches as the Proud Boys came into the frame punching and kicking the protestors. Shea said about 38 seconds elapsed between the time when the masked protesters threw the bottle and when uniformed officers arrived on the scene.
McInnes said the video proved anti-fascists started the fight. “This is a little awkward for the Daily Beast narrative isn’t it?” he wrote The Daily Beast with a link to the video, which was already described in this article, at length. “Turns out it was antifa who started the fight.”
A video by filmed by photojournalist Sandi Bachom shows Proud Boys beating people on the street while shouting homophobic slurs at several men as they kicked and punched people who laid on the ground.
O’Neill didn’t rule out potential hate crimes charges, but said, “we’re still in the process of investigating. We want to talk to as many people as possible before we make that characterization.”
The fact of the matter is, whoever punched who, Antifa are an NPC terror group of programmed bots sent out by the elite establishment of this country to violently attack anyone who disagrees with the mainstream narrative.
They show up to these events for the purpose of committing violence. They do not show up merely to chant these stupid slogans (although that would be enough reason to kick their asses, to be honest).
Furthermore, this isn’t some secret. These groups are all very open about the fact that they promote and engage in violence against anyone who they view as committing thought crimes. You can read it on their own websites and publications, you can watch speeches of them saying it.
And we now have three years or so of watching them do it in this country, and decades of watching them do it in Europe.
These people are terrorists.
When a mob of them attacks, making any attempt to figure out who threw the first punch is simply victim-blaming.
This is the same thing with charging people who defended themselves at Charlottesville.
These people COME AT YOU.
We have a “justice system” that is literally in league with terrorists.
Yes, they charged three of them, but you know they will get off on the charges – just like the BLM rioter that got charged and was left off at Charlottesville, even while the people he attacked were sentenced for defending themselves against him.
This situation is insane. It is one thing for the police to refuse to interfere in violent street brawls, but if that is their position, they should never be able to charge anyone for anything and the chips should just fall where they do.
