California cops: arrest antifascists, but not the white supremacists that stabbed them

California law enforcement pursued criminal charges against eight anti-fascist activists who were stabbed or beaten at a neo-Nazi rally while failing to prosecute anyone for the knife attacks against them, according to police records reviewed by the Guardian.

In addition to law enforcement’s decision not to charge white supremacists or others for stabbings at a far-right rally that left people with critical wounds, police also investigated 100 anti-fascist counter-protesters, recommending more than 500 total criminal charges against them, according to court filings from civil rights attorneys.


Meanwhile, for men investigated on the neo-Nazi side of a June 2016 brawl at the state capitol, police only recommended five mostly minor charges, none related to stabbings.

So, the profession of a police office in California is associated with good-ole-boy-rascist club? I think the new blue California government needs to make some changes with their law enforcement ranks. From what I can tell this rally happened in June of 2016 and the civil rights law suits are happening now.

3. It is so blatant what the cops did. They must have had a pre-agreement as to the plan.

2. New Sherrif in town, maybe this will help:

But the dark horse candidate used the county’s political mood to his advantage, experts said, trumpeting his status as a Democrat and claiming he would be the first Democratic sheriff in the county in 138 years. That message in the nonpartisan race was advertised on social media and direct mailers to voters.
