Leftist senator says bullshit:

We have no equivalent to the dark carnival that is a trump rally. This is not a thing on the left. We just argue about healthcare and climate and sometimes relitigate 2016 but we are not actually out of our minds.
Carefully overlooking the riots, arson, assaults, attempted murders, etc.  And it looks like one of the police departments that stood aside and let them do it may just pay the price:
Supporters of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump who were met with flying eggs and punches from counter protesters during a June 2016 San Jose campaign rally can sue the city’s police for allegedly failing to protect them, a new court ruling said.
Trump supporters – many sporting red Make America Great Again hats – who were attending a rally at the McEnery Convention Center were met with hundreds of anti-Trump protesters as they were shepherded out of the building via a single exit.
The suit’s 20 plaintiffs claim in a lawsuit that police knowingly ordered them to leave through an exit where protesters were waiting, despite the existence of a safer route and other exits, the San Francisco Chronicle reported last week.
 This ought to scare hell out of every LE agency out there that stood down while the leftists rioted.  I hope it does.  And the politicians involved as well; if they know they can lose their ass for giving 'stand down' orders, they might not keep playing politics with peoples' lives.

They're not in trouble for standing down. They're in trouble for sending them through an exit that didn't work out.

It's an affirmative act, not an omission, that they are on the hook for. That's not going to change anything, I think.

No matter the outcome of the court case neither the badgemonkeys NOR the politicians holding their leashes will suffer ANY CONSEQUENCES. The cost of the investigations.....paid for by tax dollars. The cost of the courtroom and trial.... paid for by tax dollars. The cost of the attorneys representing the cops and the politicians.....paid for by tax dollars. The cost of any settlement the plaintiffs might receive.......PAID FOR ONCE AGAIN by the long suffering taxpayer.
It NEVER matters how evil, egregious or abusive the misconduct of LEO or politicians is....ANY legal consequences....which are rare....are always paid for
out of the pockets of the taxpayer.
