Police Cars Smashed, Roads Closed By Swarm of Anti-Trump Hooligans
The anti-Trump movement is becoming even more violent in its protests than we thought possible. You won't believe the things that these rioters did outside of Trump's latest rally that was held in Orange County, California.
Trump spoke before a crowd of 30,000 people in a large amphitheater in Costa Mesa, California. Meanwhile, outside of the stadium angry mobs gathered holding signs and waving Mexican flags.
Those angry protesters did thousands in damage during the night including smashing one police car, slashing the tires of another, and doing damage to five police cars by the end of the night.
The protesters also moved cement barricades and closed off a highway on-ramp that was nearby. Then they threw rocks at cars stuck on the ramp and other cars that passed by the rally.
The crowd was mostly made up of young Hispanics, who hate Trump because he spoke out against the lax border policies that have changed the face of America and made the southern states in the U.S. unsafe.
"I'm protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest," said one young Hispanic protester, age 19.
"This is the anger people have against Trump. It's not because he's white -- it's because of what he's said," said another young Hispanic who was part of the rock-throwing crowd.
Some brave Trump supporters did attend the rally and try and talk down the violent mob. But it appeared that the crowd was too hyped up on violence to engage in any peaceful conversation.
Despite the damages to patrol cars and the obvious malicious intent of the gathering, police only ended up arresting barely over a dozen people during the night and arrested them under the "suspicion of unlawful assembly" charge.
If these people were only suspected of unlawful assembly, I'd hate to see what happens when these radical anti-Trump protesters actually assemble violently and unlawfully.
