Secret’s out! Why cops are standing down in Berkeley and beyond

A large group of Antifa activists descended upon a small number of people the group surmised were supporters of President Trump Sunday and assaulted them viciously while Berkeley, California, police largely stood by. Policing expert Heather Mac Donald told WND and Radio America the passivity from the cops is a result of withering demonization from politicians and the media. The Washington Post headline described the violence as an Antifa “attack” against “peaceful right-wing protesters.” This is not the first time Berkeley police have let the violence play out. Earlier this year, extensive property damage ensued from riots connected with a scheduled University of California speech by Milo Yiannopoulos.
