Police clashed with an unlawful mob outside the Dream City church in Phoenix, Arizona, where President Donald Trump addressed a crowd of around 3,000 “Students for Trump” on Tuesday. After protesters threw objects, the officers karmically blasted back a dose of “flash bangs, pepper balls and a burst of pepper spray.”
The police were attacked first
Authorities were forced to officially declare the “several hundred” gathered radicals “an unlawful assembly.” Two anarchists “swung at two officers in separate incidents.” Others in the crowd threw objects. No arrests were made but the police threw back a few flash bangs and and pepper balls to get their attention, then moved them back with a small dose of spicy Mexican chili in the form of air freshener.
According to news reports, there were two separate groups of demonstrators which melted together in the 107 degree heat and “demonstrated peacefully for hours.” Bethne Stewart of Phoenix insists, “we’ve been peaceful all day. We’ve been loud, of course, that’s our right.” She’s mad because she was hit with the pepper spray and her eyes were still stinging. “the police have been dogging us, harassing us,” she complains.
Officers and plainclothes detectives patiently stood watch until President Trump’s motorcade prepared to depart. “Tensions grew,” Mohave Daily News reports, “as officers in riot gear arrived to stand between demonstrators and the path of Trump’s motorcade.” That was a no-no, insists Phoenix Police Sergeant Ann Justus. Protesters crossed the tape lines out of their “free speech zone.”
Radicals face to face with the cops
A line of protesting radicals squared off with the line of riot gear clad police as an officer used a bull horn to order the crowd of savages back. One anarchist assaulted an officer by “pushing on an officer’s shield with his arm.” In response, the cop grabbed him around the neck.
That’s about when the ordinance started flying. Sgt. Justice confirms, “Authorities used flash bangs, pepper balls” and just “a burst of pepper spray,” for seasoning. The truly peaceful demonstrators took the hint and left. Organizers urged the remaining radicals to disburse and “clean up their trash” as they leave.
Inside the venue, the only ones wearing face coverings were Arizona’s elected officials. Arizona’s governor, Double Crossing Doug Ducey, had a flag on his. The outgoing RINO senator appointed by Ducey, Martha McSally, wore her mask to come out and wave goodbye, joined by political zeros Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko.
