Documented an unconscionable failure to act by the San Jose Police Department in protecting peaceful attendees at a Trump rally from violent protestors.
Milwaukee joined those dishonored ranks last week:

A week ago in Minneapolis, Republican donors attending a Trump fundraiser were assaulted, robbed and spat upon by a violent leftist mob as they were leaving the event. Attendees say that even though there was a strong law enforcement presence at the convention center downtown where the fundraiser was held, they were not afforded any police protection when coming to and leaving the event — and even more incredibly, there were no arrests.
Both cities, it should be noted, are currently dominated by the Jackass Party. In San Jose, no disciplinary action has been undertaken against the on-scene commander nor the Chief of Police. There were, however, arrests after the fact based on citizen complaints and cell phone video.
Many people who attended the event told Fox 9 that police seemed to back down from intervening, but the Minneapolis Police Department insists there was no stand-down order.
Twin Cities News Talk TCNT morning hosts Andrew Lee and MN state Senator David Osmek took calls on Monday from attendees who also said that the police seemed to be holding back. One male attendee claimed he was told by more than one officer that law enforcement had been ordered to “stand down” — and that the order had “come from the top.”
This stinks on ice. The On-Scene commander should be immediately suspended pending investigation. If the On-Scene commander is not suspsended and investigated, the Chief of Police should be dismissed for cause.
If this is indeed a pattern, the tell tale will be a lack of action against the on-scene commander and the Chief of Police.
