Great strategy, Chief

Protesters from the poles of the U.S. political spectrum converged on another American city Sunday as violence erupted when left-wing protesters surrounded and attacked at least five right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley.

The group of more than 100 hooded protesters, with shields emblazoned with the words “no hate” and waving a flag identifying themselves as anarchists, busted through police lines, avoiding security checks by officers to take away possible weapons.

And then there’s my favorite WTF? part of the whole article:

Berkeley police chief Andrew Greenwood defended how police handled the protest, saying they made a strategic decision to let the anarchists enter to avoid more violence.

Greenwood said to The Associated Press: “the potential use of force became very problematic” given the thousands of peaceful protesters in the park. Once anarchists arrived, it was clear there would not be dueling protests between left and right so he ordered his officers out of the park and allowed the anarchists to march in.



Yeah, because we all know by antifa’s previous appearances in Berkeley that they’re a non-violent group that wouldn’t hurt a fly.

    Another chief deciding to give cover to antifa thugs.

    Tear gas and water cannons would be my response.

    They are trying to provoke and antagonize the right into an all out bloodbath. This is what they want.
    The TPTB cocksuckers want to use an ugly sound byte on the Shit for News to further tighten the screws on the public.
    It appears all but obvious that the game is rigged.
    It’s my ball, and I’m going home !
    Fuck them !!! They already lost !
    The truth hurts…… That is why all this is taking place now and not five years ago.

    as bad as (or worse) than Noriega’s “dignity battalions” that practically murdered ‘ol Pineapple Face’s political opposition in the street of Panama City in ’89 prompting the U.S. invasion. Same kind of stupidity but far weaker excuses for it.

  5. Jesse in DC says:

    Yeah, but ALL those fine officers went home safe at the end of the day. Why do we pay those assholes again?

    • crazyeighter says:

      Are they taking the “To Serve and Protect” stickers off their patrol cars this morning?

    If the police keep not doing their jobs, Others will for them. Just saying

  7. Steve says:

    Just like Charlottesville, Antifa knew that the gov’t & LE had their backs, and wouldn’t interfere. And just like Charlottesville, the gov’t deliberately caused a riot, and then tried to escape responsibility for the riot that they caused.

    (Tin foil hat time – Are Antifa & the Gov’t officials coordinating their strategy? We know from the leaked Democrat emails that the Democrat politicians & media coordinate their strategy. I remember quotes from the Inauguration protesters saying they were told they wouldn’t be arrested. So it’s not too far a stretch to assume that the strategy coordination goes further.)

    This would be the time that Trump needs to step in and direct the DOJ to investigate, assuming the DOJ isn’t so infiltrated by Obama appointees that nothing would be done.

    The fix is in.

  9. Keith Koepke says:

    Berkeley police chief Andrew Greenwood needs a visit from the DOJ. I personally would sue him.

  10. Smitty says:

    The police chief has decided to instigate a mass casualty event. If this activity continues a mass shooting will occur. This reminds me of gladiator days where the California prison system organized fights between inmates for sport. The war has begun.

  11. Oscar2Marine says:

    Tell that shit to the people you didn’t protect !

  12. nonncom says:

    ANTIFA….Another Nitwit Tragically Injured by a FireArm ….just kidding….like the pole-ice chief, I would NEVER encourage violence….

  13. bogsidebunny says:

    These Antifa shitheads know there’ll be no affective opposition because the folks capable of taking up arms to neutralize the Commie bastards mostly have steady jobs, homes with mortgages, families with young children and know all that will be sacrificed if they act. You can bet the cops will pounce on them pronto.

  14. mark says:

    I swear everything on the left coast is mentally broken.

    Dumbest shit seen to date.

    Due to the spying on the subjects of our once great nation I won’t put here what I think should be done but I think most of you can guess.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
