Last weekend, a group of “anarchists” attacked a pro-Trump rally at the Minnesota State Capitol. Thugs wearing helmets and masks sucker-punched and kicked unsuspecting peaceful demonstrators, and in one case sprayed mace into a crowd of people.
It was not a spontaneous event; they were quite obviously organized, equipped, and had planned for the event.
They sprayed what was described as “Bear Mace” into a crowd of unsuspecting people – which can easily be a lethal weapon for people with respiratory conditions. There were six arrests.
The entire fracas was caught on film, in front of dozens of witnesses. There is not problem showing the violence, brutality and intent of the event.
No matter. They are aligned with the left against the right. And in Saint Paul, that’s license to block streets, clog freeways…
…and now, to physically attack people with potentially lethal force. Ramsey County has declined to charge the arrested protesters – four boys and two girls – with anything.
Monday, the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office said there were insufficient facts to prove felony-level riot. The attorney’s office said State Patrol has presented the case to the St. Paul City Attorney’s Office for consideration of misdemeanor charges.
That is bullshit, stacked high and deep.
If it were a bunch of rednecks from Isanti County who’d maced the “Womens’ March” a couple weeks ago, they’d still be in jail.
Look at the boys and girls who were arrested. Check out the names: Anton. Isabell. Linwood. Those are upper-middle-class white kid names. Breck School names. Names that drive Subarus until they get a Volvo. Names like the children of John Choi’s law school classmates and Chris Coleman’s Crocus Hill and Kenwood cronies have.
It’s the special, deluxe, “for progressives only” justice, part of the “progressives only” school, university, public sector union and non-profit parallel universe of power and privilege that the Big Left in Minnesota gets.
UPDATE: I’ve seen reports that Linwood Kaine is the son of Hillary Clinton’s VP candidate.
Well, I’m gonna guess there were some lawyers involved, huh?
