Civil rights case moves ahead for Trump supporters who were 'assaulted, abused, chased, hunted, and terrorized'

A judge has refused to toss out a federal lawsuit against the city of San Jose, California, in which the city police are accused of allowing an angry mob of left-wing agitators and violent protesters to target peaceful pro-Trump ralliers.

Several people were injured during the June 2 rally. A picture of a pro-Trump woman being pelted by eggs during the incident went viral last spring.

“Citizens ranging from their teens to their 70s were assaulted, abused, chased, hunted, and terrorized in a situation for which the city is responsible.”

The city was sued by attorney Harmeet Dhillon, in a pro bono case, representing some of the victims. Dhillon, the national committeewoman of the California Republican Party and a contender to lead the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, also attended the rally.

“Citizens ranging from their teens to their 70s were assaulted, abused, chased, hunted, and terrorized in a situation for which the city is responsible, and must now answer,” Dhillon told LifeZette. “This lawsuit seeks to vindicate the principle that every American — regardless of his or her political beliefs — is entitled to equal protection of the laws, and to the rights of free speech and free assembly, particularly in the support of their candidate of choice.”

The unfortunate series of events happened just weeks after Republican businessman Donald Trump had sewn up the GOP presidential nomination in May 2016. The Trump supporters were leaving the San Jose rally, exiting the convention center on June 2.

Police had lined up and guided the attendees along various pathways outside.

But as the pro-Trump attendees turned one final corner, they were led straight into what was described as an anti-Trump riot.

Some people took shelter in nearby buildings. But it was too late, according to people at the event.

"It felt like we were the lamb being led to the slaughterhouse," said Juan Hernandez, a Trump supporter who suffered a broken nose, speaking to The Mercury News. "I went down into a fetal position and the punches were coming in at every angle. The officers weren't doing anything as the attacks were happening. This should not happen anywhere — no matter who you support, Democrat or Republican — this should not happen."

In July, the first federal civil rights complaint was filed. Dhillon's law firm has been battling motions from the city to dismiss the case since then. Some state civil rights claims were dismissed, but the lion's share of the complaint — the federal civil rights claim — remains in the case, as does the claim for negligence against the city. A judge refused to throw those claims out in a decision Wednesday.

Dhillon, a candidate to lead the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, is a Sikh-American who was born in India. Her experiences witnessing hate crimes against Sikhs led her to believe that if civil rights laws are on the books, conservatives and Republicans must use them in court if they encounter violence and suppression of their constitutional rights.

"San Jose has had two opportunities to dismiss this case, and now must defend the indefensible: its 250-plus police officers' utter inaction in the face of a violent mob riot they forced Trump supporters to walk through," Dhillon told LifeZette Friday. "San Jose violated these constitutional rights and the public trust, and we hope to make sure, through this civil rights case, that this travesty is never repeated."

Dhillon's law firm has amassed huge bills in suing the city of San Jose, and the plaintiffs have set up a GoFundMe page to keep the case going.

The San Jose city attorney blames President Trump for lingering after the rally and meeting with VIPs.

"Unfortunately, Mr. Trump hung around after the event to meet with the VIPs," said Rick Doyle, San Jose city attorney, speaking to The Mercury News. "And the Secret Service wouldn't allow anyone in that area. I think we'll sort that out in deposition."

Obviously, that was post-riot. Maybe she was happy to be safe from rioters and then get her own 15 minutes of fame, even if she did have some egg on her carefully-kept hairdo. At least her makeup held up. And she has made her mark as a Trumpette. Why shouldn't she smile?

Every prosecutor is ambitious to advance with strict and swift enforcement of the laws. Should we hold it against her just because she's from India and not white?

The Sikhs are an interesting group in India. They do make good immigrants here. Much better than Central/South Americans or people from the Mideast, for instance.

BTW, her full name is undoubtedly Harmeet Kaur Dhillon.

Male Sikhs have "Singh" (Lion), and female Sikhs have "Kaur" (princess) as their middle or last name. Sikhs who have undergone the khanḍe-k+-pahul (the Sikh initiation ceremony) may also be recognised by the five Ks: Kesh, uncut hair which is kept covered, usually by a turban; kara, an iron or steel bracelet; a kirpan, a sword tucked into a gatra strap or a kamal kasar belt; kachera, a cotton undergarment; and kanga, a small wooden comb. Initiated male and female Sikhs must cover their hair with a turban.
The Sikh follow the teaching of 10 Gurus, dating from the 15th century.They carry those little daggers because other religions in India were pretty unkind to them historically. You may be aware that Nikki Haley, former SC governor and current U.N. ambassador, was born and raised Sikh but became Christian after she was married. She still attends services of both religions. I'm not sure her Sikh heritage should matter to us either.

Hondo is all about making stuff up because he is a liar.

He was pimped out by Gay Johnson. But hondo didn't want to be pimped out. He just wanted his Johnson.

My goodness, that's quite a set of phrasing you've lathered up there.

Let's try this out: I bet if Deckard hondo cut you some slack and you did the same, and gave some non absolute answers like this that you two would understand each other better and maybe even respect each other some day.

I can’t find the original Paul Harvey story, it would have been a great one….so, I will go with this version:

A Bad Boy

Lou Costello was part of the comical team “Abbott and Costello” years ago in the 1950s. They are best known for their baseball comic skit “Who’s on first” But Lou, wanted to be boxer in his early days but his parents did not want to pursue it. He was caught fighting at school and his teacher made him write on the Chalk board, “I am a Bad boy” over 100 times.

Well, Lou pursed the boxing fight behind his parent's back and he won many fights. He used another name to hide his identity so that his parents would not find out. Until a big fight came to town for Lou and Lou’s uncle invited his Dad to see the fight. Lou’s Dad did not recognize the name and did not care about the fight but he went anyway. To his surprise it was his son and Lou won the fight. Later Lou would met with his parents and they showed their great disapproval. Lou gave up boxing and pursued another in acting and comedy. Where he made a great career. But one of Lou’s favorite lines in many skits would the line he learned from a child, “I am a bad boy”

That article was poorly written and very short on details. IMO, it reads like an advertisement from Laura Ingraham (Ingraham Media), for Harmeet Dhillon the national committeewoman of the California Republican Party.

This one supplies some important facts, like 20 plaintiffs and more....


San Jose: Judge won’t throw out Trump supporters’ negligence suit

SAN JOSE — A federal judge Wednesday denied San Jose’s request to dismiss a lawsuit brought on behalf of Donald Trump supporters who claim city officers steered them into an angry mob of protesters who attacked and injured them as they left a June campaign rally downtown.

“We look forward to pursuing discovery in this case — getting to the bottom of why this situation happened, holding the city liable for what happened to these individuals and ensuring this type of tragedy doesn’t happen again,” said San Francisco attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon, who is representing 20 plaintiffs.

The lawsuit, filed in July 2016, claimed San Jose officials allowed Trump supporters to be attacked by directing them to walk through a “violent mob” of protesters as they left a downtown Trump rally on June 2. It alleged negligence and civil rights violations.

Dhillon’s clients have alleged police officers, who wore full riot gear, looked on while Trump supporters were brutally attacked.

“It felt like we were the lamb being led to the slaughterhouse,” said Juan Hernandez, a Trump supporter and Log Cabin Republican who suffered a broken nose. “I went down into a fetal position and the punches were coming in at every angle. The officers weren’t doing anything as the attacks were happening. This should not happen anywhere — no matter who you support, Democrat or Republican — this should not happen.”

The lawsuit names 17 defendants, including individual protesters and police officers.

The suit initially named Mayor Sam Liccardo and Police Chief Eddie Garcia as defendants. But U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh’s order Wednesday dismissed claims against Garcia, and claims against Liccardo were dropped in November.

The judge found that while Garcia was involved in planning for the political rally, he wasn’t on the ground when the riots happened. Garcia had no comment Wednesday.

Koh, however, allowed the case to continue against the city and a handful of individual police officers who were overseeing the rally. The city tried to claim the police officers are immune from litigation — but Koh denied that request.

San Jose City Attorney Rick Doyle said the city will ultimately prevail, pointing to its success in getting claims against Liccardo and Garcia dismissed. He said San Jose will continue to fight allegations against the city and individual officers.

“The officers didn’t do anything wrong and were trying to maintain some kind of crowd control in a chaotic situation,” Doyle said Wednesday. “At the end of the day, I’m confident we’ll have this case go away.”

Doyle said there “probably” was a plan to direct Trump supporters to exit away from protesters but it was squashed after the Republican billionaire decided to stay and chat with attendees.

“Unfortunately, Mr. Trump hung around after the event to meet with the VIPs,” Doyle said. “And the Secret Service wouldn’t allow anyone in that area. I think we’ll sort that out in deposition.”

Sounds like they've been caught redhanded and will thus resort to the old reliable the-police-have-no-legal-obligation-to-protect-any-person-or-thing-whatsoever.

They've wiggled out of a lot using that as their defense in court. The judges (literally) allow them to get away with murder that way.
