The disturbing video on social media says it all, as numerous reports began filtering in of marauding gangs of thugs dressed in black violently assaulting Trump supporters, while Berkeley police purposely looked the other way.
It soon became apparent that the police were told from the outset, to “stand down” and allow the masked, black-clad thugs (eerily dressed like ISIS), to beat down the peaceful gathering on Saturday
Reporter Tim Pool who was on the scene tweeted; “As the violence escalated police in Berkeley stood down and retreated from the crowds.”
Adding: “I have never seen so few police at an event like this.”
Another reporter Shane Bauer, covering the event for Mother Jones confronted two police officers sitting in a patrol car virtually doing nothing and asking them; “Hey, how come you guys are hanging back?”
The officer apparently annoyed answered; “That would be a question for the chief of police.”
The other officer standing near the door of his patrol car chimed in: “You want a public statement, right?” “I would refer you to our public information officer.”
I tell a police officer I've been seeing people get beat up all day and they haven't been around. "Okay, and?" he says. pic.twitter.com/OuGEcvvb8R

From the tense conversation, it was obvious that the police were instructed to do nothing and simply allow Trump supporters to be pummeled.
One on scene observer posted on social media: I tell a police officer I’ve been seeing people get beat up all day and they haven’t been around. “Okay, and?” he says.
In another sickening confrontation, a gang of thugs isolate one Trump supporter and beat him mercilessly with fists and feet, and finally clubbing him with a skateboard.
The irony, of course, is that President Trump and his supporters actually support the police.
