Watch this video:
Now read this story about what happened at DeAndre Harris’s trial in Charlottesville:
“DeAndre Harris, a black man who was brutally beaten at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., last year, was acquitted of assault related to an incident that took place moments before he was attacked.
Video from Aug. 12 showed six men surrounding Mr. Harris, 20, in a parking garage and hitting him with a metal pipe and wooden boards. Mr. Harris suffered a head wound and a broken wrist. The video was later widely circulated on social media in efforts to identify the assailants, and at least three men were arrested.
Moments before the attack, Mr. Harris had intervened in a scuffle after a friend tried to yank a Confederate flag away from a marcher, Harold Crews. A complaint by Mr. Crews, a state chairman of the neo-Confederate group League of the South, eventually led the Charlottesville Police Department to issue a warrant for Mr. Harris’s arrest, on a felony charge of malicious wounding. The charge was later amended to misdemeanor assault.
In Charlottesville General District Court on Friday, Judge Robert Downer said it was clear that Mr. Harris did not intend to harm Mr. Crews. …”
Charlottesville isn’t over. It never ended.
There are still good men who are in jail because the Charlottesville Police Department and Virginia State Police deliberately stood down on August 12th, allowed anarchy to erupt in the streets and have selectively prosecuted everyone who defended themselves trying to get out of there.
I can’t stress enough the significance of this: in some places in the United States, we’ve gotten to the point where violent leftwing mobs have been given a blank check by the state to attack citizens exercising their constitutional rights. The police stand down, watch and allow riots to happen. Some cities are allowed to nullify federal court orders. Prosecutors only charge people who don’t share their political beliefs. Judges look the other way when crimes are committed as long as the cause of social justice is served. Organized gangs are allowed to operate as a vigilante force to suppress free speech.
I could say more here. I’m not going to do so. Just reflect on the implications of that.
