Police serving Berkeley University in California were captured on video sitting idly by as President Donald Trump supporters were beated and harraunged by leftists who hate the administration.
As the violence escalated police in Berkeley stood down and retreated from the crowds. I have never seen so few police at an event like this

As one journalist who witnessed the scene tweeted: “As the violence escalated, police in Berkeley stood down and retreated from the crowds. I have never seen so few police at an event like this.”
Another tweeted about the bloody violence, and failure of police to act.

The events unfolded on Saturday, with many eye-witnesses saying police didn’t just casually stand by and do nothing — they actively and intentionally left the scene.
The American Mirror reports:
“‘As the violence escalated police in Berkeley stood down and retreated from the crowds,’ reporter Tim Pool tweeted. ‘I have never seen so few police at an event like this.’
“One observer claimed police “ran away,” despite several Trump rally attendees being attacked.
“Mother Jones reporter Shane Bauer saw two officers at a patrol car, not engaged in protecting citizens from violence.
“‘Hey, how come you guys are hanging back?” he asked an officer standing in an open door of the car and another sat in the back seat.
“‘That would be a question for the chief of police,’ an officer sitting in the driver’s seat responded.
“‘You want a public statement, right?’ the standing officer asked the reporter.
“‘I would refer you to our public information officer.’
“‘Do they told you to hang back?’ Bauer said.
“‘As I said, I refer you to our public information officer,’ the cop responded.
“‘I’ve been watching all day people get beat up pretty bad and I haven’t seen you guys around much,’ Bauer said.
“‘Okay, and?’ the officer responded.
“Numerous videos show Trump supporters being beaten in the streets as police failed to keep the two sides apart.
“At one point, several black-clad agitators isolated a lone Trump supporter and pummeled him with fists and feet.
“Someone jumped in and clubbed him with a skateboard.”
