Phoenix SCHOOLS Charlottesville on ONE key thing about Leftists

PHOENIX, AZ - AUGUST 22: A demonstrator throws a canister back toward police after a rally by President Donald Trump at the Phoenix Convention Center on August 22, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Last night, President Trump arrived in Phoenix to hold one of his campaign-style rallies. Like on the campaign, thousands of supporters showed up to listen to Trump’s remarks. Unsurprisingly, so too did hundreds of liberal agitators, who gathered to “protest” the president.

Of course, these days we know that when it comes to liberals, “protest” has become a euphemism for rioting. Which is why the city of Phoenix came prepared, assigning a large police presence to ensure a peaceful gathering.

Unlike Charlottesville, Phoenix police came prepared to act. When the protesters started hurling rocks and bottles, officers knew the situation could quickly get out of hand. Thankfully, they instead took swift action to nip a riot in the bud.

From Down Trend:

In a far more aggressive exhibition of how to practice crowd control to deter ANTIFA thugs, angry loser snowflakes and George Soros operatives, police unleashed volleys of pepper spray and tear gas on the troublemakers outside of a Trump rally in Phoenix.

Authorities were ready for trouble after it was made known that President Trump’s speech would be targeted by leftist insurrectionists and there was no repeat of Charlottesville in the desert on Tuesday night.

Despite temperatures that reportedly reached 107 degrees, the angry mobs still showed up outside of the Phoenix Convention Center with mayhem on their minds.

But police kept order and many of the anarchists were sent home in tears – literally.

According to eye witnesses, the protesters began to agitate the officers:

What had largely been a peaceful rally near the Phoenix Convention Center for President Trump’s speech Tuesday night turned combustible afterward, with police deploying pepper spray and stun grenades to disperse the large crowd.

Phoenix police in a statement said, “People in the crowd have begun throwing rocks and bottles at police. They also dispersed some gas in the area.”

Police said they responded with pepper balls and pepper spray to disperse the crowd.

One eyewitness said he saw water bottles thrown at police while other protesters said they saw no provacation.

As the police cracked down on the mob, video started to stream in on social media:

Amidst the media hysteria over the events in Charlottesville, little coverage was given to the failures of the local police there. Despite having plenty of police on the ground, authorities in Charlottesville let the violence spiral out of control. When they finally did act, the situation had deteriorated beyond their control.

Having learned the lessons of previous cities, authorities in Phoenix were prepared not to repeat such mistakes. Thanks to their swift action, the violence and bloodshed that has followed leftist mobs wherever they go was prevented. Police departments across the country should take note.
