VIDEO: 20 Arrested in California After Anti-Trump Protest Turns Violent

Twenty people were arrested outside a Donald Trump rally in Costa Mesa, CA, Thursday night as a protest turned violent and property was damaged, including police vehicles.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department said there were nearly 200 officers and deputies outside the Orange County Fairgrounds, as protesters mixed with Trump supporters leaving a rally held by the GOP candidate.

The protesters, many waving Mexican flags, were met with police in riot gear and others mounted on horseback, ABC 7 reports. No major injuries were reported.

Why don't these protesters just get off his a**? I'll never understand why people hate him so much. These protesters kept on being idiots even after Trump left. It seemed that a lot of these idiot protesters were protesting the police as well. Fools. Well, stay safe out there SFPD brothers.

The Left find it OK and "freedom of Speech" when they agree with the person speaking or the opinion being made but "hate speech" and not deserving of being heard if they do not. The Left has already infected our College campuses with this "hate speech" b.s. Who is it anyway who declares something "hate speech"? You can be sure that if the Right made choices in what can and can not be said then we would be called Nazi or racist etc etc. All Americans have the right to protest peacefully and lawfully. No one has the right (EVER) to use violence to stop others from exercising their constitutional rights or free speech or assembly. These tactics should not be tolerated and have been used in the past by Communists, racists, Nazis and all manner of thugs. Now are being used by Liberal "thugs" trying to shut down any opposing opinion. The Left will blame the "victim" (Trump/ Cruz etc) for the violence on Trump.This will empower Trump and gain him additonal support so please Left keep it up.

Oh the Mexican flags are a great touch, really? You Left Libs are so very stupid in the tactics that you use. Im sure that will gather support to vote for the Left Lib candidates. Here is a flash for you, if you are not an American, you have no voice in this and can not vote. Well at least not legally, but then again many of you don't have a problem with be "illegal" anyway. Another note, The USA has now owned the lands "taken away from Mexico" now for almost the same number of years that Spain/Mexico held them after taking them from the Natives. So what gives Mexico the right to have these lands returned? The USA beat you in a war, held your capital and allowed you to have back what is today Mexico. We could own ALL of Mexico now if we had chosen to do so. So grow up and get a life.

The selfies with the Mexican flag and visuals of scum bags jumping on a police
car probably added a couple million votes for Trump.

GiC, there's probably a lot more to the "christian band" story than the media wants you to think. The media is biased, extremely so. I don't believe the Police thought they'd take the money just for fun. The fact that no drugs were found doesn't mean there wasn't anything criminal going on. The MEDIA would have you believe that some greedy Police Officers took money that they knew was meant to save humanity, but just didn't care. Was that the true version of events? "When you're not white , you're f--ked". What are you, a "black thugs lives matter" member?

Sheriffs Explorer Sgt. @ 4/30/2016 8:33 PM

Another intriguing fact about the "christian rock band" is the amount of cash the guy had on him. I have never heard of a rep of a music band who physically carried their entire proceeds in a car. That is stupid, no sensible businessman carries all his money on his person. That's why they have bank accounts. Even being from Thailand, the group would have a bank account. Sounds like something funny going on . . .
