Alleged Antifa Members Attack Officer, Launch Eggs and Fireworks into Crowds

August 13, 2018  | 

Charlottesville, VA, police are investigating the assault of an officer who was reportedly knocked to the ground, swarmed by a group of masked subjects, and beaten during a demonstration marking the one-year anniversary of the violence in that Virginia city that left one woman dead.

The officer wasn’t hurt, but an investigation is ongoing, according to Fox News.

During a parallel gathering in Washington D.C., masked individuals allegedly affiliated with the ultra-left group Antifa were seen on cell phone video launching eggs and water bottles and shooting fireworks at police officers and journalists covering the march.

"In a tense scene about a half-mile from the White House, police appeared to shove back the advancing Antifa group," Fox News said.

One officer used pepper spray, but officials said no tear gas was used, according to reports.

If there isn't an ordinance against these thugs wearing masks there should be in such a situation.

I sure hope these basement dwellers went to jail via the nearest hospital.

Imminent fear of death or serious injury of an officer or another person is the qualification of the use of deadly force. There should have been at least four of those Antifa thugs on the ground bleeding. What the heck you going to wait until your partner is dead.
