The county’s Democratic Party is furious that the police would dare to interfere with a BLM protest and demand all charges be dropped. A group of Black Lives Matter anarchists literally held a pregnant woman on the way to the hospital as a hostage to their radical demands. The police are the ones in trouble for arresting her. Officers actually dared to criminally charge Tianna Arata and her fellow anarchists for the felony crimes they committed that day, but the Democrats officially demand an apology and complete freedom for all involved.
BLM should be allowed to do as they please
The San Luis Obispo County Democratic Party insists that BLM protesters should be allowed to do whatever they please, without any consequences, as a matter of “social” justice. On July 21, Antifa-linked Black Lives Matter protesters blocked a freeway in San Louis Obispo, California. The 20-year-old agitator leading the Antifa band, Tianna Arata, was arrested and charged with eight charges, at least some of them felonies.
At one point Arata and her rebel BLM forces “detained” a pregnant woman who was “ignorant” for trying to drive to the hospital through their protest. The law books call that “kidnapping,” and it’s a felony. Arata committed several other felonies that day. A 4-year old child was injured. Vehicles were attacked at random with an American flag attached to a pole. Over 300 people were in the mob as it rampaged through the streets.
The official statement released by SLOCDP says how “deeply disturbed” they are by “the San Luis Obispo Police Department’s recommended charges against Black Lives Matter activist Tianna Arata.” You can’t do that, they scream. They insist District Attorney Dan Dow immediately “drop the unwarranted, heavy-handed felony charges.” They also want “the San Luis Obispo City Council to publicly address the incident directly, as well as to implement corrective action to reverse the political weaponization of the city’s police department.” Suddenly, enforcing the laws and protecting citizens and their property has become political repression because it’s directed at BLM.
CS gas declared a weapon of mass destruction
The statement from the Democrats is such gibberish that it’s hard to follow, but the gist of it is that law enforcement is strongly discouraged and the tools of the trade should be banned from use, especially against BLM rioters. For instance, they make standard riot control gear seem like weapons of mass destruction.
“SLOCDP declares that weapons of war have no place in our community, especially military grade chemical weapons such as those used on protesters during a peaceful demonstration on June 1. Because the possession of such weapons is unnecessary and dangerous, and their use contributes to our county becoming known nationally as a place where law enforcement tramples on the 1st amendment, they must be renounced and abandoned.” BLM anarchists find tear gas highly annoying.
The scariest part is that the prosecutor seems ready to cave in to the BLM demands. Her lawyer is waiting to hear from the DA but “the information I have received is that our District Attorney’s Office has yet to make a determination as to whether they will file criminal charges against my client, Tianna Arata.” Forget about the pregnant woman and the injured toddler. “We are hopeful that, ultimately, our District Attorney’s Office will decide that a criminal case against Tianna Arata is not warranted so that this community and this inspiring person, Tianna Arata, can begin to recover from her arrest and its aftermath.” The DA says he’ll have a decision before her court appearance next month.
