We are not slowing down or backing down. This story will not get lost in the short attention span of today's news cycles. Read more about it at REGATED and NBC-Bay Area.

Thousands of United States citizens exercising their lawful right to freedom of assembly, speech, and, ultimately, vote, were harassed and in many cases assaulted outside a peaceful rally for Presumptive Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump.

Mayor Sam Liccardo, instead of condemning this violence, blamed it on Donald Trump and his supporters. Since when have words justified the use of violence? Mayor Liccardo is a former prosecutor who should never justify this despicable behavior. Political beliefs are irrelevant in this regard. No citizen of the Unites States should feel threatened for expressing his or her opinion or attending a lawful political rally.

These were not peaceful protestors. They were rioters and criminals who preyed on the peaceful. That an elected official, sworn to uphold the law, would condone this behavior is a disgrace to any nation that believes in rule of law.

Mayor Sam Liccardo, resign before you do more damage to your city, state, or this great nation.

Edit: Longer video with more horrendous acts of violence.
