Last night a supporter of President Trump was attacked by Antifa thugs outside of a political rally in Kentucky while police stood by and did not detain or arrest those responsible for the attack..
Conservative reporter Andy Ngo has the story:
“Kaitlin Bennett (in the pink wig on the right) was attacked by an anti-Trump protester near Trump’s rally in Lexington, Ky. The man wrestled microphone from her and threw it. She says police did not detain or arrest him. #antifa”

Reaction to the assault and lack of arrests was swift:
DARN the end of video with man in blue jacket and hood. He is attacked by "female" with glasses and then 2 thin women are "skirmishers" to distract and say "you're ok." THESE 3 "females" I thought are in Spokane/Portland videos of antifa. Check film to identify them.

What do you think about the lack of police response here?
The police obviously have their hands tied to do their job by government bureaucrats! Where have we seen this before?

If the "thin blue line" does not hold the line, because politicians will not let them, chaos and violence will erupt. The people have to have faith that rule of law will apply, or they will begin to apply their own law and that will be tragic for all of us, as we lose control.

What a hero — engages in strongarm robbery against a woman too small to fight back and when a cop big enough to take him on show up he puts hands up as if to appeal for calm, like the cop is being unreasonable. Cuff him on the spot officer.
