These so-called “activists” were very lucky. Normal mobs that approach law enforcement in an aggressive manner, especially during a traffic stop, usually get shot with real bullets.

The real injustice here, and what makes me angry about this situation, is why only two people other than the border jumpers were arrested? It seems as if many more than that engaged in obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct at the very least. The fact that these “activists” got a pass reinforce that there seems to be more than one set of rules in this town. I can tell you that, in the past, I have been arrested and taken to jail for MUCH less than what these “activists” got away with.
