Trump supporters pepper-sprayed protesters
Photographer Jimi Giannatti captured Trump’s supporters armed with pepper spray for protesters objecting to his race-baiting.
…these photos show that both sides are resorting to increasingly brazen acts of violence. Giannatti described the scene to me over email:
…a huge contingent of Trump supporters (mostly younger males) made their way unencumbered by the SDPD over across the train tracks and towards downtown and began harassing the anti-Trumpers who had been there peacefully all day – and I mean aggressively challenging them to fights, cursing, etc. All with the cops standing mere feet away from them with their backs turned.
In my photo you see the aftermath to where some extremely passionate hispanic anti-Trumpers were defending their choice to protest Trump to the hating pro-Trumpers and were met by a sneak attack, completely acting in concert, spraying of pepper spray by the two guys in the pic. The pepper spray went everywhere – you cans see it’s direction bending in the shot by the strong winds that day – Several people, including myself, experienced an instant burning in our lungs an extreme burning to our eyes.
