    After Bay Area violence, California debates classifying 'antifa' as a street gang

    ANTIFA is finally being seen as the rioters they are. It is time for the democrats to reject Soros and his violent gangs

    Not long after dozens of black-hooded protesters were filmed pummeling people on his city’s streets, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin made clear his disgust for the self-stylized vigilantes.

    “Antifa,” he said, is no different than a street gang, and police should start treating protesters in the anti-fascist movement accordingly.



    Later that day, legislators in Sacramento advanced resolutions that would treat violent acts committed by antifa movement’s enemies — white nationalists and neo-Nazis — as terrorist acts under state law.

    As forces on the extremes of the nation’s ever-widening political divide continue to battle with fists and weapons on the streets of California, law enforcement officials and politicians have started debating whether these extremist groups should be classified as street gangs.

    Such a designation could give law enforcement new tools to combat the groups. Numerous laws on the books give authorities the power to restrict the movements of gang members and enhance criminal charges against them.

    But such a move raises legal issues because unlike with traditional street gangs, the underlying motive of these extremist groups is political expression rather than criminal enterprise.

    Maybe they are really those two million bikers you posted who were coming to Trump's inauguration.
