Field Report: Left Wing Violence, Arizona
Big League Politics ^ | 8/23/2017 | LS

Posted on 08/23/2017 9:34:07 AM PDT by LS

On Monday, August 21, I attended a volunteer orientation in response to a call for help for the Trump rally the following day. It was not clear that this was from the Trump campaign or the Arizona GOP, but at any rate I and dozens and dozens of other people showed up at the Arizona Republican Party HQ. So many showed up, in fact, that they had to do orientations in shifts. Judging by the names on the rolls, they got about three times as many people as they needed.

Instead of being ushers or working inside, however, we were told that this was a voter registration drive and the first real event of the 2020 Trump reelection campaign. We would be working in teams of at least two, or often more. Having done this in the past, I knew things were well in hand—usually, one person per zone is plenty.

Isn’t it pretty suicidal to plan violent (counter) protests in a concealed carry state?

Excellent Report —other cities should look to the Phoenix PD as a template on how these situations should be handled. Unless, of course, they are dem controlled and in that case, violence is welcome to push their agenda.

Even walking directly in front of Pod 1 protest group, we never felt unsafe.

When we left, and came around the back so as to avoid traffic, I noticed a line of police on horses. Imposing.

Shoot them in the balls!

Seems like a darned good template.

Arizona is an OPEN carry state as well as a state wherein you can carry concealed without permission from the state. Is not unusual to see open carry in Walmart and other places in nearby Sierra Vista. We carry every day on the ranch just in case a rattler is in the chicken coop, coyotes or javelina get too close to the dogs or the illegals drop by for food or water (number of illegals way down over past year). Carry is no big deal out here. One of the many reasons why we live on the ranch.

Snipped from the blog. All the positive reports on the Phoenix police are backed up here - first time I have heard of this tactic.

“We couldn’t see the entrance yet, which was close to 1st Street, but we could see the protesters, coagulated in two groups on each side of Washington and 2nd.

This was a brilliant maneuver by the Phoenix Police Department, or whoever gave them their permit. Divided as they were on each side of the street—with Police vans and cars in between on 2nd, their groups looked smaller than they were (about 200 total, meaning they were now in groups of about 100 per side). They couldn’t coordinate, and there was only one small area—at the crossing of Washington and 2nd—where the Trump supporters and the protesters actually even came close to each other.”
