Here’s my Huff Po blog, “Fear and Lynching in The California”
It looks at selective enforcement and prosecution around the Murrieta immigration protests. It’s no secret that a big white stain has marked the small So Cal town after some decidedly nasty anti immigration flag wielding protesters showed the fearful face of white hate. The Riverside County DA took the bait and filed lynching charges on pro immigration protesters and the blow back is in play with an online petition to drop the charges and call in campaign has undoubtedly jammed the DA’s office.
On of the arrestees told me that they heard the arresting offices talking about changing their clothes and joining the anti immigration protesters after their shift. Those comments and the lynching charges imply that the justice system in Riverside County is compromised.
