Harmeet K. Dhillon Appears on ‘FOX and Friends’ To Discuss Andy Ngo Case
According to Dhillon:
The arrests so far have been, I think, of a couple of people who actually attacked the police, the multiple people who attacked Andy as well as two other gentlemen who have been seen on video of yet on Saturday still have not been apprehended. That’s very disturbing. Law enforcement is aware of the names of those people, at least some of them.
Well, the police chief is responsible for actually designing the plan and providing where the police are, but the mayor and the city leadership ultimately give the instructions to the authorities as to where they are supposed to go. Now, the situation on the ground in Portland and policing is so bad that the sheriffs of the adjoining counties have refused to send mutual aid to Portland because they don’t want their own officers to be assaulted. Portland has consistently understaffed these types of incidents. There have been many incidents, this is not the first incident. They knew – they were aware that this was going to happen and they did nothing to prevent it.
Well, look, it would be early for me to say that but his words are empty platitudes and the Twitter ratio on that tweet represents the fact that nobody is buying it. And, you know, even liberal First Amendment lawyers are very upset about this. Journalists should not be attacked despite of their political persuasion. Portland’s Antifa runs wild. There are other people who have are injured, who are not pictured in videos for their privacy. They are concerned that Antifa will target them. This cannot go on in America. I do intend to hold the city government and potentially the mayor liable to the fullest extent of the law. There are some legal precedents that help me. It’s uphill battle but we are putting together a legal fund to sue everybody responsible for these attacks.
I’m going to sue everybody who the facts and the law support being sued, and I mean everybody.
There are cases involving the discriminatory protection of people by the police authorities in federal court. I myself have sued the city of San Jose for violating the rights of Trump supporters in 2016. That case was allowed to proceed where the police created a dangerous condition – allegedly created a dangerous condition. One would argue that here as Andy told viewers of Fox last night on Tucker’s show that you showed, the police actually asked him to cross into the mob to get to an ambulance to get to safety. They did not provide the type of medic support that was required either. They put him in further danger and other people as well. And they weren’t — you know, it was designed so poorly that people were assaulted and that is a violation of the law.
Thank you very much. I will let him know.
