Conspiracy To Deprive People Of Civil Rights

Ted Cruz: It’s time for the DOJ to investigate Portland’s mayor for letting Antifa run wild.

Related: Hans Bader: Did Portland violate the First Amendment by selectively tolerating violence? “Police have no duty under the Constitution to protect the public at all. But if they do, they can’t selectively withhold protection from people with disfavored views, or selectively permit violence by a group they ideologically sympathize with. A federal appeals court made that clear in Dwares v. City of New York (1993). It allowed New York City police to be sued because they allowed flag burners to be attacked, when they likely would not have permitted such attacks on anyone else. Such viewpoint discrimination was forbidden by the First Amendment. In Portland, police did nothing as Antifa attacked people nearby.”
