A violent protest took place in downtown Sacramento Saturday night. The Sacramento Bee did not report on the violence.
Sacramento Police Department sent out an email explaining what happened:
“This protest resulted in damage to windows, spray paint on property, and debris left in roadways. One TV news crew was also assaulted and forced to leave the area. The Sacramento Police Department police helicopter and motorcycle officers were targets of lasers being pointed at them.
At approximately 9 p.m., officers observed a separate group of approximately 150 people who had formed inside of Cesar Chavez Park. This group was wearing all black clothing, protective gear that included body armor, shields, and helmets. Officers also observed various weapons that included metal pipes and rocks. The group began marching throughout the downtown area. As the group marched there were reports of vandalism that included broken windows, damage to trees, spray-painting, and objects being moved into the roadway to create hazards. The group also spray-painted security cameras as they marched.
Officers observed one female suspect who was spray-painting City Hall. This female was arrested by officers later in the night. The female was found to be in possession of spray paint, body armor and rocks.
The investigation into this incident is still active. Based on the preliminary investigation, detectives know that protestors attending this march were told to be prepared to use a variety of tactics that could be unlawful.”
Antifa thugs pointed lasers at the Police helicopter and motorcycle officers. Three federal officers in Portland may be permanently blinded from lasers pointed at them by protesters.
Violent protesters have been terrorizing Portland for nearly 60 days.
KCRA cameraman Mason Silva was assaulted by the protesters and punched in the face. He posted about his assault on Facebook:
“There was a protest, presumably lead by Antifa. I was told that I was not welcomed and not to shoot video. These were folks I do not recognize. No one familiar from the local BLM movement we’ve been following. Not from Sacramento. My home.”
“I am a news photographer. And a damn proud one. My reporter Stephanie & I have gone through a lot these past five months and we work hard. You can troll us all you want on social media, share the BS that’s floating around, but when it comes down to it, your local news are the ones I hope you trust. We are your community. We are with you. So don’t attack us.”
Mayor Steinberg’s Twitter feed offers no expression of horror over the assault, or even get-well-wishes for the camera crew.
By signaling his support for the violent Antifa thugs, Mayor Steinberg is opening the doors to the city and inviting in more violence.
These Antifa thug terrorists were wearing body armor and carrying weapons.
In June, The Globe reported:
“Following violence, anarchy, mass property damage, theft, robbery and vandalism during ongoing Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots, Sacramento residents have been under an 8:oo p.m. to 5:00 a.m. curfew since Monday. The rioters have ignored it.”
Steinberg Tweeted in June, “I then got on one knee and said a prayer for George Floyd, our community, and our country. #BlackLivesMatter,” including the three colors of Black Power fist emojis.
Mayor Steinberg is too busy these days worrying about viewing Sacramento spending “through an equity lens,” and ongoing discussions about police brutality.
“Every budget decision we make, large and small, should be viewed through an equity lens. So I’m happy to say the city has added two new STEAM summer camps in neighborhoods that are often overlooked, and which will be free for low-income kids,” Steinberg posted on Twitter.

The Globe is concerned that the Antifa thugs will not stop with destroying Sacramento businesses, as they have already threatened residential neighborhoods. Steinberg’s home just South of downtown, was already the subject of a protest and a “die-in” by Antifa and BLM recently.
What will Mayor Steinberg’s “equity lens” be focused on when Antifa isn’t satisfied with his virtue signaling and starts terrorizing nearby city neighborhoods?
And this is why BLM and Antifa know they can terrorize the City of Sacramento.
