SAN JOSE (KCBS) – A federal judge is giving Donald Trump supporters the green light to pursue their lawsuit against the city of San Jose. The plaintiffs accuse the city for not protecting them during a campaign rally last year.
The Trump supporters in this case claim that San Jose police officers intentionally steered them into an angry mob of protesters, following a Trump campaign rally last June.This is not a failure to protect suit. Police are not obligated to provide police services, and individuals have no claim against governments that either intentionally or negligently fail to protect. The allegation here is intentional puting them in harm's way, which would not surprise in the least for the city of San "Jose's my name and I don't have a green card."
