'Mob Rule': Texas Man Faces Assault Charge For Confronting BLM Mob Blocking Traffic In Plano

Police charge man for allegedly slapping a woman's hand despite video indicating he never made contact and "victim" admitting she was "not injured" and "it did not hurt."

A Texas man filmed confronting a Black Lives Matter mob illegally blocking an intersection in Plano is being criminally charged with "assault by contact" for allegedly slapping a woman's hand even though video of the "slap" indicates he completely whiffed and the "victim" admitted she was "not hurt."

On Monday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton condemned the May 2 incident as an example of "mob rule" and slammed Plano's police chief Ed Drain for not charging any of the "rioters."

Paxton said too many police officers are "held back by politically motivated leaders, crippled by the woke agitators, now aiders and abettors to liberal lunacy."

"I will never allow our beautiful Texas cities and neighborhoods to become Portland or Seattle or San Francisco because of the unchecked left," Paxton said.
Full statement:

Dallas News reported that the assault charge is a Class C misdemeanor "punishable by a fine of up to $500."

Plano PD released a statement on Facebook which made no mention of the fact blocking traffic is illegal and instead criticized people on "social media" for not reporting on the incident in the manner they wanted.

Texas has been a police state for at least 30 years. The idea that it's a bastion of liberty is as laughable as Trump supporting the Second amendment.

Chief Drain must be relieved, charged and tried.

In other words, when confronted by a Liberal Democrat Anti Fa or BLM who pulls a gun on you, place a .45 diameter hole in their forehead. Repeat as necessary.
