Dallas Sheriff’s Dept. Lies About Assault On Peaceful Protestors
Sheriff’s spokesperson completely distorts the truth
November 23, 2013
The spokesperson for the Dallas Co., Texas sheriff completely distorted details on the department’s violent attack against peaceful demonstrators by stating that deputies ordered the crowd to move and disperse when no such order was given prior to yesterday’s assault.
Carmen Castro, spokeswoman for Sheriff Lupe Valdez, told the Dallas Morning News that the deputies violently charged the free speech demonstrators because they were crowding “not only private citizens who were attempting to pay their respects but also equipment that was in place for the event.”
She further stated that the demonstrators was forcibly moved back after they “refused to obey.”
Yet the deputies gave no such orders to the crowd prior to their assault. As the beginning of our own footage shows, they marched to the front of the crowd with the intent to attack and nothing else.
