I'd have busted him right in his soup coolers. The initial cop there should have to answer for his non-action in this situation. Unless the guy ranting is the "permit police", he had absolutely no business being there and should have been removed from the area.
LOS ANGELES - Rodolfo Rodriguez was attacked by several people after reportedly bumping into a little girl on his daily walk in South Los Angeles. Detectives do not believe an attack on a 91-year-old man on the Fourth of July is a hate related incident, authorities said.
On Tuesday night, Century Station detectives arrested Laquisha Jones, who is suspected of being involved in the assault, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Jones, 30, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Rodriguez had gone out for a walk in Willowbrook about 7 p.m. on July 4 when he was assaulted, according to a GoFundMe campaign set up by his family. Rodriguez has a broken cheekbone and bruises on his face.
His family said a woman confronted Rodriguez after he reportedly bumped into a little girl who was with her. Rodriguez was then struck from behind, and "as he fell on the ground, he blacked out," Sheriff's Det. Matt Luna said.
Misbel Borjas, who lives near Rodriguez, was passing by in a car when she saw him walking and trying to pass a woman and a girl. Then, Borjas said, she saw the woman push Rodriguez and start to hit him with a block of cement. "She was yelling at him, 'Go back to your country,' or 'Go back to Mexico,'" Borjas recalled. "It was racist."
But authorities said that through their investigation, "detectives have discovered that this is not a hate-related incident."
U.S.Officer Seen Standing by in Video While Woman Berated Over Puerto Rico Flag Shirt Resigns

A police officer seen in a video “doing nothing,” while a woman was being harassed by a drunk man for wearing a Puerto Rico flag shirt, has resigned.
The Forest Preserves of Cook County confirmed that Officer Patrick Connor no longer works for the department following an incident filmed on June 14, which went viral nearly a month later.
The Facebook Live video, filmed by Mia Irizarry, shows her being continually abused by a man later identified as 62-year-old Timothy G. Trybus at a picnic area in Cook County, Illinois.
During the clip, which went on to be viewed nearly two million times, Trybus yells at Irizarry that she “should not be wearing that in the United States of America” in reference to her Puerto Rican flag shirt, as well as repeatedly asking if she is an American citizen.
During the encounter, Irizarry asks Officer Connor to intervene as she feels “highly uncomfortable” as the 62-year-old continues to intimidate her.
“That officer did absolutely nothing, he did zero,” Irizarry said during the video. “I told him I felt uncomfortable multiple times and he didn’t do anything.
“The craziest thing is there’s all these cops here and I still don’t feel safe,” she later adds.

A second officer eventually arrives to speak to Trybus. "You don't come here harassing people," she says. "People have just as much right to be here as you do, and when you're drunk you don't belong here."
The Forest Preserves confirmed they launched an investigation into the response of the officer, with Connor assigned to desk duty pending the outcome.
They have now confirmed that Cook has resigned from his role while promising further details to be released.
“Effective today, Officer Patrick Connor no longer serves in the police department of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. He resigned late today. But that isn’t where our work ends,” the department wrote on Twitter.
“We are further addressing aspects of this incident and more information will be shared here and with the media tomorrow (July 12)."
The incident was condemned by Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, who said he was “appalled, shocked and disturbed” by the officer's behavior.
He added: “The United States of America is a nation that was built and thrives on diversity. We cannot allow those who do not understand America’s greatness to terrorize people because of their background. This is not the America we all believe in. ”
Trybus was later arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
This says more about how bad the current judicial mainstream is than it does about Kavanaugh, and only serves to reiterate just how important this and other future appointees are. In other words, no matter how bad the Republicans get (and they already are pretty bad), they are still the preferred choice over Dems solely and specifically because of judicial nominations, primarily regarding the 2nd amendment.
