MYSTERY: Did Berkeley police fire stun grenades at Trump supporters, instigate clash?

by Victor Skinner, AMERICAN MIRROR --

A series of videos posted to YouTube allege police involved with the recent riot at the University of California Berkeley fired flash-bangs and smoke bombs at Trump supporters to incite violence during the standoff with Antifa protestors.

Self-described munitions expert Thomas Wictor analyzed several videos from the violence last weekend and compared the footage to claims anti-fascists tossed M-80 fireworks and smoke bombs at their political foes during the melee.

One video alleges that “on April 15, 2017, officers of the Berkeley Police Department fired stun grenades at protestors” from nearby building rooftops, and “the goal of using stun grenades on the crowds was to incite murder that would be blamed on President Trump.”
