Justin Akers Chacon threw the first punch that caused a brawl at a pro-border-wall rally in Otay Mesa on December 9, 2017. Justin Akers Chacon is a professor of Chicano Studies at San Diego City College. He picked the smallest, youngest person there to attack.
Akers ran up and sucker-punched a 17-year-old boy in the mouth, as you will see in the following news video. He did this, even though the young boy’s father had warned Akers Chacon multiple times that he is a minor to leave him alone.
This caused a brawl to break out in which several people were injured. Akers Chacon walked away with a smile on his face, appearing pleased with the result of his cowardly attack on a juvenile, someone half his age, who was barely old enough at that time to grow facial hair.
Justin Akers appears to also have been using a so-called “Zap Cap”. It’s a cap with a built-in pocket that is loaded with something heavy and hard, such lead, which turns an ordinary baseball cap into a dangerous, illegal, blackjack-like device.
It is a device used for street brawling. This would indicate that he came well prepared for a brawl. From his actions, we can probably assume from that street brawling is not a new experience for this violence-prone extremist.
