Jesse Sauve was arrested as we exited Chicano Park surrounded by an angry crowd of militant chicanos, antifa anarchists and neo-Marxists. He was using an elongated stun gun / flashlight to ward off the angry, violent crowd without threatening anyone specifically. Because the stun gun was long, the police arrested him for carrying a billy club, even though he had no intent to use the device as that and believed that it did not fit the legal definition of a billy club. He was told by the seller that it was legal. The length of the stun guy allowed him to defend himself from a greater distance. The definition of a billy is pretty vague and any long object can be classified as a billy if you plan to use it that way, but that was not the case in this incident. You can hear Jesse urging people to not engage and move on, while flashing his stun gun to warn people off. He was just trying to protect innocent people and prevent violence. He is arrested at 3:10 in this video.
Our imperious San Diego City Attorney, Mara Elliott, is a progressive politician. Her leftism and Hispanic racial identity bias can explain the harsh prosecution of Jesse, who is, himself, a proud Hispanic. She sees him as being off the progressive reservation, a race traitor (vendido). For this reason, Jesse is being harshly persecuted for trying to ward off attacks at an event last February by a violent mob at Chicano Park.
On February 3, 2018 about 60-70 pro-Americans went to this radical, municipal park to fly the American flag and display the national colors. The event, organized by the Bordertown Patriots, was called a “Patriot Picnic”. Chicano Park in San Diego is a no-go zone for openly patriotic Americans. It is a La Raza nationalist park, where only the La Raza and Aztlan flags are allowed to be flown in a superior position. A proud American flying the flag is very likely to be harrassed, abused and attacked in this anti-American, municipal park.
They hold this taxpayer-funded park to be the first part of their Chicano national territory to be occupied, called “Aztlan”. By means of a slander campaign against us, the militants incited 600 angry people to show up to block our way to the center of the park and the main flagstaff where some of them claimed we would raise a Nazi flag, when they knew full well that we only intended to fly the American flag in a public park.
The 50-60 police present confined the patriots to a free speech zone, but when we left, a large mob waited for us outside, some of whom followed us for a mile. A policeman had been beaten and seriously injured by one of the persons outside the free speech zone. His nose and cheek bones were broken and a pool of his blood was on the sidewalk of our exit street.
The mob was growing. The officer-in-charge told us the the police were leaving, because he feared for the safety of his own officers and that, if we wanted protection from the mob, we would have to leave with them. Unknown to us one of his officers had already just been seriously injured. Some saw a pool of the officers blood on the way out.
Jesse was using an elongated flashlight/stun gun to ward off attacks by the threatening mob, which he had purchased legally. Such devices are sold by local stores such as Walmart and Best Buy. It is just as illegal to sell a “billy” as to possess one. So, why is only Jesse being prosecuted and not the sellers of such devices at local stores? Selective prosecution? He did not threaten anyone with it as a club, he was just letting those in the area know that he had a (legal) stun gun to prevent them from attacking us.
They initially charged Jesse with a felony. He refused to plead guilty and they eventually reduced the charge to a misdemeanor, anyway, even though he did not accept a plea, because they were overcharging him just to intimidate him and negotiate a plea bargain without a trial.
Jesse is being prosecuted by a vindictive, city attorney, Mara Elliott, in a statement released to the media, called my blog a “hate group”, intending to slander the ad largely hoc group who wanted only to freely access this municipal park, fly the American flag and discuss the anti-American murals there. Mara Elliott prosecutes pro-Americans to the max and lets fellow progressives off the hook.
There had been earlier a defamation campaign by the La Raza nationalist park supporters and their radical, anarchist, progressive and neo-Marxist allies to slandered us as white nationalists, supremacists, Nazis and fascists. As already mentioned, Jesse is actually Latino and proud of his Mexican origins, not a white supremacist at all as our City Attorney would like to have the public believe.
There are second amendment aspects to this case, also, because the 2nd amendment does not say you have a right to keep and bear only firearms, but *any* arms, including swords and clubs. Jesse was using this legal stun gun for self-defense. The long length allowed him to defend himself using the stun gun from a distance, while remaining out of arm’s reach of the rabid, violent park supporters. If it’s illegal for Jesse to carry in self-defense, they should also prosecute local store managers for selling similar devices.
If you can’t defend yourself and others, you give up your rights. It’s actually just as illegal in California to have even a baseball bat for personal defense in your own home as any billy club. They could prosecute you for that, too, if they wanted. However, this device was actually being used in a legal way as a stun gun and not a billy club.
Our rights were denied that day, due to intimidation via mob violence. The City of San Diego did not enforce our rights to visit a municipal park without harassment, threats and actual violence. They denied our right to self defense even after we had left the park and were walking in the open street to our cars to leave, pursued by the mob for a mile. The police were not even able to defend themselves that day, much less fully protect us, a group that consisted of many older and middle-aged persons.
At taxpayer expense, Chicano Park in San Diego honors, as heros, communist dictator, Fidel Castro, and terrorist, Che Guevara, and also a couple of the Chicano movement founders, such as Reies Tijerina, whose men actually shot law enforcement officers and killed one of them, and Rodolfo Gonzales, who justified the killing of law enforcement officials as a “revolutionary act”.
They also openly claim that the southwestern United States is their national homeland, Aztlan, which they are destined to control. The park, which was occupied by Chicanos in 1970 is glorified as the first part of Aztlan to be taken.
That Chicano Park is the first part of Aztlan is why the Chicano Park Steering Committee is very adverse to the American flag been flown more prominently than the flags symbolizing La Raza and Aztlan. They require the American flag to be, at best, inferior in the park to their flags, if allowed to fly at all. You can expect to be harassed and attacked there, if you fly the American flag freely without kowtowing first to the local gangster-like group, which runs the park with their allies by threats and intimidation, called the Chicano Park Steering Committee.
In the maps below, the top flag displays the three-faced symbol of La Raza, which represents the mixture of the Spanish and indigenous peoples to produce the superior mestizo race, La Raza. The lower flag features the map of the claimed national homeland of the Chicanos, Aztlan.
The Chicano Park Steering Committee was embarrassed that we publicized that the American flag was normally banned there. Just before this (second) Patriot Picnic in February, they started allowing the Hispanic vets to fly a flag every day in a remote corner of the park, but not in the main, center area of the park or on the higher flagpole there. It is still required to remain inferior to their La Raza and Aztlan flags.

Frederick Jefferson, who seriously injured a police officer, was one of the people waiting for us on the street that we would use to exit the free speech area.
