A few days after the George Floyd incident, what should have been a minor incident involving police officer Matthew Dages was used by Black Lives Matter and antifa to justify the riots and fire bombing of La Mesa on May 30, 2019. Dages was doxxed on the Internet, received death threats and large crowds gathered at his home under the guise of protesting, but actually to to terrify his family. BLM and antifa firebombed downtown La Mesa, burning the three most prominent buildings to the ground. The anarchists also tried to burn down City Hall and the Police Station. Dozens of businesses were vandalized and looted.
He was scapegoated by La Mesa city officials and La Mesa Police Department. La Mesa city government refused to stand up to ringleaders of the mob. They tried to bribe Matt Dages to leave and get them off the hook. Dages refused the bribe and decided to defend himself. He lost his job and they had him charged with a crime, in the name of political correctness and due to intimidation by the violent BLM/antifa mob.
