So far 10 persons identified as antifa have been charged with criminal conspiracy and a large number of other felonies for their attack on a pro-Trump rally in Pacific Beach, a suburb of San Diego on January 9, 2021. Their names are Alexander Akridge-Jacobs, Jesse Merrel Cannon, Joseph Austin Gaskins, Brian Lightfoot, Christian Martinez, Luis Francisco Mora. Bryan Rivera, Faraz Martin Talab, Jeremy White and Erich Louis Yack.
Jonah Bigel was arrested some months ago and is already being tried. He is also mentioned in the criminal acts listed below, but he has not been charged in the criminal conspiracy so far.
This post is under construction. I will be added information here, as I obtain it.
A prelim hearing is scheduled for 12/17, presumably at the downtown San Diego courthouse. More exact information will be posted later.
Bigel is charged with a crime for the 1/9/21 event, but he was arrested earlier in February, 2021 and has been being prosecuted since them. To read more about Joseph Bigel go to this link:
After a high school championship basketball game, between Coronado High and Orange Glenn High of Escondido, tortillas were thrown, which was taken as an racist act against the majority Latino team from Orange Glenn. It appears that the racist act was “engineered” by an Democratic operative in order to pressure Coronado to implement the teaching of Critical Race Theory and other such Marxist racial ideology in Coronado, which is a Republican enclave in San Diego, Ca. Lucas Serna, brought the tortillas and encouraged impressionable, young Coronado students to throw them, saying it was a celebratory thing and okay to do, even that it was approved by the Coach.
According to a local Talk Show host, Carl DeMaio, Lucas Serna turns out to be a member of the local Democrat Club, a Democratic Socialist and a leader in the SEIU. It is believed he set Coronado up for a charge of racism, a dirty trick.
The school superintendent and most of the school board jumped to the conclusion that Coronado High students were guilty before the investigations were done. The California Interscholastic Federation also jumped the gun and issued a statement stripping Coronado High of the SoCal Championship and putting the school on probation for three years.
UPDATE: Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey calls on School Board to Apologize for Smearing Coronado and Students
As a result of this incident, a couple of professional leftist agitators have gotten involved and are exploiting it for publicity and fundraising purposes. Enrique Morones and Tasha Williamson are two of them. Yusef Miller is probably another, though I have not been following him. I have posted links to archives for Enrique Morones and Tasha Williamson in the upper right margin.
Enrique Morones is known for tricking the Border Patrol, arranging a cross border wedding (see video) for a convicted, major cartel drug smuggler in December, 2017.
Tasha Williamson was arrested when she threatened to burn down National City in 2018 (see video) and was the most prominent BLM leader with the mob burned La Mesa’s downtown to the ground during a BLM protest turned riot.
This post provides one page where interested persons can obtain an overview of what happened and links to relevant internet resources. Whether you live in Coronado or not, this is a good example of a leftist dirty trick and anyone can learn something about their tactics and how they operate from this example. Around the time that Trump was elected president, we saw many incidences of fake hate crimes and/or over prosecution of minor incidents, deemed hate, for political purposes.
PROFESSIONAL LEFTIST AGITATOR, ENRIQUE MORONES
Enrique Morones hypocritically rails against racism, when it seems not to be about racism at all, but trying to frame others as being racist for political purposes. In public comments at a special CHS board meeting, he called the tortillas, “bombs of racism”.
This veteran confronted the BLM marchers head-on. The BLM radicals were lead by Tasha Williamson and marched down the middle of Coronado’s main street, flying a Mexican flag, vandalizing public property and chanting insulting slogans. I can totally understand how he feels, but I would not personally recommend this approach. It can get you in more trouble than it’s worth. As said already above, Tasha Williamson threatened to burn down National City in June of 2018 and was the BLM leader in La Mesa (as well as all of San Diego County) when downtown La Mesa was burned to the ground during a BLM/Antifa riot. She toured La Mesa’s downtown with her entourage as it burned during the riot. See the video here.
More information about yesterday’s protest: A man was detained by police for physically assaulting protesters. Coronado police provided this statement: The man was detained then released due to the fact that the victim declined to press charges.
Citizens of Coronado mostly opposed the rush-to-judgment by the School Board. Three leftist agitators (outsiders) also spoke out trying to brand Coronado as an enclave of racism, Yusef Miller (8:30), Enrique Morones (14:20) and Tasha Williamson (18:10).
A 2nd amendment advocacy group, the “San Diego County Gun Owners”, is helping to arm local members of the violent antifa and Black Lives Matter groups. In the Tweet thread below, a person belonging to Antifa and/or Black Lives Matter suggest that others engage the leadership of the San Diego County Gun Owners group for assistance in obtaining guns, training, gear and CCW permits.
This comes as many are concerned that violence could break out again, due to the controversy over the presidential election and transition. SDCGO is a political PAC and are not required to help those who do not support their mission. Some ask why they do this? Probably they do it, because they profit from it. Ask Michael Schwartz directly why they do it.
It is suggested that members request that they stop training Antifa and BLM members, which organizations are fundamentally opposed to their mission. Members should withhold their dues, until SDCGO leadership stops this. Contact the SDCGO PAC to complain at this contact link
Tasha Williamson is the lead organizer and spokesperson for Black Lives Matter in La Mesa and in San Diego. On April 30th, 2020, Black Lives Matter rioted in La Mesa. They vandalized and attacked the police station with rocks and bottles. BLM and Antifa burned two major banks buildings and the historic Randall Lamb building in Downtown La Mesa. They looted numerous stores and burned vehicles. They intended to burn down the police station and City Hall, as had happened with a police station the previous night in Minneapolis. They did start a fire in the City Hall, next to the police station, but it petered out. The DA announced recently that at least 20 “protesters” have been charged with felonies.
The Facebook user “Oside4All” includes a screenshot from Tasha Williamson’s Instagram account, lauding the gun advocacy group for helping her and others arm and train themselves for purposes of “self defense”. Tasha uses the handle “queenta4” on Instagram.
This next image is a screenshot of Tasha’s Facebook page that OSide4All tweeted. It is stated here that the SDCGO group helped Tasha and others in arming themselves. Note that they talk of “comrades” being able to obtain guns, CCW’s, gun safes, and training from SDCGO, as well as note the other revolutionary jargon that they use.
Antifa and Black Lives Matter have an revolutionary, anarcho-communist ideology, similar to terrorists groups of the 1960’s and 1970’s such as the Weathermen, the Black Liberation Army, the Black Panthers and, in Europe, the Red Army Faction, aka the Badder-Meinhof Gang. These groups justified using violence on a large scale to terrorize and thereby bring about radical political change, as does antifa and and the more radical elements of Black Lives Matter.
In the 1970’s, RAF terrorists had to go to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in Jordan to obtain guns and training. In San Diego, it is much more convenient. Terrorist groups can just obtain arms, training and other assistance locally via the reputedly patriotic San Diego County Gun Owners organization!
Should a supposedly conservative, constitutional group, which claims to be a patriot group, be training members of such violence-prone and anti-American organizations? These groups are against the constitution, support gun-control and certainly would disarm average American citizens, if they were to obtain the power they crave.
Tasha and her gang will justify arming themselves, due to real or perceived threats. Not to justify threats for anyone, but any such threats were provoked by the violence, rioting and arson attacks of BLM and Antifa, themselves. The “Michael” that they mention, helping them to arm and train has been identified as the executive director of the SDCGO, Michael Schwartz.
Finally, this a the image also from the screenshot of Tasha’s Instagram page that shows the invitation from the SDCGO to the general public, which some in BLM and Antifa are exploiting for their own purposes.
This is a partial list of persons arrested at Black Lives Matter protests / riots in San Diego County by various local police agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. If you have any information to add to this list, you can send it to me via the contact button at the top of the page, or just click here.
I will be updating this list as more information becomes available. There are probably at least 2-3 times as many arrestees as are shown in this current list. Click on “full screen” to get a better view of the document.
Well, there may have been up to a couple hundred arrested for misdemeanors, who will likely not be prosecuted, but I am only going to try to list those, who seem likely to be prosecuted for a more serious crime.
The FBI and local law enforcement officials have arrested two men as suspects, Alexander Jacob King and Ricky Bernard Cooper, in the burning of Chase Bank in La Mesa, California during the Black Lives Matter protest of May 30, 2020. The scheduled protest quickly turned into a riot, with attacks on the police station, City Hall, vandalism, looting and arson. It appeared that the Black-Lives-Matter rioters intended to burn down the La Mesa Police Station, as had happened in Minneapolis just the night before. The La Mesa Police prevented them from gaining control of the police station and their attention turned to the banks and other buildings. They did set fire to an annex to City Hall next door to the police station, also, but the fire died out before it could engulf City Hall.
This is video of a leading Black-Lives-Matter organizer, Tasha Williamson, and her entourage of supporters touring the scene as Chase and Union banks are burned to the ground and passing drivers appear to honk approval. Another major building, the historic Randall Lamb building was burned at the same time, just behind the two banks.
Stephen Glenn McLeod, aka Lord Mcleod, was one of the more highly visible people during the Black Lives Matter protests and riots in San Diego in the late summer. He has just been charged in federal court with a felony for aiming a laser at at a police helicopter.
UPDATE: 9/4/2021 Stephen Glenn McLeod was sentenced on 9/1/2021 for pointing a laser pointer at a police helicopter to 6 months in federal prison and two years supervised release. You can read the details of the judgment here. Read more about McLeod’s political exremism here.
The San Diego District Attorney said recently that the County has charged about two dozen persons with felonies. It is not known, how many federal police have charged. This is what really put a damper on the vandalism, mob action and riots by Black Lives Matter in San Diego, quiet, behind-the-scenes police work by San Diego and federal agencies. It would seem that a lot more is yet to come out.
San Diego is probably not unique. This kind of police action has likely been taking place around the country. The media just does not much cover it. Read the details of McLeod’s charges below in this media release from the US Attorney’s Office.
Tasha Williamson, an organizer for Black Lives Matter, said on October 13 that everyone is just waiting for the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Unit (CIU) to make their move. Maybe it has started, as she predicted. She points out that people will soon be offered immunity deals to testify against their fellow accused criminals. Two banks and another major building were burned to the ground in La Mesa during the Black Lives Matter riot on May 30th, where Williamson was the most prominent organizer and spokesperson.
McLeod admits in one of his videos that he takes medication for a psychological disorder, called schizoaffective disorder. If true, this may help explain his delusional, manic behavior, but would not necessarily absolve him of legal liability, unless he meets the legal definition of insanity at the time he allegedly committed the crime.
Below are a couple of videos featuring Stephen McLeod. Tasha Williamson is the black woman at the start of the first video.
In this video, Stephen McLeod more or less admits that Black Lives Matter burned down two banks and another major building in downtown La Mesa and says it was retribution for slavery. McLeod is he one in the preview image with the black cap, shaved head and red beard.
Stephen McLeod – BLM Bank Burnings Were Retribution For Slavery
McLeod was a “volunteer” for Black Lives Matter and was a regular participant at the protests and in the mob violence and riots. He drove an illegal green van that has no registration, no insurance and he has the VIN covered up, as if it may be stolen. He often followed the marches in his illegal green van and carried supplies for the march.
Therefore, he was an insider and it sounds as if he may have some knowledge about the devastating arson attack on La Mesa, judging from what he says about the motivation for the attack. Black Lives Matter rioters also set fire to part of City Hall that night, although the fire petered out. They also appeared to have had the intention of burning down the police station as had just happened in Minneapolis the night before the riot here in La Mesa, which occurred on the night of May 30th.
In this next video, McLeod participates in an attack on a neighbor at a protest at the San Diego Police Chief’s residence on August 28th. This was the same night that he is accused of aiming a laser at a police helicopter. Notice the green laser being pointed in the eyes of the beating victim at about 10:00. That was probably McLeod pointing the laser. This is actually McLeod’s video of the event that I am re-using.
McLeod Part Of BLM Mob That Beats Police Chief’s Neighbor (About 9:00)
McLeod is part of a this group of Black-Lives-Matter anarchists, brawling with police outside the San Diego Police Department headquarters in Downtown San Diego. This event took place on August 24, 2020 at a sympathy for Kenosha protest. The man in blue is Stephen McLeod.
McLeod was living in his van for about a year and a half. He got a job in July, 2020, as a caregiver for an elderly surgeon, who lives downtown. This may have been arranged for him as indirect reward for his participation in the the Black Lives Matter protests. He was allowed the use of a luxury, furnished condominium unit, which rents for more than $2,000 per month. The doctor that he cares for lives in another unit. He also apparently receives a monthly disability check from the government, probably due to his psychological disorder.
Stephen McLeod Stopped By SDPD In His Illegal BLM “support” van
Surveillance video captures vandals in Antifa garb painting Nazi Swastikas, inverted crosses, pentagrams, White Power, Black lives Matter (BLM) and even Biden 2020 on a Chaldean Catholic Church, whose congregation is primarily Christian refugees and immigrants from Iraq.
The church is St. Peter Chaldean Catholic Diocese in El Cajon, California. Black Lives Matter and antifa are severely retarded in their thinking processes. So, one can only speculate what their reasoning is for vandalizing a Middle Eastern immigrant/refugee church in this way.
I can only suppose they were thinking people would blame it on white supremacists and neo-Nazis trying to look like antifa/BLM/Biden supporters. These have to be some of the the dumbest terrorists and revolutionaries ever.
Here’s another video of the damage. After the video starts, click on full screen at the bottom to make it fit within your screen.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa come to Poway, Ca and greatly outnumbered by patriots and Trump supporters. Poway is called the “City in the Country” and is a town with traditional American values. The current Mayor, Steve Vaus, is a county western singer. It’s not a welcoming place for Black Lives Matter and antifa anarchists.
There were about 150 patriots versus 50-60 BLM and Antifa. Patriots started off occupying three street corners and BLM/Antifa had one. Some of the BLM were high school girls.
Antifa moves to take over one of the street corners from the patriots at 00:50. A group of patriots moves in to take the corner back.
There appears to be one black person present at this event among a couple hundred participants. She is on the patriot, Trump supporter side.
The antifa holding a shield (02:30) has a cane that was believed to have a sword in it. The handle was shaped like a small pick ax. The sheriff deputies say they cannot do anything about it until they see the concealed sword.
Antifa/BLM decide to go back to their corner at about 06:25. They briefly block traffic, but the deputies come and clear them from the street.
I asked one of the high school girls why there were no blacks at the Black Lives Matter event. She said they were afraid to come. The idea that a group of self-appointed whites have to speak for blacks is a racist idea, in itself.
At 11:30, some the antifa/BLM had crossed the street to the patriot side. Someone threw a smoke bomb. The deputies get in the middle and separate the two sides. Some in the BLM/Antifa crowd start to go home.
At 15:00 the antifa group leaves.
The women in the yellow shirts are the Wall of Moms, a group that was formed supposedly to protect antifa from being attacked.
DEC is “Defend East County”, a Facebook page started to coordinate responses to terroristic Black Lives Matter mobs.
Black Lives Matter terrorists in San Diego call for police stations to be burned to the ground, unless their demands are met. Of course BLM has already burned a couple of police stations down in other places, such as Portland and Minneapolis.
In this area, they have also burned to the ground two major banks and another major, historic building in La Mesa, a suburb of San Diego. They set fire to a City Hall annex in La Mesa. They intended to burn down the police station in La Mesa, during the riot there on May 30th. The police dispersed them with tear gas, bean bags and rubber bullets, before they are able to do it.
So, it’s not just an empty threat. Their terrorist threats have a great deal of credibility if they get a chance to carry them out.
When they torched La Mesa, the media and certain politicians claimed that it was not the BLM protesters who did the arson, but some mysterious group that no one knows and which appeared out of nowhere to “hijack” the peaceful BLM protest.
Their protests never have been really peaceful. They have generally all violated the law and trampled on the rights of other citizens. In case anyone still needs to be convinced, this video shows that the “protesters” are totally in agreement with wantonly burning down buildings, acts of terrorism.
At a Black Lives Matter protest at the San Diego County jail, protesters remove by force an accused drug trafficker from the custody of two undercover FBI agents. This occurred on 9/5/2020.
The stress of the confrontation with the mob caused the woman to have a seizure. The agents backed off when she started having a seizure, so a medic could help her. The protesters surrounded her and prevented the agents from taking custody again.
According to the FBI news release below, help was called and the FBI eventually regained custody.
The protest was a “Free Denzel Draughn” event. Draughn is in County jail, accused of 19 felonies for pepper spraying nine police officers in an attempt to prevent them from arresting a protester at another event more than a week earlier.
Obviously, the people who took the woman away from the FBI were committing felonies, themselves, and should be locked up in jail with their comrade, Denzel Draughn. Ironically, the felonies they committed are the same as Draughn committed, obstruction of a law enforcement agent.
It appears that at least 6-8 of them that were pulling the prisoner away, or putting hands on the agents should be charged. This would be a federal crime and therefore not subject to the local pressure in San Diego from liberal, progressive politicians and left-wing media.
Black Lives Matter protesters think they are above the law. The courts are beginning to re-open and they can be tried now for their felonies. BLM protesters should realize that there can be serious consequences for what they do.
Notice, also, that the great majority of these protesters are white and Hispanic with only a couple of token blacks participating. In San Diego, at least, this is primarily a white and brown, neo-communist, revolutionary movement much more than it is a black civil rights movement.
