A Black Lives Matter Organizer was angry and frustrated because she was outnumbered by patriot defending Yorba Linda from their anticipated potential violence, looting and arson. She tried to kill some patriots by running over them in her car and was charged with attempted murder.
A little later at the same event, Kris Wyrick with others were escorting the BLM/Antifa “protesters” out of the area. Patriot Wyrick, was trying to prevent any altercation and he actually broke up a violent brawl as they escorted them. Yet, he is also being prosecuted for felony use of bear spray to disperse the brawlers. The last part of the video below is video taken by Wyrick and shows the incident, for which he has been charged. Two people were about to “stun” Wyrick before he started spraying.
Patriot Prosecuted For Defending Yorba Linda Against BLM / Antifa
Spitzer ran on a promise to improve public safety, but is prosecuting a person, who was trying to keep Yorba Linda safe from physical attacks, arson and vandalism that day.
This protest was in September, 2020, but the case has been delayed due to Covid and the trial has not yet taken place at the time of this posting. It is not too late to contact DA Todd Spitzer and let him know how you feel.
How Black Lives Matter / Antifa Burned Down La Mesa
After the George Floyd incident, some in the BLM movement said they were going to go into “white neighborhoods” and burn them down this time, in contrast to the burning of black neighborhoods in Ferguson and LA riots. Just a few weeks before the Yorba Linda event, BLM and antifa radicals launched an attack on a similar suburb of San Diego, La Mesa.
Both Yorba Linda and La Mesa are majority white. These attacks by BLM and Antifa were racially motivated against whites. They intended to punish white people collectively for what happened to George Floyd. Kris Wyrick was also active in the defense of La Mesa and Santee in San Diego County, leading one of the groups of defenders in La Mesa, as he did also in Yorba Linda.
Naturally, after the burning of La Mesa, local residents and patriots were concerned whether Black Lives Matter and Antifa had an arson attack planned for Yorba Linda. They tried to burn down the Police Station and City Hall in La Mesa. The police prevented them from burning down City property, but the extremists succeeded in burning to the ground three of the most important commercial buildings in La Mesa, Chase Bank, Union Bank and the unreplaceable, historic Randall Lamb building. See the video below.
The Nixon Library is in Yorba Linda only about half a mile from the Black Lives Matter / Antifa staging area. If unopposed, they could have easily marched on the Nixon library and burned that down, like they burned Downtown La Mesa. The police did not stop the arson attack in La Mesa. Patriots helped the police prevent the BLM/antifa arsonists from vandalizing and burning more buildings in successive events in La Mesa and nearby Santee.
Patriots disrupted their activities in Yorba Linda that day. At least one of them, Kris Wyrick, is being singled out for punishment by District Attorney Todd Spitzer for helping to defend Yorba Linda.
Tasha Williamson is a lead organizer for Black Lives Matter in San Diego County. After a policemen arrested a young black man in La Mesa she threatened that there would be violence in La Mesa and throughout San Diego County, unless her demands were met. A few hours later it began to happen as she threatened that it would. There was a riot and arson attack in La Mesa. There major buildings were burned to the ground, dozens of stores were looted. They tried to burn down the police station and city hall.
SIDENOTE: Please do not threaten Tasha Williamson with physical harm or harass her. The purpose of this post is to inform, not to incite. She raises money from any such behavior directed at her. So, if you do that, you will just be helping her raise a lot more money and convince more people to support her.
In this video, Tasha warns that violence will spread all over the County, if their demands are not meet. The riot and arson attack in La Mesa started just a few hours later.
You have to listen carefully, but in this first video below Tasha Williamson justifies the violence in La Mesa on May 30, 2020, because it forced the City government to listen to their demands. They burned down La Mesa in order to punish an innocent police officer. At about 2:25 she says, “You have to understand what it took to get here today and that level of violence was what it took to get here today.”
At about 4:39, she says, “We should already see justice and we don’t and until we do we will continue to see what we got over the weekend.” (BLM and antifa burned downtown La Mesa and tried to burn down City Hall and the police station over the previous weekend.
The most important immediate demand was for La Mesa to fire and make charges against Matt Dages, a La Mesa police officer, who arrested a black man, Amaurie Johnson, a few days before the attack on La Mesa. The arrest was used to justify the attack. For more background on this situation go to this link.
Black Lives Matter organizer, Tasha Williamson, live-streams at 8:50 PM to her followers that the “revolution has started”. According to the police timeline, the reports of looting of the Vons stores started at 9:12 PM. A little more than two hours later, at 11.11 PM Chase bank was reported to be on fire and the other two buildings were torched only minutes thereafter. This live-stream by Tasha Williamson could have been a green-light to start the ransacking of businesses and the following arson attack on La Mesa. Williamson was on site to view it when the burning of the banks started.
Under pressure from BLM, Dages was falsely charged and prosecuted for a felony of filing a false police report, but on December 10 2021 he was found “not guilty”. There were no substantive inaccuracies in his report.
Tasha Williamson has a history of threatening city governments with violence, in order to get what she wants. Two years earlier Tasha Williamson threatened to burn down National City, another suburb of San Diego if they did not fire their police chief. She declared that she would show up with 10,000 people at the next Council Meeting and that the town would look like Ferguson when they are done.
The family of Earl McNeil received a settlement of $300K from National City. See this link for a description of what happened to Earl McNeil. The case was much like George Floyd’s, he was on drugs and died in a hospital after being restrained by the police.
In the end, I do not believe that Tasha Williams directly orders the mob attacks. She just gives green light for it. It more likely antifa and the more radical BLM members that do the dirty work, only indirectly in coordination with Williamson. She acts as the frontwoman with the government entity to make demands and threatens them with more violence from other organizers if they do not comply.
Just two days after George Floyd’s death, what should have been a minor incident involving police officer, Matthew Dages, was exploited 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 terrorize his family.
In what should be considered a domestic terrorist attack, BLM and antifa firebombed downtown La Mesa, burning the three most prominent buildings to the ground, two banks and an irreplaceable, historic building owned by an architectural firm. The anarchists also set a fire to burn down City Hall and the Police Station, but the fire petered out. Dozens of businesses were vandalized and looted.
There was a consortium of law-enforcement agencies, including the FBI, investigating this attack on La Mesa. The three commercial buildings burned so quickly and completely that it appeared to be a professional arson, but they never got to the bottom of who burned down these three buildings to prosecute the ringleaders. At least one insider said that it was a professional arson. However, to appease BLM/antifa they are prosecuting this policeman for a felony, who was just trying to do his job and had to deal with a belligerent person who felt entitled to defy police officers.
UPDATE:The jury returned a verdict of “not guilty” on 12/10/2021. BLM and antifa failed in their attempt to have this policeman convicted of a trumped-up charge of filing a fake report on Amaurie Johnson.
Dages 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 with a large, six-figure payment, if he would just leave and get them off the hook. Dages refused the bribe and decided to defend himself. He lost his job and was charged with a felony, due to intimidation by the violent BLM/antifa mob, but also because some members of La Mesa City government are leftists and actually support the terroristic tactics of BLM/antifa and demanded that the San Diego County district attorney prosecute the officer.
District Attorney, Summer Stephan is prosecuting this officer in what amounts to a political show trial to appease BLM/antifa terrorists, who threatened to attack La Mesa again and other cities throughout the County if their demands to scapegoat and punish Officer Dages were not met.
If any mistakes were made in this arrest, something like this would have normally been handled via the administrative process or even in civil court, not by filing felony charges on the officer. The felony charge is just a result of government officials bowing to political pressure and implied or explicit terroristic threats from BLM. DA Summer Stephan used the felony charge as the easy way out of a bad situation for her. Rewarding arsonists, looters and terrorists for their crimes will just mean you get more of he same in the future.

(The Pipe Hitter Foundation is raising money for Dages, the same people that raised defense funds for Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher. “Pipe Hitter” is slang for an unapologetic American.)
BLM/antifa justified the riot (attack) in La Mesa with this minor police encounter. BLM had planned to riot in San Diego on that day, until this event happened. However, La Mesa is a easier target with a small, suburban police force and a majority white, liberal population. After the George Floyd death, BLM had promised to take their riots to the white suburbs. La Mesa was the perfect opportunity, with a very leftist City Council and situated on a rail line that was convenient transportation for rioters, looters and arsonists, who flooded into town that night using the trolley system.
Some think that the incident with Officer Dages arresting Amaurie Johnson was a setup, planned to provoke a police officer in order to justify an attack on La Mesa. Amaurie’s friends were on the spot in about 30 seconds to take video that went viral and led to the riot and arson attack on La Mesa. An attorney was also already on site within a few feet also taking video and shouting legal advice to Amaurie. Even if it was only a chance occurrence, BLM and antifa certainly took full advantage of it.
All of San Diego should be supporting him and his family in clearing his good name as a police officer. See the videos below.
Christina Dages makes the point in the above video that they would not try to bribe them to leave if Officer Dages had done anything wrong. People will often fight like hell if they feel they have been wronged in an outrageous way. That is exactly what Dages and his wife are doing. They are fighting this injustice tooth and nail.

Background videos, the BLM/antifa attack on La Mesa
This is a response by the police to to an incident where a rioting woman, Leslie Furcron, was accidentally shot in the head with a beanbag several hours after the event was declared an unlawful assembly. Furcron, a grandmother, did not fail to disperse, she rushed to the site after she saw from a livestream that it had become a riot, in order to join the riot and see them burn down the police station.
The Mayor of La Mesa called it an concerted attack and an effort to burn the city to the ground. They tried, but failed, to burn down the City Hall and the Police Station. They also attacked policemen with deadly weapons, large rocks.
This is a video of the main organizer of Black Lives Matter in San Diego, Tasha Williamson, with an entourage of other radicals, observing buildings in Downtown La Mesa being torched and burned to the ground by BLM/antifa supporters.
Tasha Williams issued a slightly veiled threat that violence and destruction will spread to the entire County if Matt Dages is not fired. Later, they added the demand that Dages be prosecuted. This prediction of violence was issued in front of Matt Dages home just a couple hours before the looting, vandalism and arson began in La Mesa, which did tremendous damage as seen in the previous video.
It just seems that BLM and their antifa allies terrorized La Mesa and County officials to the extent that they unjustly had Officer Dages prosecuted, due to threat of retaliation from the mob of arsonists and vandals if they refused.
The last part of this video above is Tasha Williamson in 2018 threatening to burn down nearby National City if they did not fire their Chief of Police. She never made good on that threat, but La Mesa was actually burned down.

A 2nd amendment advocacy group, the “San Diego County Gun Owners”, is helping to arm and train 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 suggests 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 its 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, organizations I believe 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
she threatened in July, 2018, to burn down that city, because the Council was not acting on her demands to fire the police chief.
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 revolutionary, anarcho-communist ideology, similar in ideology 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.
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 extreme gun-control and certainly would disarm average American citizens, if they were to obtain the power they want.
Tasha and her gang will justify arming themselves, due to real or perceived threats. Not to justify threats against anyone, but any such threats were provoked by the violence, rioting and arson attacks of BLM and Antifa and their sympathizers. 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.
