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.
Denzel Draughn is an organizer for Black Lives Matter in San Diego, who pepper-sprayed nine policemen. He resides in Indiana and has an extensive criminal record in Ohio. He has been charged with a number of misdemeanors and two felonies in Ohio, according to a report by an internet service, White Pages.
UPDATE: On 12/9/2021, a jury in San Diego found Denzel “not guilty” of spraying the police officers even though there is video showing him doing it as seen above. The rational for the “innocent” verdict was that he was protecting fellow BLM radicals, who were brawling with the police.
Denzel Draughn may have an outstanding felony arrest warrant in Ohio or may be subject to federal prosecution for crossing state lines to participate in a riot. His $750K bail seems very reasonable. This criminal should not be able o obtain an easy release on bail.
In this event, the police stopped the driver of a SUV that was bringing up the rear of the march for running a red light. An abusive, profane, hostile and threatening mob gathered around the police as they questioned the driver. One policemen held up a can of pepper spray to ward off the mob. A person tried to slap the can out of his hand and the policeman sprayed him.
That started a melee and the police are arresting that man when this clip above starts. A can of pepper spray somehow becomes loose and rolls onto the sidewalk. Draughn picks up the can and sprays the group of policemen arresting the first man.
He was booked on 9 charges of obstruction of a police officer, 9 charges of using tear gas against a police officer and one of possessing a tear-gas projectile device. This event was on August 28, 2020.
His Black Lives Matter comrades are calling him a “hero”, but he seems to be acting just as a police-hating criminal and anarchistic, ideological fanatic. Criminals seem to be common among the hard-core instigators in our local black lives matter movement and probably elsewhere, as well.
Black Lives Matter is a criminal, terroristic, revolutionary movement. In San Diego they have burned two banks and another major building in La Mesa. They have looted numerous businesses and vandalized property all over the San Diego County. They have assaulted, harassed and abused police as well as ordinary, law-abiding citizens.
Because they have a peaceful event every once in a while, does not erase their numerous crimes committed at other events. Many of them deserve to be arrested and sent to prison. Hopefully, now that San Diego courts are beginning to open again, this will become more possible going forward.
Of course, the police had a legal right to arrest the first man and to use reasonable force to do it. Reportedly, ten people were ultimately arrested in this incident. Their own, threatening mob tactics turned what would have been at most a traffic ticket into many serious felony charges for multiple persons, not just Denzel Draughn.
If the police were using more force than normal, it was due to the presence of the angry mob trying to interfere with them. Denzel Draughn could be facing decades in prison due to his own fanaticism and that of his comrades. BLM’s mob rule concept is not equivalent to the legal authority of the police, sorry.
You can see more video of this episode at these links. Liz Jones shows the traffic stop that was swarmed by a threatening mob of Black Lives Matter protesters.
This video by an unknown expert explains why law enforcement officers shoot suspects who are unarmed, such in the Jacob Blake case, which triggered devastating “Black Lives Matter” riots in Kenosha Wisconsin. The most black lives, or lives of any race, would be saved during arrests, if the citizen would just respect police officers and cooperate when the law requires cooperation, at least.
It’s all about reaction time. The criminal has no reaction time if he initiates the attack. The policeman is at a disadvantage, because it takes him/her a couple more tenths of a second to react once he sees the weapon about to be used against him.
A cult-like, Black Lives Matter mob led by Tasha Williamson took over the San Diego Police Chief’s Neighborhood and attacked one of his patriotic neighbors on August 27, 2020. The encounter with the Chief’s neighbor starts at about 9:00 into the video. The actual punch comes at about 12:00.
Some are screaming hysterically about someone having a knife. However, the young man at the beginning, who has a pocket knife, is with Black Lives Matter. He is a participant in this mob action, not an outsider.
The neighbor, who was attacked, is not known to be part of any defense group as they claim he is a member of Defend East County (DEC). He appears to be just a concerned, patriotic neighbor.
Many on the far left label anyone, who is pro-America, a “racial supremacist”, because their neo-communist propaganda promotes the idea that the entire system is racist and should be overthrown.
The mob also vandalized the street with obscene Graffiti against the police. Loud music was played until late at night and the neighbors were generally terrorized. According to a report by KUSI News, the police are investigating this entire event and may file charges.
Denzel Draughn was arrested in San Diego on August 29th at a Black Lives Matter protest and booked on 19 felonies. The charges are nine counts of obstruction/ resisting arrest, nine counts of use of tear gas against an officer and one count of possession of a tear gas projectile weapon.
Apparently, since they terrorized the police chief’s own neighborhood the other night and attacked one of his neighbors, it’s no more “Mr. Nice Guy” with the SDPD for the Black Lives Matter terrorists. If you pepper spray an entire crowd of cops, you could be in serious trouble.
According to a White Pages report, Denzel Draughn has an extensive criminal record in Ohio. Mostly, misdemeanors, but there appear to be two outstanding felony charges from three years ago in Ohio. Scroll down to see the report. If he has unresolved charges in another state, that may be why his bail has been set so high, because he would be a flight risk.
Because his current address is still in Indiana, it raises the possibility that he crossed state lines to participate in Black Lives Matter riots in San Diego. If true this could be an additional federal offense.
The local media has completely ignored this story, so far. I think the reason is probably because our local politicians want to sweep this under the rug and let this terrorist off the hook. We have learned in the past that local politicians sometimes give the media outlets directives and our traitor media has always been enamored with BLM to begin with. Thanks to those who have already taken up this story.
This case really needs high visibility on the internet, national attention, so the local media cannot continue to suppress and censor news about it. This post will be updated as new information becomes available. Please feel free to reuse anything in this post. The photo is not mine, but it was posted in the Internet. So, probably can be re-used for the purpose of news. If you need anything, contact me via the contact tab at the top. The photo displayed was obtained from a flyer for a protest to get him released from jail and is therefore presumably his image.
This is the info on the “Who’s in jail” website. Use the arrows on the bar at the bottom to see all the charges. His bail was originally set at $750K, then was reduced to $200K as shown on his info below. However, on the Sheriff’s website, it has been raised again back to $750K.
This is the White Pages report on Denzel Draughn. Use the arrows at the bottom of the frame to page through the report. White Pages does not claim to always be 100% accurate and reliable, so you have to keep that in mind.
