What the police did was NOT give Antifa a permit to protest and then had a 'stand down' order. This just allowed them to "show up" - unlawfully. Once the rioters in engaged it other, the cops used it as a pretense to disperse the mobs as unlawful assembly.
My guess is - this is why people were co-mingling in the streets and garages as they were dispersed, leading to even more violent clashes.
I don't believe the Nazis would have burned down anything (like the Muslim limo in DC or the fires set at Berkley). And if they even attempted to - bam, arrest them! Win-win! Free speech preserved and Nazis in jail.
In April 2006, police records show Hodgkinson went to a neighbor’s house looking for his daughter and “used bodily force to damage” a wooden door upstairs. Witnesses said Hodgkinson forced his way into the home looking for his teenage daughter and grabbed her by the hair when he found her upstairs, according to a police narrative on file with St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department.
His daughter escaped and got into the neighbor’s car, but Hodgkinson opened the door of the car, pulled out a pocket knife and cut off the seat belt she was wearing, records show. Hodgkinson’s wife joined him, struggling to pull out their daughter, as Hodgkinson punched the neighbor who was in the driver’s seat of the car in the face, witnesses told police.
Later, Joel Fernandez, the boyfriend of the woman who was punched, went to Hodgkinson’s home to confront him. He said Hodgkinson “walked outside with a shotgun and aimed it at Fernandez face,” a complaint states. Hodgkinson struck Fernandez on the side of his face with the wooden stock of the shotgun and fired off one round as Fernandez ran away.
