Police descended on the Nevada Democrat Convention when the already rancorous meeting turned violent. Fighting broke out between Sanders and Clinton supporters leading to injuries requiring medical attention. Sanders’ people at the convention were upset that the Clinton forces were trying to force through a set of convention rules designed to disenfranchise Sanders. Clinton supporters were upset at being caught. This led to a series of arguments and then to fighting.
One woman can be heard screaming, “We need a medic in the front! We need a medic in the front!”
One Bernie supporter grabbed the microphone trying to get people to leave under threat of arrest from the Sheriff’s deputies massing at the front of the room to prevent additional violence. “Everybody please leave out of here peacefully,” he said, “and I promise you, we will pursue any and all remedies available under the law. Please leave.”
“Yeah, right,” said the woman narrating the video.
Democrat Violence Broken Up By Cops At Nevada Convention
“Leave in an orderly fashion” or risk arrest Democrats were told after the fighting had been broken up by cops rushed to the scene.
The Las Vegas Sun reports:
Several dozen Sanders supporters flocked to the front of the convention room, shouting “this is fixed” and “no confidence” at party officials leading the convention after the vote. Others hurled insults specifically aimed at party leadership.
One woman in the front row on the Clinton side of the room and wearing a Clinton T-shirt yelled “call the police!” and “arrest them!” at the crowd of Sanders supporters.
