ANAHEIM, CA – In advance of today’s scheduled political rally by Presidential Candidate Donald Trump at the Anaheim Convention Center, Police Chief Raul Quezada warns protestors there is no room for violence in Anaheim. “While we recognize and respect the First Amendment rights of all individuals to express their viewpoints and protest peacefully, we will not tolerate violence or disobedience of the law during the upcoming rally in Anaheim.” Quezada added, “Everyone has the right to participate without fear of violence or disorder, and we are prepared to take swift and decisive enforcement action should it become necessary.”
As a reminder, protestors are prohibited from blocking sidewalks, interfering with vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and directly advocating violence or imminent lawless activity. Engaging in said behavior may be grounds for the declaration of an unlawful assembly and the arrest of those involved.
