Police assault protestors and journalists in Dallas

Dallas County sheriffs rough up Alex Jones Infowars crew after JFK ceremony Photo: Infowars

WASHINGTON, November 22, 2013 — A fast-moving wall of law enforcement officers assaulted a group of protesters and journalists led by Alex Jones of Infowars inside the perimeter of Dealey Plaza in Dallas shortly after the city’s official memorial of the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

The mêlée began around 1:45 p.m., shortly after Jones, with the assistance of a bullhorn, spoke out against the mainstream media and the government’s official story about the assassination of JFK.

“It was definitely the Feds” leading the Dallas County sheriffs, said Jones after the chaos subsided, “We’re going to get lawyers, we are going to sue them.”

Jones said he was punched in the stomach during the police assault.

Initial witness accounts suggest that the Dallas County Sherriff’s Department and not the Dallas Police Department was the agency directly involved in the scuffle. Jones maintains that Dallas Police allowed the group to move into the area.

Some officers pushed and shoved the protesters and journalists, while other officers behind them brought in movable metal barricades.

Infowars and Storyleak correspondent Anthony Gucciardi stated during the continuing internet livestream of the event that the sheriff’s department deputies came from the direction of homeland security fusion center command vehicle.

It remains unclear exactly what happened, but numerous video cameras and cell phones likely captured the violence.

“I was scared, I was scared I was going to fall down” said a young boy interviewed by Jones.

Jones claimed earlier during the broadcast that he came to Dallas to protest efforts by Mayor Mike Rawlings to suppress free speech in the area.

Jones attempted to make a report to a Dallas police officer concerning the incident but was stonewalled by the officer who quickly walked away.
