During last week’s melee following a San Jose Donald Trump rally, police appeared to be more of a hindrance, than they were a help when Trump supporters were chased and pummeled by protesters.
The father of a 14-year-old boy who also attended the rally told Fox News host Sean Hannity (on 6/9) that his son was beaten on the back of his head as he was running for his life.
“He had two big lumps on his head at the end of the night,” the father, identified only as “Craig” told Hannity....
He added that after his son was attacked, he managed to make it to the police line, but the officers wouldn’t allow him to check on his son.
“I tried to check on his well-being, and they wouldn’t let me through,” he said. “I kept saying, ‘That’s my son! That’s my son!’ and the guy just said, “Get back! Get back!’”
Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer who also attended the rally, confirmed Craig’s recollection of events.
There are 250 police officers lined up there. They stayed in formation and didn’t do a thing to help all the people who were being attacked,” she told Hannity.
Dhillon represents Trump supporter Rachel Casey, who was cornered by a mob of protesters at the entrance to a Marriott hotel and pelted with eggs.
“She was very frightened for her life,” Dhillon said. “She tried to get into the Marriott and they closed the doors from the inside.”
Both Craig and Dhillon related that police directed the Trump supporters to walk through the mob of protesters.
“We were directed through the mob,” Craig told Hannity. “It’s one thing to let people protest. It’s another thing to make the people go through the protest. Force them to. We weren’t allowed to go away from the protest.”
Dhillon agreed. “I’ve heard anecdotally from people who have spoken to police officers,” she said. “Right before we were directed into this mob this group of Trump supporters was thanking the police for being there.. This is a generally pro-law enforcement crowd. It’s not a knock on police in general but in this specific instance it’s shocking to see 250 of them lined up and not lifting a finger to help hundreds of victims.”"

From The Gateway Pundit interview (6/9/16) with father of boy who was beaten and forced to run for his life after Trump rally:
"TGP: Police Chief Eddie Garcia posted at Facebook a vow to seek justice for the victims of the riot using a photo of your son with a caption that claims the SJPD rescued your son. What is your comment on that?
Father: SJPD did not help my son until after he crossed the skirmish line. No one went to help him at all....
Father: I sent him a tweet that his information was false and that the boy had to save himself. The reporter promptly blocked my Twitter account."...
