Docs: TX Cops Refused To Stop Attack On Biden Bus

The Texas Tribune reports:

As supporters of then-President Donald Trump surrounded and harassed a Joe Biden campaign bus on a Central Texas highway last year, San Marcos police officials and 911 dispatchers fielded multiple requests for assistance from Democratic campaigners and bus passengers who said they feared for their safety from a pack of motorists, known as a “Trump Train,” allegedly driving in dangerously aggressive ways.

“San Marcos refused to help,” an amended federal lawsuit over the 2020 freeway skirmish claims. Transcribed 911 audio recordings and documents that reveal behind-the-scenes communications among law enforcement and dispatchers were included in the amended lawsuit, filed late Friday. The amended filing also states that in those audio recordings, law enforcement officers “privately laughed” and “joked about the victims and their distress.”

According to the newly-released documents, local police received multiple 911 calls from passersby who witnessed the incident.

As I reported in January, one of the organizers of the Capitol riot was also behind the attack on Biden’s bus.

At the time of incident, Sen. Marco Rubio celebrated the attack, declaring, “We love it.”

On the eve of the 2020 election, Trump declared that the FBI should not investigate the attack, saying, “Those patriots did nothing wrong.”

Trump had earlier tweeted a video of the incident, writing “We love Texas!”

Fox host Jeanine Pirro praised the attackers as “ordinary Americans taking the election into their own hands.”

The day before the attack, Trump Junior posted a Twitter video in which he said, “It’d be great if you guys would all get together, head down to McAllen and give Kamala Harris a nice Trump Train welcome.”

Then-Texas Republican Party chairman Allen West called video of the incident “fake news.”

Democratic former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, who was running for the US House and who was on the bus, is a party to the lawsuit.
