Hundreds of Trump supporters and counter-protesters face off at Berkeley Freedom rally, mot enough Police

Check out the video of this report on the below put out as a live stream by WeAreChange   The videographer says there were only 20 police officers at this event that got out of hand. 
Bad job by the Berkley Police for not sending enough personnel to handle the rally.   
LA Times reports about 500 pro-Trump demonstrators and counter-protesters faced off Saturday morning at a “Patriots Day” rally in Berkeley, where the two groups have violently clashed on city streets twice in the last three months.

About 10 a.m., dozens of counter-protesters dressed in black and wearing masks tore down a plastic netting that separated the two groups in Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park. The Trump supporters moved forward with American flags and chants against “communists.”

Special ups for WeAreChange for taking this video at the scene of this event. The action goes down at about the 54 min mark of the video.  But, it's worth seeing the whole video in context to see the escalation unfold.
