A video of a motorist driving his crowd through a group of pro-illegal immigration union protesters on Thursday is making waves in the media.

CBS news describes the video as “dramatic.” But the video might not be all it’s cracked up to be.

Decide for oneself:

The Brea Police Department stated that none of the demonstrators sought first aid treatment, even as CBS reported that the car rolled “slowly” through the protest, before being rightly halted by police.

Even so, the union backing the immigration protest, the SEIU United Service Workers West, later claimed that six people were hospitalized for “evaluation.” The union’s president, David Huerta, stated that the members were apparent victims of “a deliberate and hateful crime.”

Furthermore, the police dispute the characterization.

“I think he was trying to get through the crowd,” Lt. Adam Hawley told the Associated Press. “We don’t have any indication he was trying to harm somebody.”

Daniel Wenzek, the 56-year-old  driver, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, but was later released.

It’s just another case of the public sector union SEIU attempting to gin up support for its cause by framing its opponents as hateful and violent. Fortunately, the police were there to set the record straight.
