Thin Line

A police officer leads a man to safety after he was chased by protesters against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday, June 2, 2016, in San
Jose, Calif. A group of protesters attacked Trump supporters who were leaving the presidential candidate’s rally in San Jose on Thursday night. A dozen or more
people were punched, at least one person was pelted with an egg and Trump hats grabbed from supporters were set on fire on the ground.
