Phoenix to hire outside firm to review police performance during Trump rally

Someone in the crowd dispersed tear gas in the area the first gas dispersed was from someone in the crowd and not from officers according to police

George Gigicos has been removed as Donald Trump's rally organizer, Bloomberg reports claiming that the US President was allegedly upset at the crowd size and TV coverage during last week's rally at Phoenix, Arizona.

Phoenix City Manager Ed Zuercher (ZUR'-ker) wants the city to hire a consulting firm to conduct an independent review of the police response to protests that turned unruly after President Donald Trump's August 22 rally.

Trump is known to brag about his crowds, but later video showed that the crowd was even smaller in real life which angered the president who had boasted that 15,000 attendees had showed up - far fewer than local media reported. (He also said, "There aren't too many people outside protesting", when, in fact, there were many, many, many people outside protesting).

Four people were arrested during protests after the rally.

The suspension was meant to last for one month, with Uber initially filing a motion for reconsideration, which was denied by the LTFRB.

According to Bloomberg, Trump dispatched his personal bodyguard Keith Schiller to tell Gigicos that he was barred from organizing future rallies for the president.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Trump was "displeased" by the emptiness of the rally venue when he first arrived - and even though the crowd eventually filled in much of the space, Trump chose to dismiss George Gigicos, the man responsible for all of his campaign rallies. What's more, the Washington Post reported that the crowd size continued to thin as people lost interest while the president ranted and raved.

"The performance of our police department was on view for the world, and I thought they did an outstanding job", said City Manager Ed Zuercher.
