A group of Pro-Chavez supporters and members of the local municipal goverment loyal to Chavez, attacked the US Ambassador's car with eggs, onions, tomatoes and verbal insults while he was fleeing (forced to leave by the attackers) a kids' baseball field in a low-income Caracas neighborhood where he was donating baseball equipment for the underpriveledge boys to practice.
In clear violation of the Vienna Convention, the local pro-Chavez police did nothing to prevent the attackers from chasing in motorcycles the US convoy for miles across Caracas's highways.
The kids's parents reject the violence and intolerance of the pro-chavez group that forced the Ambassador to flee. They can't understand why they would attack someone who is helping their children develop their baseball skills. The little leaguers are part of a kids' league in Venezuela where many famous Venezuelan Big Leaguers have played during their youth.
