Good news. These black-clad ‘anarchists’ have watched a United States for the past 8 years where the rule of law is not enforced and where rioting is passively permitted. Those days are over. The arrests and charges, btw, very well could have been a factor in the lack of anarchist violence at the women’s marches. These violent parasites stand for nothing, and appear to disrupt and destroy. Let’s keep an eye on this so there is genuine follow through and actual serious punishment.

Via CBS and AP.

Most of the approximately 230 protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The office said most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail and must return to court in February.

A first group of 10 men appeared in Superior Court just before 3 p.m., and their lawyer entered a not guilty plea on their behalf. A judge released all of them on the condition they not get re-arrested in the District of Columbia.

Interim D.C. police chief Peter Newsham said Friday that 217 people were being charged with rioting.

The arrests took place in a four-block stretch of downtown Washington around the time of President Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.

The arrests came after some protesters created chaos. Windows of downtown businesses were smashed, and police deployed pepper spray and “sting balls” against the crowd.

    Excellent news. I hope they find them guilty as charged and lock them up.

    Speaking of marches…I’ve never believed these are “spontaneous” events. There’s always big black bag money in the shadows. Well here’s a first hand report about these.

    Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

    So these “professional protestors” are funded by Soros? Isn’t that a form of racketeering? When will charges be filed against him and these groups? How pathetic! These sick people aren’t about freedom and positive change. They just want to watch the world burn.

      If it is racketeering, is it possible to use the RICO laws against Soros and take everything he (and his son) owns? Somewhere I heard that the best way to punish a rich person is to make him poor.

    The punch line is, after they get their felony convictions, they’ll lose the right to vote.

    The National Mall area is federal land, therefore federal charges. If protesters were arrested on DC land, then likely DC prosecution and misdemeanor.

  6. Maynard says:

    Here’s the really important question: If one of these violent protesters gets close enough to Trump to be a serious threat, is the Secret Service agent going to yell, “Donald, duck!”?
