Maybe this is a sign that justice will be restored. Maybe there’s a glimmer of hope after all.
Most of the estimated 230 protesters who were arrested on Inauguration Day will face felony rioting charges, according to federal prosecutors.
Most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail on the condition that they return to court in February, CBS News reports.
If charged, the protesters could face a sentence of up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
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 around downtown Washington while President Trump was being sworn in.
Protesters burned waste canisters, threw the embers at police, and broke windows of businesses downtown.
Police used pepper spray and “sting balls” against the crowd.
Six police officers suffered minor injuries due to the protests, with three of the officers hit in the head with flying objects, WUSA reports.
The left needs to know that if they behave this way, our new president isn’t afraid to let the police do their job. Obama loved demonizing our police. He loved pitting the people against them. He allowed the hoaxing leftist media to portray the police as vicious racists who were seeking to gun down any black man they could find.
For over a year police have been afraid to do their job. They even hesitated to do their job on many occasions which might have caused who knows how many people to die because they were afraid of being accused of racism or police brutality.
Let this be a warning to rioting leftists that law and order will come back to the land and the police won’t be afraid of their false accusations. And better yet, they finally have a POTUS who’s behind them.
