Protesting Donald Trump might make you a friend of the media, but it's not going to impress the police. This week, several more individuals were arrested for violently protesting Trump's inauguration last month.
A total of 214 people have been indicted so far on felony rioting charges in connection with the Inauguration Day protests in downtown Washington.
On the morning of January 20, protests over Donald Trump's inauguration turned violent when black-clad “anti-fascist” protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police.
Officers responded by launching smoke and flash-bang devices into the street to disperse the crowds. Six police officers were injured and 230 protesters were arrested that day.
On Tuesday, a grand jury in DC charged five individuals. This was in addition to the 209 other defendants who've been indicted on rioting charges earlier this month.
These are the same protestors outlets like CNN have called “peaceful” in the past. It's just one of several lies the media have made up in order to diminish Donald Trump. But after 214 arrests, it seems pretty clear: These weren't “peaceful protesters.” They were an angry mob.
