Leftists riot in DC and destroy property at Trump Inaugural (Andrew Marcus)
The double standard of justice continues.
Washington D.C. is going to pay $1.6 million in settlements to those who were arrested for rioting at Trump’s inauguration.
According to lawsuits filed protesters were arrested without cause and excessive force was used.
The city of Washington has reached a $1.6 million settlement in two lawsuits that included allegations of arrests without cause and excessive force on protestors during the inauguration of former President Donald Trump in January 2017.
The two lawsuits were brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of the District of Columbia and attorney Jefferey Light, on behalf of protesters.
The ACLU said in a statement about the settlement Monday that the lawsuit alleged that then-Police Chief Peter Newsham and more than 20 officers “engaged in or supervised constitutional violations including mass arrests of demonstrators without probable cause, unlawful conditions of confinement for detainees, and/or use of excessive force.”
The ACLU said that even though just a few protesters caused damage and engaged in violence, police rounded up more than 200 protestors and “detained them without access to food, water, or restrooms for up to 16 hours.”
Trump supporters who were at the capitol on January 6th are not getting the same treatment.
While they do nothing about the crimes committed by the deep state and radical left they are targeting every Trump supporter.
The FBI is now focusing in on a Grandmother who just walked through the U.S. Capitol!
