Over 200 Inauguration Day Protesters Face Felony Rioting Charges WIth Up to 10 Years in Jail...
Thanks to Washington, D.C.’s felony rioting statute, 230 anti-Trump protesters will face up to ten years in jail for rioting.
The protesters were arrested Friday and appeared in court Saturday, according to a BuzzFeed report. Anti-Trump protests turned violent, with black-clad rioters throwing rocks at police, smashing windows, and setting a car on fire. Police responded with stun grenades, pepper spray, tear gas, and rubber bullets.
A group called #DisruptJ20 organized most of the protests Friday and the violence was not spontaneous.
The Daily Caller reported a week before the inauguration that protesters were planning to destroy property.
