On inauguration day, over 200 protestors were arrested and with yesterday’s extra indictments, this puts the total of people charged with Felony Rioting at 217. The protestors were not (as the MSM have been trying to portray) regular protestors; they were Black bloc protestors (masked and dressed in black) who vandalized property and engaged in violent assaults.

The rioters also attacked innocent people:

Rioters also torched a limousine, which turned out to be owned by a Muslim immigrant.
Many of the protests were organized by the group #DisruptJ20, and some planned violence from the beginning.
Violence and destruction of property was not random, in fact, it was the entire objective of the protest. One protester said, “I think there should have been more violence yesterday,” The Washington Post reports.
One organizer, Tom Faison, said the methods used were considered with “nuance and intention.”
If the rioters are found guilty, each one could face up to ten years in prison.
Mayor Muriel Bowser was quoted as saying:
“We will not tolerate violence and vandalism and the destruction of our neighborhood.”
