Over 100 Inauguration Day Protesters Indicted For Rioting

Legal Insurrection

Face fine up to $25,000 and maximum 10 years in prison


"Protesters at President Trump’s inauguration became violent, setting fires, vandalizing property, and antagonizing—even injuring—law enforcement officers.  The indictments of 146 additional rioters were handed down this week.

"The total of those indicted on felony rioting charges is now 209.  A total of 230 persons were arrested in conjunction with the rioting, and twelve of those cases have been dismissed.

NBC reports:
A grand jury has indicted more than 100 Inauguration Day protesters on rioting charges in Washington, D.C. In total, 209 people have now been indicted.
The indictment, handed up D.C. Superior Court on Wednesday, charged 146 additional protesters with felony rioting — meaning they face a fine of up to $25,000 and a maximum of 10 years in prison.
. . . . [F]our businesses were vandalized and sustained “significant damage,” demonstrators lighted a limousine on fire, and six police office suffered minor injuries after protesters set fires and threw rocks, bricks, trash cans and other small objects, according to Acting Police Chief Peter Newsham.
"DC police have requested that Facebook turn over social media information on the violent rioters.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia issued the subpoena to Facebook on Jan. 27, according to CityLab, a week after the official swearing-in ceremony.
