Capitol Police: Anti-Israel DNC Protesters “moved dumpsters in front of the exits, pepper sprayed our officers and attempted to pick up the bike rack”
Mostly peaceful? “24-year old Ruben Arthur Camacho of Woodbridge, NY, was arrested for Assault on a Police Officer after an officer witnessed Camacho slam another officer into a garage door and then punch the female officer in the face.”
After unhinged leftists attempted to breach the DNC headquarters in Washington, DC on Wednesday night, lots of people are wondering if we’re going to see any sort of investigation on par with what came after January 6th. No one is holding their breath, however.
The Capitol Police released this statement:
USCP Statement on the Unlawful Demonstration outside the DNC
Last night approximately 200 people gathered in front of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters to protest the conflict in the Middle East.
We have handled hundreds of peaceful protests, but last night’s group was not peaceful. The crowd failed to obey our lawful orders to move back from the DNC, where Members of Congress were in the building.
When the group moved dumpsters in front of the exits, pepper sprayed our officers and attempted to pick up the bike rack, our teams quickly introduced consequences – pulling people off the building, pushing them back, and clearing them from the area, so we could safely evacuate the Members and staff.
Six officers were treated for injuries, from minor cuts to being pepper sprayed to being punched.
24-year old Ruben Arthur Camacho of Woodbridge, NY, was arrested for Assault on a Police Officer after an officer witnessed Camacho slam another officer into a garage door and then punch the female officer in the face.
Last night our team was quick, decisive, courageous and in control.
When demonstrations cross the line into illegal activity it is our responsibility to maintain order and ensure people’s safety.
Bonchie of RedState says what many of us are thinking:
Let’s go over what’s admitted in that statement and then the final result. The USCP admits that the entire group of protesters helped foment of a violent riot in which numbers of them attempted to illegally block the exit of the DNC while members of Congress were trapped inside. The USCP also admits that the rioters refused to disperse when given a lawful command to do so. Lastly, the USCP admits that six officers were injured.
With all that in mind, the USCP made one arrest.
Keep in mind, this is the same law enforcement agency that helped track down every single person who was present on January 6th, including those who did nothing but meander around on the balcony taking selfies, not even knowing what was really happening. But when it comes to left-wing rioters endangering members of Congress, trespassing, and trying to storm a building as part of an attempt at political terrorism, only one person gets arrested.
Is there any better illustration of the two-tiered justice system?
One Democrat lawmaker said it was scarier than January 6th.
Breitbart News reported:
Lawmakers were evacuated from the headquarters and U.S. House office buildings were locked down due to the event, with one Democrat lawmaker telling Axios it “scared me more than January 6,” recounting that they were about to leave and return to the Capitol when police told them not to exit.
“Someone sent out word for people to come [back] and police said it’s not safe,” the lawmaker said. “Police were wearing gas masks … this was not peaceful.”
