Donald Trump

Free Assembly and the First Verdicts from the Trump Inauguration Mass-Arrests

While Donald Trump was being sworn in as president, a small group of protesters took their anger out on K Street property, broke bank windows, and set fire to trashcans and a limo. Law enforcement arrested them... along with hundreds of innocent bystanders, peaceful protesters, human rights observers, and journalists. The charges included rioting, property destruction, and felonies that would leave many in prison for decades.

20 plead guilty. Charges were dropped against another 20. 166 cases went to trial. Few had anything to do with the destructive behavior.
