First people accused of vandalism at Trumpís inauguration go on trial
Washington Examiner ^ | May 16, 2018

Four men accused of participating in a chaotic anti-capitalism march during President Trump’s inauguration went on trial Wednesday, facing possible decades behind bars for their alleged role in a window-smashing spree that ended in a mass arrest.

The men were arrested alongside about 230 other people on January 20, 2017, several blocks north of Trump’s inaugural parade route, after police cornered largely black-clad participants, journalists, and legal observers on a downtown street corner.

Three of the defendants allegedly took a direct role in vandalism, and another allegedly knew of plans for mayhem. Defense attorneys claimed mistaken identity and collective punishment during opening arguments, and said police used unnecessary violence.

Unnecessary violence—hah! I suppose breaking those windows were necessary, however.

Glad to hear this. Thanks!

“Defense attorneys claimed mistaken identity...”

Well, when you all dress and black and wear masks or bandanas across your faces, it’s hard to distinguish one window-smasher from another!

No one every said our Judicial System was PERFECT - I mean, look at the sh#t The Clinton Crime Family have gotten away with through the years!

Take it like a man, ya Snowflake!

The court and location of the trial is painfully missing or hidden in the report as well and the name and the record of the presiding judge.

Transparency?
Full disclosure? News?

Whazzat?

It’s spelled a bit differently, but isn’t a Bacillus some kind of worm, or vermin or corruption?

While I do agree they deserve some time in prison, ‘decades’ is a bit much, isn’t it?

I recall the violent rioters’ defenders excusing their vandalism of “insured businesses”.

That would be the bank, Starbucks and cafe. I saw a private limo completely burned out and remember an article trying to raise money for the guy.

I don't think justice can truly be served unless the get the bill for the damage they caused, and work it off in lieu of long jail time.

Debtors prison.

What about those vandals (terrorists) who spray-painted the clothing of Iraq/Afghan war widows as they, the war widows, tried to enter one of the inaugural balls?

Those terrorists should have been hung.

I agree. A nickel at hard labor in the federal pokey and paying for damages would seem fair to me.

Nope. I think rioters should be shot where they stand.
