WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump portrays the hundreds of people arrested nationwide in protests against racial injustice as violent urban left-wing radicals. But an Associated Press review of thousands of pages of court documents tell a different story.
Very few of those charged appear to be affiliated with highly organized extremist groups, and many are young suburban adults from the very neighborhoods Trump vows to protect from the violence in his reelection push to win support from the suburbs.

Defense attorneys and civil rights activists are questioning why the Department of Justice has taken on cases to begin with. They say most belong in state court, where defendants typically get much lighter sentences.
More fake news as told by the guy who Veritas interviewed said would happen.
Very few of those charged appear to be affiliated with highly organized extremist groups...
Non-affiliated kids in it for the Soros money, eh?
Yeah, they want to say Antifa is just an idea, not something they’re members of. That would be the hidden lie.
P*ss on my leg and tell me its raining.
An AP reporter is going to look at thousands of documents.

Same as when a terrorist pledges his allegiance to ISIS but because he wasn’t fully paid up on his dues and not carrying a membership card and not referring to it as “ISIL” it “Didn’t count”.
Burn down my house and tell me “its not extremist radicals”.
So anarchists getting free Google Play cards from George Soros...what difference does it make?
AP found the common strain among them was not politics but stupidity, much like its journalists.
The left wing radicals instigate the trouble and then step back and watch as idealistic stupid youth step in and get in the line of fire.
It’s all well organized, with the organizers well trained in how to avoid getting themselves arrested or injured. These tactics have been used by radicals for over a century.
A distinction without a difference.
AssPress denies that Communist groups have been behind the “protests movements” we’ve seen for the past 20 years.
No matter how many flags, Che and Marx shirts, radical literature, etc. are present, they rarely make the news photos and never make the print text.
Much of Antifa’s strategy is to induce otherwise unaffiliated people to join & perform the rioting. Sure they’re not “leftist radicals”, they’re just locals who got caught up in the festivities. Organizers & facilitators ensure they themselves are not actually targeted for arrest, and have means to get out quickly if arrested. So yeah they’re, on the whole, just local yutes - aka useful idiots - protesting/rioting.
The “honchos” watch from the sidelines while their “cannon fodder” mind-numbed robots are the ones getting arrested.
The generals sit on their white horses on the hilltop, watching through binoculars while the grunts are bayoneting one another down on the plains.
The police need to learn tactics and “cut the head off of the Snake” by locating and arresting the Antifa/BLM leadership.
You gotta love how the AP is siding with criminals. Nobody gives a damn if arsonists and looters are highly-organized. The store owners whose property has been destroyed, and the insurance companies whose loss rates have skyrocketed certainly don’t. The reason federal charges have been levied is simple - local Dem pols are releasing these criminals so they can continue their destructive ways.
Surprise, surprise. Very, very surprising such a claim would be made by AP! I am shocked and stunned AP would try to fool people into believing such a lie. This is going to make me distrust the MSM I tell ya.
