Not a chance. Many of them probably have pigment protection. Others have ideology protection.

Bet you dollars to doughnuts Bin Hiden INC. completely ignores the optics on this one. If they let them go it just pisses off voters that hate em anyway but if the hold them they tick off some of their base. Since they have ,not an ounce, of character in the whole bunch you can bet this environazis will be on the street by sunup and the FIB nor JUSTUS Dept. will be involved to any effect.

Washington Post reports police attacked with injuries resulting. Yes, will the 50 arrested be charged and held as treasonous domestic terrorist? They crossed police barricades and broke into the building. All their actions sound similar to 1/6/21 protesters.....

If it’s for climate change or any other left wing BS, it’s a protest….

They’re called “protesters” and there is no live TV coverage. Obviously they are on the left!
There will be no solitary time for any of them! In fact, they will get cabinet positions.
