I'm delighted to see that over 200 allegedly violent and/or otherwise criminal protesters have been indicted for their actions at demonstrations during President Trump's inauguration.
Called out for individual acts of vandalism, violence and destruction, prosecutors alleged Tuesday that 214 protesters engaged in "black bloc" tactics on Jan. 20 during President Donald Trump's swearing-in, causing damage to vehicles and property. Six police officers were also hurt during the riots as they exchanged flash-bang explosives with protesters hurling rocks and firecrackers at them.
. . .
"Black bloc" protest tactics, which have been used by some protesters for decades, include dressing in black or dark colored clothing while concealing one's face using scarves, masks and sunglasses. Some of the protesters brought with them hammers, crowbars, bricks, rocks, flares and firecrackers.
There's more at the link.
Earlier, alternative news site gotnews.com published the full list of all those arrested during the demonstrations. I understand some were journalists caught up in the situation, but most will be among those charged today.
I'll be very interested indeed to see whether, and how many, of these people were also active (and violent) in other protests around the country. One allegedly complained on social media about being abandoned by organizers and paymasters after being arrested (EDITED TO ADD: You can read it here - thanks, Capt. Tightpants!). 'Useful idiots' is a phrase that comes to mind . . .
