A rioter has been arrested for his part in the assault on a DC police officer near the attacks on Rand Paul on the Thursday night after the RNC let out from the White House:
FOX 5 – D.C. police have arrested a Florida man who they say was near Senator Rand Paul last week following President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.
D.C. police were escorting the Senator, who said he was attacked by a “crazed mob” following the President’s speech.
According to the Department of Justice, Brennen Sermon, 27, of Orlando, was arraigned in D.C. Superior Court on one count of assault on a law-enforcement officer. He was released on his own recognizance.
Investigators say that, around 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 28, a D.C. officer was holding a police line at 14th and F Street, Northwest when Sermon kicked his bicycle and ran away.
When the officer chased him, Sermon allegedly punched him in the face.
The injury required stitches.
If Sermon is convicted, he could face up to 180 days in prison for each count. He could also face a fine of up to $1,000.
A maximum of 180 days is not enough for each count. Just for punching a police officer in the face alone this perp should get a year.
Yesterday AG Barr suggested that people were being flown to cities around the country to engage in rioting, so it’s no shock to find out that this perp was from Florida. He was probably flown in as well, though that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
I’m glad to know the DOJ is tracking these people flying out of state to riot and cause mayhem, but I hope they start arresting the people funding these trips. Barr affirmed it against federal law to cross state lines for the purpose of rioting. I don’t know if it is, but it should be illegal to fund someone’s trip across state lines for the purpose of rioting as well.
