NYPD releases mugshots of alleged rioter Clara Kraebber, comrades

 

Cops this week released a mugshot of Clara Kraebber — the wealthy Upper East Sider busted during a costly night of rioting in Manhattan last week — along with images of six of her alleged comrades.

 

Kraebber, 20 — the fire-haired daughter of an architect and a child psychiatrist — appears grim-faced in the snap, posted on the NYPD News Twitter account Tuesday evening.

 

Kraebber was busted on felony rioting and misdemeanor graffiti charges, according to police.

 

“On Friday, September 4th, these individuals were arrested for rioting during demonstrations in Manhattan,” police tweeted. “They were part of a large group breaking storefront windows. Our investigation into this incident continues.”

 

The damage during the three-hour vandalism spree extended more than 2 miles, from Foley Square up to 24th Street.

 

The protest was organized by groups calling themselves the “New Afrikan Black Panther Party” and the “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement.”

Fools can't make up their minds. They replaced him back when he made the comments about Obama, but sneakily brought him back in the middle of their whole "Stick To Sports" Maga movement (post-Trumps Kaepernick salvo), bringing on people like Will Cain to be their "I'm Not Racist But..." guy.

 

 

Now they just happen to replace Uncle Hank again, featuring Little Richard and  "Multi-ethnic" lineup of other musicians, no doubt trying to softly let down the Maga crowd. We'll see if it works lol.

Militia member says Kenosha police sought to push protesters toward them on night of deadly shootings

 

A militia member patrolling the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Aug. 25 claimed that police on the scene told him they planned to herd demonstrators toward the armed men — and then leave.

 

In a widely shared video from that fateful evening when two people were killed, Ryan Balch, who said he served a “tactical advisement role” among the armed citizens, is seen telling protesters: “Do you know what the cops told us today? They were like, ‘We’re gonna push them down by you, because you can deal with them, and then we’re going to leave.’ ”

 

It is unclear to what extent such a plan was carried out, and Balch insisted in a lengthy Facebook post the next day that the militia members “never agreed to this.” By 11:45 p.m., two protesters were shot to death and a third was wounded by a teenager from Illinois who had answered the call to take up arms and protect the city.

 

Balch makes the same allegation on a video captured minutes before the shootings. Balch tells citizen journalist Kristan T. Harris of The Rundown Live, an independent news and talk radio program: “The cops told us they were going to send them (protesters) at us and then run.”

LAW & ORDER  !!!!  🙄

To be fair, we can't really see how much glass is inside.  With that type of glass that shatters into tiny beads, I don't know how much one should expect it to fall in the direction of the impact and how much of it just kinda explodes or falls straight down.

Protesters held on $1 million bail after demonstration over Pennsylvania police shooting

 

At least seven protesters who were arrested during demonstrations over a fatal police shooting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, were held on $1 million bail Tuesday.

 

Lancaster police arrested 12 adults and a juvenile overnight Sunday when a crowd of more than 100 people gathered outside the police station to protest the shooting that day of Ricardo Munoz, who prosecutors say had run at an officer with a knife.

 

Police used pepper spray and chemical agents against demonstrators that night.

 

"Suspects piled street signs, trash cans, a metal dumpster, a metal bike rack, pieces of plywood and a wooden pallet at the intersection of N. Prince St. and W. Chestnut St," police said in a statement. "The suspects filled the dumpster with additional trash bags, as well as the wood, and set the contents on fire."

 

The adults face numerous charges, including conspiracy to commit arson, riot, failure to disperse, institutional vandalism and disorderly conduct. Court records were not immediately available for the adults Tuesday.

 

Seven of the adults were held on $1 million bond set by Magisterial District Judge Bruce Roth, and four others were still awaiting their arraignments. One of the adults was on probation at the time of his arrest.

I don't necessarily have a problem with harsh charges against violent protesters.  

 

I'm gonna be real skeptical about claims that this protester right here was actually violent.  And I'm gonna need to see them showing equal vigor against violence by all sides.
