After Protest Leader Blocks California Highway With 300 People – She Gets Charged With Up To 15 Years In Jail

What’s Happening:

Democrats looked the other way as “mostly peaceful protests” often grew violent, and this is one of the most concerning cases.

Across the country, Black Lives Matter staged demonstrations that often put their own people at risk. One of the common tactics was for radical activists to literally block major roads, even highways.

In some instances, people lost their lives.

Now a BLM organizer, whose group blocked the highway, is actually facing serious consequences:

Activist Tianna Arata was arrested on July 21 by the San Luis Obispo Police Department (SLOPD) in California after police said a protest she organized turned violent…

The protest, which grew to a demonstration involving approximately 300 people, got out of hand when demonstrators marched onto a highway and, at one point, launched an assault on a passenger vehicle, despite a 4-year-old child being inside…

Arata, they say, could now be facing up to 15 years in prison.

A BLM activist by the name of Tianna Arata claimed her demonstration was going to be peaceful.

Yet the group of 300 people entered the highway and even assaulted a vehicle with a 4-year-old.

The police arrested Arata, saying she was responsible for her demonstration and what actions the people took.

Despite a petition being circulated seeking the charges be dropped, she is looking at 15 years in prison.

After the death of George Floyd, activist groups including BLM and Antifa wreaked havoc across the country.

Although they said they cared about black lives, numerous lives were lost. Those include the lives of young black children.

Democrats appeared to applaud the rioting and looting, ignoring the damage. In many cities, the local leaders promised to defund police departments.

Did that end the chaos? No, it only continued.

While in some states, activists appear to have gotten off scot-free, it looks like Arata might face a penalty for what she did.

Most Americans support peaceful protesting. But few would endorse actions that put the protesters and innocent bystanders at risk.

It appears public opinion has long turned against the ongoing demonstrations. Polls reveal that approximately 81% of Americans don’t want police defunded.

Do you think this violent protester should get jail time?

Key Takeaways:

  • An activist is facing 15 years in jail after organizing a 300+ demonstration.
  • The protest got out of hand after they blocked the highway and endangered drivers.
  • Democrats have ignored the rioting, calling much of it “peaceful.”
