You might remember how, after the last night of the RNC, Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted by a mob of protesters.
It required a team of D.C. police to surround and escort Paul and his wife to safety.
The senator admitted that without the police’s help, he and his wife might not have survived.
One man, from Florida, was arrested for assaulting an officer during the night’s commotion.
Guess what happened next?
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…
According to the Department of Justice, Brennen Sermon, 27, of Orland, was arraigned in D.C. Superior Court on one count of assault on a law-enforcement officer. He was released on his own recognizance.
Not only is it odd that the people harassing the Pauls apparently faced no consequences, but a man who assaulted a cop was released on his own recognizance.
That means he wasn’t held on bail—so there is no financial liability for him to show up for his trial.
This man crossed state lines and apparently committed a crime. Not only is that a serious offense, it means that federal law enforcement can (and should) get involved.
Yet the local D.C. court didn’t think it was worth their time to hold this man for trial.
That appears to be in keeping with D.C.’s radical leftist leaders. They have joined the ranks of other Democrat-run cities that let rioters run free and defund their police.
President Trump revealed that numerous people came from all over the country to protest outside the RNC.
He believes these people are being funded by powerful, rich Democrats—who work to keep their names a secret.
Considering this man—who was charged with assault an officer—got off scot-free, it’s hard to deny Trump’s words.
Setting this man free only encourages more violence against conservatives. Leftists continually call Trump supporters racists and bigots. Then they turn the other way when people like Sen. Paul (or everyday folks) are assaulted.
Do you think justice has been done?
- An officer was assaulted the night Rand Paul and his wife were confronted by protesters.
- The man charged with the crime was released, without bail.
- The court set him free, even though he crossed state lines and committed a crime.
