The Democrats belatedly pivoted away from police defunding after it became clear just how badly it tested with the public, especially its minority base, but that doesn’t mean that the Left ever pivoted away from it. Instead, the Dems and their media just went on loudly denying that they had exactly the views they do.
Their kids however helpfully remind everyone of those views. Just ask the House Dem Minority Whip.
The daughter of House Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA5) was arrested for allegedly assaulting an officer and defacing a monument in the Boston Common Saturday night.
Riley Dowell, who police identified as Jared Dowell, is facing charges of assault by means of a dangerous weapon, destruction or injury of personal property and damage of property by graffiti and tagging.
Boston Police say officers responded to the Common at approximately 9:30 p.m. for a protest. Responding officers allegedly found Dowell writing the phases of “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB” (All Cops Are B*******) in spray paint on the Parkman Bandstand Monument.
After placing Dowell under arrest, police say the group of 20 protestors surrounded the officers, and one officer was hit in the face, causing them to bleed from the nose and mouth.
On Sunday, Clark acknowledged her daughter’s arrest and provided a statement that reads:
“Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting. This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.”
And I’m confident that like most BLM rioters, especially those with connected parents, she’ll get a slap on the wrist, followed by an internship. 5 years from now she’ll be working at a nonprofit and getting ready to go into politics.
