“230 people were mass arrested during demonstrations against Donald Trump’s Inauguration. The arrests were made by use of a “kettle” technique on the corners of 12th and L Streets, after no orders to disperse. 214 of these arrestees were charged under the Federal Riot Statute. On April 27th, multiple additional felony charges were added. One trial group was acquitted of all charges, and the Attorney’s Office dropped charges against an additional 129 defendants on January 18, 2018. There are still 59 people who are being prosecuted with multiple felonies and face up to 60 years in prison.”
