After the arrest of 234 people charged for rioting during President Trump’s inauguration, without a single jury conviction, D.C.’s police chief suggests the District rejigger its rioting law.
Twelve of the 214 charged with rioting in D.C. on Inauguration Day appeared before a judge on Friday — after a grand jury added more charges. One pleaded guilty.
The large crowds are gone, but visible damage remains following riots that broke out in downtown D.C. during Inauguration Day protests last week. All told, police arrested 230 people who have been charged with rioting.
