Watch as Bill Barr claims that outside agitators are infiltrating the protests, using Antifa like tactics, and it “is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting and we will enforce those laws”
It’s real and legitimate. Accountability for his death must be addressed and is being addressed through the regular process of our criminal justice system, both at the state and at the federal level.
That system is working and moving at exceptional speed.
Already initial charges have been filed by the state. That process continues to move forward and justice will be served.
Unfortunately with the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful protests are being hijacked by violent radical elements, groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda.
In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized and driven by left extremist groups using antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from outside the state to promote the violence.
We must have law and order on our streets and in our communities and it is the responsibility of the local, state leadership in the first instance to halt this violence.
The department of justice including the FBI, the U.S. Marshals, the ATF, Dea and 93 United States attorneys’ office, U.S. Attorneys’ office around the country are supporting local efforts and continue to support them and take all action necessary to enforce federal law.
In that regard, it is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting and we will enforce those laws.
