Democrat’s daughter is arrested during Antifa protest for allegedly spray painting ‘NO COP CITY’

The daughter of top Democrat Katherine Clark was arrested during an Antifa protest in Boston.

Police reportedly had Jared “Riley” Dowell spray-paint “All Cops Are Bastards” and “NO COP CITY” on a Parkman Bandstand Monument on the east side of Boston Common around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Clark, who is the House Minority Whip, addressed Dowell’s contentious arrest, calling it a “difficult time.” Dowell is non-binary.

“Last night my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts,” Clark wrote on Twitter.

“I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joys and pains of parenthood. This will be judged by the justice system and I have faith in that process.”

About 20 protesters surrounded police, while 23-year-old Dowell was arrested with some profanity through megaphones.

The protest led to traffic coming to a complete standstill as participants created a scene on the sidewalk, police said.

A protester punched an officer in the face causing him to bleed from his nose and mouth, police said.

Dowell, 23, was charged with assault by use of a dangerous weapon, destruction or injury to personal property and damage to property by graffiti.

Dowell is expected to face charges in Boston Municipal.

Earlier this month, Clark spoke out about extremism in politics while pointing the finger at the GOP during the debate over Kevin McCarthy’s nomination for Speaker of the House.

Clark took some beatings from the Republican party for insisting they didn’t support the same values ​​as the Democrats, such as equal pay for women, according to Boston. com.

She claimed that there was a rift between party leaders that hampered Congress, as McCarthy failed to garner enough votes to be elected speaker for about two weeks.

“Unable to organize, unable to govern, unable to lead,” Clark said, according to the news outlet.

“Years of blindly chasing power, courting special interests and bowing to election deniers have left the GOP in a mess.”

“Let’s look at the extremists who have taken power,” she continued.

Clark went on to call out Republican Representatives Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Matt Gaetz.

“Let’s stop the smear campaigns and tactics to turn people against us, even if my favorite president calls us and says, ‘We have to stop this.’ I think it should actually be reversed.’

About an hour after Dowell, another person was taken into custody for graffiti and resisting arrest in Boston.

Andrea Colletti, 27, was caught by officers after a short foot chase.

Colletti gave police a brief struggle before being handcuffed.

Meanwhile, Antifa protests in Atlanta turned violent on Saturday as rioters armed with explosives screamed “I can’t breathe” as they were arrested by police officers after setting cars on fire, throwing fireworks and smashing windows with hammers.

Dressed in black hoodies, ski masks and surgical face masks to obscure their identities as they committed wanton vandalism, video footage saw at least three police officers pinned to the ground as they shouted George Floyd’s last words.

However, unlike Floyd who died in May 2020 at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, those handcuffed Saturday night were able to breathe clearly and made their frantic claims audible to cameras.

The six arrested rioters have not yet been identified and their charges have not been released.
