Default DC Protesters released w/o bail

Judge should have imposed a cash bail and then sit back to see who actually bailed them out...Soros peeps?

Inauguration Day protests: Most arrested protesters will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors say - CBS News

WASHINGTON -- Most of the approximately 230 protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The office said most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail and must return to court in February.

A first group of 10 men appeared in Superior Court just before 3 p.m., and their lawyer entered a not guilty plea on their behalf. A judge released all of them on the condition they not get re-arrested in the District of Columbia.

Interim D.C. police chief Peter Newsham said Friday that 217 people were being charged with rioting.

The arrests took place in a four-block stretch of downtown Washington around the time of President Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.

The arrests came after some protesters created chaos. Windows of downtown businesses were smashed, and police deployed pepper spray and “sting balls” against the crowd.

The protesters were armed with crowbars and threw objects at people and businesses, destroying storefronts and damaging vehicles.

Six police officers were hurt -- three of them hit in the head with flying objects, CBS affiliate WUSA reported. According to the station, the six had minor injuries

Can someone explain to me how you get charged with a felony and then are released with no bail at all?

I wish the castle law extended to personal property not located on your property. I'd enjoy seeing the owner of that car shoot that asswipe right between the eyes. Not a single tear.

You know, I could see if they vandalized an Exxon/Mobil gas station or a Merrill-Lynch office, but the irony of this situation is that they smashed windows at a Starbucks and a McDonalds...two of the most liberal minded, progressive companies in the US.

You have more minorities working at McDonalds than you have white people. And remember Howard Schultz big "Race Together" nonsense? Bet he's re-thinking that big idea.

Good thinking there J20Disrupt douchebags.

and i am absolutely sure that if this was
'the common man' like you or i, and we had
acted like this 8 years ago when the inaugeration
was for someone whos last name wasnt trump
but rather obummer--

we would have been shot on sight, or you would
STILL be in jail-and there is NO WAY you would
have got out on a no cash bail.

and WE ALL KNOW IT. the hypocrisy is just staggering.
