Violent Protesters Demand Antifa Rioters Released from Jail

Violent protesters gathered outside a Washington jail and demanded that Antifa rioters be released from jail, according to Fox News.

A video shared on social media showed police spraying what appears to be pepper spray at protesters gathered outside the entrance to a jail.

“All Out DC,” a group that describes itself as a “collective of DC antifascist activists” announced on Twitter a show of support for the jailed protesters, scheduled to meet on Tuesday

 

The confrontation comes after violence broke out in the streets of Washington DC after groups of Proud Boys clashed with Antifa rioters in the aftermath of two pro-Trump rallies. Police repeatedly forced them apart amid reports of fights and stabbings.

At least 4 people were stabbed outside a bar, which allegedly served as a gathering spot for the Proud Boys. Four people were taken to the hospital with stab wounds with potentially life-threatening injuries. Police said 23 people were arrested.

It wasn’t immediately clear which groups the attackers and victims were affiliated with.
