The supposed “ring leader” of the group that attacked the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square, in front of the White House, has been arrested.

According to Fox News:

Federal law enforcement officials on Thursday arrested a man in Washington they call a “ringleader” in the recent attempt to destroy the Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette Square near the White House.

Law enforcement sources tell Fox News that Jason Charter was arrested at his residence Thursday morning, without incident, and charged with destruction of federal property. These sources add that Charter has connections to Antifa and was in a leadership role on the night of June 22 when a large group of protesters tried to pull down the statue.

“They were very organized,” a federal law enforcement official said. “Charter was on top of the statue and directing people … they had acid, chisels, straps and a human chain preventing police from getting to the statue.”

Protesters say the Andrew Jackson statue is offensive because he was a slave owner and because of his treatment of Native Americans.

The arrests come after an executive order was signed by Trump in an attempt to protect monuments.

As they say, Lock them up!!!! Every one of them. There is a peaceful way to handle every situation. And if these jerks want to be lawless then they can be put in the category “they fought the law and….the law won”. We need more and more arrests till the blockheads get it through their skulls that destroying government momuments will not be permitted in any way or form.

And arrest his parents too! Make them good and mad at their son so next time they’ll keep him locked up instead of out running around destroying our statues and monuments! If He’s going to act like a spoiled little boy, then he needs to be disciplined first by his parents, then by the law. Hey! You are never too old to learn!

Decisions to remove public statues and/or monuments must be made as a result of the vote of the public, not by an angry, biased mob.

The statues stay. Voting on teardown would be Blue States dream. These statues mark a memorial of the past. They want to erase history. The Civil War wasn’t just about slavery. It was about constitutional freedoms. The North won. He who is without sin can cast the first stone. Slavery was ended. What’s the beef? Is someone suggesting slavery again? You bet they are, and they’re the meat behind the movement of Rioting Marxist Agitators.
Tribalism in Africa caused the black slave trade. The tribes who won their wars would sell their enemies into slavery. No-one is innocent. The English brought in slaves. Cuba brought in slaves. Puerto Rico brought in slaves.
Christopher Columbus was NOT a slave owner. They’re not going to stop until they’re forced to stop.

This is truly great news! Now, let’s give him an American’s “right to a speedy trial” and send his little domestic terrorist behind to prison with a maximum sentence of Ten Years, maybe more if they have evidence of additional crimes which hopefully they will and he has probably committed!
God bless America and all patriots!

Jason Charter now and throughout history will be remembered for what he did. Seems a competition between who’s less remarkable but more memorable. Due to Tennessee law, Jackson was unable to grant affected Native Americans self rule. So he granted them lands history labeled Indian Territory. In those lands, they were able to live as their forefathers did. Jackson has since been relentlessly besmirched. I wonder what Jason Charter would have done.

Mass arrests need to be made. This should bring heightened intense study of exactly how and who propagandized these people over a period of time to hate their home country and believe criminal rioting is fine. NEA sounds like a very likely source for this brainwashing garbage pumped into recent generations of OUR children.

These BLM SOROS rioters want to engage in a civil war to tear down all statues of” slave owners”. They don’t know history well enough, and are tearing down abolitionists too. Our history should not be erased. Thought this was about George Floyd. Turns out to be a leftist Marxist call to arms. Sorry but Rednecks would win. The” Insurrection Act” should be called to keep peace and order. George Soros is behind this whole fiasco. Why didn’t they make these demands in 2008 to 2016? Obama never demanded statutes be torn down, but he was the one who indirectly got the BLM organized. Antifa is another Marxist Front Group. We’re fighting for our lives people. They’ve stirred up the extremists. Nothing will change unless military squashes it NOW. They won’t stop until they”ve destroyed our Republic and our Religious Freedom.

These Terrorist thugs are being charged under U.S.C. 18. This carries a $250,000,00 and/or 10 years in Prison penalty. They should receive the max and go to a real F.C.I.. They do not deserve to go to an F.P.C. which is for first time white collar criminals, better known as Club Fed. They should be placed in a behind the double of razor wire covered ten foot high hurricane fence with armed officers on patrol real live prison. These Twinkies will be crying to go back to Mommy and Daddy’s basement after the first twenty four hours. They should be assigned to clean the unit showers and toilet facilities, maybe it will give them a better respect of government property.

Well they can’t hire or rent vans to block highways or transport bricks, frozen water or cement milk shakes. This is a very good start. Arrest them. Enough hiding behind the mask of racism. Blacks are disgusted by this behavior. Not by attacking but infiltrating, is the communist manifesto, the Chinese communists have adopted mentality since Nixon, however, this is the first time it is being done on a world wide scale. CBS reported today with a “previous“ security advisor, (wonder why he is previous), and Susan Rice, (by the book, no that is buy the book) we don’t need a decisive president, inferring our president Trump. Therefore endorsing the criminally corrupt Clinton’s and the aging mentally incompetent (as well) corrupt Joseph Biden. Again CBS inferred Russian hacking to elect Donald Trump, who we all know is Putin’s absolute worse nightmare. Obviously Putin wants Biden/Clinton corruption in the WH. Our media lies. The lies are so blatant. They have the platform. They repeat the lies. Power comes from repeating refuted lies. CBS brought in a student from slave owner/ slave trader college a YALE SCHOOL,OF SLAVE TRADING to give its well indoctriated opinion.
