Proud Boys leader arrested for property destruction ahead of DC rally

Enrique Tarrio, the chairman of the Proud Boys, was arrested on Monday afternoon in Washington, DC. This came soon after Tarrio, 36, arrived in the US capital to attend rallies protesting President Donald Trump’s election defeat. The police said Tarrio was arrested and charged with destruction of property for setting fire to a Black Lives Matter banner after a Trump rally in December.

Enrique Tarrio pulled a BLM poster off the wall and burned it with a hand lighter. Enrique Tarrio, who is Afro-Cuban, is being investigated for the act being a potential "hate crime". But it is pretty obvious this is just an attempt to keep him out of the DC gathering on January 6th.

Cops literally waited for the most perfect time to inflict maximum damage on the group that worships cops. One thing is for certain. Cops are losing support from both sides and they should be very concerned where that will lead.

I guess you can't try to pull the "white nationalist narrative" unless you get rid of the non white guy leadership. Proud Boys' West Palm leader: Trump bump 'awesome;' we're not a hate group Enrique Tarrio biography: 13 things about Cuban-American leader of Proud Boys

So are we now going to start arresting everyone who has committed property destruction in the last year? Because I’ve witnessed quite a bit that went unpunished.

I'm sorry a guy burns a poster and he gets immediately imprisoned. But people attack cops, burn buildings, and try to kill people and they are praised as heros. Double standard

Burning one banner vs $1 billion-plus riot damage most expensive in insurance history

I just love how diverse the proud boys are! You will never see a white person leading the BLM movement.

And this display of authoritarianism, is why more and more Americans are viewing the police as enemies who are enforcing unconstitutional dictates and violating their oaths.

So burning buildings is ok. But burning a blm poster is hate speech when done by a African American... You could not write this level of tomfoolery if you tried

So they are arresting black men for burning fascist propaganda... in 2020?

If freedom of speech applies to burning a flag it also applies to this case.

As is typical these days the lefts response is childish and two dimensional, and the rights response is considered, but misinformed. Societies that go all the way left, or right, inevitably collapse, usually in a torrent of blood. Those that allow both, and reigns in the excesses of both, stands a rather better chance of enduring. And until we put the likes of Bezos, Gates and Buffet in prison, no one is safe.

As someone who is left wing and hates the proud boys I can say that this is over reach from the police. Now i hope some right wingers see what ACAB means.

I don't agree with him being arrested, just because of the double standards. But I also don't agree with taking some ones property and destroying it.

A great win for Proud Boys!!! A symbolic arrest... it’s the first step to stardom for the leader. It’s perhaps planned and staged. Great for press, at a national stage and for propaganda 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

so is it ok for dems/leftist/tds'ers to burn amrrican/trump/right wing flags that belong to other people, but as soon as a right wing dies it, they get arrested, corruption is highly noticable

They can't arrest antifa and BLMARXISTS for destruction of property, burning of the American flag and violence upon people but, arrest for standing up to communism. So it begins. Fyi he was not the one who burned BLM flag.

Everyone in the replies defending the Proud Boys should be truly ashamed of themselves. You are disgusting and pathetic examples of human beings
