Man arrested for shooting fireworks at police during May 30 riot
Juan A. Aviles, 46, was arraigned on two counts each of aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and riot with intent to commit felony, plus a count each of propulsion of missiles onto roadways and disorderly conduct engage in fighting.
This is my favorite part, the investigators said they identified Aviles by comparing video of him setting off the fireworks with a Facebook photo of Aviles before the riot that same day. The detective said Aviles was wearing the same clothing in both the video and Facebook photo...what a numbskull! I love it when these criminals record themselves breaking the law! I tried to find video of the incident, but I could not locate it.
I am so thankful the police are still making these arrests. What happened to our country when those riots kicked off and law enforcement became totally overwhelmed was a very frightening time. We had no idea what was going to happen to our nation and it felt like we really almost slipped into a Civil-War.
Thankfully law and order prevailed in the end, if only just barely. Now the criminals are on the run and the police are on the hunt. That is another reason why the radical Left-Wing politicians are pushing hard to decrease police funding, or “redirect the funds” as the newspeak term for defunding. They want to drop all the investigations and active cases against these looters and rioters.
In areas that still have sanity, they are slapping these rioters and looters with very harsh punishments. That is exactly what we need to be doing if we want to deter this kind of behavior in the future. The Democrats will try to pull these shenanigans again closer to the election if they have too and we need to be ready for that.
