ACLU Wants Special Prosecutor to Review Removal of White House Protesters

The ACLU is calling for a special prosecutor to be appointed to review the removal of protesters in front of the White House.

According to The Hill:

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) called Tuesday for an independent special prosecutor to investigate the aggressive clearing of protesters in front of the White House on June 1, an incident that immediately preceded President Trump‘s photo-op at a nearby church.

The ACLU sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr calling him and “all other officials involved” in the removal of protesters from Lafayette Square to recuse themselves from a probe into the incident and appoint a special counsel to prosecute “any federal criminal violations of protesters’ constitutional rights.”

Law enforcement officials utilized tear gas, flash bang grenades and rubber bullets to clear the square of protesters, who were demonstrating against police brutality exactly one week after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

Authorities have said some of the protesters in front of the White House were throwing bottles and other objects at officers, but reporters on the scene said they did not see escalation from protesters.

President Trump walked through the area minutes later. This timing could suggest that the backlash is political to the removal of the “protesters.”

Absolutely NO PROTESTOR should be throwing rocks or anything at police or anyone else. No protestors should be looting or destroying any property. Maybe the ACLU should protect the citizens and not those who are breaking the law. Our Constitution allows peaceful protesting. What we have seen certainly is not that. However, I do think skunk liquid should be sprayed and see how the works.

The Aclu should just shut their mouth and go away. They are anti American and don’t deserve to be listened to. As for the protesters (Criminals) on the front lawn of the White House, they shouldn’t be allowed to be there given the propensity for lawlessness. In my opinion if they don’t leave when asked the should simply be shot. What about the ACLU defending my rights?? Give that some thought.

I say screw the rubber bullets and use real ones. These thugs have been told enough times, and have seen/read enough to know they are toying with everyone and getting away with it. They do remind me of the brown shirts of the nazi party, being thugs, injuring people., all in a “peaceful protest”. BS. And the aclu can go away to another third world country. They are traitors. They should NEVER be bringing such BS and asking for an investigation. These people should be shot. THEN they will quit doing this. It’s time for a cleansing in America.

DawnieR is correct!
When an attempt to maintain a non-violent presentation is OBSTRUCTED by “protesters”, it is appropriate to
remove the disruption! It was done in a NON-LETHAL manner!
NOT A PROBLEM !!!

QUIT WHINING !!!

I like the idea of spraying them all with synthetic skunk-musk. They will RUN HOME and try to get clean (and it takes DAYS to get rid of that smell! GREAT THOUGHT.

Really? where was the ACLU when people weren’t allowed to buy seeds in Michigan. They are just another leftist organization trying to bring down President Trump. We all know the game. They have been at it for years. The communists see success in their future. Only the people and President Trump can stop them. If people don’t step up. All will be lost.

The ACLU was *founded* by communists to be a communist organization. It was intended to work insidiously to pick away at our society from the inside, to use our laws and philosophies against us.

This article is inaccurate. (AKA: a lie). No “tear gas was used to disperse the rioters. None were shot with rubber bullets. BTW: These paid rioters were “Disturbing The Peace”, preventing peaceful citizens from enjoying LaFayette Park and viewing THEIR President as he walked to St. John’s Church. People who disturb the peace like that and worse DESERVE to be detained and punished. Here, they were only shooed away. Like flies at the picnic. Gimmie a break!

ACLU is one to be dismantled. They do nothing but support domestic terrorist and lie with the biggest and best liars in the DNC. And they certainly do not help the minority communities just like the DNC insane asylum.

I think a much more appropriate task for special prosecutors would be to investigate the ACLU, their funding sources, and spending.
