Alex Kirk Harkrider

There are photos of Harkrider at the Capitol, including a photo of him stepping in and out of a broken window with a bullhorn. During the event, he posted several social media blurbs expressing opinions.

However, there are no written testimonies of him engaging in physical violence against another person.

Recently, Harkrider petitioned the court for the opportunity to serve his community in the current hurricane relief effort in Louisiana.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
