Cara Maureen Hentschel

Hentschel posted photos of herself at the Capitol on Jan. 6th. One of her threads said: ““The WASHINGTON DC POLICE DEPT murdered an UNARMED woman tonight! The media seems to keep leaving out the fact that it was the COPS who did that.”

Hentschel shared personal opinions and documented the event. However, she doesn’t appear to have engaged in violence.


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