David Dempsey

Dempsey allegedly attacked law enforcement with a pole and a crutch. He also tried to pepper spray officers. Before the rally, he recorded a video alone with a gallows hanging in the background. He said, among other things: “Hopefully, one day soon we really have someone hanging from one of these…”

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