Joseph Lino Padilla

Padilla attempted to push through police barricade and was beaten by police. He moved away and helped others use a large wheeled sign as a battering ram against police. He allegedly threw a flag pole at police as the situation escalated.

He wrote on social media: “as a first-hand observer or every point of last night, that it was not Antifa. They were Patriots who were trying to restore the Republic after being attacked by cops, and who struck first.”

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