On Jan. 6 Capitol Police started firing flash grenades and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters with US and MAGA flags.
From the video you can see the protesters are NOT on the Capitol steps and were behind barriers.
There were children and seniors in the crowd.
The protesters were NOT breaking any laws.
This was before protesters entered the US Capitol — many of them entering after police gave them the OK.
Julie Kelly from American Greatness released a second video from Jan. 6 protests in Washington DC.
In a clip obtained by American Greatness, peaceful protestors on the west side of the Capitol building on January 6 are shown confronted by U.S. Capitol Police reportedly using flashbangs—a type of stun grenade used to disorient a target’s senses—and rubber bullets. The approximate time of the confrontation was around 1:36 p.m.
The man speaking in the video is Kash Kelly, a former gang member and founder of the Streetlights Unity Movement and Foundation, a group he launched in 2020 in opposition to Black Lives Matters to help at-risk people in inner-cities, Kelly told me during a brief interview from a Washington, D.C. jail Thursday afternoon. He was an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump.
“The police started shooting at people,” Kelly told me. “There were kids in the crowd.”
