Antifa rioter Jordan Bartels who was caught on camera vandalizing a cop car over the weekend, was escorted to a Pittsburgh police station on Monday by his mom and dad.
The 20-year old anarchist was video taped smashing a police car as well as spray painting an "Antifa" logo on the side of the car.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Local law enforcement were investigating the destruction of a police SUV when they received an anonymous tip from a co-worker at Amazon who recognized Bartels at the scene of the crime, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The vehicle was set on fire after being tagged with spray paint Saturday, although police officers eventually arrived on horseback to disperse the rioters.
According to a criminal complaint and eyewitness accounts, a woman tried to stop Bartels from damaging the SUV, but he gave her the finger and proceeded to break the car’s windows.
After Bartels was identified, police executed a search warrant at his home Sunday, breaking down the front and back doors when no one responded. They found two guns, six spray paint cans and the sweatshirt worn by Bartels during the demonstration, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The 20-year-old turned himself in Monday and was escorted by his parents and an attorney. Local news reporters attempted to ask him questions but Bartels ignored them as he walked into the station. He was referred to as “antifa kid” in a Monday tweet by Jason Howerton, but any affiliation with antifa is unclear.
Bartels faces multiple felony charges including criminal mischief, institutional vandalism and riot.
On Monday, President Trump announced that he would be taking decisive action against the rioters and looters who are destroying cities across America.
“I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America,” President Trump said from Rose Garden. “I am mobilizing all federal resources civilian and military to stop the rioting and your Second Amendment rights.”
“First we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now,” the President continued. “Today I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled. If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will quickly deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”
The president said that the riots in Washington, D.C., was a “total disgrace,” and revealed he was deploying “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property.”
“We are putting everybody on warning: Our seven o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced. Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” the President continued. “I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail. This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.”
“We have one beautiful law. And once that is restored and fully restored, we will help you, we will help your business, and we will help your family,” he continued. “America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom, and our very way of life. But where there is no law, there is no opportunity. Where there is no justice, there is no liberty. Where there is no safety, there is no future.”
“We must never give in to anger or hatred. If malice or violence reigns, then none of us is free,” the President concluded. “I take these actions today with firm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country. By far, our greatest days lie ahead.”
