When they go low, we go… set off smoke bombs. Tim Kaine’s son, Linwood “Woody” Kaine, was arrested on Saturday on charges of second-degree rioting at a peaceful rally in support of President Trump.
The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported that Kaine and four other people were arrested for rioting at a pro-Trump rally, which was attended by 400 supporters of the President.
While Trump supporters were rallying inside the state Capitol, Kaine and his associates of anti-protestors demonstrated by shouting, whistling, using air horns, and then eventually throwing a smoke bomb into the pro-Trump crowd.
The bomb hit a 61-year old woman in the head.
Security guards broke up the anti-Trumpers after that and someone sprayed chemical irritant into the crowd. Kaine was seen with four other people who were lighting fireworks inside the Capitol. It’s uncertain whether or not he was also lighting them.
When a police officer stopped Kaine, he attempted to fight but was put in custody after the cop “used force” on Woody.
No charges were filed against him or the four other people who were arrested, but St. Paul City Attorney Samuel Clark may hit the five with a misdemeanor charge.
Sen. Kaine released a statement on Tuesday night about the incident.
“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” the Senator said. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
Apparently, Woody really didn’t understand that responsibility, or if he did he decided to ignore it.
