via The Daily Wire: At least one man has been charged after a group of United States Marine Corps reservists in Philadelphia were maced, assaulted, and called “Nazis” and “white supremacists” by a group of Antifa members earlier this month. Antifa is a far-left, violent activist group which purports to be “anti-fascist.”
Last week, Tom Keenan, a 33-year-old man believed to be a member of the Antifa movement in Philadelphia, turned himself over to police in connection with the attack.
“On Saturday, November 15, 2018, at approximately 3:20 pm, the complainants, who are United States Military Reservists, were on the 100 block of S. Front Street, when they were approached by numerous males and females,” said the Philadelphia Police Department. “The group of suspects called the complainants ‘Nazis’, and ‘White Supremacists’. The suspects then maced the complainants, and then proceeded to punch and kick them. During the assault, one of the complainant’s had his cell phone stolen from him by one of the male suspects.”
The Marines were attacked down the road from a “We the People” rally, though it’s unclear if they were associated with the rally at all.
According to Philadelphia Magazine, Kennan has been charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threats, two counts of simple assault, and two counts of reckless endangerment.
“In 2007, Keenan was arrested as one of the so-called ‘Love Park 4’ after an incident involving a purported Ku Klux Klan rally in the well-known park near City Hall,” reports the magazine. “He was charged with criminal conspiracy, institutional vandalism, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief, among other offenses, and eventually made a plea deal, pleading guilty to one summary offense of disorderly conduct, while all other charges were withdrawn.”
The Antifa member has since been released on bail and is expected back at court for a preliminary hearing on December 6.
The Philadelphia Police Department is reportedly still investigating the case and looking into other suspects.
Clearly, this guy is guilty.
Hopefully they throw the book at him.
Even if they do, you can bet the media won’t report it.
