Uncategorized

The son of House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark was arrested in Boston on Saturday night after allegedly painting anti-police slogans on a monument and then assaulting an officer while being taken into custody.

According to a Boston police news release Sunday, 23-year-old Jared Dowell of Melrose, Massachusetts, was arrested during an anti-police protest.

Clark has described Dowell as “non-binary,” and in a tweet Sunday, she referred to him as “Riley” and “my daughter.” The establishment media also described Dowell as Clark’s daughter.

“I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting,” the Massachusetts congresswoman said. “This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.”

According to the police news release, the incident took place near the Parkman Bandstand Monument on the historic urban greenspace at about 9:30 p.m. on Saturday.

They said Powell was defacing the monument by spray-painting “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB,” which stands for “All Cops Are Bastards.”

As Dowell was being arrested, “a group of about 20 protesters began to surround officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street causing traffic to come to a standstill,” the release said.
