(AmericanProsperity.com) – On August 8, 2020 a group of protestors surrounded Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife. Eventually, a member of the protesting group attempted to attack the couple, punching a police officer who was protecting them. Originally charged with assaulting an officer, the man is now getting off the hook.

Brennen Sermon, who was 27 at the time of the alleged attack, will no longer have to worry about receiving repercussions for his poor choices as D.C. suddenly dropped his charges. Yahoo! News reported Sermon received a notice of Nolle prosequi, a Latin legal term essentially telling the defendant that the plaintiff or prosecutor has abandoned the case, on January 27, 2022.
Senator Paul wasn’t happy to hear the news as he took to Twitter to express his dismay.
Surprise, surprise. DC government drops charges against the thug who attacked and injured a DC policeman (a policeman who protected Kelley and I from an angry mob). And people wonder why violence is consuming our cities.

Is there potentially a political motive behind not prosecuting Sermon? Would D.C. have dropped the case and charges if the defendant were a Republican, or if the victim were a Democrat?
Do Senator Paul and the police officer who was protecting him not deserve justice? Paul has a right to be upset, claiming this is why America’s cities have a violence problem. Certainly, the lax policies Democrats are implementing across the nation aren’t helping matters.
