It isn’t unusual for a liberal anti-Trump rioter to do something violent and/or stupid enough to end up in handcuffs. However, when that rioter is the son of the 2016 Democrat vice presidential candidate, that’s an incarcerated horse of a different color.
According to Fox News, Linwood Michael Kaine is the 24-year-old son of former vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia. Linwood — otherwise known as “Woody” — found himself in the Ramsey County jail in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Saturday after he was arrested on suspicion of second-degree riot.
Kaine was a counter-protester at a “March 4 Trump” event at the Minnesota State Capitol. He was one of six people arrested when the anti-Trump forces clashed with pro-Trump ralliers.
Kaine was with four others seen lighting fireworks inside the Capitol, St. Paul police spokesman Steve Linders said. The group then fled the scene.
The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported that Kaine, who was wearing a mask and dressed in black, apparently broke free from cops when he was first detained and then had to be subdued by three officers, who used pepper spray and a “knee strike” to detain him. Antifa-tastic!
Spokesman Linders confirmed that “some force” had to be used in order to subdue Kaine, who is a Minneapolis resident. That sounds an awful lot like the textbook definition of resisting arrest, but Kaine was released Tuesday without charges being filed. The St. Paul city attorney was apparently reviewing the incident.
Footage from the event showed a large number of demonstrators in masks, I’m sure because it was cold. Hilariously, in the midst of a masked crowd (several of whose members would eventually be arrested), someone was holding up a sign that says “Love Trumps Hate.” I think the irony was lost on them.
“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne, said in a statement. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
Really now, senator? I can think of a few police officers who might disagree — maybe even with “some force.”
