It appears that the child of Democrat House Minority Whip Katherine M. Clark has been arrested for assaulting police officers as part of an #antifa event in Boston. Jared ‘Riley’ Dowell, who was born as Jared and is now referred to by Clark as her daughter, was charged with assaulting a police officer by means of a dangerous weapon, damage of property by graffiti, and destruction or injury of personal property.
According to reports, Dowell was spray-painting anti-police slogans “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB,” which stands for “All Cops Are Bast**ds” on the Parkman Bandstand Monument when he was arrested. When police attempted to apprehend him, a group of about 20 protesters surrounded officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street, causing traffic to come to a standstill. During the altercation, a police officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.
Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting.
This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.

Despite these serious charges, Dowell has avoided jail time and instead was sentenced to only a year of probation. This light sentencing comes amid a deal with prosecutors that Dowell’s case will be dropped if all the requirements are completed, a Suffolk County Judge said on Wednesday. These requirements include 30 hours of community service, an apology letter to the officer, and paying back the city for the cost of cleaning up her graffiti.
It is concerning that a Democrat House Minority Whip’s child is engaging in such criminal behavior and that this behavior is being excused and even celebrated by some in the media. It is especially concerning that this behavior is being excused while other Americans are facing harsh punishments for similar offenses. This is yet another example of the double standard that exists between those in power and those without it. It is also concerning that Clark has been arrested for similar offenses in the past, yet her child is given a slap on the wrist.
It is important to remember that no one is above the law, regardless of their political affiliation or gender identity. We must hold everyone accountable for their actions and ensure that justice is served fairly and equally.
