Anti-Trump protester on the ground after spitting in the face of the police officer


An anti-Trump protester was arrested and charged in New York after spitting in the face of a police officer as protesters gathered in cities across the country. The outcome of the presidential election was still uncertain.

Devina Singh, 24, was filmed at a Manhattan officer Wednesday night yelling "F *** you Fascist" before spitting in his face despite the risk of coronavirus infecting him.

She could also be heard screaming, "… damned for it," although the beginning of the sentence was incomprehensible. After spat on the officer, she was thrown to the ground and arrested.

She was one of more than 50 people arrested during a night of rioting in New York.

Singh, of Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, has been charged with obstruction of government administration and harassment.

The footage of her spitting on the officer, which went viral on Twitter, was immediately condemned by the NYPD and police unions.

& # 39; Actions like this will not be tolerated. Agitators who commit these acts will be arrested, ”the NYPD tweeted alongside the video.

NYPD Detectives Union The Detectives & # 39; Endowment Association added: & # 39; This despicable behavior will not be tolerated! This after setting fires and destroying property. We know law-abiding New Yorkers don't want their cops to be treated like this. Now we need every elected official to publicly condemn it. & # 39;

Officers said Singh had previous arrests for unlawful gathering and resisting the arrest.

Police said the riot began Wednesday night with peaceful demonstrations urging officials to "count every vote" in the presidential election after Trump sued to stop counting votes in key swing states where he was losing could.

The NYPD said as day turned to night the protest was "kidnapped" by aggressive groups who lit fires before skirmishing with officers and throwing trash and eggs at them.

More than 24 hours after the polls were completed, it is still not clear who won the election. A number of battlefield states are still counting and pulling out a record number of postal ballot papers.

Joe Biden is on the verge of victory, but Donald Trump has faced a number of legal challenges to halt the counting of votes in states where he threatens to lose on unfounded allegations of fraud.

This has spurred pro-Trump supporters to stop off at polling stations in key states like Michigan and Arizona to monitor counts, while anti-Trump protesters gather in Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, New York and other Democratic strongholds gathered to demand that each vote be counted.

There has not yet been widespread violence and looting as feared before Election Day, but the longer the uncertainty persists, the greater the risk. It can still take days for all votes to be counted.

Anti-Trump protesters have scheduled more than 100 events across the country between Wednesday and Saturday.

In Michigan, a battlefield state, counter-protests erupted in Detroit after dozens of Trump supporters came to a polling station to urge officials to stop counting votes.

Other protests – sometimes against the elections, sometimes against racial inequality – took place in at least half a dozen cities, including Seattle, Houston, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis and San Diego.

Protesters kicked off a day of demonstration in New York on Wednesday by marching down Manhattan's iconic thoroughfare and chanting "Every Voice Counts" and "Every Voice Counts".

Other groups also met for rallies in Washington Square Park in the village of Greenwich, where riot police officers were in force.

"It is very important that we make sure that our democracy is preserved," said Meira Harris, 26, a social work student. "This election caused so much fear."

However, the peaceful protests took a violent turn at nightfall after cries in support of democracy turned into rhetoric against the police and members of other groups started setting fires in the streets.

In the West Village, officials clashed with activists as they moved on crowds during a rally on Leroy Street and Seventh Avenue.

Footage shared on social media by a New York Post journalist showed a woman spitting on a police officer, resulting in another skirmish between activists and police.

The woman, who was later identified as Devina Singh, 24, was heard berating the officer and telling him, "Fuck you, fascist" before spraying him with her saliva. The officer again pushed her against a building before handcuffing her.

Police later responded to the incident in a statement on Twitter: “Actions like this will not be tolerated. Agitators who commit these acts will be arrested. & # 39;

The footage also showed officers using persistent crowd control tactics, including kettling by approaching large groups before making multiple arrests.

More than 50 people were arrested during the protests on Wednesday evening, from which authorities also recovered several weapons, including knives, a stun gun and M80 explosives, the NYPD said.

“We appreciate and value the importance of freedom of expression. Our top priority is and will remain safety. We arrested more than 20 people who tried to hijack a peaceful protest by lighting fires, throwing rubbish and eggs in Manhattan, ”the department said in a statement.

Authorities did not disclose whether the fires were lit by protesters, and not all participants who participated in Wednesday's rallies were part of the Protect the Results coalition.

A second group from the & # 39; Everybody Out & # 39; movement was among those who gathered in the chaos in Washington Square Park on Wednesday.

According to social media posts, the organization had planned a protest against one of the two governments and promised to gather every week until the inauguration day.

"No matter what happens on election day, we will assemble this Wednesday and every Wednesday until January 20 until the fall of the regime," says the group's event flyer.

One participant also said police had been just as rough with some peaceful protesters, adding that he was hit in the head with a baton during a confrontation that broke out on Fifth Avenue and Eighth Street.

"This is the first time the cops have been as aggressive as they are," Charles Michie, 23, told the Wall Street Journal. "Tonight they started raving and using violent violence several times."

PORTLAND / SEATTLE

The post-election chaos extended to the west coast of Seattle and Portland, which have been plagued by night-time protests against racial injustices for five months since the police murder of George Floyd.

At around 7 p.m. on Wednesday, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office rioted after demonstrators were seen smashing windows in companies during a demonstration against Trump's judicial challenges to stop vote counting in battlefield states.

All the rioting meetings were in the city center. We made 10 arrests, ”a Portland police spokesman told Reuters in an email.

In the interests of public safety, Governor Kate Brown activated the state national guard to help local law enforcement agencies deal with the riot, the sheriff's office said.

Brown previously said she would keep state troops, sheriff deputies and police officers under unified command in Portland until Friday to deal with the protests amid uncertainty over the presidential election winner.

The Oregon National Guard was on standby. Brown's order puts law enforcement agencies under the joint command of the Oregon State Police and the Multnomah County's Sheriff's Department, which enables those agencies to use tear gas to quell rioting if necessary.

Mayor Ted Wheeler, who is also the police commissioner, banned the use of tear gas by Portland police in early fall after worries about an overly aggressive response to the riots.

On Wednesday, protesters held signs reading "Count Every Vote" and "Keeping Hope Alive".

Suzanne Thornton, 79, said she was motivated to take part in a protest for the first time over Trump's legal challenge.

“Our president seems to be doing such a big deal and we need to clarify what the vote count is for. He doesn't seem to understand, ”said Thornton.

"I don't have much patience with him because he's such a baby and I don't see how many people in this country see him as a leader."

Protesters in Seattle said they were also trying to ensure that the Black Lives Matter movement and other social justice continued to be in the spotlight. Some carried signs saying "Stop Trump's Suppression of Racist Voters", "Black Lives Matter" and "Don't Steal the Election".

LOS ANGELES

In Los Angeles, the LAPD declared an illegal gathering on Wednesday during a protest on 5th Street and Hill Street.

Officials ordered protesters to disperse after closing the area because of a "large and unruly crowd".

A total of three people were arrested, including two for non-scatter and one for an officer's battery, Fox reported 11.

Authorities did not disclose the nature of the demonstration, but photos show that demonstrators also rallied to support a full vote.

It came hours after the division issued its second tactical alert in two days as it prepared for a wave of "Count Every Vote" marches across town.

The call stipulates that all officials must be on duty to “provide sufficient resources to resolve any incidents that may arise as a result of election day activities,” the department said

DETROIT

The previous Wednesday, about 100 people gathered for an interfaith event ahead of a planned march through downtown Detroit, the battlefield state of Michigan, to demand a full vote and a so-called peaceful transfer of power.

At the same time, dozens of Trump supporters came to a polling station in town to request that the vote count be suspended.

It came after the president alleged without evidence that postal ballot papers in states like Michigan had fraudulently favored opponent Joe Biden.

Trump fans showed up at the TCF Center shouting "Let's in" and "Stop the count".

Local media reported noisy scenes when Republican counters tried to enter the building, claiming they were being wrongly kept out – a claim denied by local Democrats who were also kept outside.

DETROIT: Protesters from both sides of the political divide vented their anger and frustration at the undecided presidential contest.

Previously, Trump had declared himself the winner and vowed to ask the Supreme Court to weigh the inconclusive elections.

The Republican campaign also urged officials to stop the count and urged Michigan's Democratic foreign minister to allow more inspectors in after Biden was predicted to be the state's winner.

The Detroit confrontation began just before The Associated Press announced that former Vice President Joe Biden Michigan had won.

Videos recorded by local media showed angry people gathering outside the TCF center and in the lobby. Police officers lined up to prevent them from entering the vote counting area. They sang, "Stop counting!" and "Stop the Vote!"

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, insisted that both parties and the public had access to the censuses "using a robust system of checks and balances to ensure that all ballots are counted fairly and accurately" .

Michigan has been nervous for months about fears of political violence. Anti-government protesters openly carried guns into the state capitol during the spring coronavirus restrictions protests, and six men were arrested last month for conspiracy to kidnap Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

MINNEAPOLIS

Hundreds of people were arrested in Minneapolis Wednesday night after an election protest that began in the city center ended up on a busy freeway.

The protesters got off Interstate 94 shortly before 8 p.m., blocked traffic and asked police to close the freeway in both directions.

Almost all of the 200 attendees were arrested by Minneapolis police and state troopers after they were ordered to sit on the floor for two hours while waiting for processing, the Star Tribune reported.

“Walking on the motorway is illegal and very dangerous for pedestrians and drivers. We respect everyone's right to speak up under the First Amendment, but the freeway is not a place to do so, "the Minnesota State Patrol said in a statement.

The event was reportedly scheduled ahead of election day, according to the Star Tribune.

CHICAGO

In Chicago, protesters demanding a full census marched through downtown and along a street across from Trump Tower.

A crowd of about 100 people marched north through the loop of town on Michigan Avenue while hanging up a banner that read "Every Vote Count."

The demonstrators were met with a heavy police presence, but the march remained largely peaceful.

The Protect the Results coalition, which comprised dozens of groups from planned parenting to rule of law Republicans, had announced it would organize a day of mass protests in 500 cities.

But those plans were put on hold late in the day.

The footage also showed officers using persistent crowd control methods including chaining by approaching large groups before making multiple arrests.

More than 50 people were arrested during the protests on Wednesday evening, from which authorities also recovered several weapons, including knives, a stun gun and M80 explosives, the NYPD said.

“We appreciate and value the importance of freedom of expression. Our top priority is and remains safety. We arrested more than 20 people who tried to hijack a peaceful protest by lighting fires, throwing rubbish and eggs in Manhattan, ”the department said in a statement.

Demonstrations were also seen in several other US cities on Wednesday evening as activists calling for the vote to go ahead unimpeded gathered in several cities including Portland, Atlanta, Detroit and Oakland.

The previous Wednesday, about 100 people gathered for an interfaith event ahead of a planned march through downtown Detroit in the battlefield state of Michigan to demand a full vote and a so-called peaceful transfer of power.
