The news just dropped and it is spreading nationwide. They have finally arrested him and millions of people are in shock. It took longer than expected, but he is now in custody and can no longer hurt others.
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department announced that they “arrested Wesley Somers, 25, on charges of felony arson, vandalism, & disorderly conduct for setting fire to Nashville’s Historic Courthouse Saturday night.”
Somers was allegedly taking part in the riots that broke out after the death of George Floyd. That night, according to Breitbart News, “28 people were arrested at or about the time of the city’s 10 p.m. curfew.”
However, authorities were unable to locate and arrest Somers until he was identified after the police department posted pictures of the incident, including at least three suspects. One of them was Somers.
The tragedy involving Floyd — who pled for his life for over eight minutes while Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck — horrified Americans nationwide, leading thousands to peacefully protest for justice.
Soon thereafter, however, groups of rioters swarmed Minneapolis and other major cities across the United States, such as Nashville. Anyone who engages in the destruction of property or violent acts does not have First Amendment protection.
