Linwood Michael “Woody” Kaine, son of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate Tim Kaine, resisted arrest by St. Paul police while they tried taking him into custody on suspicion of second-degree riot while protesting at the #March4Trump pro-President Trump rally.
The story also says that Woody Kaine ran from the police, resisted arrest, and even “squared off” with one of the arresting police officers, as though Kaine was going to physically fight /assault the officers.
Police approached them at a park near the Capitol, identified themselves as officers and the people ran in different directions, but officers caught up with them, according to Linders.
An officer ordered a man, later identified as Linwood Kaine, to get on the ground. He refused, Linders said.
“The officer was able to get ahold of Mr. Kaine, but he got up, squared off with the officer and the officer tried to take him to the ground again,” Linders said Wednesday. Another officer arrived and sprayed a chemical irritant toward Kaine.
“He then was taken to the ground, but continued to resist, at which point another officer deployed a knee strike to get him to cooperate with the officers and put his hands behind his back,” Linders continued. “After the strike, Mr. Kaine cooperated and was taken into custody without further incident.”
Tim Kaine responded to his son’s arrest by saying “We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
So, Woody Kaine resisted arrest, fought with the police, and had to be forcefully subdued, and Tim Kaine responds by basically saying that he was proud of his son for fighting with the police. WOW what total fucking losers!!
The youngest son of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate, was one of six people arrested Saturday after counter-protesters disrupted a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol.
Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, and four others were arrested on suspicion of second-degree riot after the “March 4 Trump” rally in St. Paul; a sixth person was cited for disorderly conduct. Counter-protesters clashed with Trump supporters in the Capitol rotunda after they disrupted the proceedings with air horns, whistles and chants. At one point, someone set off a smoke bomb.
Linwood Kaine, a Minneapolis resident who attended Carleton College and goes by Woody, was released from the Ramsey County jail on Tuesday morning pending further investigation, law enforcement officials said.
