A man was arrested for carrying an unlicensed pistol at the January 6th rally at the Capitol unrest in Washington DC. He also had a high capacity magazine. But, guess what? Leslie (Logan) Grimes is not a Trump supporter.
He is a transgender, BLM supporter and was raised in a very anti-Trump household. Yet, his father blames Trump for his arrest.
It will be interesting to see what the Democratic DA in DC charges him with if anything. Once they are convinced he is a Trump hater, it’s quite possible all charges will be dropped. They have already released BLM activist and leader of Utah’s Insurgency USA, John Sullivan even though he too charged the Capitol building and was inside the same as those they are charging with a crime.
According to his stepfather, Andrew Hanselman:
“He is not a Trumpster.” “Not a MAGA (Make America Great Again) person…We’re totally flabbergasted as to the charges.”
So, exactly what is the stepfather saying? That is sure what it sounds like to me. Does he believe that if you hate Trump, you should not be charged with any felonies you might commit?
But, of course, there is more to this story. According to the Detroit Free Press:
“Logan Grimes is a social justice activist who participated in Black Lives Matter, is transgender, and believes many groups have faced injustice since Trump’s election, his father said.”
“We’re a very progressive liberal family … if there’s any reason my son was even present, it’s because of his stand against what a lot of those folks who did horrible things yesterday (believe) — and I’m still sick to my stomach (from) when I saw it on TV last night.”
Robert Grimes, 54, of Cadillac says his son is not a supporter of President Donald Trump and should not be associated with those Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol building. His son keeps an eye on groups such as the Proud Boys and was there to protest the Trump faction, he said.
He also seems to somehow blame Donald Trump for the actions of his son, which took him from Grand Rapids to Washington, DC:
“Now thanks to that man that I just despise, Donald Trump — who I did not vote for and did everything I could to make sure he would finally leave office — has served me up one last injustice by making sure my son got arrested so he could stick his pride out.”
