As he teased and promised his supporters and followers with, Richard Spencer has retweeted a post revealing the full list of 231 people arrested for the series of violent riots at the Washington, D.C. streets during President Donald Trump's Inauguration as the 45th President of the U.S. on January 20.

The list includes more than 200 people from various parts of the country. Youngest on the list are 7 persons all aged 18 while the oldest is 60 years old. Many are in their 20's, some in their 30's, plus a couple of people in their 40's, and one 58-year old. Based on the names, around 80 of those arrested are women.

Here is a link to the full list of rioters arrested during the President's Inauguration. :

The condemnable violence perpetuated by the demonstrators during the Inauguration included smashing Starbucks windows and setting a limousine on fire. Their deplorable actions cause more than $100,000 of damage to the downtown area of D.C.

Spencer's supporters believe the rioters are Marxists, antifa, anarchists and other sort of violent leftists. Those arrested and charged have been released, but are ordered to continue attending court hearings set for this month for the charges filed against them. If found guilty, the rioters could face a possible sentence of up to 10 years and will be asked to pay the fine of up to $25,000.

The mainstream media mostly underreported, if not ignored, the violent riots instigated by leftists and Trump-haters.

Some conservatives are claiming, however, that many of the protesters who ignited the riots and violence did not really know want they were fighting for, simply because they were just paid to be there. They may have referred to themselves as

anti-fascists but conservatives insist they are the ones who are acting like fascists. The funds for the riots supposedly came from George Soros.

Richard Spencer has a personal stake on the list. He was a victim of such violence when he was punched on the side of the face by a man wearing a mask while he was giving a media interview while on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Richard Spencer believed he was attacked for his beliefs and support for Trump. The crowdsourcing journalism site WeSearchr started a fund-raising post to ask people for pieces of evidence that could lead to the identity of Spencer's attackers. The bounty has since reached more than $5,000 and most of it will go to the person whose investigation could lead to the identity and eventual prosecution of the cowardly attacker.

WeSearchr said they started the initiative not only to help bring the suspect to court, but also to help protect the First Amendment, the right of American to speak their mind, regardless of their beliefs. They view the attack on Spencer as an attack on his right to speak.

WeSearchr and supporters of Spencer who contributed to the fund are united in saying keeping quiet about the attack on one of them will make everyone, or anyone, vulnerable to future attacks for their beliefs. They said that violent criminals who try to shut down the First Amendment need to be exposed, not coddled and then forgotten.

Look closely at the list as anyone of them could be Spencer's attacker, and should be soon identified. These are also the people to avoid for being violent and abusive.
