Charges have been dropped against the remaining 38 protesters who were arrested during the J20 protests at President Donald Trump's inauguration.
On Thursday, chastened prosecutors dropped felony charges that seven anti-Trump protesters were facing for their involvement in the #DisruptJ20 march on Inauguration Day 2017.
The ongoing cases against the J20 defendants represent a dangerous precedent for future social justice movements: guilt by association.
A jury acquitted all six defendants being prosecuted for more than $100,000 in damages that occurred across Washington, D.C., during inauguration protests.
In its case against inauguration protesters, the government is aligning itself with far-right propagandists and fringe vigilantes.
