Christopher DeVries of Jackson, New Hampshire, an organizer and leader of a Black Lives Matter protest known as "Skate Away the Hate," has been arrested on six counts of possession of child pornography.
DeVries served on the Municipal Budget Committee for the town of Conway. The images of child abuse found on his cell phone allegedly show underage girls in "lewd exhibition" of their private body parts and engaging in sexual activity. The left-wing activist was also charged for possession of psilocybin mushrooms, which is a class B felony punishable by seven years in prison.
Additionally, DeVries was slapped with charges of falsifying physical evidence when he threw his cellphone from the porch when police arrived.
His "Skate Away the Hate" protest on June 21 involved participants riding their bikes and skateboards down Route 16 in New Hampshire. During the demonstration, DeVries used a loudspeaker to read off a list of demands he said were communicated to him by local Black Lives Matter chapters.
Prior to his event, DeVries told reporters: "I feel like this is one of the best things I can do as a father on Father's Day... I want to live in a world where racism is not accepted or tolerated, and I don't want to live in a community or know there are communities in this country where people are afraid of their local police."
He also said that "If we divest funds from police and prison systems we all benefit" and that he arranged for his protest to take place on Father's Day because it would be "one of the best things I can do as a Father on Father's day."
Speaking about the arrest, Jackson Police Chief Chris Perley said that "generally speaking, people should be very cautious about listening to voices suggesting defunding of the police because their motives are not always in the best interest of society."
A commenter on The Conway Daily Sun wrote: "Gee, why does he want the police defunded? Particularly the cybercrimes forces. When the police go away, no one will find the pedophiles until its [sic] too late."
Another said that "Defunding the police, BLM, and Antifa are all Marxist ideology that are being brought forth into the public eye. These are being funded by George Soros, a billionaire who funds and starts political wars in many countries. Unfortunately we have people that support an idea of defunding law enforcement based on poor facts and misguided information."
Each count of possession of child sex abuse images is a Class A felony punishable by a maximum of 15 years in prison and a $4,000 fine. Those charges alone could put DeVries behind bars for 90 years. He has pleaded not guilty and the case remains active.
Although the media widely reports incidents in which police officers allegedly abuse their authority, little attention is given to the various incidents of wrongdoing on the part of Black Lives Matter activists in recent weeks.
The American mainstream media almost completely ignored the story of 24-year-old mother Jessica Doty-Whitaker, who was shot in the head and killed by Black Lives Matter supporters in Indianapolis on July 5 merely because she uttered the phrase "All Lives Matter."
Then there's Black Lives Matter activist Henry E. Washington, the lone suspect in the shooting and killing of Bothell, Washington, police officer Jonathan Shoop this week. Reports say Washington opened fire on Shoop and his partner, Mustafa Kumcur, causing Kumcur to unintentionally shoot Shoop fatally.
A witness said Washington told Shoop and Kumcur "come on pig, come on pig" while walking towards their vehicle. Police believe Washington shot first and the officers returned fire.
From pedophilia to murder, Black Lives Matter is rife with criminality, though the media does its best to minimize this pesky aspect of it, always referring to its members as "peaceful protesters" even as they loot stores, vandalize property, and throw blunt objects at police officers.
During the cross fire, police believe a bullet Washington fired struck Kumcur's firearm. That may have helped deflect the bullet from fatally striking Kumcur in the face, though he was injured. But it also may have re-positioned Kumcur's weapon towards Shoop, causing Kumcur to unintentionally fire on his partner.
The media is simply doing its job - not its declared job of reporting facts, but its real job. If groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter are the socialist movement's militant wings, the mainstream media is the propaganda arm.
