American Greatness obtained a clip of peaceful protestors on the west side of the Capitol building on January 6. They are shown confronted by U.S. Capitol Police reportedly using flashbangs—a type of stun grenade used to disorient a target’s senses—and rubber bullets. The approximate time of the confrontation was around 1:36 p.m.
Note: This clip contains strong language throughout.
Kash Kelly, speaking in this video, is a former gang member and founder of the Streetlights Unity Movement and Foundation, a group he launched in 2020 in opposition to Black Lives Matters. The foundation helps at-risk people in inner-cities, Kelly told Julie Kelly from American Greatness during a brief interview from a Washington, D.C. jail. He was an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump.
“The police started shooting at people,” Kas Kelly said. “There were kids in the crowd.”
This video and Kash’s testimony appears to contradict widespread reports and some testimony that claimed police did not use these crowd control devices on January 6.
Kash Kelly was arrested on January 14, 2021 and charged with two misdemeanors. He was transported on March 8 to the D.C. jail holding January 6 detainees. He still remains in jail awaiting his trial.
