In a “protest” gone wrong, former Charlottesville City Councilor, Wes Bellamy, was arrested by U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) in Washington D.C.’s Hart Senate Office Building.

A July 15 USCP Tweet described the situation:

“This afternoon, nine people were arrested for demonstrating in a prohibited area on Capitol Grounds. At approximately 3:30pm the United States Capitol Police responded to the Atrium in the Hart Senate Office Building for reports of illegal demonstration activity. After officers arrived on the scene, they warned the demonstrators three times to stop. Those who refused were arrested for D.C. Code §22– 1307. Two males and seven females were transported to UCSP headquarters for processing.” – United States Capitol Police

U.S. Representative Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, was among those arrested.

The protest was in opposition to Republican State legislative efforts to secure elections following multiple and ongoing investigations into voting irregularities and alleged fraud in the November 2020 United States Presidential Election.

  1. I wonder if he will be locked up in solitary confinement, denied bail, called an insurrectionist like the other protesters on Jan 6th….NAH…he’s black so they probably already let him go.

  2. bill baily He certainly will not be treated the same considering his political affiliation. His race is not as important. Black republicans would be treated the same as any other republican. It is the left that puts everything through a racial lens. Your statement assumes his race will provide a less harsh treatment when in fact it is his political views.

  3. Sorry Dan but you don’t know this guy as well as we all do in Charlottesville and his race has EVERYTHING to do with this. He is a race hustler and will scream “Racism” till they let him out with a pat on the head and let him go on his merry way.

  4. Elected in Cville…employed by government schools in Albie. Now in a make-pretend position at a play-college. Funny how the head of a Congressional subgroup can oversee a protest where people go onto grounds illegally and occupy them, refuse to leave…are called mere “protesters.” Melanin can be a wonderful thing!
