Katherine Clark’s Daughter Faces Police Assault Charges

Katherine Clark’s Daughter Faces Police Assault Charges: Massachusetts U.S. Representative Katherine Clark’s daughter was detained at a Boston Common demonstration on Saturday night and then charged with assault after a police officer was hurt. The Boston Police Department announced on its website that the 23-year-old would likely be set in Boston Municipal Court.

The House Democratic whip, Clark, tweeted that Riley Dowell, her daughter, had been detained. In the cycle of joy and suffering that comes with motherhood, Clark said, “I love Riley, but this is a challenging time.” “The legal system will assess this, and I believe in that process.”

In light of the prejudice against transgender persons, Clark has openly discussed her nonbinary child’s anxieties. According to the police, they were called to a report at the Parkman Bandstand Monument on Boston Common. According to police, they discovered Dowell, a Melrose resident, defacing the monument with anti-police slurs and spray paint.

According to police, during the arrest, “a group of about 20 demonstrators began to encircle cops while screaming profanities over megaphones on the public street, causing traffic to come to a stop,” and “one officer was punched in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.”

According to the police, Dowell was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, injury or destruction to personal property, and damage to property through graffiti or tagging.

Protests over the use of force erupted after a fatal police shooting earlier this month in nearby Cambridge. Sayed Faisal, a 20-year-old University of Massachusetts Boston student, was fatally shot by Cambridge police.

Police claimed that the man was advancing on the cops while brandishing what they described as a kukri, a type of blade and that a less-than-lethal “sponge round” had failed to stop him. Clark, representing the state’s 5th Congressional District, is now serving her sixth term in the House.
