Republicans took the House and suddenly the FBI took a break from armed raids of pro-life activists for engaging in civil disobedience to investigate the nationwide campaign of domestic terrorism against pregnancy centers. The Jane’s Revenge attacks have gone on with no action on the FBI front.
But now the FBI has offered rewards for the attacks and made the first two arrests. Apparently, the only way to get the FBI to enforce the law is for Republicans to win elections.
Two Florida residents were indicted by a federal grand jury for spray-painting threats on reproductive health services facilities in the state.
The indictment, returned by a federal grand jury in the Middle District of Florida, alleges that Caleb Freestone, 27, and Amber Smith-Stewart, 23, engaged in a conspiracy to prevent employees of reproductive health services facilities from providing those services.
According to the indictment, as part of the conspiracy, the defendants targeted pregnancy resource facilities and vandalized those facilities with spray-painted threats. According to the indictment, Freestone and Smith-Stewart, and other co-conspirators, are alleged to have spray painted threats, including “If abortions aren’t safe than niether [sic] are you,” “YOUR TIME IS UP!!,” “WE’RE COMING for U,” and “We are everywhere,” on a reproductive health services facility in Winter Haven, Florida. The indictment further alleges that facilities in Hollywood, Florida, and Hialeah, Florida, were also targeted.
A leftist activist of the same name had previously made headlines in the area.
When Caleb Freestone went to the Miami-Dade County School Board meeting on July 20, he says he was planning to give public comment on an ethics proposal and to speak in support of the district’s comprehensive health textbooks.
But he never got that opportunity.
The meeting devolved into chaos when women opposed to the curriculum — which included information on sex and reproduction — began shouting at board members, accusing the district of “indoctrination”, and bringing the deliberations to a halt.
On the other side of the auditorium, bystanders said Freestone — who’s a left-leaning activist — was sitting quietly. But he was physically removed from the meeting and arrested, after one of the women appeared to accuse him of being “antifa”.
The article is all about how Freestone is an innocent victim who did nothing wrong. And you can always trust the media.
There are also screenshots of an account describing Amber Smith-Stewart as antifa and using the ACAB acronym. It’s unknown if those are genuine. It’s also unknown if this is the same Caleb Freestone. But if so, it does look like the fairly typical profile for lefty radicals. The FBI could have been busting the perps of the previous attacks, instead it did nothing until the leadership realized that they’d have to answer questions in congressional hearings and decided to throw law and order a bone.
