A Democrat leader of the State government of Virginia has been charged with numerous felonies right before the same government tried to pass reforms that would have given her a much less sentence if not forcing police to completely ignore her violent crimes altogether, leading people to wonder what the motivation is for the Democrats push to dismantle police departments around the United States in the first place.
Fox News reported, “Sen. Louise Lucas faces charges of conspiracy to commit a felony and injury to a monument in excess of $1,000, Portsmouth Police Chief Angela Greene said during a news conference. The protest occurred in June.
Lucas is a longtime Democratic legislator and a key power broker in the state Senate, joining the chamber in 1992. The charges were filed the same week Virginia lawmakers are taking up dozens of criminal justice reforms during a special legislative session.”
A powerful far-left radical Democrat came to her defense.
“It’s deeply troubling that on the verge of Virginia passing long-overdue police reform, the first Black woman to serve as our Senate Pro Tempore is suddenly facing highly unusual charges,” Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, tweeted on Monday evening.
Using a Confederate Statute as cover to riot and demand changes in law enforcement, Lucas was charged with a group of other people.
Portsmouth Police Chief Angela Greene says she's asking all people charged with felonies over damage to the Confederate statue to turn themselves in.

In fact 14 people were charged with the same violent uprising where a Confederate Statue was defaced and dismantled, causing it to fall upon a protester, resulting in injury.
Seen in this video is the incident where, at the site of a riot where Lucas had been seen, a crowd of people whipped up into a frenzy, believing they had the freedom to dismantle federal property without consequences, caused damage to human life.

Lucas is the President of the Senate, and not taking the charges seriously saying that she will be freed and vindicated because she was not at the event when the “chaos” happened, claiming that she left earlier.
Curiously Lucas is the instigator of the Senate Bill to dismantle the police department and call for “reforms” for people who break the law.
"Lucas said Friday during a conference that the bill was inspired by her efforts to have the federal government investigate one of her local police departments, though she didn’t specifically name Portsmouth.” https://t.co/MT8pxhyS9V

The charges are surprising in a state government that seems to have a General Assembly and Governor guided by radical Marxist policy, making sweeping changes over the past 2 years or more.
Reminder: VA General Assembly convenes today to take up police reform—yesterday the Portsmouth Police took the unusual step of going around their progressive prosecutor to file charges with the magistrate against the Sen. President Pro-Tem, a Black woman, for “injuring a statue.”
