While the Stop Cop City riot in Atlanta following the death of Antifa gunman Manuel 'Tortuguita' Teran grabbed headlines for the fiery scenes there were demonstrations in support of the left wing gunman who shot a state trooper across the country including Lansing Michigan, Madison Wisconsin, Portland Oregon, and Boston Massachusetts.
The Boston protest didn't get media attention the night of, however the next day Boston police put out a press release stating some basic information about arrests. AntifaWatch was first to report that Jared Dowell, an individual listed in the release as having allegedly vandalized property with "Stop Cop City" graffiti then attacked police was the biological son of the number two Democrat in the House of Representatives, Minority Whip Katherine M. Clark.
Through our fast and knowledgeable social media research we had found Jared's Facebook. Where he used the name Riley and was Facebook friends with his congresswoman mother. Limited other information was on Jared's Facebook except for several posts about a leftist mutual aid group called Northshore Mutual Aid. The Facebook was deleted within minutes of our original post.
Through more research we located Jared Dowell's reddit page. On reddit he posted on anarchist, anti-capitalist and LGBTQ+ subreddits. The posts and other information indicated that Jared had come out as non-binary two years ago and later as trans. Jared had gone to Middlebury, a private liberal arts college and then worked as a freelance artist.
Four hours after we broke the story Katherine M. Clark responded publicly and acknowledged the arrest and described it as a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting. In the post Clark referred to Jared as her daughter and used the name Riley.
Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting.— Katherine Clark (@WhipKClark) January 22, 2023
This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.
Jared was released the next day on $500 bail. He's charged with Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon and vandalism. Another individual who was arrested at the same Antifa demonstration for vandalism, Andrea Colletti was also released. LiveBoston617 obtained additional information including booking photos, police reports, and radio scanner traffic from the arrest. That information revealed that Jared Dowell had left the officer bleeding from his face as well as the knowledge that police had about the connection between this protest and violent extremist activities nationwide
While Jared is unlikely to face any real punishment for his actions due to the massive amount of political power that his mother has, the case will likely end in yet another example of criminality and violence from Antifa being enabled by the system.
