An arrest has just been made this election season, and unfortunately it’s not of Hillary Clinton. If you ever think Hillary and Trump are bad, look no further than the third party candidates this election and you’ll realize it could be worse.
Representing the Green Party is Jill Stein, and she’s just as crazy as her socialist policies. Imagine Bernie Sanders: just female.
She panders to anti-vaccine conspiracy theorists, believes that nuclear power plants are “weapons of mass destruction,” and thinks that Wi-Fi is bad for people’s brains. She’s clearly the kookiest of the group, and now, the first to soon be arrested.
Arrest warrants have been issued for Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka.
The pair are facing misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass and criminal mischief after they spray-painted bulldozers during a protest Tuesday, according to the Morton County sheriff’s department in North Dakota.
Stein and Baraka were participating in a protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.
The Stein campaign confirmed that the Green Party candidate did spray-paint “I approve this message” on a bulldozer. According to the sheriff’s office, video also shows Baraka painting the word “decolonization” as part of the sentence “we need decolonization.”
Stein is not apologizing, though.
“I hope the North Dakota authorities press charges against the real vandalism taking place at the Standing Rock Sioux reservation: the bulldozing of sacred burial sites and the unleashing of vicious attack dogs,” she said in a statement. “Our campaign supports the courageous Indigenous leaders who are taking a stand to protect future generations from the deadly greed of the fossil fuel industry.”

Jill Stein’s Twitter account has shown activity since the news broke that a warrant was issued for her arrest, so it looks like she hasn’t been brought in just yet. Hopefully Hillary Clinton is next on the list – as she’s clearly done much worse, no?
There are at least three Federal laws that Hillary Clinton broke while using her own private email server; mishandling classified information, violating the 2009 Federal Records Act, and violation of the Freedom Of Information Act. That did much more damage, and put many more lives at risk than simply spray painting a truck.
Should we expect an arrest warrant for Hillary to come anytime soon? I doubt it, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
