Idaho Guard Headed to Washington DC in Response to Protests

The Republican governor of Ohio announced on Friday that an unidentified member of the Ohio National Guard "expressed white supremacist ideology" online prior to being assigned to Washington, D.C.to help boost security amid civil unrest and #BlackLivesMatter protests in the wake of George Floyd's death. It described their injuries as "non-life threatening".

Dan Scavino, the overnight White House social media director, tweeted an image of the lightning strike.

OH sent 100 guard members to D.C. this week to help subdue social unrest amid recent anti-racism protests in response to the death of George Floyd who died in police custody in May, DeWine said.

Gov. DeWine says the individual has been suspended from all missions at this time and that it is highly likely they will be permanently removed from the National Guard. In total, 10 states sent a total of 3,300 National Guard troops to Washington, where they are working with the almost 1,300 D.C. National Guard troops under the command of Maj. Floyd died after being restrained by Minneapolis police officers.

Two National Guard members deployed to patrol Washington, DC amid widespread protests in the city were injured by lightning early Friday morning, according to a report. Three other officers are charged with aiding and abetting.

Bowser requested the removal of "all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military presence from Washington D.C. immediately".

Murphy said New Jersey's troops were not involved in clearing protesters, but were guarding monuments.

Lafayette Park is also where law enforcement used smoke canisters, pepper balls, and tear gas to force protesters away so Trump could stop by a nearby church for a photo op.
