Fort Worth has dropped all charges against people arrested for "rioting" related to the George Floyd protests. This seems insane to me, which makes me think there is more to this story. What exactly are these people charged with? Does it include looting, burglary, throwing things at police, and other things like that, or is it just people who were out past curfew?
Probably riot, at least that’s what the press release says
Although there may be other charges relating to particular acts within the overall event.
It is definitively for rioting, and not a general amnesty. The letter from Chief Kraus states in his letter "I am dropping all charged for rioting that have resulted from the protests in Forth Worth".
