A well-funded Black Lives Matter activist was arrested Thursday for inciting violence inside the Capitol building during the DC riots. It was John Sullivan's second arrest in one week.

The Utah resident and anti-Trump activist told Just the News last week that he was present in Washington, DC, the day of the riot "specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down."

But photos show Sullivan wearing pro-Trump gear and carrying a Trump flag. He was captured on video shouting "Let's go. This shit is ours!" and "Let's burn this shit down."?

He bragged online that he broke a window at the Capitol building and led pro-Trump protesters inside.

Sullivan just happened to be filming near Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt when she was shot and killed by a Black Secret Service agent outside the Senate chamber.

Moments after Babbitt was shot, Sullivan's blonde accomplice, Jade Sacker, couldn't contain her excitement.

"We did it!" Sacker told Sullivan. "You were right! We did it!"

"Dude, I was trying to tell you," Sullivan replied. "I couldn't say much. Is this not going to be the best film you've ever made in your life?"

Sullivan was arrested on January 6, and charged with "rioting and criminal mischief." He was quickly released when he told police he was a "journalist" covering the riots.

Sullivan made the rounds on cable television news, explaining what he saw when Babbitt was shot just feet away from him.

The FBI later insisted no Black Lives Matter or Antifa activists participated in the riots.

But dozens of videos have since surfaced showing Sullivan instigating violence inside the Capitol building on Jan. 6.

Sullivan was arrested again on Thursday, Jan. 14, on charges stemming from his involvement in the riots. He is still in custody at this time.

Authorities used Sullivan's own videos to make the arrest, according to KUTV 2 News.

The feds were willing to let Sullivan go the first time. But he ran his mouth too much for them to ignore him.

Boone fled the home before police arrived but officers found hr walking down the street and arrested her, according to the documents.

Police have arrested one of the juveniles seen in viral videos attacking a BMW on a Manhattan street this week.

Video footage shows dozens of teens surrounding the vehicle, kicking the car and punching the windows as the driver's frantic mother called 911 while screaming, "We're going to die!

The 70-year-old woman and her son had just dropped off a donation to a nonprofit organization that benefits Black Lives Matter when the attack happened.

Max Torgovnick told the NY Post he and his mother were headed to his father's neurology office on Fifth Avenue when his BMW was surrounded by a pack of 50 teenagers on BMX bicycles -- Christmas gifts from a nonprofit organization.

Torgovnick said he was worried the teens would smash out his car windows, get inside the car and pull them out.

According to the NY Post, the juvenile detainee, who lives in Queens, is being charged with vandalism to Torgovnick's car and other misdemeanors.

More arrests are expected.

Fulton County Sheriff

A Georgia woman has been charged in the brutal beating death of a 2-year-old girl she was babysitting.

Sandy Springs police say Kirstie Hannah Flood, 29, beat little Fallon Fridley to death in the Sandy Springs apartment the toddler shared with her mother, Kristin Fridley Gantt.

Flood was arrested two days after Fallon was found unresponsive in the apartment.

Gantt, an employee at Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, told Channel 2 Action News the babysitter called her at work, crying hysterically, and told her the toddler fell and hit her head on playground equipment.

Fallon was rushed to a Children's Healthcare of Atlanta location, where she was pronounced dead, according to police.

Doctors told police the child's injuries were inconsistent with Flood's story.

The coroner's report revealed a massive skull fracture and lacerations to Fallon's liver, spleen and colon. The autopsy showed the girl "suffered severe injuries that resulted in her death during her care by the suspect," Sandy Springs police said Tuesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Flood had been Fallon's babysitter since August, and she was a family friend for years. Gantt couldn't comprehend that Flood was capable of such brutality.

Apparently, Flood was also unaware of the murderous rage that lurked inside her.

Police obtained a search warrant for her Flood's phone and found internet searches for "what does it mean to have a sudden urge to beat a child that's not yours," and "what type of people enjoy abusing other people's children" according to the warrant.

Flood, who is from Smyrna, was arrested five times before her 21st birthday, according to Cobb County records obtained by the AJC. The charges ranged from battery to alcohol use and drug possession.

Flood is being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond.

A GoFundMe page created for funeral expenses raised nearly $32,000 as of Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Facebook, DeKalb County Sheriff

A Georgia man was charged with leaving a loaded handgun unattended after a 5-year-old girl was shot in the face at her babysitter's DeKalb County home.

Jada Willingham died on Friday, Dec. 4, soon after arriving at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston Hospital, according to AJC.com.

Jada was shot in the face by a playmate she had known all her life, the AJC reports.

The shooting occurred in a babysitter's Lithonia home. The 68-year-old woman told investigators Jada was one of four children she was watching in her home when she heard a shot ring out, followed by a scream.

She said Jada and her playmate were in a bedroom where they apparently found a loaded gun. The babysitter found Jada on the floor of the bedroom, bleeding from a wound to her face.

On Friday, Dec. 11, police charged Chad Brooks, Sr. with 2nd-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to children for allegedly leaving the gun unattended.

Brooks is currently in custody at the DeKalb County Jail, Fox 5 reports. Officials say they have not determined who fired the fatal shot.

The babysitter has not been charged.

A GofundMe page raised $10,000 for Jada's funeral. She was laid to rest last week.

Atlanta US Attorney's Office

The feds are cracking down on Georgia employees who submitted fake medical excuse letters that claim they fell ill after testing positive for Covid-19.

Santwon Antonio Davis, of Atlanta, was charged with wire fraud for emailing a phony Covid-19 medical excuse letter to his employer in May 2020.

Davis, 35, also pleaded guilty to bank fraud related to the scheme to defraud a mortgage company while he was out on bond for the Covid-19 wire fraud charge.

"The defendant caused unnecessary economic loss to his employer and distress to his coworkers and their families," said U.S. Attorney Byung J. "BJay" Pak. "We will take quick action through the Georgia COVID-19 Task Force to put a stop to Coronavirus-related fraud schemes."

Chris Hacker, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta, said Davis caused "undue harm to the company he worked for and their employees," after the corporation sent employees home and shut down the Atlanta facility for cleaning.

Employees were paid to stay home - a loss in excess of $100,000 to the corporation, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Northern District of Georgia.

According to the complaint, the defendant was hit with an additional charge for submitting fraudulent documentation to obtain benefits from his employer prior to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Davis allegedly submitted a paid bereavement leave claim for the death of his child in the fall of 2019. But a subsequent investigation determined the child did not exist.

Davis' arrest is among the first in Covid-19-related employee fraud investigations currently underway in Georgia.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with assistance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of the Inspector General.

"The FBI and our federal and state partners remain vigilant in detecting, investigating and prosecuting any fraud related to this crisis we are all facing," said Hacker.

Federal agents have arrested rap fugitive Casanova (right), who was indicted on RICO and racketeering charges related to criminal activities committed by his gang "Untouchable Gorilla Stones", including the murder of a 15 year old boy.

"Baby, I love you like cooked food," Casanova said in a video shared by his wife on social media.

The feds also indicted Chicago gangsta rapper G Herbo, real name Herbert Wright III (left and below), on 14 federal charges that included wire fraud, and aggravated identity theft, in a federal court in Massachusetts.

G Herbo's lawyer is making arrangements with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the rapper to turn himself in in Massachusetts.

G Herbo and several crew members are accused of conducting a multi-year fraud scheme involving stolen credit cards and ID theft, totaling $1.5 million.

According to the indictment, the gang used stolen credit cards to buy designer puppies, rent private jets and luxury villas in Jamaica.

Herbo, 25, and Casanova, 34, are part of a crew of gang bangers who are signed by record labels to bring realism to the rap game.

Unlike bold name rappers such as Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, the new breed of gangsta rappers live the life of violence they rap about on records.

G Hergo and Casanova, real name Caswell Senior, are accused of murdering other "rappers", but they have not been charged without those alleged crimes.

Lil Wayne came out in support of President Donald Trump, and now he has just been hit with a federal weapons charge and could face serious prison time if convicted.

The internet is questioning the timing of the federal charges.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida has charged the rapper with 1 count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

According to TMZ, the charge is for a December 2019 incident where federal agents Searched Weezy's private jet at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport. He was a passenger on that plane, which made a stop in Florida on its way to California.

At the time, Wayne's attorney said his client was "cleared" to leave even though guns and drugs were reportedly found on the plane.

Some are questioning why the feds waited to charge Wayne of being wrongfully in possession of a weapon and ammunition.

He is scheduled to appear in court next month. TMZ reached out to Lil Wayne's team for comment, but they did not respond.
