Agents raided the North Hollywood home of Netflix actor Siaka Massaquoi (right) who participated in the "Stop the Steal" protest rally in Washington, DC in January.
Massaquoi was photographed among the Trump supporters protesting the 2020 presidential election in the nation's capitol on January 6, 2021.
Nearly two dozen armed agents raided Massaquoi's home, terrorizing the actor and his friends just before 6 a.m. on Friday, the L.A. Times reports.
42-year-old Brian Burks and his two minor children were in the home at the time of the raid.
Burks' ex-wife, Luvelle Mendoza, told the Times that her ex-husband was "briefly detained" by agents. She said her two sons, ages three and seven, were also in the home when the agents stormed in with semi-automatic rifles.
"My heart breaks," said Mendoza who worries about the mental trauma to her young boys. "They had to see the big guns and I just think, I wasn't there to console them."
The Times reports that both men are under investigation for their comments on a social media app.
Massaquoi is best known for his roles in "S.W.A.T." and "NCIS: Los Angeles." He attended political rallies in support of former President Donald Trump in 2020. And he participated in the movement to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat.
On his Instagram account, Massaqoui, a registered Republican, said he was within his constitutional rights to protest -- just as Black Lives Matter and Antifa protested by looting and burning down courthouses and police stations last summer.
"I did nothing wrong on the 6th... did nothing violent," Massaquoi wrote on IG.
A shocking viral video shows the final moments of a delivery driver's life after two teenage girls carjacked him in Washington, DC.
The 13- and 15-year-old girls have been charged as adults in the death of 66-year-old father-of-three Mohammad Anwar, who was killed when he was thrown from his speeding car.
Anwar, a delivery driver for Uber Eats, was working in the southeast section of D.C. when two girls attempted to carjack him.
Cell phone video footage shows Anwar leaning halfway out of his car, as a girl wearing an orange hoodie attempts to push him out of his car.
Anwar tells a bystander "they're kids", while holding on to the steering wheel of his car.
Anwar had put the car in park, but one of the teenagers shifted the transmission into drive and hit the accelerator. The car sped off -- with Anwar still holding on for dear life.
Two loud bangs are heard on the video as the open driver's side door impacted two metal light poles during the car's route.
Seconds later, the car lost control, overturned and crashed, leaving Anwar sprawled on the sidewalk near death from severe head injuries.
Several National Guardsmen are seen on the video helping the teenagers out of the wrecked vehicle.
As her victim lay dying, one of the teens is overheard saying, "Please, my phone is in there. My phone!"
Twitter users criticized CNN for calling the murder an "accident" -- and D.C. mayor Muriel Bower was dragged for appearing to blame the victim by reminding residents to lock their cars to prevent auto theft.

A Georgia man who traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the MAGA protests killed himself with a gunshot blast to the chest.
Christopher Stanton Georgia, 53, was found deceased in the basement of his Alpharetta, Georgia home on Saturday, Jan. 9.
Georgia's wife called 911 to report there was "blood everywhere." He died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. The Fulton County examiner ruled Georgia died by suicide.
Georgia was arrested on January 6, the day of the riots, for violating the District of Columbia's 6 p.m. curfew.
Georgia also faced misdemeanor charges of attempting to enter the U.S. Capitol grounds, "against the will of the United States Capitol Police."
Family members described him as being depressed and "extremely distressed," according to a police report.
Officers removed two semi-automatic SKS rifles from Georgia's home. Georgia was a regional portfolio manager at BB&T bank.
He faced 180 days in jail and fines up to $1,000 for the misdemeanor charges. Georgia was the second suicide linked to the Capitol riots.

D.C. parents who don't want their children to get the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine are concerned about new legislation that limits their parental rights.
According to the Washington Post, the D.C. Council passed B23-017 (Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act) to vaccinate all schoolchildren without parental consent -- as long as the child understands the need for, and the risks of the vaccine.
The "Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act" permits a child aged 11 years or older "to consent to receive a vaccine where the vaccination is recommended by the United States Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. It also establishes that if a minor is able to comprehend the need for, the nature of, and any significant risks inherent in the medical care then informed consent is established."
Clearly the D.C. Council members believe children today are smarter than they were back in the day when a child needed a signed consent form just to go on a school field trip.
