PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (PNN) - September 15, 2020 - Three people are now facing criminal charges for harassing diners at a restaurant in Pittsburgh during a Black Lives Matter gathering over Labor Day weekend.
Misdemeanor charges were filed on Monday against Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24. It's unclear whether they've been taken into custody.
A viral video showed the trio and other protesters screaming “f*** the white people” and yelling other obscenities at diners outside the Sienna Mercato restaurant on Penn Avenue on September 5.
Craft was dubbed the “beer bandit” after being seen swiping a drink from an elderly white couple and downing it in front of them before another protester knocked the glass to the ground.
Green, who goes by Lorenzo Rulli, swore at the elderly couple and gave them the finger. He also walked up to the front of the restaurant and screamed into an open window.
Cops identified McDowell as the ringleader and said he used a megaphone to scream obscenities at diners sitting outside Sienna Mercato and others passing by.
McDowell was also accused of getting into an alteration with a McDonald's manager.
Craft has been charged with disorderly conduct, conspiracy and theft by unlawful taking after admitting to chugging the couple's beer.
McDowell is charged with possessing instruments of crime, conspiracy, disorderly conduct and harassment, and Rulli is charged with disorderly conduct, conspiracy, criminal mischief and simple trespass.
The diners did not appear to be engaging with the protesters.
However, the protesters involved later said there was a group of men shouting “Blue Lives Matter”.
The incident outside Sienna Mercato drew the ire of President Donald Trump, who called the protesters Joe Biden voters and anarchists in a flurry of tweets on September 8.
'These anarchists, not protesters, are Biden voters, but he has no control and nothing to say. Disgraceful. Never seen anything like it. Thugs!” wrote Trump.
Trump said this thuggery was happening in Democrat-run cities and states.
“Biden and his most liberal in Senate running mate, Kamala, won't even talk about it,” Trump said. “They won't utter the words, LAW & ORDER!”
Biden has repeatedly said that violence, looting and other bad behavior didn't count as protesting.
Cell phone footage captured the moment the violent, illiterate, BLM slobs descended on Sienna Mercato's outdoor dining space, with Craft approaching an older couple's table before drinking their beer in front of them.
Some diners picked up their belongings and left after BLM pigs called them an embarrassment.
Similar scenes have played out across the county with a diner in Washington D.C. last week cornered by a group of racist BLM thugs outside a restaurant.
In another incident, diners in Rochester were confronted by a large group of BLM thugs.
“We're shutting your party down,” one disgusting piggish woman was seen shouting in the face of a New York diner as BLM thugs smashed the customer's glasses in front of their faces, broke plates, overturned chairs, and chanted at them to get out.
Ed. Note: How can anyone support these uneducated, unintelligent, simpleton slobs who go about their days harassing people who have done them no harm? These people are nothing more than violent criminal thugs who deserve to be locked up, or in the alternative, taught some serious lessons by patriotic citizens who believe in the principles of liberty on which their country was founded.
