ANTIFA Member Lisa Simon Brutally Stabs State Police Horse in Neck
A Philadelphia member of Antifa, the “anti-fascist” protest group that’s caused a number of incidents across the country in its effort to “resist” President Donald Trump, is in jail after she allegedly attacked and stabbed a Pennsylvania police horse.
The horse, Sampson, and his human partner were part of a small group of Pennsylvania State Trooper mounted police, performing crowd control at a “March Against Sharia” on Saturday.
Lisa Simon, an Antifa “counter-protester” of the March, reportedly attacked the horse with a flag pole that had a nail driven into one end in an effort to get the horse to run, causing chaos in the crowd, according to law enforcement.
Simon stabbed the horse in the neck with the weapon, but the horse was able to keep composure and continued to work despite his injury. Simon, realizing she had not made headway in her effort, then attempted to obstruct police from moving the crowd along the block where they were working.
She is now is facing a host of charges, including “aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police animal, prohibited offensive weapons, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction of administrative law.” She was arraigned Tuesday, and is currently being held on $100,000 bail.
