Anyone know what specific crime Van Jones was jailed for during the Rodney King riots. Is he on video going after Reginald Denny, the trucker beaten by a mob? Does anyone have a Mug Shot of Van Jones? Please post if so.

Bringing more cinderblocks to bash on Reginald Denny’s head???
That would take something along the lines of investigative journalism wouldn’t it?
leave it to FR
From what I’ve read he was jailed for participating in the riots after the verdicts came down.
He was arrested a second time years later for crashing through a police barricade at a different protest.
No doubt there were "more" but if they didn't get on film they didn't get caught.
Why do I get the feeling the professional criminals had immediate and easy access to a lawyer ~ Van Jones perhaps?
You’re drilling a dry hole with this one. A simple search shows he was in San Francisco acting as a legal observer and was illegally arrested a week after the riots as part of a pre-emptive mass arrest of the marchers.
This is a typical display of the liberal's inability to process the reality of a situation.
For example, Glenn Beck did not ask Obama if Van Jones was a communist. Glenn Beck asked Obama if he knew that Van Jones SAID he was a communist before he hired him.
“In an essay he wrote soon after the rioting and republished in The Huffington Post in May 2007, Jones said he “just marched around and chanted slogans” as other protesters set trash cans afire, smashed car windows and threw rocks at passing motorists.”
There were two protests. That one and the one he was arrested at.
Are all liberals just unable to process reality?
Van Jones arrest is not the issue. The issue is that he said, "I was a communist".
After graduating, Van Jones became involved with a group explicitly committed to revolutionary Marxist politics.
The current concern over his previous words and deeds are because he has the ear of the President and access to $30 Thousand Million taxpayer dollars.
Running down the street carrying a TV without a receipt.
So far that's it for any evidence that he was in San Fran. On the other hand when Van Jones says he gets locked up after a march and then becomes a Commie, that's a lie ~ he must have already been a Commie to get a job with the Lawyers Committee.
A guy who will lie to you about when he became a Commie will probably lie about everything.
I’m sure there are court records available in San Francisco that document the class action suit he was part of and received a settlement from. Maybe someone in the Bay Area can go do the research.
“Our moment had finally come! We were righteous, fired up, weren’t takin’ no more!” Jones wrote. “We were one thousand strong on Market Street, with the Bay Bridge shut down in rush hour traffic and the grounds around the state building swarming with angry mobs! Our rallying cry was for justice; our demand was that the System be changed!”
Jones continued, “Yes, the Great Revolutionary Moment had at long last come. And the time, clearly, was ours! So we stole stuff. Y’know, stole stuff. Radios, tennis shoes. Well, not everybody, of course.”
Wow — what a scumbag!
Who is vetting these appointments?
In other words, he was acting as a cheerleader for those who were rioting. He kept his hands relatively clean and can deny any wrongdoing.
exactly what Fidel Castro did in Bogata in 1948 — an attmept to overthrow the government there.

You're making the assumption that Van Jones is a lawyer. Is he? Just because he graduated from law school doesn't make him a lawyer. He has to pass the bar exam. I've not seen a report that says he has.
“In other words, he was acting as a cheerleader for those who were rioting. He kept his hands relatively clean and can deny any wrongdoing.”
The Obama definition of ‘community organizer’.
Busted for B&A.
I remember very clearly that the left made those same accusations about Dick Cheney, Halliburton, and Blackwater for years. I wonder if she ever told the moderators and administrators at huffpo that they know nothing about our legal system. Anybody want to guess? :)
May we please just charge him with wasting oxygen by continuing to breathe?
Obama is actively recruiting communists for the cause. Vetting is irrelevant. He is not trying to keep communists out of the WH, he is actively seeking them out.
His own boss clearly indicates Van didn't even get an overnighter.
All too many people are of the impression the Obamistas just hate white folks ~ actually, reading between the lines they hate Asian anti-Communists.
That's who they hate. The rest of us? They despise us.
