Pro-choice protestors hold rally outside Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's office in Phoenix

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Several hundred protestors gathered outside Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s office in Phoenix on Monday night for a pro-choice rally. The crowd was chanting and holding signs outside the office near 32nd Street and Camelback Road around 7 p.m. “Hey hey! Ho ho! Sinema has got to go,” the crowd chanted.

Some were seen holding signs advocating for pro-choice and criticizing Sinema. Several signs read “bans off our bodies” and “I won’t stay quiet!” Several protestors spoke with Arizona’s Family about why the protest was held outside the senator’s office.

“We’re here to protest against Kyrsten Sinema because the people have put her in a position of power and she’s not going with the best interest of what we wanted her to do in the very first place. She made campaign promises that she never upheld because at the end of the day, there’s obviously money, politics that got involved. Essentially, we feel, she turned her back on all of us and we’re here to protest that today,” said one woman in attendance.

Monday’s protest was the latest in several rallies held by pro-choice supporters. A demonstration was held in Tempe on Sunday night, where a crowd marching down Mill Avenue and University Drive was pepper-sprayed by someone driving by. Tempe police say the pepper spray hit four people, and one had to be hospitalized.

Senator Sinema will definitely lose to an as yet un-named Democrat in the 2024 primaries.

Many people, including elected officials and election officials,

are receiving threats of violence against themselves and their families from right wing domestic terrorists, and are resigning their positions because of this.

Is the DOJ investigating these threats? If not, why not?

It is my understanding that threats of this nature are felonies. Yet there seems to be no law enforcement investigations directed at finding the perpetrators of these threats whatsoever.

What's going on? Does the DOJ need to hire more cyber crime investigators to root out these fascist criminals? Are these threats the responsibility of individual state agencies to address? If so, fascists in red state law enforcement agencies will not investigate their fascist cohorts who make these threats. So maybe the DOJ needs to investigate these state agencies to find out why they are allowing these threats to continue with impunity, if that is the province of the DOJ.

I don't understand. Anyone know why fascist domestic terrorists are freely allowed to make threats of violence against American citizens with total impunity?
