You can support your child while at the same admitting the child is wrong.
That, sadly, is not the case with House Democrat Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA).
Her daughter has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer.
Clark's response to the arrest says just about everything you need to know in terms of the problems we have today regarding a lack of respect for police and a new generation that is so out of control.
According to reports, Riley Dowell, 23, has been arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, destruction or injury of personal property, and damage of property by graffiti.
The local police report referred to the arrestee as "Jared Dowell," as Clark's daughter is among those that believes you can change your gender by changing your name.
Boston Police were called to the Parkman Bandstand Monument in the Boston Common late Saturday night.
According to Fox News, "When they arrived, they saw Dowell allegedly spray-painting 'ACAB,' which stands for 'All Cops Are Bastards,' and 'NO COP CITY,' an apparent reference to a police training facility in the suburbs of Atlanta that has sparked protests after officers shot and killed a protester who allegedly opened fire on them, injuring one."
When the police arrested Dowell, they stated that a large group of protesters then "began to surround officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street causing traffic to come to a standstill."
During the altercation, "an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth."
This was Clark's response to the arrest…
Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting.
This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.

This is the second highest-ranking Democrat in the House, yet she cannot call out her own daughter for defacing property, rioting, and assaulting a police officer.
If she wants to protest, fine, but everything else that happened is a complete disgrace.
If you don't think Clark's thinking is tainted by the beliefs of her daughter, well, perhaps you should be the one seeking mental health treatment instead of her daughter.
