Convention Chaos: Bernie Sanders Supporters in Philadelphia Chant ‘Lock Her Up!’

 It’s not just Republicans that want presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in prison.

At a lively Sunday march in support of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, chants of “lock her up,” “Hillary for Prison” signs and t-shirts and calls for indictment were common among the most ardent supporters of Mr. Sanders, who arrived in Philadelphia to make their voices heard to the delegates attending the Democratic National Convention.

Republicans used last week’s Republican National Convention to make the case that Mrs. Clinton’s perceived ethical lapses made her unfit for office. Delegates to the Republican convention could be heard chanting “Lock her up!” while “Hillary for Prison” shirts and bumper stickers have proliferated across the country.

Mrs. Clinton hasn’t been accused of any criminal wrongdoing — in fact, Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey explicitly said that her use of a private email server for government work did not rise to the level that would justify criminal charges. However, Mr. Comey called her “extremely careless” in her handling of the nation’s secrets by running her work email off a private server, while a State Department probe concluded that she was in violation of Department rules.

But at the pro-Sanders rally, attendees were more than eager to list the reasons that Mrs. Clinton deserved to be incarcerated. At least once during a four-mile march from City Hall to Roosevelt Park, rallygoers began loudly chanting “Lock her up!” — the same chant heard on the floor of the RNC.

Javier Ruiz, 20, listed the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks, her use of personal email email and her refusal to unconditionally condemn hydraulic fracturing as reasons she should be imprisoned.

Standing in Roosevelt Park, another protester named Tim Keane saw a young woman dressed in an costume with wings. “Are you the indictment fairy?” he asked her with a smile, then invited her to sign a “Bernie card.”

In an interview after, he explained that it seems “there’s at least some level of criminal negligence” in her use of a private email server.

Erica Albanese, who traveled from Oregon, wore a “Hillary for Prison” shirt as she wandered around the park after the four mile march.

She said that Mrs. Clinton was guilty of “perjury” adding: “She lied about her documents and her emails.”

Dylan Melnik, 24, from Boston carried a sign in the march that said “Hillary 4 Prison 2016.”

“He basically inferred under any other circumstances she might be indicted, but because she’s Hillary, she won’t be indicted,” Mr. Melnik said about Mr. Comey’s press conference.

Top Democrats and even some Republicans have said that the calls to jail Mrs. Clinton even as the government’s top law enforcement officials have said she has committed no wrongdoing were inappropriate.

“When I see this, you know, “Crooked Hillary,” or I see the, “Lock her up,” it’s just ridiculous. It is ridiculous,” Mrs. Clinton’s new running-mate Tim Kaine said in a preview of an interview 60 Minutes

Jeff Flake, a Republican senator from Arizona, wrote on Twitter last week: “@HillaryClinton now belongs in prison? C’mon. We can make the case that she shouldn’t be elected without jumping the shark.”

A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton didn’t respond to a request for comment.
