Pittsburgh police ID suspect who allegedly incited violence during Saturday's protest

Hat tip, KDKA. I leave a radio by my bedside on all night.

Maybe he's like me -- oppressed for his good looks. From what you can see of him, he's a good-looking guy.

He has a YouTube channel. There's no content. There's a tiny picture of him there without the mask.

Pittsburgh police ID suspect who allegedly incited violence during Saturday’s protest

Pittsburgh police on Sunday afternoon served a search warrant for a suspect believed to have incited the violence that punctuated Saturday’s Downtown protest over the killing of George Floyd by law enforcement in Minnesota.

The warrant was served against Brian Jordan Bartels, 20 of Shaler for allegedly “breaking the windows out of a marked Pittsburgh Police vehicle Uptown, against the wishes of peaceful protesters who tried to stop him,” according to a release from police.

Mr. Bartels was not home when police served the warrant at his Shaler residence, but they did find evidence that links him to the violence that occurred Saturday. He is currently facing charges of “institutional vandalism, rioting and reckless endangerment of another person,” according to the report.

A warrant has been issued for Mr. Bartels’ arrest while the investigation continues.

1. Do these people not realize there are

cameras everywhere and their phones make excellent tracking devices?

Pittsburgh Police released the names and addresses of all 46 people arrested. 43 were from the area, but 3 were listed as "John Doe" as they refused to give their names.

14. Whoever sent him out to start fires and throw bricks in windows

... DOES know, and that's why they sent somebody young and stupid to do the dirty work.

This kid probably thinks the bandanna on his face makes him impervious to getting caught.
Dumb and wrong!

22. The kid's apparently on the run

At least that's what I think I heard on the noon news here. Police got a warrant and searched his house. They found some weapons, relevent literature and the sweatshirt he was seen wearing at the protest. Undoubtedly, he's going to end up in jail for awhile.

19. Yes it is...

with his social media scrubbed, i wouldn't be sure he is affiliated with ALF. Might've been told that's what blac bloc would wear. I'd talk to his classmates to see what kind of kid he was, what his home life was like... though he'll face justice as a man.

4. I believe...

it's a "stylized" anarchists' "A" formed from assault rifles. I could certainly be wrong though.

5. I was trying to figure that out

Someone on Twitter said it was the Animal Liberation Front, but that’s not it.

8. I believe it is a twist on the Circle with an A inside that stands for Anarchy

I don't know what the additional marks may mean.

18. Yeah, the more I looked at it, the more it seemed like rifles making the A to me.

But I didn't want to be presumptuous.

9. Social media scrubbed

Did a quick google search and all of this asshole’s social media has been deleted except for an old Pinterest account. Wonder if this happened after his name was made public or before and he’s planning something even worse.

11. Right - we're supposed to believe these guys support

... Black Lives Matter? Give me a break!

They don't give a rat's ass about BLM, they're just stirring up trouble. Most likely ChumpHumpers too! This pic was already shared on Facebook, and people were saying it's a woman. Not a woman, apparently it's a very young man who's not even shaving yet.

20. A somewhat local lowlife

Shaler Township is North of the Uptown section of Pittsburgh where video of him attacking a police car on Centre Ave near Epiphany Catholic Church was captured by cell phone and posted online. Shaler Township includes a number small suburban towns including his. These events occurred near Duquesne University.

He's wearing an ALF bandana as a earlier poster has noted. I'm not sure if the photo is flipped horizontally or if the bandana is being worn backward. He also wears a black hoodie that looks a lot like it has Animal Liberation on the back.

21. Here's a link to the newspaper reporter's Twitter account:

Morning! Resharing my story from last night on Brian Jordan Bartels, the 20-year-old from Shaler who allegedly incited the violence at Saturday’s #pittsburghprotest.

What a wild, unprecedented weekend in da Burgh and beyond
