It is evident that Rhode Island Democratic District 28 state Senator Joshua Miller believes he is above the law, based on his reaction when he was arrested by the Cranston Police after they reviewed multiple sources of area video surveillance footage, which clearly showed Miller committing the crime.
In the video, during the initial encounter with the police, Miller repeatedly attempts to deceive his way out of the situation, trying to evade charges and even portraying himself as the victim, oblivious to the fact that he was caught on video. Once again, it is evident that individuals like Democratic Senator Miller think they can act with impunity and do as they please. In this particular instance, Miller vandalized a private citizen’s vehicle because he was angered by an anti-Biden sticker on it. What is even more disturbing than his acts of anger and vandalism is his repeated attempts to distort the incident and lie to law enforcement.
The evidence clearly demonstrates misconduct, and Senator Josh Miller should not only be removed from office but also barred from running for public office in the future. We must hold our politicians to higher standards. Despite the significant time between the initial encounter and Miller’s arrest, he did nothing to rectify the situation but instead continued to dig himself deeper into his lie. We hope that the true victim of these heinous crimes not only presses charges against Miller but also hires an attorney to file a complaint with the Rhode Island State Ethics Commission, the Rhode Island State Police, and any other relevant oversight or investigative bodies. If Miller had not been caught on video, the outcome could have been very different.
We commend the Cranston Police Department for taking the appropriate action, and we expect the Office of the Attorney General in Rhode Island to do the same. Perhaps if Rhode Island residents contact them and demand action, justice will be served.
