During the riots two years ago, a pair of young lawyers were caught throwing a Molotov Cocktail at a police car.
They were originally facing terrorism charges that would have sent them to jail for ten years or more, but have now accpted a reduced sentence deal that will send them to jail for maybe two years.
It’s obvious what happened here. They’re on the left, so their crimes don’t count.
It’s a good thing they weren’t caught at the Capital on January 6th.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
How the Left Learned To Stop Worrying and Love Domestic Terrorism
On the cusp of nonstop, around-the-clock (primetime!) coverage of the Jan. 6 committee hearings, a couple of domestic terrorists are actually getting their day in court, and it is informative to see how Merrick Garland’s Justice Department is handling their prosecution.
Recall Garland’s breathless declaration, during his confirmation hearings, that “150 years after the Department’s founding, battling extremist attacks on our democratic institutions also remains central to its mission.”…
In mid-May, the same career DOJ prosecutors who argued for that 10-year sentence were back in court withdrawing their plea deal and entering a new one that allowed the defendants to cop to the lesser charge of conspiracy. It tosses out the terrorism enhancement entirely.
The new charge carries a five-year maximum sentence, but the prosecutors are urging the judge to go below that, asking for just 18 to 24 months on account of the “history and personal characteristics of the defendants” and the “aberrational nature of the defendants’ conduct.”
Because, you know, Mattis graduated from Princeton and New York University Law School and was an attorney at the white-shoe law firm Pryor Cashman, and Rahman was a public-interest lawyer whose “best friend,” Obama administration intelligence official Salmah Rizvi, guaranteed the $250,000 required to release her on bail.
We no longer have equal justice under the law.
Unequal justice. AG Garland destroys J6 conservative misdemeanor trespassers & bends over for 2 privileged Leftist lawyers who feloniously tossed Molotov cocktails into a police car following George Floyd's death. Prosecutors are urging the judge to go below their own plea deal. pic.twitter.com/lnWBu3r24w

These two have been on home confinement while awaiting trial.
Trump supporters from J6 are in jail.
