Federal arrests and charges against rioters has begun

It looks as if some of the arsonists/looters/rioters will be paying for their crimes. At least, they are being arrested, and we can hope that they won’t be let off with a slap on the hand.

The Department of Justice has filed what looks to be the first tranche of charges against violent antifa protesters from coast-to-coast following weeks of rioting following the killing of George Floyd by police. As Antifa itself would say, “it’s going down.”

From La Mesa, Calif., Minneapolis, Austin, and Dallas to Baton Rouge, Philly, St. Paul, and Tacoma, Wash., more than 50 people have been indicted on various charges.

Conspicuously absent in this wave of indictments is anyone from Portland, Ore., arguably the area most seeded with members of the group designated as domestic terrorists by the Trump Administration…

No one from Seattle’s black bloc-outfitted terrorists or the Republic of CHAZ was named in these indictments, either…

Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorneys across the nation charged suspects for more than 40 violent crimes, which CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge put out on Twitter.

Among the crimes being pursued are:

  • Crossing state lines for purposes of riot
  • Throwing Molotov cocktails
  • Torching cop cars
  • Looting gun stores and pharmacies
  • Online threats against cops
  • Arson
  • Shining lasers in eyes of police helicopter pilots
  • Bringing guns to a riot

I was glad to see this:

The far-left attorneys accused of a potentially-deadly Molotov cocktail attack on an NYPD cruiser during a “peaceful” George Floyd riot have now been charged.

Two indictments were returned in federal court on Thursday, charging three defendants with the use of explosives, arson, use of explosives to commit a felony, arson conspiracy, use of a destructive device, civil disorder, and making or possessing a destructive device, the Department of Justice announced in a press release

Authorities say an NYPD surveillance camera captured Urooj Rahman tossing a Molotov cocktail through a broken window of a police cruiser just before 1 a.m. local time on the night of May 29. Rahman then jumped into a van and attempted to flee the scene. Cops pursued the vehicle and apprehended both Urooj Rahman and co-defendant Colinford Mattis. Inside the vehicle, police discovered additional components for a Molotov cocktail, a lighter, and a gasoline container. 

Police say a witness recorded the third co-defendant, Samantha Shader, igniting a Molotov cocktail before tossing it inside an NYPD vehicle that was occupied by four NYPD officers. The blast shattered two of the car’s windows and the officers arrested Shader as she attempted to flee the scene. 

A district court judge originally granted the bail request of the two attorneys, Mattis and Rahman, on the condition that the lawyers wear GPS monitors and surrender all travel documents.

Salmah Rizvi, a former Obama administration official in both the State and Defense Departments, guaranteed the bail of Urooj Rahman, calling the bomb-throwing lawyer her “best friend.” But an appeals court quickly reversed the bail decision and ordered the two attorneys back to jail. 

If convicted on all charges, the three defendants face potential sentences of up to life imprisonment.

    I hate these people. And, it makes me furious when they get away with stuff like this. It would have helped if they had kept a lot of those in prison or put them up against a wall and shot back in the 60’s. Instead they are teaching and leading stuff like this.

      Farther back in history … If they hadn’t brought Nazi criminals back to America after WW2, and seeded them in our colleges/univ and in our govt (not just the nuclear scientists).

    Ahhhh yes, wait until these little Antifas/rioters get that first day in Federal prison, let’s see how long that ‘I’m fighting the black man’s battle’ BS lasts them. Between the angry black prisoners who might be a bit upset about the cultural usurpers daring to see them as incapable of fighting their own battles, the white supremacist prisoners who’ll see them as race traitors and the various Latinex groups who’ll see everything wrong with them they’re going to have a jolly old time. I’m not even getting into the guards impressions..These toads had better make it rain cigarettes.

    We’ve had some protests in our 11-thousand-people big city, they were small and definitely non-violent. Most folks are just trying to live and let live. People here are law-abiding but also know that if they burn the stores they’re gonna have to travel 40 miles to shop. Also many of the people here know the people who own and work in these stores, they live in the community.

    Police and sheriff’s department have made it known they won’t abide any foreign inspired rioting, it’ll be quickly and effectively dealt with and the local pols and magistrate will support them fully.

    I’m reminded of Abbie Hoffman and the Chicago 7. Hope they get put in Attica.

    Looks like Atlanta is burning now. Rioters won’t let the fire department in after setting a Wendy’s ablaze because a black thug who was passed out drunk in the drive through, failed a sobriety test, fought with officers, took one of the officers tasers, broke away and turned around to face the officers after breaking away was shot and killed.

    Mad mad world.

    Wish I could share your optimism. Too many bad memories of the earlier time, memories buried deep for decades until recently. The Reverend – not Doctor – Martin Luther King was always remembered fondly, understanding him to be a man of God.

    Some names are never forgotten, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn being just two of many.
    After all they did, and all the people they killed, and they walk free today, representing the finest in university gentility.

    So one now anticipates the future memories of her GKids remembering these names of today as they approach their Golden Years and watch today’s names being frespected members of the future society.
