U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden noted that prosecutors have been treating the Jan. 6th rioters who’d rioted for a single day significantly harsher than the Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters who’d rioted for an entire summer and longer.
The judge specifically “questioned why federal prosecutors had not brought more cases against those accused in 2020 summertime protests, reading out statistics on riot cases in the nation’s capital that were not prosecuted,” according to the Associated Press.
He also accused the D.C. prosecutors who were present in his courtroom that day of having fallen prey to the same inconsistency.
“I think the U.S. attorney would have more credibility if it was even-handed in its concern about riots and mobs in this city,” McFadden said.
……And so, frustrated by this inconsistency, the judge ultimately chose on Friday to buck the prosecution’s demand that Doyle be sentenced to months of house arrest and instead sentenced her to just probation — the exact same sentence granted to many of the so-called “peaceful protesters” from last year.
Or, rather, the “peaceful protesters” who hadn’t just had their charges outright dropped.
……All this comes as the Jan. 6th rioters who still remain locked up continue to raise concerns about the allegedly brutal treatment they’re facing behind bars.
American political prisoners have been held for more than 8 months in solitary confinement in 7X10 cells for 23 hours a day. These people have not been convicted of any crimes, they are being held in “pretrial detention” for trespassing the capitol halls of corruption on 6 January 2021. Their trials have not been set. They have been denied bail. They are not allowed to meet with lawyers in private. They have one hour a day for “exercise”, showers, and phone calls. They have been denied due process.
One of them died awaiting trial.
Yet, the Antifa/BLM goons responsible for the destruction of neighborhoods, businesses, police stations, and courthouses, have skated out of any legal consequences for their crimes. The Feds refuse to prosecute.
