New York City was one of many American cities that suffered major rioting and damage following the George Floyd incident in May.
City blocks were burned. Businesses were looted and destroyed. Residents were threatened and hurt.
And NYPD officers were targeted.
In fact, a couple of left-wing lawyers decided to make a Molotov cocktail and throw it into an NYPD vehicle.
Making and deploying explosives is a big time felony, federal and state.
But because these two were ‘fighting on behalf of social justice,’ life in prison is now off the table.
Federal prosecutors filed paperwork confirming that the two attorneys who allegedly threw a 'Molotov cocktail' into a squad car have been offered deals to reduce their sentences.
Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis were facing potential life sentences for seven charges; among them use of explosives, arson, and conspiracy. On May 29, the pair allegedly made an incendiary device from a bottle of beer, then threw it into a squad car during one of many riots that occurred after the death of George Floyd.
The two were caught on a surveillance camera, with Rahman purportedly holding the bottle in her hand just before the attack. Authorities later say they discovered another unused firebomb in the same vehicle on that video.
The two lawyers were pursued and arrested but pled not guilty. Their plea was not based on innocence but an argument that they were wrongly charged and being used as an example by the same people they were protesting. The details of the February 11 plea deal have not been released.
How do you go from facing life in prison for using explosives in an American city against cops to a ‘plea deal?’
Easy. Your guy wins the election and the Justice Department instantly becomes another extension of Democratic political power.
Nothing says ‘please, riot again with deadly weapons’ quite like, ‘How’d you like a get out of jail free card?’
