Once upon a time, our justice system did not tolerate blatant attempts to unravel the fabric of society.
Generally speaking and with few exceptions, people who failed to ‘peaceably assemble’ and instead gathered for the sole purpose of causing damage and creating mayhem were not looked upon favorably by cops, prosecutors, and courts.
But those days are over.
Like practically all of our institutions, far-left Marxists have taken over city councils, mayorships, and prosecutor’s offices throughout our country but especially in our largest cities.
Society-destroying activities like rioting and looting and attacking cops are no longer prosecuted, for the most part, which, of course, only leads to more mayhem.
An assessment Friday in an intelligence report that we get sums all of this up in a nutshell:
On Wednesday, Tyvarh Nicholson pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of possessing an unregistered destructive device. Nicholson was charged after allegedly throwing Molotov cocktails at law enforcement during George Floyd riots in downtown Erie, Pennsylvania in May 2020. Nicholson could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both. His plea and pending conviction, however, are likely a drop in the bucket in comparison to the number of Far Left activists and Antifa militants involved in the 2020 to early 2021 riots.
A copious amount of charges have been dropped against suspects at both the federal and state levels. In Portland, Oregon alone, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt (D) rejected over 540 criminal cases during 2020 alone in 'the interest of justice.' Schmidt gained the spotlight after announcing his office would only prosecute those arrested if there was evidence of 'deliberate property damage, theft, or threat of force' during the Floyd riots. According to reports, his office only prosecuted 47 felonies associated with the riots by August 2020. A number of known Antifa militants continue to be arrested for violent crimes and property destruction, only to be released without bail or without any charges filed.
For instance, Darby Marshall Howard was arrested in March 2021 for criminal mischief and resisting arrest during an Antifa direct action in solidarity with 'Stop Line 3' protests in Minnesota. The Portland Police Bureau released him without bail and federal law enforcement arrested him hours later while attempting to breach the doors of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and assaulting an officer. The Multnomah County Jail released him again without bail that day and Howard joined Antifa militants later that night in an attempt to burn down the courthouse.
District attorneys have executed similar low prosecution campaigns in cities such as New York City, New York and St. Louis, Missouri. According to reports, Bronx District Attorney Darcell Clark (D), Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance (D), and St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner (D) have all dismissed hundreds of charges associated with the 2020 riots. The New York City Police Department (NYPD) arrested 445 people in Manhattan in May and June 2020 alone during the riots. In Total, 73 received only misdemeanor convictions with no jail time and 222 charges were dropped entirely.
Make no mistake, this is why crime is escalating and is NOT going to abate anytime soon.
What’s more, this is not happening by accident; it’s by design. The left can’t effect their revolution if American society is stable, prosperous, and conducive to liberty and freedom.
Brace yourselves, readers, and get ready for the storm that’s coming.
