Long Sentences for January 6 Protest

Long Sentences for January 6 Protest

George Floyd, a black man, died while resisting arrest from white police officers.  In his name protests broke out all over the country in every major city, resulting in all out riots in all of them.  Public, private property burned.

And no charges were ever filed.  Then we come to January 6, 2021.  They called that protest an 'Insurrection', where a few windows were broken, nothing burned but one unarmed white protestor was shot by a black D.C. police officer and nothing.  The officer is cleared, not charged like in the George Floyd case.

What I'm saying is I am sick and fucking tired of this shit.

"(CNN) — A federal judge handed down hefty sentences against two members of the Proud Boys for their role in attacking the Capitol on January 6, 2021, one who broke open a window to the building and another who took over the leadership role of the group that day.

"Their sentences, both among the longest yet of the over 1,000 people charged as part of the riot, are emblematic of how judges are working to separate key figures who furthered the violence that day from those who were swept up in the crowd.

"The first man to be sentenced Friday, Dominic Pezzola, was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Pezzola smashed through a window to the US Capitol with a police riot shield on January 6, allowing the first wave of rioters to storm the building as members of Congress were being evacuated. Pezzola quickly became a symbol of the violence that day.

"Ethan Nordean, a Proud Boy from Washington State who took over leading the group after longtime Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio was arrested on his way to Washington, DC, days before the January 6 riot, was sentenced to 18 years in prison. "
