In the summer of 2020, America witnessed countless acts of rioting and chaos. Radical activist groups staged protests in most major cities. These events frequently devolved into riots, which inflicted billions of dollars worth of damage to homes, businesses, and communities.
The worst of the rioting happened in Democrat-controlled cities. In Seattle, a BLM march almost ended up being a scene of horrific carnage. A man marched with over 1,000 protestors on their way to a police building. He happened to be carrying 12 Molotov cocktails, intent on burning the building to the ground. Now, three years later, he faces justice.
From Daily Wire:
Authorities sentenced a Washington man to 40 months in prison on Wednesday for his role in a plot to burn down the Seattle Police Officers Guild building…
Justin Christopher Moore, 35, of Renton, created and carried a box of 12 Molotov cocktails during a protest march of over 1,000 people toward the police building in downtown Seattle on Labor Day 2020, according to court documents.
Moore was found guilty of plotting to burn down the Seattle Police Officers Guild building. He was seen in video footage marching with other protesters while carrying Molotov cocktails. After searching his home, authorities found items used to make explosives as well as the clothing he wore on the day.
Prosecutors accused Moore of being “extremely dangerous” and that his actions “created a substantial risk of injury to numerous bystanders.” Not only did he pose a threat to the police building, but had those Molotovs gone off accidentally, Moore could have hurt many people near him.
The court sentenced him to 40 months in prison, over three years. This is only one of a few sentences given out to those responsible for the unrest in 2020. Critics have pointed out that many people were behind the looting and chaos–in many cities across America.
But it appears most of them have not been found or prosecuted. During the riots, many of the perpetrators were bailed out by Democrat donors.
- A man convicted of trying to burn down a Seattle police building was sentenced this week.
