Charges Dropped Against Portland Rioters

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee grouses that only about 300 people have been imprisoned for alleged participation in the Capitol Riot; she thinks it should be more like 40,000. Meanwhile, regarding the far more destructive riots that occurred literally every night for months on end in Portland,

As the Biden administration has taken the reins of the Department of Justice, the feds have dismissed dozens of charges against violent rioters in Portland, Oregon. They have dropped charges such as assault on a law enforcement officer, arson, and other violent crimes. Many have been dropped with prejudice, meaning they can’t be re-litigated in the future. According to a local news outlet, federal prosecutors have dismissed more than one-third of the pending charges from last summer’s violent protests in Portland.

More dismissals are expected. It looks like few if any Antifa or Black Lives Matter thugs will still be imprisoned a year from now for crimes committed during the riots in Portland.

The Department of Justice stepped in as riots terrorized Portland throughout the summer of 2020, and Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced he would not prosecute most riot crimes committed in Portland. … Attorney General William Barr instructed federal prosecutors to aggressively pursue rioters across the country…

But with the ascension of Biden’s handlers to power, the same type of left-wing extremists who run Portland run the federal government.

As noted at Hot Air,

This looks less like an evidentiary problem and more like a political decision by the incoming administration. One has to wonder whether the Biden administration will treat the January 6 rioters with the same charity… [A]ttempts to pick and choose enforcement like this will only bring on more violence from the fringes on both sides.

This is not a bug but a feature. Political violence is all good, from the viewpoint of Biden’s handlers.

Violence by the Right will be inflated out of proportion and hyped by the media/Democrat Party. For example, only one person died violently in the Capitol Riot, and that was the unarmed Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by the police. Yet the liberal establishment continues to exploit it aggressively.

Violence by the Left intimidates people into silence and compliance, as radicals remake America into a very different country, in which the fundamental principle of equality before the law no longer exists.
