BLM Arson Suspects Get Controversial Plea Deal

( – A recent sentencing hearing for two Black Lives Matter rioters from Atlanta has conservatives complaining that there is a separate standard being applied to leftist agitators or a two-tiered system of justice.

Natalia Hanna White and Chisom Kingston got an unbelievable deal in exchange for a guilty plea to charges of arson in the first degree. Each will have to pay just a $500 fine and complete 150 hours of community service. They’ll also both be on probation for five years. A third individual, John Wesley Wade, has yet to have his case completed.

In Georgia, state laws have a maximum penalty of twenty years and/or a $50,000 fine for first-degree arson.

Commentators pointed out that burning down a Wendy’s did more than $500 in damages. They also compared the years behind bars inflicted on some January 6th defendants and the case of Douglas Mackey, who is currently appealing a conviction for posting a joke meme that suggested voters could skip the line and phone in their vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Mackey was recently granted the right to stay out of jail while his case is on appeal, should he lose his appeal he’ll face seven months behind bars for the high crime of posting a joke on the internet.

Other commentators pointed out that former President Donald Trump is facing an indictment in Georgia for making a phone call where he asked if there might have been more votes for him yet to be counted in the aftermath of the 2020 election. If convicted, Trump faces years behind bars and he didn’t cause any property damage or risk the lives of individuals by setting a building on fire.

Frequent firebrand Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-SC) pointed out that defendants from January 6 have been locked up for nonviolent offenses, including some who didn’t even enter the Capitol, and suggested that the “scales of justice” are so far out of whack when compared to a $500 fine for first-degree arson they’ve fallen off completely.
