The U.S. Department of Justice is now on the hot seat again after a very controversial verdict as the reputation of the Government’s branch has been thoroughly criticized.
Judge Trevor McFadden, questioned whether alleged Capitol rioters are being treated fairly compared to other rioters.
McFadden who was appointed by former President Trump suggested that the rioters were being treated harsher than rioters in D.C. last year following the murder of George Floyd.
U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden has released a statement via CNN where he said, “The US Attorney’s Office would have more credibility if it was even-handed in its concern about riots and mobs in the city that’s because looters and rioters decided the law did not apply to them.”
Rejecting the recommendation of prosecutors wanted Doyle to be sentenced to two months of house arrest. McFadden instead fined her $3,000, with an additional $500 to cover damages to the Capitol as Doyle have entered the Capitol through a broken window and spent 24 minutes inside the building.
Previously, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued a withering letter last summer to federal officials over their refusal to prosecute cases from the riots.
McFadden has scolded defendant Danielle Doyle, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for unlawfully protesting at the Capitol.
Doyle has previously said, “I love this country, So many people came here to represent things that were important to us but in the blink of an eye, all of those things were overshadowed. For that, I’m sorry, because it overshadowed the things that were good.”
“You were acting like those looters and rioters who attacked our city last year, You participated in a shameful event, a national embarrassment that, like last year’s riots, made us feel less safe and less confident that our country could be governed by democratic values and not mob rule,” McFadden said.
“Since May 30, the Metropolitan Police Department has submitted 63 affidavits in support of arrest and search warrants directly related to criminal activities conducted under the guise of First Amendment assemblies, Twenty-eight of these warrants have been declined, while another 24 are will [sic] pending review by your office. This mirrors a disturbing pattern we have also identified in homicide cases, where our records reveal 18 warrants that are currently pending with your office awaiting action.” the Mayor wrote.
This has been very controversial. If Biden did not fraud the elections, riots would never occur in the first place.
