Acting U.S. Attorney: We’ve Charged 150 Cases, Assisted with ‘Hundreds’ of Local Cases on Recent Violence

We've Charged 150 Cases, Assisted with 'Hundreds' of Local Cases ...

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin said that U.S. attorney’s offices have charged 150 cases related to property destruction and other crimes, and there have been hundreds of other cases brought on local charges through federal assistance with local officials in relation to recent violence in the country.

Sherwin said, “[P]eople can’t unilaterally decide what is right and what is wrong. And if those people do make that decision on their own and take the law into their own hands, the law will come after them and the United States will use federal resources to charge you if you’re inciting violence or destroying these monuments. That being said, under the leadership of President Trump, and the direction of the attorney general, the United States attorney’s offices across the United States have charged, to date, 150 federal cases related to, not only the destruction of federal property, but also a litany of other crimes that are really — have been lost in the shuffle.”

  1. How many will have charges dismissed or sentences reduced by commie judges? From the article I get the sense most charges are state charges. Seeing how most, if not all, of the rioting, looting, burning happened in commie states, I won't be surprised most of these miscreants get a slap on the wrist.

    Larry at Virtual Mirage spoke of a project he had done which tracked offender from arrest to sentencing. Most offenders walked with greatly reduced sentences or a few months of probation. Very demoralizing. And dangerous because these thugs are still on the streets.
