Minimum white accountability.

According to the article, this guy has been on one Trump inspired rampage after another for the past 10 years. A minimum sentence just because he copped a plea isn't going to rehabilitate this idiot. It's just going to make him more determined. At this stage a real attitude adjustment would probably take the next 10 years of his life in prison.

I wonder if he squealed on someone?

"I wonder if he squealed on someone?"

He's so hard core I'd guess not. But you never can tell. Some of these tough guys cry like mama boys when when they finally figure out the jig is up and they're going down.

The sudden loss of hearth, home and business might have been an influence.

Seems like he must've had something to offer to get that deal considering the video.

I'm sure whatever the sentence he will consider himself a political prisoner and is not likely to change considering his past behavior.

The federal court system could never pump an extra 500+ cases through the system in reasonable time if they all went to trial. They need most of the less egregious cases to take plea deals.

He's a violent insurrectionist who got into the Capitol building while beating cops. If he's found guilty a firing squad should be in his future

"If he's found guilty a firing squad should be in his future."

Is that even legal?

He's an insurrectionist and a traitor. Constitution says to execute them and since he was part of an armed insurrection he gets a military execution.

4 years is a fair sentence considering there isn't any such thing as parole in the federal system. The best he can get is a reduction of 20% for good behavior, but it's incredibly easy to lose your good time in the federal pen. A guy that unhinged is going to do every single day.

But I wish they wouldn't have brought his family into it. His poor brother was on the First Lady Obama detail and doesn't need his name associated with his brothers misdeeds.

He shoved an officer and punched him. Maximum sentence under federal law 8 years. Meanwhile in nearby Virginia, progresssive Democrats just passed a bill reducing Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer from a felony to a misdemeanor and removing a 6 month minimum sentence requirement. So thanks tomDemocrats, if this ------- punched and shoved a Virginia officer he could get between a day and a year max.

"Senate Bill 5032 eliminates the current mandatory minimum sentence of six months in jail for assault on an officer.

It keeps the charge as a felony, but gives a judge or jury discretion to reduce it to a misdemeanor if there is no bodily injury, or the person committing the crime has a physical or mental disorder."
