I'm surprised someone posted this on here. This one is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too easy to expose Liberal policies and their negative ramifications. I mean, at least make it hard. Don't just give it out like candy.

With trumppers doing what they can to kill these poor people who can blame them?

Unless there's a cop with a gun present some people simply refuse to wear a mask no matter how high the covid rates.

I can guarantee you that retailers in Smalltown, Texas where I live feel safe. LA, SF and NYC? Not so much.

Why? Cause if someone breaks in with a gun they can have a shootout?

What a "safe" feeling.

#11 your first link sites a guy "who joined in" with rioters who had already set a building ablaze.

So here you are waffling between trying to blame this violence on a RW provocateur on the one hand and trying to excuse and justify the violence on the other hand.

Did you follow Kamala's advice and donate to these RW scum bail fund?

It didn't say retailers, stupid. It said "retail workers". There is a distinction. Retail workers work in fear of armed customers, and probably fear their armed employers as well.

You're stretching.

Probably because you know it's from two years of righties exercising their freedumz by refusing to wear masks and forcing their way into establishments to abuse employees who are just doing their jobs.

You've been ------------ on this topic multiple times. Remind us again how much of the problems you lay at the feet of provocateurs? 60%? 70%? Shall we go to the conviction tote board??

-#16. I wasn't quoting Cotton. Harris made the plea all on her own and no way she does that for right wing provocateurs.

Your just pissed off because you don't like being called out for supporting violent rioters who burned down buildings, killed more than a dozen people and injured over 1000 police officers.

She probably wasn't aware of the high percentage of RW anarchists and provocateurs.

What would you put the percentage at? 70%? 80%?

Why are you upset at protests that were 93% peaceful, while not upset at a protest that was 100% violent?

No one died. There was no violence and no confrontation between the Partiers,Tories and the British soldiers garrisoned in Boston. He was the only one person was arrested for the Boston Tea Party.

If you are going to go after righties, at least know something about the topic, because you look like an idiot.

Because he's a ----------- moron who supports 1/6 but is too big a ----- to admit it.

So he makes absurd arguments and convinces himself he's fooling people.

You can point to one. 7% of the radical left riots are to be ignored?

"You can point to one. "

"One" that was 100% violent.

At least have the intellectual honesty to finish the sentence. According to your scorecard, 1/6 was 100% violent.

Agreed?

No not at all. In fact all lawbreakers should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That said, what percentage of the violence came from anarchists and provocateurs?

Willowby, why are you running away from a fair question?

#33 | Posted by Danforth at 2022-06-29 12:13 AM | Reply

There are inevitably some huge error bars on any answer to that question.

What percentage of 1/6 unlawful entrants or however else the participants might be described were motivated by Trump's conspiracy to overturn the election?

I'd say no less than 90%.

And this is substantiated by literally hundreds of guilty pleas.

Interesting question. I don't think there are simple answers. In that context there are many paths to explore.

Guilty pleas don't say a lot to me. A 90% +/- rate is not atypical.

I look at the dismissals, acquittals and sentences. Dismissals say "as a matter of law no crime was committed." That's a powerful statement. It says that under no factual scenario alleged could a criminal violation of law been committed. To memory, of the hundreds of disposed cases only a few have been dismissed on very narrow grounds. By one judge, joined by no others given the opportunity.

Acquittals say a jury doesn't think the evidence presented, i.e. the factual scenario, proves beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime was committed. Again, my memory, there have only been a few trials. Most have resulted in convictions. There have been a few acquittals, again on narrow grounds, with some split verdicts. Guilty on this acquitted on that.

Sentencing to me is most informative of the question "anarchists or provocateurs." So far, my sense is the courts are not seeing those types. I think the courts are mostly seeing people caught up in mob mentality, momentary idiots. Thus, some consider light punishment. Then I see significant, year plus, incarcerations plus significant post supervision for more egregious conduct.

What has not been seen is the consequences of the conduct of those alleged to be "anarchists and provocateurs" See i.e. seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

I'm more interested in those dispositions.
