Two New York Attorneys Arrested For Throwing Molotov Cocktail At Police [Updated]

downloadYesterday we discussed the four arrests associated with two attacks on New York police officers using Molotov cocktails.  It is now being reported that one of the defendants arrested, Colinford Mattis, 32, is a furloughed Pryor Cashman associate.  Mattis is a graduate of New York University and Princeton University. He was reportedly arrested with a second attorney in the attack.  Mattis is accused of driving a van and passenger Urooj Rahman, 31, threw a Molotov cocktail. Rahman is reportedly a human rights lawyer but also recently lost her job. Update: The FBI now says that the two defendants sought to pass out Molotov cocktails.

An NYPD surveillance camera reportedly recorded Rahman throwing the device toward a NYPD vehicle in Fort Greene.  A video showed her getting out of a tan 2015 Chrysler Town and Country minivan driven by Mattis and moving toward the patrol car. She was observed lighting a fuse on a Bud Light beer bottle and throwing it through a broken window.  It exploded inside of the vehicle and the two fled.

The police also have a picture of Rahman with the explosive:

The FBI statement included the following description:

“Officers pursued the minivan and arrested Rahman and Mattis, who was the vehicle’s driver.  The NYPD recovered several precursor items used to build Molotov Cocktails, including a lighter, a bottle filled with toilet paper and a liquid suspected to be gasoline in the vicinity of the passenger seat and a gasoline tank in the rear of the vehicle.”

They are now charged with causing damage by fire and explosives to a police vehicle. If convicted, each of them faces up to 20 years behind bars. There is a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years.

The specific provision charged appears to be 18 U.S.C. 844 (i):

“Whoever maliciously damages or destroys, or attempts to damage or destroy, by means of fire or an explosive, any building, vehicle, or other real or personal property used in interstate or foreign commerce or in any activity affecting interstate or foreign commerce shall be imprisoned for not less than 5 years and not more than 20 years, fined under this title, or both;  and if personal injury results to any person, including any public safety officer performing duties as a direct or proximate result of conduct prohibited by this subsection, shall be imprisoned for not less than 7 years and not more than 40 years, fined under this title, or both;  and if death results to any person, including any public safety officer performing duties as a direct or proximate result of conduct prohibited by this subsection, shall also be subject to imprisonment for any term of years, or to the death penalty or to life imprisonment.”

Unlike Samantha Shader’s case discussed yesterday, the vehicle was unoccupied.  However, the device did explode (unlike Shader’s Molotov cocktail). Still, Shader is looking at more serious charges of attempted murder. I would expect that additional charges might be sought now that authorities are saying that they were trying to distribute the Molotov cocktails.   The criminal complaint now includes the allegations that “Rahman attempted to distribute Molotov cocktails to the witness and others so that those individuals could likewise use the incendiary devices in furtherance of more destruction and violence.”  The use of the federal system is also likely to produce a longer sentence in a case of this kind, particularly if they can show a broader conspiracy or interstate movements or communications.

The new allegation reflects premeditation and planning to unleash multiple fire bombings. The FBI is likely looking at the ownership of the van and anyone who may have rendered material support.  The case is framed perfectly as a test case of the Administration treating defendants as domestic terrorists under the definition in subsection 5 of 18 U.S.C. 2331:

The term “domestic terrorism” means activities that—

(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;

(B) appear to be intended—(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

If the Justice Department is looking for a way to reframe cases as domestic terrorism without dealing with the dubious effort to define Antifa as a “foreign terrorist organization” under the State Department regulations, this may be the right case at the right time from their perspective.  For Mattis and Rahman, the consequences of such a reframing would obviously magnify the already serious allegations that they are facing.

Pryor Cashman’s website described Colinford Mattis, 32, as a member of the firm’s Corporate Group. That reported entry was deleted after the media learned of the connection.

However, two references remain on site.  One describes the corporate team that worked on a deal to sell a $319 million stake in AccorHotels. Another entry refers to Mattis as being on the team that launched brand management platform WHP Global on the acquisition of legacy women’s fashion brand Anne Klein.

According to Pryor Cashman managing partner Ronald Shechtman, Mattis has been on furlough since April due to the pandemic.  He said that Mattis’ employment status will be reviewed.  Given the serious federal criminal charges, a review may be in order.

Mattis graduated from New York University School of Law in 2016 and received his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University. He was also previously employed as an associate at Holland & Knight.  Rahman was just admitted to the New York bar in June 2019 after graduating from Fordham University School of Law.

  1. The ones blame President Trump..Did you Blame Pres. Obama for ,Ferguson Uprising Ferguson Riots in Missouri beginning on August 10, 2014, I did not think so. We all have Rights to Protest but when comes to RIOTS , burning your own community EVERY ONE SHOULD CONDEMN IT. Peace in the US and World.

  2. Video: twitter.com/nycsouthpaw/status/1267473508944281604

    Description: “[I] keep coming back to this video where a white protestor hammering the sidewalk cement into throwable chunks is seized by other demonstrators and delivered to the line of police officers.”

    Some people are committing crimes, but many protesters are trying to stop them. There are a lot of videos like this: protesters trying to prevent others from destroying property, protesters protecting people (including protesters protecting police from being attacked), … As we condemn the criminal actions, let’s also laud the peaceful and sometimes protective actions from a much larger number of people.

  3. A column from Pres. Obama today:
    https://medium.com/@BarackObama/how-to-make-this-moment-the-turning-point-for-real-change-9fa209806067

    As I wrote earlier, if we had a competent president right now, he’d have already addressed the nation, attempting to reduce tensions and direct people’s energy to effective peaceful actions, as Obama does in that column. Instead, Trump hunkers in the WH afraid, posting partisan, antagonistic, self-congratulatory, and sometimes-false tweets.

    Philip Rucker: “Trump and advisers calculated that he shouldn’t speak to the nation because he had nothing to say, no tangible policy or action to announce, nor did he feel an urgent motivation to try to bring people together. So he let his tweets speak for themselves.”
    msn.com/en-us/news/politics/as-cities-burned-trump-stayed-silent-%E2%80%94-other-than-tweeting-fuel-on-the-fire/ar-BB14QV9P

    Trump is unfit. May he be soundly defeated in November.

    1. BO had 8 years to try to implement change and bring people together. Instead, he created racial divide.

      1. Obama implemented a variety of changes, some of which were rolled back by Trump. As a simple example, Obama created a pandemic response team as part of the National Security Council. Bolton disbanded it with Trump’s OK, and now over 105,000 Americans are dead and many more are physically and/or financially harmed by Trump’s inept response.

        If you want to focus only on what Obama did re: criminal justice reform, you can find that on the archived website: obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/issues/criminal-justice-reform

        The racial divides in our country precede Obama. Racism contributed to Trump et al’s ridiculous birther conspiracy theory. Just what are you taking as evidence for your belief that “[Obama] created racial divide”? And what — if anything — do you believe Trump is doing to heal it?

        1. Committ – Trump restructured the team. People are dead because people like Cuomo forced Chicom virus patients into assisted living homes. NYC is a mess. 1/3 of the deaths are from NY and CA

          1. You’ve said that you’re a teacher.
            I’ve also worked as a teacher.
            A good teacher generally chooses to use accurate language (unless that language is too hard for students to understand): the virus is SARS-CoV-2, and the disease is COVID-19.

            You claim “Trump restructured the team.” Keep in mind that I very explicitly referred to a pandemic response team **within the National Security Council**. Is there anything I can say to convince you that your claim is false — any evidence at all that would convince you that Trump removed the team from the NSC? Because if your answer is “no,” then your mind is closed to evidence. If your answer is “yes, I can be convinced if you provide ___,” then fill in the blank with what kind of evidence you’ll accept.

            Cuomo made mistakes as well. But if you’re suggesting that Trump didn’t ALSO make serious mistakes, you’re ignoring all of the evidence to the contrary.

            Are you open to considering how Trump’s incompetence contributed to the spread of this disease in the U.S.? If not, then I won’t waste time trying to discuss it with you.

            1. Committ – I am open to discussing how the Chicoms hid the information on the virus and how WHO sad it was not human to human based on false information from the Chicoms. I am open to discussing keeping Wuhan open during a major festival making more people sick. I am open to discussing sending Chinese to the US without warning us that they had a biohazard loose in the country.

              1. So you can’t even bring yourself to say “No, nothing will change my mind” or “Yes, if you produce the evidence I specify, I’ll change my mind.”

                Closed minds aren’t good for the country. And it’s especially disturbing that you’ve said you’re a teacher, but seem unwilling to learn things that challenge your beliefs. How on earth do you help your students keep an open mind if you won’t do it yourself?

                China made plenty of mistakes. But I want to remind you that Trump **lauded**
                China for its response:

                For example, on Jan. 24, he said:
                “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well.”

                On Feb. 7, he said:
                “I just spoke to President Xi last night, and, you know, we’re working on the — the problem, the virus. It’s a — it’s a very tough situation. But I think he’s going to handle it. I think he’s handled it really well.” and “Late last night, I had a very good talk with President Xi, and we talked about — mostly about the coronavirus. They’re working really hard, and I think they are doing a very professional job. … I think they’re doing a very good job.”

                On Feb. 13, he said:
                “I think they’ve handled it professionally”

                Keep in mind that we already knew about the virus at that point, and while Trump banned U.S. travel to visitors from China, he did **nothing** to prevent the spread from the 40,000 Americans and greencard holders returning to the U.S. from China: no attempt to test them, didn’t ask them to self-quarantine, …

                He’s unfit. Stop trying to deflect. I’m not saying that he’s the sole problem in the world. He isn’t. But his incompetence is a huge problem. Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away.

                1. The 12:20 comment above came from me; when I clicked to add my name, the system instead posted the comment without it.

                2. Anonymous – you set your parameters, I set mine. I do not have to accept your debate question(s). It is legitimate to propose an alternative.

                  1. The thing is: you made a false claim, and when I asked you if there was any way to convince you that **your** own claim was false, you wouldn’t answer. So you proposed an alternative, and I was willing to discuss your alternative, but you aren’t willing to dig in on what you yourself introduced.

                    I agree that you don’t have to be open to changing your mind. Personally, I always try to be open to changing my mind if there’s good evidence (e.g., accurate and not cherrypicked) for it. And as a former teacher, I think it’s really important for teachers to be willing to change their minds and to help students be willing to do so too.

                    1. Committ – as the student, I think it is important that you admit your original error and admit I was right. That will solve a lot of bandwidth.

                  2. You say “I think it is important that you admit your original error and admit I was right.”

                    If you think I said something false, simply quote it and provide evidence that it’s false. If your evidence is valid (e.g., not cherrypicked, not misrepresenting what I said), I’ll have no problem admitting I was wrong. Up to you whether you’ll do it.

                    1. “If you think I said something false, simply quote it and provide evidence that it’s false.”

                      We are still waiting for cthd’s in context quotes that proves Flynn’s guilt. That he had the proof was a lie still not corrected and now he is playing the same game again.

            2. ” Is there anything I can say to convince you that your claim is false ”

              This is disingenuous provided by one that doesn’t have complete understanding of the facts.

              When it came to Flynn’s conviction CTHD said he was guilty based on a lie. When asked to produce the lie CTHD danced around in many posts to many posters but could never produce the words. He is a charlatan that uses volume instead of fact.

        2. It’s amazing how you can lay the actions of blatantly organized communist saboteurs and feral subhumans at the feet of Donald Trump. It’s almost like you are a shill, a paid agent that goes around comment on news sites to capitalize on this staged event.

          Well let me help you out, JDIF: This is indeed Trumps fault, because instead of declaring non-whites to be non-citizens and deporting you all, he allowed you stay. America will never be MAGA in the same way a cancer patient will never be well until the foreign diseases and ingrown tumors are gone. So instead, he pandered to creatures too stupid to exist without a welfare state, and his reward was a coast-to-coast chimpout instigated by the synagogue of satan, and we humans pay the price.

          Yes, it is Trump’s fault; are you happy now?

      2. Obama didn’t even have the stones to stand up to the Teacher’s Unions and get school vouchers to get black kids out of failed schools. What a nothing burger.

        1. School finance is properly a state and local responsibility. The best thing the federal authorities can do is to quit with their officious interference, which means to shut down the federal Department of Education after billeting the statistical collection services in the Labor Department and adding a consumer protection function to the Federal Trade Commission’s book of business. Obama would never advocate that.

      3. Yep, and he had millions of our cool cars for poor people CRUSHED after destroying the engines so the middle class could get a free 4 grand and a new car.
        Kill the poor is Obama’s legacy.

    2. And let’s not forget, Mattis could have been Obama’s son, many times over in fact, than Trayvon Martin ever could have fit that bill.

      1. Trayvon Martin was rather a handful for the pick-up team looking after him. Cannot imagine how BO and Mooch would approach such a problem.

    3. What a wildly partisan gut CTHD is. If he were more intelligent then perhaps he could make a point worth listening to.

    4. if we had a competent president he would order a nationwide sweeping arrests of ANTIFA leaders under RICO law violations and seize assets of other organizations funding their illegal criminal arson and racketeering operations like BLM. then they can have fair trials in the communities where they burned things to the ground. we’ll see how sympathetic juries really are in reality to this lawless sedition and racketeering

      then we can see how committed they are to their agenda of fomenting revolution

      the next step, if the want to keep it up, will be treating them like we do terrorists in other countries

      if it’s necessary to begin nationwide arrests of other seditionists, i’m all for it. seems like ten thousand trouble makers would be a good start. the richer the targets the better, not just a bunch of rock chuckers. let’s aim first at the suits

      prepare florence adx for an influx of would be revolutionaries. they got plenty of room

    5. Looks like you didn’t actually understand Obama’s column. He rightly points out that local LE are the product of local, not national, politics.

    6. ex pres B. O. blames police unions. among others.

      Anti-labor Obama implies cops unions are at fault. perhaps the cops are the only workers who don’t matter to Dems.?

      A pathetic stance for a supposed champion of labor, seems to me

      when a Democrat politico says “build momentum for change” he just means “vote for us and we’ll fix everything” even though when they get their chance, which is pretty often, they never seem to fix much, do they.

  4. Let’s hope they’ll make decent jailhouse lawyers. Probably not, though: no capacity for reasoning.

    1. Your comment advocates lawlessness.
      Shame on you.
      They should be dealt with in accordance with our laws.

  5. “… we have identified at least 50 separate incidents where journalists have been attacked by law enforcement. In these examples journalists have been shot with rubber bullets, targeted with stun grenades, tear gassed, physically attacked, pepper sprayed and arrested.
    “Although in some incidents it is possible the journalists were hit or affected accidentally, in the majority of the cases we have recorded the journalists are clearly identifiable as press, and it is clear that they are being deliberately targeted. This pattern of violence against journalists is replicated in several cities, but appears most intense in Minneapolis. …”
    bellingcat.com/news/americas/2020/05/31/us-law-enforcement-are-deliberately-targeting-journalists-during-george-floyd-protests/

    I hope that these police will face consequences for targeting the press.

    I also have to wonder how much Trump’s repeatedly calling the press “the enemy of the people” contributes to these acts. Putin must be thrilled by the extent to which Trump’s election — with Russia’s help — is harming the U.S.

    If we had a competent president right now, he’d have already addressed the nation, attempting to reduce tensions. Instead, he hunkers in the WH afraid. Philip Rucker: “Trump and advisers calculated that he shouldn’t speak to the nation because he had nothing to say, no tangible policy or action to announce, nor did he feel an urgent motivation to try to bring people together. So he let his [partisan and antagonistic] tweets speak for themselves.”

    Meanwhile, COVID-19 deaths are now in excess of 105,000. Trump is likely happy that the protests are taking attention away from his incompetent response.

    1. The Microsoft News / MSN link you quote is a relay from a Wash Po article., which explains its blatant bias against the administration. CNN yesterday interviewing a prominent Black official or attorney (I didn’t catch his name and credentials), asked the rhetorical question that went something like the following, “…. don’t you think that the killing of Floyd George is a strong indicator that the United States still has system racism widely throughout the white population…” No… the question does not follow from the facts of the situation… the cop involved was clearly a bad cop, while the two sidekick cops with him clearly stood by and watched the horrible despicable acts. You can’t extrapolate from these bad cops to the entire population of the United States… it is pure nonsense and CNN is stoking the fires and trying to create the news not report on the news. Yes there is a problem that these bad cops were allowed to have badges and to even be involved in this horrendous act in the first place. That does not allow one to extrapolate to suggest the entire population is racist.

      1. The cop standing right next to Derek Chauvin the whole time was Asian (Hmong) not white. Fake news CNN conveniently ignores that fact.

        1. Jessie, you got it right. One can’t trust the news because the news media of today bend it to their needs. Then purveyer’s of nonsense like CTHD above copy the nonsense as if it were true. Remember when the Steele Dossier came out and all the media lies surrounding that dossier? Fake news and Fake arguments that people use on a continuous basis including fake arguments to convict Flynn while claiming they have the proof but never providing it.

          If jounalists are being abused that is worthy of investigation, but very few “journalists” do investigations today. Instead they spin the news so now when something is important who knows if they should be believed.

          I’d love to see the actual complaints which would have been filed by journalists if they were abused. Then we could read the police response and judge for ourselves, but note we don’t see any of the actual complaints of those 50 journalists.

      2. I’m not sure what you consider “bias” in the story.

        Re: your comment that “You can’t extrapolate from these bad cops to the entire population of the United States,” I haven’t seen anyone extrapolating from these 4 cops (Chauvin, Thao, Kueng and Lane). Everyone I’ve seen discussing systemic racism in policing is drawing on a much broader set of policing incidents. And I haven’t seen anyone “suggest the entire population is racist.” The term “systemic racism” doesn’t imply that everyone is racist.

  6. It starts within the family. Our culture is sick because families are no longer healthy. American’s today relish their individuality (and internet anonymity) and deify their ego. The majority of chronic medical illnesses are self-inflicted. Aberrant individuals should be outliers not the norm. All societal problems (e.g. tribalism of conservatives vs liberals, whites vs blacks, blacks vs black, etc) can be traced back to the family.

    When a society makes family a priority, the result is healthy relationships, whole community and vigorous offspring.

    2207 The family is the original cell of social life. It is the natural society in which husband and wife are called to give themselves in love and in the gift of life. Authority, stability, and a life of relationships within the family constitute the foundations for freedom, security, and fraternity within society. The family is the community in which, from childhood, one can learn moral values, begin to honor God, and make good use of freedom. Family life is an initiation into life in society.

    2208 The family should live in such a way that its members learn to care and take responsibility for the young, the old, the sick, the handicapped, and the poor. There are many families who are at times incapable of providing this help. It devolves then on other persons, other families, and, in a subsidiary way, society to provide for their needs: “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world

  7. According to reports by the New York Daily News and (England’s) Daily Mail, the cocktail did not explode.

  8. Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry:

    “…Our nation’s heart breaks right now because we have strayed far from the path of love. Because love does not look like one man’s knee on another man’s neck, crushing the God-given life out of him. This is callous disregard for the life of another human being, shown in the willingness to snuff it out brutally as the unarmed victim pleads for mercy.

    “Love does not look like the harm being caused by some police or some protesters in our cities. Violence against any person is violence against a child of God, created in God’s image. And that ultimately is violence against God, which is blasphemy — the denial of the God whose love is the root of genuine justice and true human dignity and equality.

    “Love does not look like the silence and complicity of too many of us, who wish more for tranquility than justice. … So what is the path of love? In times like these, how can we find it and follow it?

    “When I think about what love looks like, I see us channeling our holy rage into concrete, productive and powerful action. In this moment, love looks like voting for leadership at the local, state, and federal level that will help us to make lasting reform. Love looks like calling on officials and demanding they fulfill their duty to protect the dignity of every child of God.

    “Love looks like making the long-term commitment to racial healing, justice and truth-telling — knowing that, without intentional, ongoing intervention on the part of every person of good will, America will cling to its original, racist ways of being.

    “Love looks like working with local police departments to build relationships with the community and develop mechanisms that hold officers accountable. It means ensuring that no police officer with a history of unauthorized force or racialized violence is shielded and allowed to endanger the lives of those they’ve sworn to protect and serve.

    “Love looks like all of us — people of every race and religion and national origin and political affiliation — standing up and saying ‘Enough! We can do better than this. We can be better than this.’ …”

    Every one of us has a choice about how we respond. I am not religious, but see much to value in Bishop Curry’s words.

    1. Wasn’t that the guy who offered that rambling nonsense sermon at Prince Harry’s wedding? At the time, it seemed a fitting complement to the obnoxious displays of several of the bride’s paternal-side relatives. (Not to mention the spectre of her previous husband and previous occupation).

          1. I have to admit, it’s really funny that you think we’re the same person. It’s as if you can’t imagine that there’s more than one liberal in the world who would choose to comment here. SMH.

    2. “Because love does not look like one man’s knee on another man’s neck, crushing the God-given life out of him.”

      More importantly, the AUTOPSY does not look like one man’s knee on another man’s neck, crushing the God-given life out of him.

      Free Derek Chauvin!

      Squeeky Fromm
      Girl Reporter

      1. The coroner’s office hasn’t yet released a final autopsy report, and the preliminary report stated that Floyd’s death was a result of “combined effects,” where the first component listed was “Mr. Floyd’s being restrained by police.”

        Choose honest discussion Squeeky.

          1. Don’t depend on what you remember.
            Don’t depend on a preliminary report.
            The nature of the restraint may indeed be a crime, and if you can learn patience, we’ll find out. Whether Chauvin did or didn’t commit a crime will be determined by a jury, not by you or me.

    3. Where someone is a graduate of Princeton and NYU Law, and working as a corporate attorney in Manhattan, how much more “racial healing and justice” can there be? Is that not enough? This reminds me of Michele Obama, who when provided the opportunity to study at Princeton, and could have used the four years to broaden her mind, chose to immerse herself in African-American Studies and participate in demonstrations against the very university that had provided her such an exceptional opportunity. For some people, their alienation runs so deep that there is literally nothing that can be done to assuage their anger. At this point, much of the tremendous efforts this country has made towards racial healing appear to be a wasted effort. Some people will never be satisfied and it’s time we recognize that. It’s time to eliminate affirmative action and base university admissions strictly on merit. Rather than providing a coveted seat at a top-tier university to an aggrieved black who will major in some quasi-academic course of grievance studies, let the seat go to an Asian kid who will major in science or engineering and contribute something constructive to this country.

      1. You advocate that we “base university admissions strictly on merit.”

        Glad to know that you reject affirmative action for the rich and for kids of alumni, who get many more admission slots at selective universities than students admitted under affirmative action.

        It’s also striking that you choose to focus on a couple of individuals, when the sentence you took a phrase from was “Love looks like making the long-term commitment to racial healing, justice and truth-telling — knowing that, without intentional, ongoing intervention on the part of every person of good will, America will cling to its original, racist ways of being.”

        You ask “Is that [i.e., Mattis’s degree and job] not enough?,” and the answer is “No, it’s not enough that some African Americans have done well. We need to fight against the racism that affects all Americans.” Do you want to rid America of all racism, or don’t you? Do you want a just country for all or don’t you? Do you commit to “truth-telling” about all issues or don’t you?

      2. All good points. I also think it strange that all of these recipients of affirmative action policies stay entrenched, indeed invested, in the view of how rigged the system is against them, especially when they end up being millionaires. They took up space that more qualified people could have filled, and still foment discontent.

  9. Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law…this crime is attempted murder and engagement in domestic terrorism. In the meantime, suspend his law license now

  10. We learned what sort of people are in the associate’s ranks at BigLaw firms 15 years ago, when they were knocking each other over to provide pro bono services to Gitmo inmates.

    That’s the state we’ve been in for the better part of a generation. Much and perhaps most of our professional-managerial class is loyal to their own stratum and similar post-national populations abroad. They aren’t loyal to their country and people of the more vernacular population in their countries are just pairs of hands. And for all their education, they subscribe to remarkably stupid and vicious notions. This man is impetuous and exhibitionistic in a way others are not, but with scant doubt his attitudes are not foreign to his matrix.

    A lot of these people are expendable. They should be handed nansen passports and deported.

  11. Think how angry a person has to be to engage in arson.

    Think how much more angry a person has to be in order to be willing to jeopardize everything that he has.

    Now think about how many really angry people there are who haven’t been heard from yet.

    We need to address the cancer of qualified immunity and the police misconduct that it engenders.

    Remember Dallas and the five cops shot? There are others thinking about a repeat.

    1. We need to address the cancer of qualified immunity and the police misconduct that it engenders.

      No we don’t. The notion that there’s a systemic problem here is a lie. It’s just that asinine haut bourgeois do not respect the police and lumpen slum residents fancy they shouldn’t have to answer to the rest of us.

      Yes.

    4. Oh please! As if anger alone is justification for lawlessness. Wahhhhhh !!!! You can’t always get what you want.

    5. Think about the raw anger caused by being kicked by the Western Jackboot through law school and into the world of corporate law..just the horror of it alone.

  12. I do not understand how you, as a corporate attorney, allow yourself to do this. Did they think they were invisible?

    1. My wager is that the man in question has an issue with time-preference and judgment, and is the sort of person who carries escalating amounts of consumer debt.

    2. The pain was just so raw..you know, from their slave days, just such a raw pain from being under the jackboot of Western Culture. That same boot that kicked him through law school and into the world of corporate law.

      1. The brotha was righteously angry because he was reduced to driving a 5 year old tan minivan. Society failed him! America must be destroyed! Burn baby burn!!!!! 🧨🔥
