First Insurrectionist Sentenced With Felony

In a first, Judge Randolph Moss, found the first case of January 6th Protestors guilty. It was a felony crime of obstructing an official proceeding that they ended up charging the protestor, Paul Hodgkins. He will serve 8 months prison time as part of his deal.

Paul himself didn’t cause any harm, didn’t partake in any of the violence or any of the ransacking of the building. He simply went inside and walked around. This will set the bar for all the other Americans who are still imprisoned without trial since Jan 6.

The prosecutors were pushing for 18 months behind bars for Paul, but the judge only gave 8 months. Many still think this is an atrocity to have these individuals serve any time at all. Protestors are routinely entering the Capitol building and non have ever served time like this. It is completely unprecedented.

Just this past week a Democrat, Rep. Joyce Beatty of Ohio was arrested for leading a protest into the the Hart Senate Office Building and was arrested by Capitol Police. She was immediately released and not charged. Her language while protesting and on social media was full of the same language that has gotten so many conservatives in trouble. However, he social media is fully intact and her protestors, including herself, were able to march into the building and protest and be released.

It’s a clear double standard.

Can you feel it? The Patriot storm is brewing.

“Disparate Sentencing” has long been an issue raised in criminal law cases – usually relying on some assertion that one race is getting hit with more severe sentences than some other race charged with the same offense. BUT race is not the only criterion for asserting that kind of “disparate sentencing”. Political opinions can also be asserted and the very recent case of Congresswoman Beatty provides about as compelling an example in which comparable behavior is treated in extremely different manners. The issue can and must be appealed and I would be happy with either result – the reducton of this chap’s sentence OR the proffering of criminal charges against the Congresswoman with the same kind of deal put forward.
