If you think American justice is blind, you live in a different world than the rest of us. Some might argue that justice favors the white and privileged in the country.
However, recent actions indicate the pendulum swings hard in the other direction. For example, two lawyers who participated in the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots were facing significant charges for throwing molotov cocktails at police.
The operative word is were. Thanks to the Biden administration’s Department of Justice, they now face a much smaller sentence.
The two lawyers were facing domestic terrorism charges and the possibility of 30 years in jail. This week, the Biden Administration agreed to a massive reduction of the charges in a plea agreement that will likely result only in a couple years of jail time.t.co/dLCKAWqzqv
