This is just absolutely ridiculous.
BLM and ANTIFA caused untold numbers in property damage, they engaged in violence, looted, burned down buildings, and now they are getting off in New York City.
NYC is giving into thugs, and criminals, yet those who went to D.C. to protest the fake election, by fake people are facing extremely harsh punishment.
How many January 6th protestors looted?
How many burned down buildings?
How many took 2-3 months off last summer to terrorize entire cities?
None, yet apparently they are the biggest threat this country faces—not Antifa, and not the communist thugs known as Black Lives Matter.
Here are the latest reports:
Most looting and rioting charges dropped in NYChttps://t.co/xUzMkZEjxI

New York City district attorneys have refused to prosecute most rioting and looting cases from last year’s May and June violence, WNBC-TV reported Friday.
Hundreds of arrests were made — mostly in Manhattan and the Bronx — as a result of violence when mobs and organized criminals took to the streets during the COVID-19 pandemic and following the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody.
Based on NYPD data, WNBC reported that 485 arrests were made in Manhattan. Of those cases, 222 were dropped and 73 resulted in convictions for lesser counts, such as trespassing, which carries no jail time. Another 40 cases involved juveniles and were sent to family court; 128 cases remain open.
Police were outnumbered and seemingly unprepared as mobs ransacked stores. Many looters were caught on tape, some with their faces visible, while others posted their actions on social media.
If you sleep well knowing prosecutors are throwing the book at the Capitol rioters, have a look. Thanks @jonathan4ny for this important reporting.

Former NYPD Chief of Patrol Wilbur Chapman shared his disagreement with the DA’s dropping of the numerous looting and burglary cases.
“If they are so overworked that they can’t handle the mission that they’re hired for, then maybe they should find another line of work,” he stated.
Sources with the DA’s offices reportedly told the outlet that evidence, in some instances, was not strong enough for proof beyond a reasonable doubt and because the courts were closed during the pandemic, there was a massive backlog of cases.
“The NYPD did set up a task force after the riots to examine videos and photos to separate out suspected rioters from peaceful protesters,” the article noted.
Breitbart News reported on June 1, 2020, that looters grabbed $2.4 million worth of watches once they broke into a Rolex store in New York’s Soho neighborhood.
