Biden’s DOJ Thinks BLM Criminals Deserve Lesser Sentences
Earlier this month, a BLM rioter was sentenced to ten years in federal prison for burning down a Minneapolis pawn shop during the George Floyd riots in May 2020.
Sentencing guidelines, however, recommended a sentence of nearly double that. It turns out that Joe Biden’s Justice Department recommended a lesser sentence because the rioter, Montez Terriel Lee Jr., of Rochester, New York, committed his crime in the name of Black Lives Matter.
According to a memo from the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Minnesota, even though Lee “committed a crime that cost a man his life,” his motives for committing the crime merited a lesser sentence.
“Mr. Lee’s motive for setting the fire is a foremost issue. Mr. Lee credibly states that he was in the streets to protest unlawful police violence against black men, and there is no basis for disbelieving this statement,” the memo reads. “Mr. Lee, appropriately, acknowledges that he ‘could have demonstrated differently,’ but that he was ‘caught up in the fury of the mob after living as a black man watching his peers suffer at the hands of police.'”
“As anyone watching the news worldwide knows, many other people in Minnesota were similarly caught up,” the memo continues. “There appear to have been many people in those days looking only to exploit the chaos and disorder in the interests of personal gain or random violence. There also appear to have been many people who felt angry, frustrated, and disenfranchised and were attempting, in many cases in an unacceptably reckless and dangerous manner, to give voice to those feelings. Mr. Lee appears to be squarely in this latter category.”
Because supporting Black Lives Matter is the key to a reduced sentence in Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s office requested Lee get 144 months instead of the recommended 235-240 months. Instead, the Obama-nominated Judge Wilhelmina M. Wright sentenced Lee to 120 months.
So, if you’re in legal trouble, say you support Black Lives Matter, and the Biden Justice Department will give you one of these:

Notes from the Editor
As charges are finally starting to be pressed against the mob who destroyed two billion in property, looted and rioted their way across the nation, we are seeing liberal policies taking place, where if you were doing this for BLM, you find there is a different type of justice for you then for the January 6 people who were not burning buildings, or looting.
While prisoners still sit in cells with no charges, Biden’s Attorney General is making sure that BLM rioters are given light sentences or released in the name of restorative justice.
This case, though has to be the worst, here the actions of this individual cost a man his life, but that does not matter to the DA, he says because of whom he was protesting for, not to mention he was black, that made sentencing him as anyone else would be a no go for this administration.
We are shown in pictures that justice is blind; I beg to differ. It turns out that Democrats have ripped off the blinders of justice and are putting glasses on them that only see race and color.
