Rioters all over the country have been burning storefronts, toppling statues, and assaulting police – and until now they’ve been getting away with it. The media and politicians are treating them with kid gloves, and elevating them to hero status.
But not all of our leaders have gone completely crazy.
In Oklahoma, District Attorney David Prater just dropped the hammer on several Antifa wannabe terrorists. The Washington Examiner reports:
A district attorney in Oklahoma hit several protesters with charges of assault, rioting, and terrorism in connection to recent violent protests that took place in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said on Friday that he chose to pursue the toughest charges against the rioters because he does not support the lawlessness that has taken place in some parts of the country, including the “police-free” region of Seattle known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protests, or CHOP.
“This is not Seattle,” he told the Oklahoman. “We’re not putting up with this lawlessness here.”
Prater leveled strict charges against many of those who were arrested during the protests. Isael Antonio Ortiz, 21, Eric Christopher Ruffin, 26, and Malachai Davis, 18, were hit with terrorism charges after police alleged that Ortiz burned an Oklahoma County sheriff’s van during protests on May 30.
What a breath of fresh air. A law enforcement officer who is enforcing the law? Why is that so rare as to merit notice in today’s America?
Can you imagine a middle-class person torching anyone’s car (not to mention a police vehicle) and getting away with it? The only reason not to press charges on the rioters is pure lawlessness and politically motivated fear.
Luckily for the citizens of his district, Mr. Prater isn’t afraid of the mob.
We need more like him.
