  1. If Kamala and the assorted kommies that have been paying bail for these miscreats want to put bail up for these criminals, if I were judge, I might be willing to consider sentencing them to only a year in prison as long as they forfeited all the bail money to pay for the damages they caused.

    Ten million dollars might come close to covering the tab and send a clear message to all of these burning, looting, violent cretins across the country that would strongly discourage such future behavior. I’m sure the ones paying bail would stop paying it and let justice take its course if this happened. If they can’t make bail ……. hang ’em.

  2. “Some judge from HI will overturn it.”

    Maybe, but someone’s gonna have to spend an awful lot of money getting it there. And that someone will have a very public record, something that will be very difficult to keep hidden from the public.

  3. We need laws passed to enable the confiscation of property and or prison work programs so these people can pay society back the debt they owe.

  4. I wonder what all the Amish in the Lancaster area make of this BLM bullshit?

    “Vell, Miller, you know dat end of dairy cow from vitch comes cow patty?”

    “Yas, Bueller, I know it.”

    “Vell, Miller, dey rioters and Schvartzer Lives Matter, Dey are that end of dairy cow, spreading their manure over even that vitch is not hay field.”

    “Ah, I see now, Bueller. Thank you, and go vit Gott.”

    “And Miller, your wife…”

    “Yas, Bueller?”

    “Your wife… she is… very plain.”

    “Vy, thank you, Bueller!”
