“Of people trying to link peaceful dissent to pure destruction and theft.”
I hope you’re not trying to pass off the events of Jan 6th as “peaceful dissent”!
In both the summer riots, and the Capitol insurrection, there were legitimate expressions of “peaceful dissent”; one, of continuing police violence and racial injustice… the other, based on the lies of election fraud by a narcissist.
They both also had elements of “pure destruction and theft”; one, committed mostly by “hijackers” of the event who took advantage of the situation to loot and pillage… the other, based on the directions of the above said narcissist, to attack our Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the very democratic principles America was founded on!
And, contrary to your belief, the violent offenders of both events are being identified and brought to justice!
According to The Prosecution Project (tPP), the summer riots “resulted in over 10,000 arrests nationwide.” And while prosecution is still ongoing, sentencing has ranged from time served… to community service… to more than 5 years in prison!
Since those cases are mostly all adjudicated locally, most of America is not aware of them, or their outcomes!
On the other hand…
Prosecution of virtually all of the Jan 6th rioters is national news, and most Americans are aware of them…
Leading many of the village uninformed to believe there’s a disparity of treatment between the two events.
There is NOT!
