A federal grand jury has returned indictments on four men for their role in the burning of the Minneapolis Police Station on May 28th in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

The indictments file one count of conspiracy to commit arson against Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 22, of Brainerd; Davon De-Andre Turner, 24, of St. Paul; Bryce Michael Williams, 26, of Staples; and Branden Michael Wolfe, 23, of St. Paul.

Robinson and Wolfe had already been arrested and charged with abetting and aiding arson for their role in the attack on the police station. Williams had been previously charged before grand jury indictment process, which establishes the four men as codefendants.

The Minneapolis Police headquarters arson, which was enabled when the police force retreated from the building and left it to the whims of a violent mob of rioters, was the first major act of vandalism and political violence during the summer of 2020. After the building was burned, tens of thousands of rioters across the country assumed they’d have a free pass to engage in criminal activity.

The indictment clarifies that the four men worked with thus-unidentified co-conspirators, who could face charges as well for their role in attacking the governmental building.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
