Two New York City lawyers charged with firebombing a police car during the race riots that swept over the city following the death of George Floyd have been released from jail, following a campaign by prominent social justice organizations to allow them to post bail. Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman, both registered attorneys in New York, have been federally charged with causing damage by fire and explosives to a police vehicle, offenses that could merit them 20 years in prison.
Authorities allege that Mattis and Rahman hurled a molotov cocktail into the window of an empty police vehicle before fleeing the scene of the crime in a getaway car. The device failed to detonate, but the two were quickly arrested, the seriousness of their alleged crime meriting federal charges.
A federal appeals court granted the pair an opportunity to post $250,000 bail while awaiting trial, after federal prosecutors sought to deny them pre-trial release.
Upon their release from the Metropolitan Detention Center, neither Mattis nor Rahman appeared inclined to talk to the media.

Rahman and Mattis graduated from prestigious Ivy League law schools, and the latter worked for an elite Manhattan law firm, before being erased from the firm’s website following his rioting charges.
Elite-funded social justice and progressive organizations have been demanding that the federal government show leniency to the two, likening their arson attack to a police car that could’ve been occupied to mere “vandalism” and calling for a special standard to be applied to the two progressive attorneys of color.
A fundraiser for Mattis has raised more than $300,000, with more than 7,000 donors contributing.
They’ve both plead not guilty. They’ll be restricted to home confinement while awaiting an outcome in the justice system.
Biden Supporter Arrested After Shooting at Trump Supporters Driving Pickup Truck
Police have made an arrest in Kingsville, Maryland, after a Joe Biden supporter shot at Trump supporters driving a pickup truck.
The incident happened outside the Biden supporter’s residence. Douglas Kuhn was putting a large “Biden for President” sign up on his property on Saturday, October 17, when drivers of a pickup truck sporting Trump flags innocuously honked their horn while driving by. That was when Kuhn shot at them, according to the Baltimore County Police Department.
Thankfully no one was killed or injured. The pickup truck did not sustain any damage either.
The College Republicans at Towson University released the following statement, noting that the shooting victims were the organization’s former vice president and his father:

Douglas Kuhn is currently being held in jail without bail. He has been charged with both first- and second-degree assault.
How many times have we seen or heard stories about leftists—from Biden supporters to Antifa thugs—assaulting or shooting Trump supporters over the past four years? I stopped counting a while ago. Now compare that to the number of times we’ve seen or heard stories about the reverse. It’s negligible. If it happened the mainstream media wouldn’t let us hear the end of it.
Journalists won’t even bother asking Joe Biden about this story, so don’t hold your breath. As Tucker Carlson pointed out in last night’s monologue, they are significantly more concerned with the flavor of shakes he orders during campaign stops.
