A truck driver who drove onto the I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis, Minn. and narrowly avoided hitting rioters was released from jail without being charged with any crime on Tuesday.
Prosecutors in Hennepin County claim they are still investigating, and 35-year-old Bogdan Vechirko of Otsego may face charges in the future, but as of right now, he is a free man.
“Investigators are in the process of gathering additional information and answers to aid in the charging decision,” County Attorney Mike Freeman said in a statement on Tuesday.
Art Loghinov, a relative of Vechirko, spoke with him and told his side of the harrowing incident that could have resulted in Vechirko being beaten senseless by the mob if he hadn’t driven through them.
Loghinov was adamant that the situation was “not his fault. … He didn’t have any intent to harm or do anything bad to anybody.”
State Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington said on Monday that Vechirko “panicked, and he just kept barreling forward” but did not drive through any barriers meant to protect protesters and ultimately hit nobody. He is still talking with Freeman about the possibility of charging Vechirko with crimes.
“We just want to make sure, even though no one was killed … we are certainly getting to the right charge that holds him accountable for the behaviors,” Harrington said.
Vechirko’s significant other, Liudmila, who is eight months pregnant, is pleading for assistance during Loghinov’s ordeal. She recorded a video claiming that “our credit cards are frozen since they stole his wallet, phone and all the belongings in the truck’s cabin.”
“Due to multiple requests, I am recording this video for those who care and want to help our family,” Vechirko said as translated from Russian, advertising a PayPal e-mail address that individuals could send donations toward to keep the family afloat.
Loghinov said the family is “very thankful for the people who came to rescue him and very grateful for the police,” who prevented the mob from beating Vechirko senseless after his truck finally came to a stop.
“They are not a rich family,” Loghinov said. “He is a hard worker and the only one bringing money to the family.”
Vechirko is a Russian immigrant who was just trying to make ends meet when he came into contact with the mob. Now, his life may never be the same due to his encounter with the savages in the streets.
“He’s a nice, friendly guy,” Loghinov said. “He was just going home.”
More decent, hard-working individuals will have their lives ruined by the left-wing mob before these continuous riots are said and done.
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote
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.
