‘This is not Seattle.’ Says District Attorney & Charges 3 Rioters With Terrorism
Oklahoma Country District Attorney David Prater is charging three anti-police rioters with terrorism, rioting, and assault.
“When you act like a terrorist, you will be treated like a terrorist,” he said, adding, “This is not Seattle. We’re not putting up with this lawlessness here.”
Three men are being charged allegedly over an attack on an Oklahoma County sheriff van.
Breitbart News reports:
Isael Antonio Ortiz, 21, has been charged in two terrorism cases. He’s charged with burning an Oklahoma County sheriff’s van and then attempting to burn down a bail bonds office.
Eric Christopher Ruffin, 26, is charged with calling for “wanton destruction” with respect to the burned sheriff’s van. Authorities say Ruffin was caught on Facebook Live whipping up the crowd.
Malachai Davis, 18, was charged with terrorism over damage done to CJ’s Bail Bonds. He was apparently caught on video wearing bloody brass knuckles.
Around a dozen other people have also been charged with rioting.
A man, Saxon Weber, 26, was also charged with assault and battery of a police officer.
“Several people were carrying flags that were identified as belonging to the following groups: Antifa, Soviet Union (communism), American Indian Movement, Anarcho-Communism (solid red), and the original Oklahoma flag … currently adopted by Oklahoma Socialists,” police reported in their court briefings.
The ACLU that was silent during the draconian stay at home orders however in a statement said that the charges are “excessive, politically based and upsetting.” However, making it illegal to buy seeds at a store is just fine.
