A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters – setting their bail at $1 million each – for allegedly rioting in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man. Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd. The overnight violence came on the heels of the death of Ricardo Munoz, the mentally ill 27-year-old who was seen on body cam footage charging at a cop with a knife in hand. The officer shot and killed Munoz Sunday afternoon outside his mother’s house in downtown Lancaster.


Its about time that we saw a judge interested in law & order, vs a SJW pansy. Good for you, Judge Roth.

Actually about right for the crimes they are charged, arson, riot, institutional vandalism and criminal conspiracy. Arson is the same as attempted murder.

Re #1 Yes it will. This isn't a jaywalking or speeding ticket, this is rioting.

They couldn't post bail, so for the time being, they stay in jail. They are a menace among the public.

It wasn't that long ago in Georgia when arson of an occupied building could get you the death penalty whether anybody died or not. The law was passed after a spate of revenge arsons hit certain areas of the state. People would get mad at their neighbors and burn them out.

Who's to say what's excessive? Does rioting merit the amount? Ask the people whose business's were damaged.

Not uncommon for serious crimes to have bail at this level. Bail is a guarantee of appearance. They are setting it high enough to be certain that either A) they DO appear or B) it will be worth the while of a bounty hunter to hunt them down and drag them back to the court. The "medics" (color me skeptical as hell) are likely from out of town, and paid instigators who will disappear and do it again elsewhere if the bail is too low. IMO, when out of town folks travel to cause violence and mayhem, they need a very large bail to make sure that they come back for trial. But.....I'm not a lawyer, maybe the leftist pukes have wrecked this, too. Arson is not a minor crme, IMO, not a lot different than attempted murder. Arson frequently kills.

As a lawyer, let me set #1 straight. The 8th Amendment relates to cruel and unusual punishment. Bail is not punishment; it is to set a sufficient financial incentive for the accused to show up at trial. Indeed, in cases where there is substantial flight risk, it is not unconstitutional to allow for no bail. Requiring a bail of $1 million may functionally be the same as no bail, but so what? To think these people charged with multiple felonies that could jail them for the rest of their lives pose no substantial risk of flight is laughable. And, who knows, George Soros or Kamala Harris’s staff may yet post bail for these pukes the way they have for rioters in Portland.

fYI, in Pennsylvania, the 'magisterial court judge' is what used to be called a 'Justice of the Peace' and does not have to be an attorney. It is an elected office, and to run, you need no qualifications, but if you win, and you are not an attorney, you have to take a three month course at a tiny failing college in Pa, propped up by the Pa legislature, and you have to pass a State exam. That process usually works, although sometimes there are absolute clowns, and sometimes crooks, elected. In this case, the magistrate done good.

Section 14 of the Penna Constitution: § 14. Prisoners to be bailable; habeas corpus. All prisoners shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, unless for capital offenses or for offenses for which the maximum sentence is life imprisonment or unless no condition or combination of conditions other than imprisonment will reasonably assure the safety of any person and the community when the proof is evident or presumption great; and the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in case of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it. There is definitely a public safety issue.

New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is urging Empire State lawmakers to raise taxes, despite opposition from Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Ocasio-Cortez called on Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to increase rates as the state battles a massive coronavirus-induced multi-billion-dollar budget hole. “I’m calling on Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo to raise revenue to fund universal child-care programs, significantly increase staffing at schools and fund the infrastructure improvements, including ventilation, that our school buildings need to be safe,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a statement obtained by The New York Post on Wednesday.

Last year, a political party in Germany provoked controversy when it used the following painting in its election campaign to illustrate one of the reasons it was against immigration. Painted in France in 1866 and titled "Slave Market," the painting was described as "show[ing] a black, apparently Muslim slave trader displaying a naked young woman with much lighter skin to a group of men for examination," probably in North Africa. The Alternative for Germany party (AfD) put up several posters of this painting with the slogan, "So that Europe won't become Eurabia."

A trio of Democrats on Thursday introduced legislation to declare structural racism a public health crisis and to create a federal government center to tackle racial disparities in health care for Black communities and other minorities. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., teamed up with Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., to unveil their plan to require the federal government to begin actively developing "anti-racist health policy." The lawmakers pointed to the coronavirus pandemic and police brutality ‒ which has set off a summer of racial unrest in America ‒ as reasons to pass the legislation.

President Trump and his campaign have accused Biden of being "too late" with his response, but the former vice president has sought to speak out more forcefully on the issue, with his latest statement coming after a man believed to be a Trump supporter was shot in Portland.

But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that the state will ban sales of gas-powered vehicles, effective in 2035. Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045. Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market.

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel. This good news for the world was bad news for the media.

His campaign has been playing "hide the Crypt-Keeper" since spring, occasionally proving to the public that he's still ticking by having him tussle with a teleprompter while "objective journalists" participate in make-believe interviews. Biden's cognitive decline is now so steep that he begins reading pre-written answers to pre-written questions, forgets what he's doing halfway through, and settles for stringing syllables together that sound English-y in a non–native speaker sort of way. He is a man forever in search of a thought but finding none
