If only Democrats were as eager to jail cop-killers as they are to jail anti-government protestors.
As that’s precisely what just occurred in the closely watched case of Paul Allard Hodgkins, a 38-year-old crane operator from Tampa, Florida who was just sentenced to eight months in prison for (wait for it) “obstructing an official proceeding.”
In other words, Hodgkins wasn’t charged for arson; he wasn’t charged for looting; he wasn’t charged for assault; and he certainly wasn’t charged for assaulting a police officer.
What he was charged with was apparently disrupting the “official proceedings” of Congress, in which nothing is clearly ever done anyway, if AOC’s rather inappropriate social media videos are to be believed.
Hodgkins was one of several Capitol Hill protestors that supposedly endangered the safety of rather unrepresentative “representatives” in Congress, though he, along with many others, curiously was not charged with any kind of violent crime whatsoever.
Moreover, Hodgkins was not armed, unless Democrats count a Trump flag as some kind of weapon of mass destruction (knowing the Democrats, they probably do).
On top of that, Hodgkins has no previous convictions, nor did he demonstrate any malicious intent whatsoever. He also issued a rather groveling apology before the judge, indicating his remorse in briefly losing control of his emotions while following the crowd.

Hodgkins apparently also had to affirmatively state that Biden is the “legitimate” president of the United States, which raises a number of questions about the real intention of this sham of a “trial.”
Hodgkins’ lawyer, Patrick N. Leduc, argued that the punishment of Hodgkins was akin to branding him with a Scarlett letter, which, from a literary standpoint, denotes a punishment grossly out of proportionate to what was actually done.

Will it ever …
Such a Scarlett letter is even more repulsive when considering the fact that Democrats routinely let truly violent criminals run free and shamelessly endanger society, which speaks volumes about their real intentions:
Any American is fair game to extreme violence from illegals, gang members, BLM/Antifa “activists,” and a whole host of other characters … whereas any even remote “threat” to them, including when the weapons consist of little more than American flags and pro-Trump flags, apparently is worthy of a national trial by fire (not to mention by fictional media).
In the meantime, while the fictional news media continues to fixate on the supposed “threat to democracy” posed by nonviolent individuals such as Hodgkins, cop killers literally roam free in the streets of the United States, continuing to do what they apparently thrive on doing: attacking law enforcement.
And, unlike Hodgkins, these violent criminals tend to have a very, very long rap sheet, which leads many to wonder how on earth they are out on the streets in the first place.
Just weeks ago, yet another thug shot a police officer, leaving them in critical condition. Curiously, the incident took place in Daytona, Florida, just a couple of hours away from Tampa, Florida, though Hodgkins was apparently a more highly demanded “criminal” than a violent thug is.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that the cop-hating criminal, Othal Wallace, has faced at least 15 criminal charges since 2012, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Based upon repeated past experience, Wallace will likely be roaming the streets again in the near-future, whereas gainfully employed, nonviolent individuals, including Hodgkins and likely others, will be locked up for multiple months on end.
Talk about an abysmal misuse of already limited law enforcement resources …
Clearly, it hasn’t yet occurred to the Democrats that taxes paid by individuals like Hodgkins likely fund the perpetual unemployment of criminals like Wallace in the first place, not to mention a host of other perpetually unemployed BLM/Antifa thugs.
Most disturbingly of all, the sentencing of Hodgkins likely sets the stage for the sentencing of other individuals involved in the events of January 6, as the next several weeks should reveal …
