'We're not putting up with this lawlessness here'
Oklahoma City prosecutors are charging three violent protesters, who allegedly participated in demonstrations triggered by the killing of George Floyd, with terrorism.
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater announced Friday that he has charged 21-year-old Isael Antonio Ortiz, 26-year-old Eric Christopher Ruffin, and 18-year-old Malachai Davis with terrorism, the Oklahoman reported.
During protests on May 30, Ortiz allegedly burned an Oklahoma County Sheriff's office van and attempted to burn a nearby bail bonds office. Ruffin allegedly encouraged the "wanton destruction" of the van, while Davis is accused of damaging the bail bonds office.
Prater said he hopes the stiff charge deters future violent protests.
"This is not Seattle," Prater said Friday, according to the Oklahoman. "We're not putting up with this lawlessness here."
Prater's reference to Seattle is presumably a reference to the six-block autonomous zone which has been known as the "capital hill autonomous zone" and "capital hill occupied protest" established by protesters on June 8 following protests related to George Floyd's tragic death.
Seattle leaders initially defended the autonomous zone, and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin (D) even likened it to the "summer of love." Dunkin, of course, has now called for the violence plagued autonomous zone to be dismantled.
Those charged by Prater face years in prison if convicted, the Oklahoman reported.
Hopefully, his Tulsa counterpart will investigate the bs that went on outside and inside President Trump’s Tulsa appearance.
Its good to be an Okie from Muskogee.
Now compare the number of burned out stores in OK and WA.
Free the Oklahoma Three
And they never are.
[’This is not Seattle’]
Way to go fellow Oakies!
Way to go fellow Oakies!
damaging the bail bond office? now that’s a very poor career move for a criminal
He looks so...employable.
Little man, arrogant look, that is some mother’s son!
Now, the mom probably lost any influence on her son’s life when he was in 4th grade, he has been a little criminal since then.
Portland and its leadership can be blamed for allowing the terror, but it’s the mothers and lost fathers that are really to blame.
I will now state something that is terrible. It is because of the stress I feel over the Portland terror. Pardon the shout and I abhor abortion.
IF THAT LITTLE MAN HAD BEEN ABORTED, HE WOULD NOT BE ON THE PORTLAND SCENE, TOO BAD HE AND HIS ACCOMPLICES WERE MISSED!
Ortiz already is on probation after pleading guilty last year to endangering others while attempting to elude police. Plus he's also already facing a 2019 drive-by shooting charge.
Stop already! He was trying to turn his life around, was thinking about going back to school...
Hahaha . ALL leftist lunatic losers should be arrested. .
