The news that District Attorney David Prater is pursuing politically based charges of terrorism, incitement to riot, and assault dropped late Friday night. Word quickly spread of the excessive charges
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater told the rioters, This is not Seattle. Were not putting up with this lawlessness here.
The Oklahoman reported: Protesters blamed for the violence that broke out in Oklahoma City the last weekend in May were charged Friday with terrorism, rioting and assault.
If convicted of the felony offenses, they could be sentenced to years in prison.
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater made the decisions himself on the charges in a get-tough approach meant to deter others from going too far during protests in the future.
This is not Seattle, Prater said Friday. Were not putting up with this lawlessness here.
Also charged Friday were five defendants identified as involved in the painting of murals in downtown Oklahoma City this week. They are accused in an incitement to riot charge of interfering with a police sergeant who was trying to take a homicide witness for an interview at police headquarters Tuesday.

For more commentary on this:
Red State calls the charges “excessive”.
Has any rioter in the country been charged with a felony (before being released within hours)?
I love it!
Well, what would you expect a publication that calls itself “RED” State”?
I can’t take seriously any publication that doesn’t know the difference between a judge and district attorney.
Good, so far, but they need to be fined, jailed, and blackballed for life.
Well at least there is one DA that Soros wasn’t able to inject into the system.
“Word quickly spread of the excessive charges”
Excessive charges? What makes them excessive?
Badly written article loaded with bias, but the news itself is good!
