Two far-left rioters who pleaded guilty to burning down an Atlanta Wendy’s during the Black Lives Matter riots in 2020 have been sentenced to five years of probation by a Fulton County judge.
The Wendy’s was the site of the fatal, officer-involved shooting of Rayshard Brooks on June 12, 2020. Brooks had fallen asleep in the drive thru and attacked the responding Atlanta Police Officer, Garret Rolfe, when he was detained. Brooks was shot and killed after he tried to grab Rolfe’s taser, leading to riots not long after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.
Atanta’s BLM chapter, along with other chapters and far-left activists nationwide, called for Rolfe to be charged. He ultimately was charged with murder by then-Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, though charges were dropped in 2022 by a special prosecutor.
Following Brooks’ death, riots erupted at the site of the shooting and the surrounding area. The Wendy’s where Brooks was shot was soon torched by arsonists in what became a widely recognized image from the year-long.
In the days immediately following the blaze, armed BLM militants moved into the area and set up blockades, which prevented law enforcement and other emergency services from accessing the area.
On Saturday, 11 Alive reported that two suspects charged with torching the Wendy’s had accepted generous plea deals. Chisom Kingston and Natalie White were each sentenced to five years of probation, court records show.
Both Kingston and White will also be forced to complete 150 hours of community service and pay a $500 fine. A third suspect, John Wade, was indicted for his role in starting the blaze this past January.
According to an analysis from The Guardian, upwards of 99 percent of charges brought against Black Lives Matter rioters in 2020 were dropped by local prosecutors.
So you got to slap on the wrist for burning down a Wendy’s, as long as your protest is in support of some politically correct cause.
I guess I can burn down a local restaurant and all it will cost is a 500 dollar fine?
Whatta justice system we have now!
The Jan 6 protestors against vote fraud didn’t burn down any buildings. Yet they’re in prison.
Donald Trump once ate at a Wendy’s. Charges are pending.

Some animals are more equal than others. Laws only apply to Republicans.
Of course they got off easy. Only following orders, see?
If a conservative group burned down a Starbucks you can only imagine the sentence.
Where’s the beef?
Meanwhile.....the J6 POLITICAL prisoners, are rotting in jail, with NO due process.
They almost raped AOC! They hit a policeman on the head with a fire hydrant, killing him instantly!
That’s the point. The same is happening all over the Western world.
A British woman is arrested for silently praying outside an abortion clinic while Pakis who rape little girls do so with impunity and no consequences.
Fathers who try to save their daughters from these gangs are arrested.
Irish who even speak politely against importation of North African gangs are arrested while the stabbing of Irish children is hushed up.
Fulton county and Amish youts = slap on the wrist..maybe.
The same Fulton County with rampant vote fraud (fake pipe burst, repeat scanning ballots from Dim voters)
Wendy’s serves hamburgers, and makes them into beautiful things. They deserved to be torched for warming the globe with cow burps (cows don’t fart, but they’re still bad, so we pivot to burping).
When government protects the criminals and prosecutes the innocent, it becomes time to change the government.
Who says crime doesn’t pay? :)
Had they been white, They would have got life for attempted homicide or something. 2 tiered justice system? You betcha!
