    “Oops…my bad”.

    What exactly is “idealistic” about firebombing a police car and having reserve material to do the same to others?

  3. Runaway Roger

    What would make a young professional throw a gasoline filled……? Stupidity? Ignorance? Superiority complex (an updated version of the now cancelled God complex).

  4. Nothing sad about it.
    I have no doubt in my mind that these two anarchists would have gone on to aid and abet many a anarchist, anti-West, anti-American criminals.
    In other words, Democrat lawyers.

    I’m waiting to hear about more SCHOOL TEACHERS and college PERFESSERS getting arrested while rioting with Anteefa and BLM.

  5. C.L.

    It takes more than a “moment” of madness to make, carry and deploy several homemade bombs.

  6. Catfeesh?

    Excellent news. May that serve as a lesson to others.

  7. C.L.

    They won’t see any serious time, though.
    Their friends run the prosecution service and the courts (and the City).
    Ironically, their white privilege will save them.

  8. Candy

    Some kind of mental deviancy to see fire and destruction, as long as it is not their property. Psychopathic.

  9. H B Bear

    Wait. Let me get my tiny violin.

  10. Entropy

    Don’t know about the rest of you but I am totally cut up about it.

  11. Leigh Lowe

    The most disgraceful part of this story is that they were in possession of empty Bud Lite bottles.

  12. H B Bear

    Should have joined the Weathermen. Then get a free pass on domestic terrorism.

  13. notafan

    You are correct CL.

    Were did they plan to thrown the other still in their possession ?

    And had they thrown some prior to being caught on camera at the police car?

  14. Natural Instinct

    RULES ARE SHEEP NOT MORAL CRUSADERS LIKE US.
    The opening para…
    .
    It’s an audacious choice to pause in front of an Applebee’s restaurant on Flatbush Avenue and grant an impromptu interview to a video journalist shortly before you allegedly throw a Molotov cocktail into a police car. But the city was out of its collective mind that night, the Friday after the Monday George Floyd was killed. Urooj Rahman faced the camera looking high-strung and distracted, answering questions as her hands waved and flitted around her body and in front of her face as if they were birds escaping from a box. Rahman emigrated from Pakistan when she was 4 and now lives with her elderly mother in Bay Ridge; she works as an attorney at Legal Services in the Bronx, representing tenants without means in eviction proceedings. “This shit won’t ever stop unless we fucking take it all down,” she said. “We’re all in so much pain from how fucked up this country is toward Black lives. This has got to stop, and the only way they hear us is through violence, through the means that they use. ‘You got to use the master’s tools.’ That’s what my friend always says.”

  15. yarpos

    Impressive spin doctoring. The build up of the perps, down playing the incident and slowly transitioning to victims. Quite the apologist slimebag aint he?

  16. Dasher

    There are few things I care about less than the fate of these terrorists…made worse by the fact that they can’t claim to be brainless dopes. My only concern is that they won’t get their just deserves.

  17. Leo G

    What would make a young professional throw a gasoline-filled Bud Light bottle …

    Bud Light Malcontentedness?

  18. Bud Light Up your summer!

    Look. These people would be Senators if they didn’t get caught.

  19. Bob

    I’m so sad! I just can’t stop laughing.
    Lock those lowlife scum up and throw away the keys.

  20. Papachango

    Is this a pisstake or the plot of a new SBS miniseries?

  21. Tom

    Rule One for leftards: never take responsibility for your own actions. Rule Two: rules are for someone else.

    Then overlay the puritannical, infantile narcissism of the modern rich kid: if want everything that makes me feel good NOW! And don’t you dare hurt cute fluffy animals. What else? Oh yeah – Black Lives Matter and, if don’t join our new (Marxist) religion, you’re a WAAAAACIST.

    What do you mean I’m an urban terrorist? The molotov cocktail in my hand is just to tell the mean waaacist grown-ups we want social justice NOW! — toddler-level demands for instant gratification.

    And, of course, modern media for bored rich kids like New York magazine are on hand to fellate the toddlers and give them their lollies — even though they’re terrorists on a mission to destroy the USA. To feel good about themselves.

  22. Bruce of Newcastle

    They’ll be pardoned by the next Dem POTUS.
    Dead cert.
    And probably given house arrest due to covid.

  23. wal1957

    A terribly sad story?
    Nah!

    I had a look at this idiots twatterati feed.
    Most commenters are calling him out for being the apologist PC POS that he is.
    These scumbags deserve punishment. This was premeditated. I only hope that the loopy justice system doesn’t decide to take pity on them.

  24. Mater

    How very appropriate that she’s using a Shemagh to cover her face whilst doing it.

  25. Docket62

    Deterrence is one of the key planks used to keep lawlessness in check. Hence the threat of long prison sentences or substantial fines (AKA Victorian Government). These deterrence are extremely effective in 99.9% of cases because we all have too much to lose. A prison sentence of any sort will pretty much end all careers and career paths (unless you Are Plibers bloke and can simply ignore a drug trafficking conviction)

    Ive been in the middle of riots wearing a uniform. People do VERY strange things in these circumstances – they get caught up in the feral whirlwind of violence – reverting to base instincts and self protection. Those with a propensity for violence find a temporarily unrestrained environment.

    Oddly, they don’t have ready made bombs. They never had axe handles conveniently placed. They were just a mob – violent and consuming everything in their path, but quickly spent and subdued with the use of force and to a degree checked by deterrence. They stopped short of killing.

    This lawyer may as well have picked up a shotgun, it amounts to the same thing, and her actions act as incendiary to incite the acts of others with such propensity.

    This needed (and still needs) to be put down hard using military force where necessary. And people like her should rightfully be made an example of by sending her and her cohorts to prison for a very long time.

    You jail the ringleaders in these ‘riots’ and you remove most of the wind from their sails. Deterrence is re established, and law and order are returned.

  26. thefrollickingmole

    The only way for people as privileged as these (and ill add, largely by being smart and working hard) to claim to be victims of some sort is via collectivism.

    Rather than confront why they are successful as opposed to Billy Bongsmoke (the one not paying his rent/serial sperm donor & crim) they have allowed themselves to be educated into a conspiracy theory that “white supremacy” is responsible for keeping the po’people down.
    However they manage to ignore that “white supremacy” also sees Je**s, Indians, Asian etc minorities do better than “whites”.

    Its culture not race.
    And a lot of ‘po people (white/black/otherwise) owe their shitty status in life to how they were brought up, or the choices they have made as individuals.

  27. She’s covering her face with a copy of Arafat’s keffiyeh.

  28. Kev from Canberra

    I’m not sad, but I do have tears in my eyes right now.

  29. Robbo

    Minimum of 35 years. Sounds a bit light to me. These are the sorts of leftie wankers who are prepared to go to whatever it takes to achieve their weirdo wacky new world. They can now pay the full price for the damage and death they and their feral mates have caused. Minimum of 50 years sounds about right.

  30. Roger

    The latest in radical chic.

    Urooj Rahman is her name.

    Would be interesting to know what historical grievances were discussed around the dinner tabel when she was growing up.

  31. stackja

    USA Soviet supporters using a weapon, Finns fought Soviet tanks with.

  32. Alex

    Kev from Canberra “I’m not sad, but I do have tears in my eyes right now.”

    Kev you must get terribly lonely down there amongst all the marxist leaners.

  33. Youngster

    The lack of self awareness is stunning. This woman was literally taken in by the country she so hates. I wonder if she would be a lawyer if she had stayed in Pakistan? I wonder if there would be a free legal service to help people evicted from their homes? She would not be free to protest peacefully in Pakistan. She is biting the hand that feeds her, and she’s not even aware she’s doing it.

  34. Tel

    And the keyword here is “federal”, because the local police refuse to arrest anyone.

    It’s only after Trump finally lost patience with complete lawlessness that the Feds started to get involved.

    Interesting to note the “abandoned” police car … of course it never was abandoned. If you read up, you see the current FBI strategy is to park a very obvious police car in a very obvious location and then sit at a distance in unmarked cars filming what goes on. Someone attacks the “abandoned” car and the evidence is recorded … any direction they go from there and they are quietly arrested by a couple of FBI guys who just happen to pop up and take the suspect away in an unmarked car.

    Sit them down, ask how much Federal property they have been destroying today … show them all the video you have on them … done like a dinner. Hits the magic button … “That was Easy!!”

    The Feds don’t have any right to interfere in “local affairs” but hey … you damaged federal property.

    Now the really interesting question is whether POTUS has exercised his full power and gone after the communications channels, collecting evidence of coordination between groups. Damaging federal property is a bad look, but organising yourselves into a gang that spans multiple states and systematically damages federal property … that’s criminal conspiracy. I have a strong suspicion there is coordination, but I can’t prove it … the NSA could very likely prove it.

  35. Lee

    Nothing “terribly sad” about this pair of self-entitled, privileged scumbag terrorists at all.
    If they get their comeuppance (very unlikely with their mates from you-know-which-party in the legal fraternity working behind the scenes) it is only what they deserve.
    Had they been conservatives/right wingers/white supremacists you can bet there would be no sob stories or spin doctoring as in this case. Vilification and accusations of “terrorism” instead.

  36. Ravensclaw

    Why is this pending sentence “sad”?

  37. Roger

    Mmm, yes… they just happened to get “wrapped up” in a BLM protest.

    Here’s Rahman at that protest before her arrest suggesting police will get hurt & declaiming on the need to “bring it all down”, it being American society as presently constituted, one presumes.

    “My client is merely young and idealistic, Your Honour, and deserves a second chance.”

  38. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    “A terribly sad story”, from the ponce looking down his nose in the little postcard photo in his Tinder account, is walking, talking bulltish. These tarts are en route to fame and fortune, there are many precedents in the US.

    Americans love their decorated warriors – Audie Murphy, General Schwarzkopf and Lieutenant John F. Kennedy, an exceptional man – but the highest awards fall from on high and often to real, revered heroes like the magic negro’s¹ close advisor Bill Ayres, a murderous terrorist just like Yasser Crackafat.

    He was a filthy rich kid who knew everything, who targeted soldiers and bombed police stations too, and other public places like the Pentagon, the Capitol building and memorial statues to the police, because he didn’t like the government and he demanded communism for everyone even though they hadn’t voted for it. His Weather Underground gang had the mantra “kill the rich, kill your parents” – he must have suffered early baby boomer derangement syndrome like some of the angry loud boys here.

    He was a murderer. Bill never spent a day in the slammer for it, neither did his girlfriend. They were later afforded the lovely soft title of “activist” and the nongs made him a professor at the University of Illinois, a “Distinguished Professor” in fact and a “Senior University Scholar”. His skank also became a professor of law and they were both let loose in education and made a fortune.

    The only good that happened to Bill was his earlier slag blowing herself to bits making bombs for the gang to kill soldiers.

    ¹Spike Lee ® 2001. He said it, not me, don’t know why he is famous but this is officially attributed to him and he appears like his life matters a lot more than mine.

  39. Delta A

    Sad indeed!

    I will be sad only if she serves a day less than 35 years in prison.

  40. RJH

    She can probably thank her University & their indoctrinators/teachers? Mind you I don’t expect much help for any like-minded others intending on the same ideological path by any worthwhile coverage by the MSM. However sadly for her, there will be 35 years for some self-reflection on her own stupidity & gullibility

  41. Up The Workers!

    What would inspire a young professional with everything to lose, to go out and waste good money on buying a bottle of Bud-Light horse-piss in the first place?

    Now if only it was a Police Officer who threw a Molotov Cocktail into the open window of a car full of lawyers, we’d all happily shout that Officer a bottle of real beer.

  42. John Barr

    Nothing sad about that. That’s where all Lawyers should end up. Ay.

  43. JohnJJJ

    Would be interesting to know what historical grievances were discussed around the dinner table when she was growing up.
    I’d say it is not the family , it is the University culture.

  44. US Federal law is astonishingly harsh in sentencing.

    Other may say they do truth in sentencing.

    Even if they plea, they are likely to do 80-90% of their sentence.

  45. nb

    ‘In a moment of madness’
    There is no doubt in the world that this moment of madness had been cultivated within themselves for years. Anyhow, they’ll probably get congratulated by the sentencing authority and given a medal by NY state.

  46. Rabbi Putin

    Could’ve been me standing next to that police car.
    No sympathy, they knew the law.
    Throw the book at ‘em. There is nothing sad about proper justice being served, only reassuring satisfaction.

  47. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Now if only it was a Police Officer who threw a Molotov Cocktail into the open window of a car full of lawyers, we’d all happily shout that Officer a bottle of real beer.

    I’d happily shout said officer all the beer he/she could drink…

  48. Would be interesting to know what historical grievances were discussed around the dinner tabel

    More interesting to know to whom the grievences were attributed, and what remedies were canvassed.

    Urooj Rahman

    The offspring of Indians, Pakistani’s, Sri Lankan’s that emigrate to western countries have a terrible habit of turning out to be stinking filthy communists.

    So, what is Number’s excuse?

  51. Cassie of Sydney

    “Urooj Rahman”

    Ms Rahman is long time, hard-left, progressive BDS supporting, anti-Isr**l, Jooo hating activist. It is worth noting that the “young and idealistic” Ms Rahman was wearing a Pal*stinian keffiya covering her nose and mouth in imitation of Pal*stinian protesters during the riot. The truth is that Ms Rahman didn’t get “wrapped up” in anything…she deliberately participated in the BLM riot. It wasn’t a moment of madness, it was deliberate badness by Rahman and Mattis.

    This is the MSM scum trying to whitewash (excuse the waacist terminology) what Rahman and Mattis did. I wonder if Mr Spoor would be so bland in his descriptions when describing far-right culprits arrested for throwing Molotov cocktails and using such vanilla drivel as “wrapped up” and “in a moment of madness”? I doubt it.

  52. Fisky

    Iampeter believes their sentences should be fully commuted.

  53. AndrewWA

    Fantastic preparation to become an ambulance chasing lawyer (such as S&G in Oz).
    (and obviously RS in RSA)

  54. Lee

    This from Wikipedia:

    As incendiary devices, Molotov cocktails are illegal to manufacture or possess in many regions. In the United States, Molotov cocktails are considered “destructive devices” under the National Firearms Act and regulated by the ATF.[42] Wil Casey Floyd, formerly from Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, was arrested after throwing Molotov cocktails at Seattle Police Officers during a protest in May 2016; he pleaded guilty for using the incendiary devices in February 2018.[43]

    At Simpson County, Kentucky, 20-year-old Trey Alexander Gwathney-Law attempted to burn Franklin-Simpson County Middle School with five Molotov cocktails; he was found guilty of making and possessing illegal firearms and was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2018.[44]

  55. Zatara

    They won’t see any serious time, though.
    Their friends run the prosecution service and the courts (and the City).
    Ironically, their white privilege will save them.

    They didn’t burn down a Maccas, they went after a government law enforcement target.

    Neither of them have ‘white privelidge’ and the charges are both serious and Federal, not local.

    If they weren’t lawyers who are supposed to know better they might have gotten off with a few years in some low security NY state country club ‘detainment facility’. But they are lawyers and thus the perfect subjects to be used in making a point por encourager las autres.

    Their only prayer of not seeing significant Federal jail time is the current administration losing in Nov and a seriously leftwing AG appointed who has the time to bother with them.

  56. Zatara

    privelidge -> privilege

    He might be part of that group!

    If not him….then maybe his daughter. Wasn’t he gloating back in June how proud he was of his daughter participating in one of these BLM riots?

  59. Tel

    Of course … Ayn Rand wanted everyone to burn down their city.

    Since she is dead and can’t defend herself, anyone can make up anything to say in her name … and it seems many do. Some days she becomes Libertarian, while other days she sides with the black hooded goons. Hey, I wonder if the present day Objectivists could be encouraged to discipline their wayward membership? They would demand a fee I suppose … I would have to see the schedule, but if their rates are reasonable there’s scope for a deal.

    Butt at the least, until then, they will be someone’s bitch in jail (guess the stereotype I’m thinkn’).

  61. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer pair, serves them right. There should be a lot more joining them.

  62. Bela Bartok

    They’ll be let off with a warning because of their unblemished records and their desire which was only to fight injustice… $100 says we’ll never hear what happens, it will be memory-holed.

  63. Squirrel

    It’s all society’s fault (of course).

  64. Cynic of Ayr

    You’d wonder if this pair, sitting there with handcuffs on, and looking at the 35 years or so, would have the slightest self awareness, and the slightest intelligence, to think to themselves, “I went to School and I went to High School, and I went to College, and every single one of my teachers, lecturers and professors, taught me endlessly, that this was the correct way to think and do. THEY WERE LEFTISTS, AND THEY WRONG!”

  65. mh

    Now they face a minimum 35 years in a federal prison.

    Drain The Swamp.

  66. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    I sit and laugh as these worthless arseholes get what they deserve!

    Depends on the going price for a tin of paint, I think…
