Why did he get a felony sentence? His photo is up above.

Poor dumb bastard.

He thought he would be treated as a honorary white man because he was in the mayonnaise putsch.

Let me guess, this sentence isn't long enough and why aren't we a dictatorship that executes people like this?

The moment when you have trouble reconciling with calling for harsh sentences for treason versus the injustice of the American justice system.

Nobody is surprised that the non-white guy gets a harsher punishment.

After all is said and done, reporters will write articles about how PoC in the insurrection got harsher sentences and will provide documented evidence and nothing will happen because everything is farked.

So white guys storm the capital on Jan 6th and get 4 months, but a black guy gets 14 months for posting from his hotel room?

Huh. Imagine that.


I wonder why he is getting such a long sentence? I mean, his statements don't seem to be out of line from other "rioters" or "protesters" on Jan 6th. Oh, yeah, I see, he's a durty brown guy and is probably a sooper criminalz type person.
 
2021-10-22 12:41:03 PM  
Oh, that judge? Tanya Chutkan?

That's the judge Trump drew in his suit against the 1/6 committee. I don't think she's gonna be doing him any favors.

Oh yeah forgot that one.

He only got vanned because he's black.

God you naysayers just don't miss a trick.
 
2021-10-22 12:41:43 PM  
14 months? Well, that's better than "$100 fine and time served,"  I guess.

So, she isn't sentencing just black criminals to more than what prosecutors seek in terms of sentence.

She routinely sentences beyond those recommendations, be it a black or white offender.

Making this asshole a victim because he is black is asinine.

He wasn't at the Capitol, he's going to prison for posting threats from his hotel room.

Reading the article, he really laid it on thick at the sentencing hearing.  A note to criminals, just because other criminals got a lesser sentence for the same crime, doesn't mean that you deserve a lesser sentence, as well.  Sometimes, the other guy should have gotten more, as well, which the judge in front of you can do absolutely nothing about.

I think the black lady judge would like to have a word with you about why she gave him the sentence she gave him. Actually, it's in the fu*king article. Go read it.

He is in the sense that they all should be getting very long prison sentences. Though, to be honest, even 14 months isn't anywhere near long enough. Now 14 years would be a bit closer for people that were actively breaking shiat.

I read what he wrote.  How could anyone in their right mind think that that is the kind of speech that is worth 14 months in the pokey?  Especially when so many others were actually THERE committing actual violence at the event.

That was a bunch of bullshiat, alt-right, empty threats.  And it wasn't even directed at an individual.
I've seen FAR worse stuff posted on Facebook repeatedly over the past 10 months.  They didn't even get a warning from Facebook, let alone an arrest and felony conviction.

I don't know if it's racism or what.  But this dude, idiot and RWNJ he may be, does not deserve 14 months in prison.

We are clearly missing a big part of this story.  Because if this is all there is, there is something seriously farked up going on.

FTFA:

Chutkan also said she considered Smocks' lengthy criminal record, during which Smocks frequently pretended to be a member of the military or law enforcement, as well as what she said was a lack of remorse for his actions.

"While I believe and continue to believe that every individual is capable of change and growth, I'm not optimistic in this case," Chutkan said. "It appears Mr. Smocks is still engaging in deception, and he does not appear to have remorse for his actions."

"All I hear is what you've suffered-you're being singled out, you're being prosecuted, you're the victim of racism," Chutkan, who is the third Black woman to serve in D.C. District Court, said to Smocks. "Not a single word of acknowledgment of the seriousness and enormity of what you did."

You might want to find a more worthy cause...
 
2021-10-22 1:03:35 PM  
I like how he accused the judge of being racist....when the judge is black.
Also it looks like he's gone from impersonating federal agents to impersonating retired colonels.

According to a sentencing memo filed by the Department of Justice, Smocks has a lengthy criminal history, including 18 prior criminal convictions "spanning from the early 1980s to 2006." Prior offenses include the production of fraudulent identification documents, bank fraud, forgery, stealing and multiple instances of falsely impersonating a federal agent. He completed his last term of supervised release in 2019.

Judge called him out on that lie too.
