 ("Indiana Woman Is First Person to Be Sentenced in Capitol Riot")

Sensitivity training? A $500 fine? A seven part primer on how to earn a get out of jail virtually free card?  Really?

I am definitely not an eye for an eye, strident law and order, kind of person. But was anyone watching the events of January 6th? Was this not a mob, an insurrection, a trespass on the very heart of our democracy?

And this is who the government charges? And then decides to make her read books as punishment?

Apparently the "I just got caught up in the moment" defense is a viable one here. This is certainly not the message I hoped would come from the court system after such a brutal attack on our police, on our Congress, on the very foundation of this nation.

This sentence was not a slap on the wrist of the Defendant but a slap in the face to those who watched in horror and disbelief as the events of January 6, 2021 unfolded.

For this Defendant, for this "tourist", it was, in her own words, the most exciting day of her life. Shame on her. 

And shame on us for our retort. Even the least guilty on this darkest of days should have received a punishment worse than the one ordinarily delivered to a jaywalker.

I just got here. I thought that you folks, what with Bidiin would have gotten things back on track, What was I thinking.? I should have staved in my nice warm safe environment. Why is this guy Munchkin allowed to control the story. ? Why is that chinless nutcase still running things? And that yellow-top thug still spouting off his despicable lies?
