The first acquittal of a January 6 rioter has happened and I would imagine the left is about to lose its collective mind.
Joshua Black of Alabama has been acquitted of felony obstruction.
This is something that will surely not sit well with Democrats and liberals.
Blood of Jesus
There is video evidence of Black in the Capitol on that day, but he had a special reason for being there.
He stated, "I had accomplished my goal. I pled the blood of Jesus on the Senate floor. You know, I praised the name of Jesus on the Senate floor.
"That was my goal. I think that was God's goal."
U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Black had a "unique stew in his mind," clearly wondering if Black was all there or not and had the ability to distinguish right from wrong.
According to Judge Jackson, the prosecution was unable to prove that his intent was to disrupt Congress' certification of the election.
Black was convicted of other charges, however, including disorderly conduct and carrying a dangerous weapon. Black had admitted to carrying a knife.
He stated, "I wasn't planning on pulling it. I just carry a knife because I do. I work outside, and you need knives, you know. I just, you're not allowed to carry guns in DC, and I don't like being defenseless."
Black is the first January 6 rioter that reached the Senate floor that has been acquitted during this debacle.
A total of 950 defendants have been arrested, which includes more than 284 that were charged with assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers or employees.
While all this is happening, we continue to see a lack of prosecution of rioters from the George Floyd riots as well as any arrets and indictments in all of he pro-life centers vandalism.
This is a one-way Justice Department right now.
