Joe Biden’s America: Two-Tiered System of Justice at Work

More evidence of a two-tiered justice system in Joe Biden’s America has emerged, as two individuals who confessed to arson in the burning of an Atlanta Wendy’s restaurant during a Black Lives Matter protest in 2020 have received lenient sentences.

Chisom Kingston and Natalie White were charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree arson and two counts of first-degree arson for their involvement in violent acts during BLM riots in 2020. However, their punishments appear far too light given the severity of their actions.

Under their plea deals, both Kingston and White were sentenced to five years of probation, a $500 fine, and 150 hours of community service. This sentence is in stark contrast to the treatment of some Jan. 6 demonstrators at the U.S. Capitol, who, despite not engaging in violent acts, including those who never entered the building, have been sentenced to several years in prison.

This highlights the disparity in how the federal government has treated dissent, harshly punishing peaceful demonstrators while allowing those involved in left-wing acts of terrorism during the violent summer of 2020 to remain free.

The arson at the Wendy’s restaurant was triggered by the death of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, who was fatally shot by police in June 2020. Brooks had been accused of assaulting an officer and stealing his taser. Video evidence showed Brooks aiming the taser at an officer, leading to his shooting.

Two days after this incident, a large crowd gathered at the Wendy’s restaurant, which was subsequently set on fire. The police investigation revealed that multiple incendiary devices were used to start the fire at various locations in the building. Video evidence implicated Natalie White, although she did not start the fire that ultimately destroyed the restaurant.

Kingston, White, and another arson suspect were arrested shortly after the incident, with at least 36 individuals taken into custody that evening.
