BLM Princess Gets Wrist Slapped for Torching NYPD Car:
A now-disbarred lawyer, Urooj Rahman, was caught on video throwing a Molotov cocktail into an NYPD cruiser in the name of George Floyd. The car she was riding in also contained a Budweiser bottle stuffed with toilet paper and a can of gas, as well as her accomplice and get-away driver, Colinford Mattis, who is also a lawyer.
BREAKING: Urooj Rahman, a public interest lawyer who firebombed a police cruiser during the 2020 George Floyd riots, was sentenced to just 15 months in prison on Friday after the Biden Justice Department intervened on her behalf.

Rahman asked not to be sent to prison at all.
“I’m so incredibly sorry for my reckless and wrong actions,” Rahman explained to U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan in a courtroom packed with supporters. “I don’t think there’s enough words to express my sorrow and regret. I completely lost my way in the emotion of the night.”
“You’re a remarkable person who did a terrible thing on one night,” Judge Cogan said, referring to Rahman’s choice to practice public interest law and battle social injustices. “It displays an amazing amount of arrogance. It’s just a very arrogant way to think.”
Cogan handed down a 15-month sentence to Rahman, who was also seen on video passing out firebombs to other rioters. --->READ MORE HERE
Molotov cocktail-tossing lawyer sentenced to 15 months for torching NYPD car:
A former lawyer who torched an NYPD police car with a Molotov cocktail at a George Floyd protest in Brooklyn was sentenced to more than a year in prison Friday.
Brooklyn federal court Judge Brian Cogan admonished Urooj Rahman before handing down the 15-month sentence, calling the firebombing an “attack on the rule of law” carried out by someone who took an oath to uphold the Constitution.
In the United States, Cogan told Rahman, you “go to the ballot box, not the bomb” if you’re driven to fight for social justice. He added she showed an “amazing level of arrogance” with the attack.
“What a bomb does cannot be undone,” the jurist said.
Rahman copped to conspiracy to commit arson in June for the May 29, 2020, firebombing near the 88th Precinct station house in Fort Greene. Under the plea deal, federal prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York said they would seek a maximum two-year prison sentence for Rahman.
Rahman, accompanied by fellow lawyer Colinford Mattis, hurled a Motolov cocktail at the unoccupied police car as protests over the Minneapolis, Minn., police killing of George Floyd raged on the streets of Brooklyn that night.  --->READ MORE HERE
