Did you know you can rob a store at gun-point and get a lesser sentence?

A former US Army reservist and alleged Nazi sympathiser has been sentenced to four years in prison for his role in last year's Capitol riots.

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, 32, was a Navy contractor who held a government security clearance when he joined the storming of Congress in January 2021.

A jury convicted him in May on five counts, including a felony charge for obstruction of an official proceeding.

You can rob a store at gunpoint in California and get probation.

Those Code Pinkers who routinely infiltrate congressional committee hearings
and start screaming and shouting get charged with this same thing. Except for
them the sentence is nothing but a small fine.
