New York City Will Pay $13 Million to BLM Rioters

Democrats are following through on their promise to fundamentally transform America. They do this by punishing good behavior and rewarding bad behavior, including some of the very worst — even rioting:

New York City has agreed to pay more than $13 million to settle a civil rights lawsuit brought on behalf of roughly 1,300 people who were arrested or beaten by police during racial injustice demonstrations that swept through the city during the summer of 2020.

By “demonstrations,” the AP means riots; otherwise, the arrests would not have been necessary. Rioters being “beaten” means they resisted arrest so some degree of force was required to temporarily stop them from stealing and vandalizing in honor of the career criminal George Floyd.

With certain exceptions, people arrested or subjected to force by NYPD officers at those events will each be eligible for $9,950 in compensation, according to attorneys for the plaintiffs.

Not bad pay for breaking a few windows, stealing a TV set, and maybe setting fire to someone’s livelihood.

Needless to say, the next time the liberal establishment finds it expedient to seize on a preposterous pretext like Floyd’s fentanyl overdose to whip up the Democrat base into mass rioting, there will be even less effort to contain the mayhem.

The agreement, one of several stemming from the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests, allows the city to avoid a trial that could be both expensive and politically fraught.

That is, the media would have exploited the trial to glorify criminals and demonize those who do not want to pay them even more.

[A]ttorneys for the city maintained that police were responding to a chaotic and unprecedented situation, pointing to some unruly protests in which police vehicles were set on fire and officers pelted with rocks…

Sorry, racist oppressors. Unlike disputing leftist ideology on social media, throwing rocks at you and setting your vehicles on fire fall under the liberal conception of free speech. Seriously, moonbats are citing the First Amendment to justify a second wave of Black Lives Matter looting.

[M]any other cities across the U.S. are negotiating their own settlements with protesters who spilled into the streets to decry [law & order] after Floyd’s death…

For example, Philthadelphia has already shelled out $9.25 million to race rioters.

The money is expropriated from the same law-abiding citizens the rioters victimize. In Liberalese, this is called “justice.”

Sneers Wylie Stecklow, skeevy shyster for the rioters in New York,

“While the arc of the moral universe is indeed long, sometimes it needs reform to bend towards justice.”

It won’t take much more “reform” before American cities are indistinguishable from Mogadishu.

Democrat dominance literally means rule by criminals, as Joe Biden so aptly personifies.

On tips from Mr. Freemarket, Varla, Wiggins, and ABC of the ANC.
