Meet your oppressed Molotov cocktail tossers

American liberals are some of the best educated and stone cold stupid people in the world. Witness the 3 people charged this weekend for throwing Molotov cocktails at police vehicles in New York City.

Samantha Shader, 27, of Catskill, NY, decided to protest in Brooklyn over the death of a black man in Minnesota apparently at the hands of police. One officer already was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. I am puzzled by what the protests hope to accomplish because it seems the man's death is being taken extremely seriously, as it should.

NBC reported, "According to the charging documents, Shader allegedly threw a Molotov cocktail at 1:12 a.m. in Brooklyn Saturday morning. The FBI says that shattered two windows of the NYPD vehicle and caused damage to the vehicle while officers were inside. The complaint says that the FBI was able to get video of the incident from a witness."

The New York Daily News was a little more explicit.

It said, "Shader at first blended in with the diverse crowd of angry young protesters yelling at police outside the Brooklyn Museum after midnight Saturday.

"But suddenly, Shader, 27, of Catskill, New York, allegedly pulled out a bottle and emerged from the crowd. Apparently lighting the incendiary device, she shouted at other protesters as she ran toward the NYPD car.

"'Get out of my mother-f-ing way,' she screeched.

"That’s when she tossed the makeshift explosive at the police car with four officers inside."

Among the charges are four counts of attempted murder.

The woman from the Catskills was the first to land on Molotov Island. Saturday night, a couple of young and upcoming lawyers joined her.



The Daily News reported, "Two Brooklyn lawyers, including an Ivy League graduate corporate attorney, are facing federal charges over accusations they tossed a Molotov cocktail into an NYPD vehicle early Saturday morning during a protest over the police killing of George Floyd.

"Colinford Mattis, 32, a corporate lawyer and member of Community Board 5 in East New York, was charged along with fellow attorney Urooj Rahman with the attempted attack on an empty police cruiser parked outside the 88th Precinct station house in Fort Greene."

The report said he is with Times Square law firm Pryor Cashman.

That community board gig is a big deal. Jerry Nadler started off as a community board appointee. In fact, as a member of the community board, Mattis is in a position to make change.

The story said, "Authorities say Rahman, 31, tossed a bottle filled with gasoline through a broken window into the cruiser just before 1 am Saturday but the Molotov cocktail failed to ignite. Rahman jumped into a van driven by Mattis and they sped off, court papers allege.

"The attempted torching was captured by video surveillance cameras outside the precinct stationhouse on DeKalb Ave., according to court papers.

"Cops gave chase and stopped the van nearby on Willoughby St. They found the makings of another Molotov cocktail in the back seat along with a gasoline container, authorities say."

I doubt we will see justice for these three weekend terrorists. They are members of the protected class.

This is where American liberalism is today. No one will call them out for their acts of violence. Already their mob justice have killed one federal officer, Patrick Underwood, who was shot and killed by rioters in Oakland.

The press refuses to condemn the riots or the rioters.

Wolf Blitzer on several occasions has used his show on CNN to try to chastise the president for criticizing the press because this somehow endangers reporters.

Now would be a good time for Blitzer to denounce the real violence that not only endangers lives, but takes them.

Shader, Rahman, and Mattis give Blitzer (or anyone else) ample opportunity to denounce violence as thuggish without fear of being called racist because all three of them are privileged people.

They will walk. They shouldn't.

  1. The local Democrat prosecutors may let them walk, but I think these may be federal crimes. Could be a different ball game. This will also be a test of the FBI. Waiting...waiting...waiting... I'd say I'm growing old waiting, but I'm already old. Gary B

    1. The DC riots after Trump was sworn in and the soft touch displayed by our PC officials is exactly why we have riots; the consequences are little to none. However federal charges can be five years for crossing state line to riot.

    1. Per the NY Post ...

      He was furloughed in April amid the coronavirus crisis, his employer confirmed.

      On Fox his employer was quoted as saying

      “As we confront critical issues around historic and ongoing racism and inequity in our society, I am saddened to see this young man allegedly involved in the worst kind of reaction to our shared outrage over what had occurred,” managing partner Ron Shechtman said in a statement to The Post.

      He ain't gonna be working there any time soon. But like you said, that doesn't mean he doesn't have prospects.

    1. Just because there hasn't been return fire, doesn't mean that the hot war isn't already in progress (the man who fired 10 shots at an armed attacker and hit him 10 times is only an unscientific example).

  5. premeditated, they brought gas and materials to make the Molotov cocktail. This is not a case of going to a protest and things getting out of had. They went intending to burn things to the ground..

  7. Fort Greene park, where Geo Washington troops fought the British and escaped under fog to Manhattan. Crypt of the bones of Revolutionary War soldiers interred there at Fort Greene - more died on prison ships in the East River than died in battle of the revolutionary war.

    These domestic terrorists should be prosecuted for a captial crime during a riot. Erect scaffolds in Ft Greene and hang them if found guilty.

  9. "I am puzzled by what the protests hope to accomplish because it seems the man's death is being taken extremely serious, as it should."

    The riots have nothing to do with George Floyd's death, except for the fact that it was the needed excuse for the well-prepared riot organizers to go into action.

    The Left has shot all the arrows in their quiver, but have totally missed their target: removing President Donald J. Trump from the White House. All they have left is to riot & destroy property, hoping that people will blame Trump for the wanton destruction. A lesser goal for these misfits is to keep the USA from prospering, as the only hope to get socialism installed here is by persuading the citizenry to demand it, to stop the violence.

    This won't end well for any of us, but least of all for the rioters and their organizers. There's a good reason the White House has made appointing constitutional judges to courts across the land a high priority!

  10. Has anyone investigated the race of the people who filed complaints against Chauvin? What if this murder was not race related and Chauvin is just an evil man?

    1. Bingo! You get the prize for asking good questions. I’d go a bit further, tho: what evidence is there that a murder even occurred? The preliminary ME report said the knee to his neck didn’t kill him. The report didn’t even class the death as a homicide. Floyd said while he was still standing up after resisting arrest that he was having trouble breathing. It is likely based on the info we have now -which may change- that the stress of being arrested, resisting arrest, and knowing he was a convicted violent felon who was being busted for another felony triggered a heart attack which killed him independent of the cop restraining him with his knee. We don’t know yet, and neither does anyone else.

      It may be that the cops are all Kluxers. We don’t know that tho, and as you asked, we don’t know if there is any evidence at all that Chauvin is a racist. Maybe he is. Maybe he isn’t. Maybe he’s a really bad guy without being racist. When I was a young white suburban guy, I had a couple run ins with cops I am entirely satisfied were felony level criminals, so I do know there are bad cops out there. What I also know is that racism wasn’t required as an explanation. It’s easy to assume racism when there is a white cop and a black suspect, but so far as I know ‘Black convicted violent felon who resisted arrest and died of something other than being restrained’ is not evidence. If you google ‘George Floyd criminal record’ you’ll find that he pled DOWN to armed home invasion robbery in Houston and was sentenced to five years. Maybe he had turned around and was a good guy. Maybe that is a big lie from people who have an agenda which does not include justice. At this point we just don’t know. We don’t know if he knowingly passed a counterfeit bill, or if he was unaware. We don’t know if the cops were racist, and so far have no evidence for it. We don’t know much more than he was arrested, resisted arrest, said while still standing up that he couldn’t breath, subsequently died, and had serious heart problems. That isn’t evidence for murder.

    2. Better still for the left if the death of George Floyd wasn't a murder. It's more divisive as well as providing another flashpoint if a trial results in an acquittal.

    3. It doesn't matter what a perp does before an arrest. It is not the job of the police at any time to punish perps. Period. Get 'em under control, put 'em in the paddywagon. Take 'em in.

      When Tamir Rice (age 12) was shot in Cleveland, the cop who shot him just stood around a let him bleed. Better yet, he threw Tamir's sister into the squad car so she too could watch him bleed to death in the snow. Soldiers in the heat of combat show more humanity towards their enemies than that.

      My question is, who's teaching these cops to behave this way? Is it ex-military instructors who turn some police departments into occupation troops? Somebody needs to have a serious look at the training regimen.

      Yeah, yeah, yeah. Cops have a hard job. Try being the guy their kneeling on.

    Peaceful protestors or not, put yourself in the position of this driver, given what has been going on ... wtih a 10,000 gallon Molotov cocktail right behind him, and a city full of miscreants who would like nothing more than to ignite it and watch the pyre.

    All it would take, is for a few of them to lay in wait until he stops. Those few might not even be known to the peaceful protestors that just gave the miscreants the opportunity to get their 15 minutes of fame.

    This is one reason why blocking roads, particularly freeways, to protest is simply imprudent.

  15. Don, according to this link, Shader "Prosecutors say that Shader "has traveled the country committing various crimes, which include acts of violence and resisting arrest" including a 2019 officer interference conviction in Waterford, Connecticut.

    On Monday, a magistrate judge ordered her held without bail until a preliminary hearing on June 12."
    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjv3_-wtuHpAhUJVN8KHZ1GAZoQFjADegQIAhAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nbcnewyork.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fupstate-ny-woman-behind-molotov-cocktail-attack-on-nypd-officers-2-others-federally-charged%2F2440200%2F&usg=AOvVaw1F5Gh5QidMyxNVmEkv2Lcy

    So it sounds to me she's a professional Antifa terrorist. The other 2 are idiots. They are all charged with Federal charges that will get 5-20 years. Also, Shader is being charged with 4 counts of attempted Murder...that's a state charge. No bail means the judge will likely hold her for trial.

  16. Did they have their tax stamps from BATF for the incendiary devices? That at least should be a felony slam dunk.

  17. Now is a good time to donate to local police foundations that provide assistance to officers and their families when they are faced with a crisis. Not exactly a counter-protest, but more an assurance from the community to those that protect us.

    1. The problem with your suggestion is that a lot of the "blue brotherhood" haven't endeared themselves to normal Americans because of their storm trooper tactics during the China Virus lock down. Funny how they were standing down and letting "KKKlantifa" have their way in the streets of Portland and how the same crowd turned on them. Many of the cops in this country, by their heavy handed tactics over nothing issues and their lack of action when people were being attacked deserve the feelings of misgivings when it comes to defending them no matter what. Those days of "cop love" are long gone.

    2. Yes Acidulous, in some blue states the officers were over zealous in carrying out the orders of their governors. But without police officers doing their jobs it would be like Minneapolis everywhere, everyday.
      I live in a purple state and our police chief warned the protesters that they would be arrested if they committed any crimes. That night they arrested hundreds and some of our officers were hurt. In these troubling times we need our police officers to know that the community is behind them.
