Generally criminals like this don’t get the benefit of the doubt, even in Massachusetts. Turns out he was currently out on bail for robbery and armed assault to rob, but instead of keeping a low profile he elected to continue to confront police officers for YouTube likes. Then he screwed up by trying to befriend Antifa while they were violently assaulting police, refused to disperse, and as a result he was the only defendant who did not receive bail today.
Watching his friends complain about it on his YouTube channel is making my day.
I love life.
But it gets better. DA Rachael Rollins, who is notorious for not prosecuting criminals like this, attempted to have the charges dropped against all defendants today. The judge denied her leniency.
I’m in court for the arraignments of a few dozen counterprotesters arrested at the Boston Straight Pride Parade. For each defendant who has no prior criminal record, prosecutors have moved to dismiss the disorderly conduct charges, but the judge has denied it 3 times so far. #WBZ

So far, prosecutors have moved to dismiss charges against 3 of the protestors, but the judge has denied all the requests.

Judges normally meet somewhere in between what the defense and prosecution ask for. But since Rollins essentially acts as a public defender, the Judge had to overrule her. Thank God he did, because if it was up to her we’d be living in a lawless society. It’s rare that two people as terrible as Josh Abrams and Rachael Rollins get destroyed like this in a courtroom, which makes this such a beautiful day.
