No Jail Time For Convicted ANTIFA Shooter!

Another example of the judiciary being soft on left-wing terrorists?

Despite being convicted of seven felonies, ANTIFA shooter Samuel Young will get no prison time after being found guilty for a July 2020 shooting on an Aurora, Colorado, highway that injured two. 

According to local Denver news sights, Young, 24, was sentenced to 120 days in jail followed by five years of probation. He’s credited for the 50 days he’s already served in jail.

Earlier this year, Young was convicted of seven felonies, including two counts of second-degree assault, four counts of attempted manslaughter, and a single count of illegally discharging his gun.

Young fired five shots during an ANTIFA/BLM protest against police violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death on July 25, 2020.

The Black Lives Matter protesters and ANTIFA “activists” were blocking all lanes of traffic on Interstate 225 when a Jeep driver approached the group from behind and drove through the group.

As protesters ran to get out of the driver’s path, Young fired five shots, with two of the shots hitting the back of the Jeep and two shots hitting fellow Black Lives Matter protesters. One man was shot in the leg, and another bullet grazed the head of a protester. The driver of the Jeep was not hit.

Arapahoe County prosecution was seeking six years in the prison, which was significantly less than the maximum of 16 years Young faced under current sentencing guidelines.

According to local TV affiliate FOX31 Denver, Judge Ben Leutwyler said there were a number of factors to consider in Young’s case, including rehabilitation and deterrence.

“Your actions were horrific,” he told Young, pointing to the crowd size.

But the judge also pointed to Young’s lack of prior record, his work in the community, and actions showing remorse following the shooting.

“I’ve struggled since the day the jury returned their verdict because this has been an unusual case,” Leutwyler said, according to the Denver Post. “This has been an unusual case… I all too often see folks who are repeat offenders. You have no criminal history. You are a young person, 24 years old, well-educated, you have a history of helping others, you’re needed at home. And you shot wholly indiscriminately into a crowd of hundreds of people.”

During the sentencing hearing, Young apologized to those he shot and took responsibility for his decision to shoot.

“It all happened so fast; there was no time to think, just to react,” he said. “My reaction was wrong… I cannot take bullets back. I immediately regretted what I’d done and wanted to repair the damage.”

In addition to five years probation, Leutwyler ordered Young to undergo mental health evaluations.

Young received five years of probation for each count, but each sentence will run concurrently, meaning they occur at the same time. Young will also have to pay restitution for each count, with the total being decided at a later date.

Young had been originally charged with attempted murder, but those charges were later reduced. Again, a sign of the liberal justice system being soft on ANTIFA and BLM protesters convicted of criminal acts.

According to the Denver Post, the driver of the Jeep, who contacted police after pulling off the highway following the shooting, was not criminally charged.

    Americans better grow some balls pretty soon, will the American people fight for anything or are you all so brainwashed you think everything will be just fine because this is America and we have the best government money can buy?

    The weird thing about all that bullshit was that the cops were protecting these assholes everywhere they went across the country. A regular Joe couldn’t get within a mile of them. Just proved this was a staged event by your friends at the FBI. Covering up crimes against Americans since the CIA killed Kennedy!
