Default Leniency for defendants in Portland clashes could affect Capitol riot cases

Federal prosecutors are quietly letting violent rioters charged in the months long siege of Federal buildings in Portland with promises of good behavior.

Quote:
In recent weeks, prosecutors have approved deals in at least half a dozen federal felony cases arising from clashes between protesters and law enforcement in Oregon last summer. The arrangements — known as deferred resolution agreements — will leave the defendants with a clean criminal record if they stay out of trouble for a period of time and complete a modest amount of community service, according to defense attorneys and court records.
Oh but don't worry, the mostly peaceful protesters were just charged with minor offenses, right?

Quote:
Five of the Portland cases in which deals were recently struck involved a felony charge of interfering with police during civil disorder. Some defendants are accused of punching or jumping on police officers during the street battles. One individual was charged after being accused of shining a high-powered green laser into the eyes of officers seeking to disperse a riot outside a police union building.

Another Portland case recently settled through a deferred resolution agreement involved Alexa Daron Graham, who was indicted last September on a federal felony charge of pointing a laser at a small plane that the Portland Police Bureau flew during the unrest. A court filing last month said the case against Graham would be dismissed in December if she complied with the terms of the agreement.
Why the change to Federal prosecutors suddenly devaluing violent assaults, literally trying to kill police officers piloting a small plane, and attempts to permanently blind police officers into offenses barely worth a slap on the wrist?

Quote:
“Obviously there was a change in direction from Washington, and once they changed the U.S. attorney, that seemed to change the tone,” said John Kolego, a defense attorney based in Eugene, Ore., who handled one of the Portland cases.

“They had their marching orders from Barr before, but the tone is definitely changed,” Kolego said.
Let'em Go Joe has declared open season on the police to the delight of the radicals running the Democrat party. But don't worry, the Biden regime after a secret investigation declined to bring charges against the officer who fatally shot a Capitol protester for climbing through a broken window. First and foremost under Biden’s rule justice revolves around politics.
