Anarchists in Oklahoma have learned a harsh yet righteous lesson: the Sooner State doesn’t kowtow to Antifa and its ilk.
SEE ALSO: These States Are Prosecuting Rioters
Per the Washington Examiner:
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said on Friday that he chose to pursue the toughest charges against the rioters because he does not support the lawlessness that has taken place in some parts of the country, including the “police-free” region of Seattle known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protests, or CHOP.
“This is not Seattle,” he told the Oklahoman. “We’re not putting up with this lawlessness here.”
Prater leveled strict charges against many of those who were arrested during the protests. Isael Antonio Ortiz, 21, Eric Christopher Ruffin, 26, and Malachai Davis, 18, were hit with terrorism charges after police alleged that Ortiz burned an Oklahoma County sheriff’s van during protests on May 30.
Ruffin is accused of encouraging “wanton destruction” by streaming Ortiz on a Facebook Live post in which he was also heard saying officers who harm black people should be killed. Ortiz has also been accused of attempting to burn a bail bonds shop along with Davis, who is accused of breaking the bond shop’s windows with brass knuckles he was filmed wearing.
Davis’ attorney is calling the terrorism charges “unconstitutional.”
