  • Lawyers accused of torching NYPD car with Molotov cocktail offered plea deal


    for me, the most appropriate penalty should be to work one of those Coney Island games of chance, except they become the targets of Cops throwing Molotov Cocktails at them.

    The two lawyers charged with torching an empty NYPD van during a Black Lives Matter protest in Brooklyn last summer were offered a plea deal by federal prosecutors earlier this month, according to new court documents.

    The suspects, Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis, were offered the unspecified deal on Feb. 11, according to a court papers filed Saturday by Brooklyn federal prosecutors.

    Specifics about the proposed deal were not clear — nor was whether they accepted.

    Prosecutors asked for more time before the next status hearing in the case to “enable defense counsel to review the plea offers with the defendants and for the parties to engage in further plea negotiations.”

    The pair faced life behind bars when they were indicted last summer on charges including arson, conspiracy and use of explosives.

    As anti-cop protesters faced off with police outside the 88 Precinct stationhouse on May 29, Rahman allegedly tossed a Molotov cocktail at an empty NYPD van nearby.

    Mattis acted as the wheelman during the firebombing and drove off after the van ignited, but the two were arrested a short while later, prosecutors allege.

    Prosecutors said in a detention memo at the time that they were trying to pass out Molotov cocktails to protesters at the demonstration.

    Mattis, a graduate of Princeton University and the New York University School of Law, was an associate at corporate Manhattan firm Pryor Cashman, but had been furloughed last spring, according to the firm.

    Rahman was also a registered attorney in New York state, who was admitted to the bar in June 2019 after graduating from Fordham University School of Law.

    Attorneys for both Rahman and Mattis declined to comment.

      We can't hold a couple of actual domestic terrorists responsible when there are thousands of imaginary white supremacists on the loose!

        Good thing for them it was just a cop car and not a congresscritters car.

          Part of any deal has to be permanent forfeiture of their Bar memberships.

            Exactly ! Anything less is bullshit . Any Cop would be barred from law enforcement for life if they did it.

          heh, to bad neuvarican is gone. throwing a molotov cocktail qualifies as DPF. the throwers shoulda been shot to prevent & terminate. even a FBY agent could understand this. DoJ, probably not along with social injustice DA's.

            A much worse penalty would be to make them go to law school all over again. No pain could be worse.
