This is what constitutes justice in 2021.
A 49-year-old grandmother from rural Indiana was one of the first defendants to settle with the government for her actions during the Jan. 6th protests at The Capitol Building.
As part of her plea agreement Anna Morgan-Lloyd was sentenced to three years of probation, $500 in restitution, and 40 hours of community service. Under the terms of her probation, the grandma is also banned from owning a firearm, despite being unarmed on that day.
Morgan-Lloyd pleaded guilty to one charge of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in the Capitol despite not participating in any violence and was only in the Capitol building for an estimated 10 minutes, according to court documents. The agreement helped her avoid a potential six months behind bars.
To avoid jail time Morgan-Lloyd had to admit she has since become woke and stated through her lawyer that she is “ashamed that it became a savage display of violence that day,” she said in court, according to the IndyStar. “I would’ve never been there if I had a clue it was going to turn out that way, because it was never my intent to be a part of anything that is so disgraceful to the American people.”
Morgan-Lloyd was given a list of race-related books, documentaries, and movies to consume by her attorney, H. Heather Shaner, which were referenced in Morgan-Lloyd’s written plea, the IndyStar reported.
“I’ve learned that even though we live in a wonderful country things still need to improve,” the woman wrote. “People of all colors should feel as safe as I do to walk down the street.”
“She was very willing to learn about American history,” Shaner said. “When I offered her a book list, and the movie list, she got a library card because she lives in a remote part of Indiana.”
Morgan-Lloyd was also told to read “Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee” and watch Netflix’s “Mudbound” and documentaries “Slavery by Another Name” and “Tulsa Burning: The 1921 Race Massacre.”
Morgan-Lloyd’s mea culpa was apparently vital in the agreement for probation, according to Federal Judge Royce Lamberth, who oversaw the plea agreement.
“Some of these defendants are not going to do what you did. They’re not going to say they did anything wrong. They, to this day, would still participate in the demonstration,” said Judge Lamberth. “… I don’t want to create the impression that probation is the automatic outcome here, because it’s not going to be.”
Perhaps the Anitfa and BLM rioters — instead of having their charges dropped — should be forced to read the US Constitution to further their own education.
