The radicalized lawyer who tossed a Molotov cocktail at a squad car in Brooklyn, at the height of the George Floyd Riots, pleaded not guilty to all charges, NY Post reported
Urooj Rahman, 31, who was previously ordered held at the Metropolitan Detention Center pleaded not guilty to charges of use of explosives, arson, using an explosive to commit a felony, arson conspiracy, use of a destructive device, civil disorder and possessing and making a destructive device in the alleged May 30 attack in Brooklyn. These all add up to 45 years in prison if convicted.
Her partner in crime, Colinford Mattis, who was driving the get-away van, pleaded not guilty to his charges last week. Mattis, 32, a graduate of Princeton University and the New York University School of Law, was allegedly behind the wheel of the minivan they were in when Rahman allegedly hurled the device, NY Post reported.
TVJ previously reported: The first several nights of the George Floyd protests were extremely violent, particularly in Brooklyn. Hours of footage of the crowd gathered from social media display the protestors, spitting at cops, cursing them out, and some rioters physically confronting them. By all accounts it was perfectly reasonable for NYPD to have a presence, since the initial protests triggered violence, looting and several murders all across the nation.
The radicalized Brooklyn born lawyer Urooj Rahman however did not see a need for police at these violent riots. Urooj Rahman, 31, was one of the two suspects in the brazen Molotov cocktail attack on a police car.
A few weeks ago a video interview taken before the attack with Rahman surfaced.
TJV reported: “I think this protest is a long time coming,” lawyer Urooj Rahman said in a videotaped interview filmed near the Barclays Center in Brooklyn at around 12:15 a.m. May 30.
“This s–t won’t ever stop unless we f–kin’ take it all down. And that’s why the anger is being expressed tonight in this way,” she said. The NY Post continued: During the four-minute interview, Rahman claimed to be unaware that cops had been hurt by protesters during violent clashes sparked by the police killing of George Floyd — but said de Blasio should have held back the NYPD “the way that the mayor in Minneapolis did.”
Although the protests have not been the center of media attention in recent weeks, they are still raging and still violent, as several have been shot and killed in the last several weeks, reporters attacked at public parks, Catholics assaulted for praying, homeless attacked with fireworks, private property invaded and many city officials around the nation still permitting the madness to sweep the country as radicalized leftists and assorted others continue to terrorize America and the world. Urooj Rahman is just the tip of the iceberg.
