Are states going to prosecute their rioters? Well, it just depends because some jurisdictions have declined to prosecute them while others have taken a far stricter approach.
“In a stunning development, our office has learned that every single one of the St. Louis looters and rioters arrested were released back onto the streets by local prosecutor Kim Gardner,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt tweeted Wednesday.

Footage of violent riots and rampant looting is coming out of nearly every major city in the U.S., but states vary wildly in their efforts to prosecute those responsible for the unrest.
While local police have had no issues arresting those engaging in violence, some jurisdictions have declined to prosecute them. Others, however, such as Texas and Missouri, are taking a far more strict approach and partnering with the federal government to press charges.
Arguably the most relaxed reaction to rioters came out of St. Louis, Missouri, where local prosecutor Kim Gardner refused to charge nearly 40 people arrested for rioting.
Why should police bother to arrest people when prosecutors refuse to press charges? Every time a police officer makes an arrest they are putting themselves in danger.
This is where the Soros prosecutors come into play.

The liberal states that don’t prosecute when they burn to the ground don’t dare ask for a dime of federal money to rebuild.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
