"When we say that the January 6th defendants are being mistreated, the question always arises compared to what? Because justice is a matter of law and law is a matter of treating people equally. That's really why you have laws. You wouldn't need laws if you treated everybody as an individual case. Well, hey, or a very good driver, so you can go faster. Hey, you're not a very good driver. You got to go a little slower. You don't need a speed limit. So a speed limit is a law, and in order to be meaningful as a law, it has to apply equally to everyone. Now, here is a settlement just announced by the Justice Department, the Biden DoJ. This was a settlement about the public protests by the left. The plaintiffs, by the way, in this case, were Black Lives Matter, a bunch of left wingers who attended these protests, these arose from the June 1 2020 protests in Lafayette square. You might remember those. They were aggressive, they were violent, and there were a lot of arrests made. In the aftermath of those protests. But very light prosecutions hardly any real accountability. And that itself is a stark contrast to January 6th. But now it turns out that the very people who mounted that protest are suing or have sued the government and demanded that there be changes in governmental policy and specifically in police policy. And guess what? The Justice Department has decided to sort of accept responsibility responsibility for what? Well, for ill treating the protesters for being a little too harsh, and so even though these protesters were treated with preposterous leniency, the government is essentially done a mayor culpa and agreed to do a whole bunch of things. Let's look at this. Changes to the agency's policies include quote. More specific requirements for visible identification of officers, officers, can just say, I'm an officer, you need to have visible identification. Number two, limits on the use of non lethal force. And procedures to facilitate safe crowd dispersal. Wow. Again, contrast to January 6th. Do they follow these methods? No, they were blasting all kinds of tear gas and all kinds of shock. Devices into the crowd and they used not only non lethal but lethal force on January 6th protesters. And so look at the disparate way in which these two incidents January 6th on the one hand and Lafayette square on the other are treated. In the one case, domestic terrorists, they've got to be locked up in some cases for a year or more. Throw away the key. Who cares if they're abused while they're there? Who cares if the guards have kind of a free hand in the way they treat them? No, we're not going to admit anything. In fact, on the contrary, we're going to go to sympathetic judges and try to keep them locked up even longer. Even people with nonviolent offenses, we're going to go after them, try to make sure they have served some jail time. Ruin their lives, get them fired from their jobs. Meanwhile, with the left wingers, oh, well, these are on our side. These guys are doing kind of what we would be doing if we were on the outside. So let's treat them as a special case. Let's be solicitous. Let's be let's make all kinds of agreements with them. That if they do this again, we're going to be even milder the next time. We went a little too far because you know what, some of us didn't have our badges prominently displayed and you know what some of us, well, we use non lethal force, but we didn't use the least non lethal force that we could have used to subdue the guy. So we're going to now agree that we need to use minimal non lethal force. Of course, when it comes to oath keepers and three percenters and right wingers of any sort, none of the supplies. None of these rules apply then it's open season on those guys then it's actually. Let's mobilize the force. Let's treat this as if the Civil War has erupted all over again. So you can see here why we see not just in theory. A flagrant miss application of the core principle of justice, which is equal treatment under the law. And I think we have to fully.

Our BLM and antifa being treated with this sort of scrutiny? Well, of course, you know, the answer to that, which is no. This is the same DoJ that is actively dropping cases. Here's a shocking figure that was confirmed by the FBI Charlie. There are federal prosecutors have charged more than three times as many people for what happened for four hours on January 6th than face federal charges for what happened for months the summer of 2020. This includes people who attacked federal officers who defiled federal property, destroyed federal property.

"Were peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square near the White House on June 1st marching chanting And then this house at about 6 30 half on hour before a citywide curfew was supposed to go into effect. Police advanced and was seemingly little warning fired tear gas and smoke canisters into the crowd. This was just before President Trump walked across Lafayette Square to pose for a photograph in front of ST John's Episcopal Church. The problem with how this unfolded is that if police wanted to clear the area, they had to warn the protesters first. And they had to do so loudly, so people who didn't want to be arrested could get away. The rules of engagement on DC streets were part of a settlement agreement reached in 2015. It ended a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of people who were caught up in the mass arrests in D. C in 2002. Moreover, Haley in Hilliard founded the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which represented some of the hundreds of people arrested back then they were held for 20 for 27 hours or more people were hog tied and stress and duress positions risk the ankle, A US federal judge approved a settlement agreement that's spelled out in detail. Exactly how police in DC needed to warn protesters before moving in. These procedures are very particular. They include, and that's why we wrote them this way, not just that. They have to give notice an opportunity. They have tohave officers at the farthest reaches of the demonstration who are certifying that they've heard that notice. But instructions from the police in Lafayette Square on June 1st were hard to hear..

Obama urges Americans to honor John Lewis' legacy by voting

"For the funeral of Congressman John Lewis rose to its feet with an up roar of applause during a eulogy from former President Barack Obama. Mr Obama talked about the selfless sacrifice of the civil rights leader and that the voting rights he fought for our under siege by President Trump, who's floating the idea of delaying the election. Joining us live to talk about CBS analyst Leonard Steinhorn. Great to have you, Leonard? Happy to be here so to other presidents were on hand. But it was poor former President Obama, who offered this impassioned defense of democratic ideals that he says are being threatened. He's been more outspoken, but not like this. Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the
