Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Black Lives Matter rioter receives a lighter sentence for doing something more serious than almost everyone else who entered Capitol Building in January 2006.
The latest example could be the most impressive. Ayoub Tabri, a man who traveled from Alexandria in Virginia to Philidelphia (PA) in 2020 and set fire to a police car as a result of the Black Lives Matter Riots. That’s where a blatant example of America’s two-tiered justice system begins.
First, the government struck a sweetheart deal with Tabri, as they have with past Antifa arsonists (including the two lawyers who threw Molotov cocktails at cops), ensuring that he wouldn’t have to serve the mandatory seven-year minimum sentence. Already, that’d showed the DOJ was willing to work with violent BLM protesters in ways they refuse to work with even non-violent January 6th protesters, many of whom entered the Capitol out of confusion.
The prosecution then asked for an interim sentence between 37 and 46 months. Yet, Tabri didn’t even get that. The judge who was hearing the case only gave Tabri 364 days. This is less than one year for torched a police vehicle during riots. Grandmas, who claimed they could be allowed in the Capitol on January 6, took selfies and were placed in isolation.
It gets even worse when you learn the reasons for this extremely mild sentence. The tweets below contain the official documents. However, for additional sourcing information, check out this piece by The Philidelphia Inquirer.
Tabri was the winner of Diversity Visa (aka Green Card Lottery)
A sentence of 365 days imprisonment would make it an “aggravated felony”, which could lead to deportation or barring entry into the United States.

You see, Tabri holds a green card via the government’s lottery system, which is an insane idea in its own right. The United States should not be granting legal entry permits for people of foreign countries merely by pulling names from the hat. This seems dangerous and unjust.
However, I digress. The defense suggested that Tabri’s deportation would be triggered if Tabri was given more than 364 consecutive days. To which any normal response would be “so what?” The judge agreed with the reasoning, though, sentencing Tabri in a way that would ensure it wouldn’t qualify as an aggravated felony under federal law and making sure he could remain in the country.
This means that a BLM riots-related violent arsonist, who set fire to a police vehicle, was sentenced extremely leniently because of his immigrant status. A citizen of the United States has fewer rights now than a felonious illegal immigrant. If that’s not a perfect encapsulation of the two-tiered justice system, then nothing is.
