Hunter Wallace writes at Occidental Dissent:
Jacob Goodwin was found guilty this evening of malicious wounding in the DeAndre Harris case in Charlottesville. The jury recommended sentencing him to 10 years in prison:
“After a little more than an hour of deliberations, a jury on Tuesday found Jacob S. Goodwin guilty of malicious wounding in the group beating of DeAndre Harris following the Unite the Right rally last summer.
Goodwin, 22, and his mother mouthed, “I love you,” to each other after the jury’s verdict was read to the court.
The jury recommended 10 years in prison with the option of some suspended time, a $20,000 fine and empathy training. A formal sentencing hearing was set for Aug. 23. …”
I expected as much from Charlottesville.
It was clear to me where this was going when DeAndre Harris walked free on March 16th. DeAndre Harris stalked a group of Unite the Right protesters returning to their vehicles and ambushed them at the entrance of the Market Street Parking Garage. He swung a flashlight and hit Harold Crews on the side of the head while his accomplice Corey Long attempted to steal his Confederate Battle Flag.
The incident was captured on video:
Corey Long and DeAndre Harris started that brawl in the parking garage. It happened in front of the Charlottesville Police Department while several police officers stood around, witnessed the altercation and did nothing. Harold Crews was attacked twice in front of that police station.
After the Charlottesville Police Department was presented with this evidence and dithered and refused to press charges, Harold Crews had to go to a magistrate to seek justice. The charges against DeAndre Harris were later reduced. Finally, he went to trial and walked free even though he unambiguously struck Harold Crews with the flashlight on video. He never spent so much as a day in jail. Instead, he was rewarded with a $166,000 GoFundMe campaign and was portrayed as a victim by the media.
Everything about Charlottesville is rotten and corrupt to the core. Tim Heaphy’s Independent Review found that the Charlottesville Police Department deliberately allowed Antifa to start a riot on August 12th. The lawsuits and the selective prosecutions that have come out of Charlottesville since then have revealed that law and order and equal justice are dead there. [More]
