Rigged System: January 6 PROSECUTOR Released on Bail After Stabbing Rampage

A former US Attorney who viciously prosecuted peaceful January 6 protesters went on a stabbing rampage last week. He sent one person to the hospital and terrorized two other people. But rather than being subjected to the humiliating and overreaching prosecutorial misconduct that he specializes in, Patrick Scruggs was quickly released on bail within 24 hours.

Scruggs worked for the US Attorney’s office for ten years in Florida. That was the state that had more January 6 protesters arrested and indefinitely imprisoned without trial than any other.

Prosecutors went insanely overboard and continue to do so with the January 6 cases, even for the most minor misdemeanor offenses. There’s a different set of rules, however, when Democrats commit actual acts of violence and terrorism.

Patrick Scruggs was driving home on September 26th, just last week, when he got in a fender-bender on I-275 in Tampa, Florida. The driver who hit his sedan was waiting patiently in his vehicle. Police say Scruggs smashed the other driver’s window open and proceeded to stab the man multiple times. A couple stopped to try to help after the accident, and Scruggs waved the knife at them and terrorized them before fleeing the scene.

In other words, Patrick Scruggs is accused of committing a crime that was more violent and terrifying than anything that any January 6er did in the mostly peaceful protest. The other motorist was hospitalized with serious injuries.

 

Scruggs was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault and armed burglary. He was in jail for less than a full day when he was allowed to post bail and walk free.

That’s a far cry from the treatment that Scruggs has afforded Trump supporters. Take, for example, the “Lectern Guy” from the protest. His real name is Adam Johnson. He picked up Nancy Pelosi’s lectern on January 6th and carried it through the Capitol rotunda, so his friend could take the now-famous picture of him waving and appearing to carry it off.

What’s not conveyed in the photo is that Johnson took the lectern back and placed it where he had picked it up. He didn’t take it home and he didn’t damage it.

Adam Johnson walked through an open door at the Capitol where hundreds of other people were already present. He picked up a lectern, walked about 20 yards with it, and put it back. He did not harm anyone and he left after that.

As Johnson noted in an op-ed about his case in The Federalist, “I had made the inexcusable decision to enter a building through open doors and carefully move furniture without permission.”

Patrick Scruggs was the US Attorney assigned to Adam Johnson’s case. When Johnson was first arrested, he was placed in solitary confinement for four days. He wasn’t allowed to shower or brush his teeth during that time.

At his arraignment, Scruggs argued that Johnson’s conditions of release—if he was to be released at all—had to fit the seriousness of the “crimes” that he committed. The federal government confiscated Adam Johnson’s firearms and his passport. He was given a nightly curfew. To make sure he was following the curfew, he was forced to wear an ankle monitor. He had to submit to being drug tested at any time of the day or night, at random, by the federal government. Plus, Adam Johnson was not allowed to travel outside of a few counties in Florida near where he lived.

Johnson was sentenced to 75 days in prison, a year of supervised release, and a $5,000 fine for gently moving some furniture.

Patrick Scruggs, the prosecutor who demanded those outrageous release conditions for Adam Johnson, was released with no conditions in less than a day after he nearly killed some poor guy who was unlucky enough to get in a fender-bender with him. The system takes care of its own.

We see this over and over again and it is an outrage every time it happens. The neighbor who tackled Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and beat him up, breaking several of Paul’s ribs in the process, was sentenced to just nine months in jail. Meanwhile, a Trump supporter who moved a little fence at the Capitol on January 6th got 17 years in prison.

Patrick Scruggs deserves serious prison time for his stabbing rampage on a Florida freeway. Do you think he’ll get it? Or will he receive a slap on the wrist?

  1. One MORE example of our broken justice system. How many more criminal offenses will be downplayed because the perpetrator happens to be a Democrat?
    I have heard via alternative news sources that our system will be getting an overhaul in the near future. I hope to God they are right.

  2. I always heard the punishment should fit the crime. If the crime is moving a gavel around and returning it and walking into an open public building, then penalty should be maybe a small fine simply because of the circumstances. That’s it. No Jail, No drug testing no restrictions. In any other place that would have been the results but the drama set up at the capitol by the deep state. What penalty did the 50 FBI agents suffer who caused a riot?

  3. You don’t have to be a revoluionist to believe the the Democrats stole the electiion and put their duffas stuge into office…and now, they must make an example of thise Patrotic American who was dumb enouth to protest their conspirancy. Thus, we’re seeing the excessive jail sentenceing of protesters by Democrat’s Dirty Judges. Adolf has would be proud of what the Democrats have morfed into.

  4. Our Justice systems, criminal and civil, have been broken for a very long time. The primary reason is the fact that the judiciary is almost completely dominated by democrat/socialist/fascist judges who are biased and in many instances not very bright. They do the bidding of their far left political superiors and the far left civil and criminal lawyers that contribute to their political campaigns. The systems are probably broken beyond repair since the democrat/socialist/fascist party continues to dominate our federal government as well as many state governments. The addition of Soros prosecutors to the systems makes the foregoing conclusion even more depressing.

  5. He’ll get a slap on the wrist, if he gets anything. All dumborats and Rino’s are treated as royal in this country. Look at Hunter a convicted felon caught with everything you can name, and nothing happens. Nothing is gonna happen, to him or lil Joey, they’re all part of the regime. If your a true patriotic American citizen you can go to prison for life if you spit on the sidewalk. But be a dumborat and burn down that same city a patriot spit on, and you’ll get a reward like patric colors, lots of money, and a pat on the head. Its sick what we true Americans have allowed to overtake this country, and I’m just as guilty, thinking it would never happen. Well it has happened, and we better stand up and take it back, because another 4 yrs like we’ve almost went thru, there will be nothing left. God help us

  6. The SOB should get treated just like the poor people from Jan 6th, but we all know that will not happen I guess that he is special so you know nothing will come from this if that was you or me we would have been brought up on charges right away and locked up for attempted murder or something. But when you are in the SPECIAL CLUB YOU GET SPECIAL TREATMENT!!! I have to agree with Mr. Cottrell above he states the whole thing in a nutshell well said.

  7. So this is all okay in the state of Florida where we have a Republican Governor and Legislature. Who’s minding the store, this is okay with DeSantis? Let’s call it what it is, attempted murder. It’s okay to treat protestors like crap but let’s cake walk a Communist Prosecutor who attempted to murder another motorist over an accident!
    This under the watch of DeSantis who wants America to elect him President, so is he another baby kissing, lollypop stealing politician, a wolf in sheep’s clothing perhaps? He’s running around the country talking about how he protected Floridians from tyranny but is he turning a blind eye to this crap, where’s the equal justice Governor?

  8. Now do you all get it? Rhino’s at every corner. Can you tell who is being bought out? Remember how many have lied about President Trump to save their own or even get cushy jobs for it? Honest people can’t be bought ever. Now in my world if I don’t like someone I don’t set out to destroy them. I simply choose not to associate with them unless it is something out of my control then I know how society expects me to act. I want to know where are the mother’s for all these traitors, liars, cheats, killers, thief’s and corrupt swamp creatures. Also do your families really believe your lies? Jason Aldean is so right! Small towns are the real Americans who believe in law and order. Where I grew up if one person needed help the entire county was at their side, not to mention the surrounding counties also. We earn every penny we keep and don’t like our taxes wasted. We are the backbone of this country and only one person really knows about us and that is President Trump. Wonder why President Trump is told often and by millions that he is loved? He gets it!

  9. This crooked idiot that’s putting January 6th people in jail is a nut job and in my heart I really do believe that Nancy Pelosi with the help of FBI planned and organized January 6th why else would she turned down President Donald Trump’s offer to have the National Guards there at the capital for extra security why would she turn him down because she could not afford to have extra security there cuz she knew what was going to happen and as far as I concerned she needs to be prosecuted because she is responsible for the death of that brave young Soldier she’s dead because of Nancy Pelosi. And the idiot prosecutor will never spend one day in jail cuz he will have a corrupt Democrat judge to let him off with just a slap on the wrist to go out and hurt more innocent Trump supporters I hope he is barred from ever practicing law again
