(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that two elitist, far-left lawyers accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail into a New York Police Department vehicle last weekend must have their bail revoked and return to jail.
Attorneys Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman charged in Molotov cocktail attack on @NYPDnews are now back in federal custody after the U.S. Court of Appeals reversed bail decision by the District Court.

This is a pretty remarkable story, considering NYPD has been turning criminals out on the street, not only amid widespread rioting and violence, not only as law-abiding New Yorkers were confined to their homes, but even beforehand.
On Monday, Breitbart News reported:
“The two attorneys, Colinford Mattis, 32, and Urooj Rahman, 31, reportedly hurled a Molotov cocktail at a police vehicle in the 88th Precinct in Fort Greene Saturday as tensions escalated in the area.”
Mattis works at the Pryor Cashman corporate law firm and was suspended without pay after news of his arrest.
He had already been furloughed since April due to the coronavirus pandemic. He is a human rights lawyer.
And now he’ll need to find someone as radical as he is to defend him!
They had been released on a $250,000 bond. Rahman’s bail was posted by fellow layer Salmah Rizvi, who just so happens to have been an intelligence official in the Obama administration providing the former president with information for his daily briefing.
We always told you that administration was full of radicals!
Prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York, however, were not satisfied with the suspects’ release and filed an appeal.
Mattis graduated from Princeton University and New York University Law School. Rahman graduated from Fordham Law School. She threw a beer bottle with a lit fuse into a damaged police car, setting the console alight; no one was injured.
“The pair also passed out Molotov cocktails Friday night to crowds who were clashing with police so others could cause more destruction, prosecutors said. Authorities said they later found additional incendiary devices in their car,” Fox News reported.
After the appeals court ruling, they were taken into federal custody by U.S. Marshalls.
