Rioters Indicted For Alleged Molotov Cocktail Attack On Police Cars…Here’s How Much Time They’re Looking At

(Tea Party PAC) – An upstate New York woman and two Brooklyn attorneys were indicted on Friday on federal explosives and arson charges for allegedly throwing Molotov cocktails at NYPD vehicles during George Floyd riots in New York City.

And they’re looking at life for such an act.

That’s right, folks. Even in lawless New York City you can’t just torch a police car and get away with it!

New York Post reports:

Samantha Shader, 27, of Catskill, is accused of hurling the makeshift explosive at an NYPD vehicle occupied by four police officers on early Saturday morning, May 30.

Prosecutors allege Shader bit one of the officer’s legs when she was being taken into custody.

Around the same time, Brooklyn lawyers Urooj Rahman, 31, and Colinford Mattis, 32, were accused of tossing their own Molotov cocktail at an unoccupied police vehicle in Brooklyn during a separate attack.

All three face life in prison on the seven-count indictments, charging them with the use of explosives, arson, use of explosives to commit a felony, arson conspiracy, use of a destructive device, civil disorder, and making or possessing a destructive device.

“Such criminal acts should never be confused with legitimate protest,” said United States Attorney Richard Donoghue in a statement. “Those who carry out attacks on NYPD Officers or vehicles are not protesters, they are criminals, and they will be treated as such.”

Thankfully, no police personnel were hurt by explosives. Shader managed to light her bottle, but it never ignited. The explosive tossed by Rahman and Mattis did ignite, however, and set the empty, parked car on fire, the prosecution is alleging.

Shader, whose actions were allegedly filmed, has an extensive history of crime which includes arrests in 11 different states, the prosecution claims.

In January of last year she was arrested for interfering with a police officer in Waterford, Connecticut.

A few years earlier, she was convicted in February, 2017 for posession of a controlled substance in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

The Post notes:

Both Rahman and Mattis were described as humble Brooklynites who worked their way to prestigious law schools and promising careers.

Mattis, who was on furlough from Pryor Cashman before his arrest, has been suspended. He had been a member of Brooklyn’s Community Board 5, but was removed by the borough president for lack of attendance, according to board chair Andre Mitchell.


  1. Trusting in God that these criminals get their just deserved ans spend a very long log long time in jail for their actions.

  2. Three being addressed to violations of the First Amendment to peaceably assemble–just a small start. What about the hundreds to thousands who have done the same and are NOT being addressed. What about the thousands to millions as some have alleged who have stood by cheering while watching violations, destruction and yes murders in the protests? We rightfully charge those in the Floyd tragedy four officers of their criminal violations of law including charges of aiding and abetting (including one who stood and watched and allegedly did nothing to stop the crime). The same standard as a matter of uniform application of law is required not only as a matter of non- discrimination but also as the demanded elements of the protesters themselves of “no one is above the law”, “black lives (and property) matter”, and “anti-fa”–among many others. As the Pledge of Allegiance proudly and rightfully states in conjunction with liberty, “Justice for all”.

  3. I’ll believe it when it happens. The left will holds these tools up as heroes. And CNN and MSNBC will have their lawyers on to say how “innocent” they are. The usual clap trap from those fools…

  4. I’d bet these criminals were pushed through Law School on the Taxpayers dime. Now we’ll be supporting them FOREVER !!!

  5. Please KEEP TRACK of these criminals all of the way through court convictions AND sentences – LETS SEE HOW MUCH TIME EACH ONE RECEIVES . THEN ….. and ONLY THEN will LAW ABIDING CITIZENS give our justice system a SPECK of RESPECT FROM US !!!!!!!!!

  6. It it now at the point in our country where all those violent video games this generation played with as kids has numbed them for realizing the dangerous tactic they think is ok to do against police. Remember stupids of the world: if it weren’t for our police defending your city, region or municipality, this country would be no longer free. How do you think you earned the privilege of living in a free country? Go see what it’s like in Iran where lawlessness rules and try it on for size. Maybe then you’ll see how you are treated if you try to kill someone who is keeping you safe and secure. Yes there are bad cops, but there are many, many more good cops. Try doing it with speaking out at community events designed to ask for your input, to hear your complaints and hear how they will address them. Do it in a democracy where change is possible, not by trying to kill someone who is doing his job and keeps us safe. Do you even know whaat tyranny is or Iiving in a socialist republic? Move to Venezuela. You will be amongst your kin.

  7. Humble Brooklynites?
    Give me a break! They are criminals pure and simple. Lock ’em up, throw away the key. At least that might stop their gene pool from expanding. They obviously have no sense of right or wrong which in itself is a mental deficiency.
