    Good stuff, glad the law works in favour of the people and not criminal scum. Oh wait...

    Hopefully he gets hit in the head with a lock at his next protest.

    Smacking your political opponent in the head with a bikelock and only getting three years probation sounds like a deal! Hope we see more of these!

    Some of the ultra leftist cities like having citizens like antifa. The judges, mayors don't enforce the laws and fully punish bad behavior. Even if they are violent. It's why these are not good places to be. It's best not to even go to these leftist cities and deal with some of these immoral crazy people that live there. I think the best thing is just to leave these people be. Even if I do enjoy watching self defense and a great knockout by proud boys every once in a while.

    This counts as precedent right?

    Does he still have a job...anywhere? Because if some people are losing theirs for offensive speech and he is actually violently assaulting individuals with a weapon and faces no social consequences I won’t be shocked, but will be disappointed.

    I'm guessing ultimately the reason the prosecutors would drop most of the charges is because the black clothing and face mask saved his ass. We have a video, but we don't see for sure who it is. If all the evidence they have is circumstantial, it's not enough.

    It probably would have enraged more Californians if he used a plastic straw instead of a bike lock.

    I believe "assailant" is the word your looking for.

    Also, this is not an egregious sentence.

    Yep. If he hadn't been wearing a mask, he would have been fucked. However, the arrest and subsequent plea deal will be on his record for life. So while not what he deserved, it'll still follow him forever.

    No. Bad human. We don't want people hit with bike locks.

    People get probation for assault all the time, especially when it's tied to protests. He should have gotten a harsher, shorter sentence imo, but people will freak out about this sentence for symbolic reasons.
