Nothing Is Anybody's Fault

It is someone else's fault. I'm not responsible. Those two sentences are the refrain of the 21st Century. Molotov cocktail-tossing lawyer who torched NYPD car blames booze and 'trauma'

A lawyer who torched an NYPD patrol car during the George Floyd riots is begging for a reduced sentence — whining that she was drunk and dealing with “unprocessed trauma” at the time, according to court documents.

She should have been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Instead she's getting 18 months to 2 years. But that isn't enough of the break because It Is Not Her Fault.

Rahman’s lawyer rattled off a laundry list of excuses explaining her decision to chuck the explosive device. These included “early trauma” from being a Muslim in post-9/11 America; “abusive partnership relationships”; and “the injustices that she has witnessed here and abroad,” including assisting refugees in Istanbul and Athens and helping low-income tenants in New York avoid eviction.

But Rahman sounded sober in a video interview to Loudlabs News NYC about 45 minutes before the car was torched, defending the protesters and saying that “people are angry because the police are never held accountable.”

The cops are not happy, and I can't imagine why they would be.
