Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was sentenced to 22 years in prison on Tuesday for his role in the supposed "seditious conspiracy" of Jan 6, even though he never entered the Capitol and wasn't even in Washington, DC on the day of the protest.
The sentence was handed down by wildly disappointing Trump-appointed judge Tim Kelly.
The Proud Boys brought no guns to DC for their "seditious conspiracy" to overthrow the government but did shake (and possibly topple) a fence outside the Capitol building. One of their recruits, Dominic Pezzola, also broke a window to the Capitol building (though he "only" got sentenced to 10 years in prison in comparison).
From the AP, "Proud Boys' Enrique Tarrio gets record 22 years in prison for Jan. 6 seditious conspiracy":
[Enrique] Tarrio, 39, pleaded for leniency before the judge imposed the prison term topping the 18-year sentences given to Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and one-time Proud Boys leader Ethan Nordean for seditious conspiracy and other convictions stemming from the Jan. 6, 2021, riot.Tarrio was a "prolific informant" who worked with the feds in the past but evidently it didn't get him any favors. I speculated in the past he may still be working for them due to his bizarre behavior (he brought two empty gun magazines to DC before J6 and got arrested for seemingly no reason) but I'd say it's clear now that's not the case.
Many Proud Boys, including Joe Biggs, spoke about how they "informed" on antifa to the FBI but clearly it was the FBI who was playing them. By working with the FBI in any capacity whatsoever, they were only "informing" on themselves.
Regardless of their foolish actions, the fact remains that the way the feds went easy on BLM/Antifa rioters while throwing the book at J6ers violates the Equal Protection Clause and all their convictions should be overturned.
