Can you imagine the tone if the two “idealistic young lawyers” in this story had worn MAGA hats?
I’m sure those young lawyers will do just fine pleading “moment of madness’ in court.
Mr. Spoor (a prog lawyer who has the most wonderfully occoponymous name, if you speak any Dutch at all) says that young people are prone to doing stupid things (true), and that we should have some forgiveness in our hearts. Throwing a firebomb shouldn’t rate 35 years in federal prison.
But forgiveness without atonement is meaningless – and I wager a shiny new quarter that the overentitled, over-schooled, under-educated wannabe Che Guevaras in this story feel no remorse whatsoever.
Regret over being caught? Sure.
Remorse? That’s for plebes.
