The double standard of justice continues.Â
“QAnon Shaman” has been sentenced to over 3 years in jail.
He had been held in solitary confinement for months.
The DOJ acknowledges Jacob Chansley, the Q Shaman, did not violently attack anyone on January 6. Despite that, he has been held in solitary confinement for 10 months, and was just sentenced to **3 1/2** years in prison.
And the "criminal justice reform" advocates will cheer: https://t.co/Y7HC1y7T0a

A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a man who was involved in the U.S. Capitol breach to 41 months in jail.
Jacob Chansley became one of the faces of the breach after going shirtless and wearing horns and an animal skin hat into the building on Jan. 6.
Chansley was facing multiple counts and pleaded guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding.
The Arizona man faced up to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors recommended 51 months, in part because Chansley had become so well-known during and after the breach.
Chansley committed no act of violence and has no criminal record.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Kimberly Paschall admitted that Chansley did not destroy any property or assault a police officer.
Joe Bidenâ€™s Justice Department accused Chansleyâ€”who committed no violent act and has no criminal recordâ€”of being a domestic terrorist and recommended a harsh jail sentence to â€œdeterâ€ future domestic terrorists. â€œThe need to deter others especially in cases of domestic terrorism, which the breach of the Capitol certainly was,â€ assistant U.S. Attorney Kimberly Paschall wrote in the governmentâ€™s sentencing memo. Bidenâ€™s Justice Department set the sentencing range between 41 and 51 months and asked for the maximum prison time.
Paschall admitted in court that Chansely did not destroy any property or assault a police officer but claimed his conduct was â€œnot peaceful.â€ Contrary to allegations contained in the governmentâ€™s filings, Chansley walked through an open door on the east side of the building and spoke with Capitol police, who told Chansley and others that â€œweâ€™re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm.â€
Paschall called Chansleyâ€™s â€œvitriolic messagesâ€ posted on social media before January 6 â€œa call to battle.â€ Pashcall accused Chansley of leaving a â€œchillingâ€ note to Vice President Mike Pence that warned â€œjustice is coming.â€ The peaceful transfer of power, Paschall told Lamberth, is â€œwhy our government is so strong and so special.â€
