Police and Judge in Lancaster, PA Not Putting Up with Rioters, Charge 8, Set Bail at $1 Million

Protests broke out in Lancaster, PA over the weekend after the police shot and killed Ricardo Munoz, who threatened an officer with a knife. Munoz’s sister had called the police, hoping to get him committed for mental health treatment.

A body cam video showed the encounter, complete with Munoz hold the knife. Munoz had been out of jail on bond, awaiting trial for stabbing four people last year, including a teen boy whom he stabbed in the face.

Protesters showed up outside the police station and began chanting slogans such as “Hands up, don´t shoot,” “No justice, no peace” and “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!”

Eventually, the protests turned violent, with protesters damaging police headquarters and setting a fire that disrupted a downtown intersection.

Unlike in Portland and other cities, Lancaster authorities immediately began arresting perpetrators.

Thirteen people were arrested on charges ranging from arson and rioting to institutional vandalism and illegal possession of a firearm.

For the ones that had appeared before a magistrate, bail was set at $1 million each. Clearly the judge was making a point.

    Thank God for Lancaster’s Police and the Judge who backed them with the $ 1mil bail. Hopefully, the other cities with weak
    City Council’s and Judges will change their ways and stop this nonsense of babying these rioters.

    This anarchy in our cities will stop if the police are allowed to do their jobs and the judges administer justice in keeping with the laws that have been established.

    Lancaster is not burning down because common sense & justice have had their day.

    May God bless those in Lancaster who have their heads screwed on straight.

    It’s about time.
    Protesting is our right.
    Vandalism is a crime and MUST be punished.

    In my opinion the disruptive rioters in Lancaster are getting justly treated for their folly. Our hope is that those still in school start getting taught more Civics, and History. We’re proud of the Lancaster police,and judge for applying discipline to those miscreants.

      Are you the language police. We have freedom of speech. You have no right to moderate what a person wishes to express.
