“They were identified as Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman and the punishment comes from New York’s Appellate Division, First Department, according to Reuters.”
“Rahman was on video throwing a Molotov cocktail into a New York Police Department vehicle in Brooklyn and was arrested later and charged.
“‘The pair set the vehicle on fire in front of other police officers and then drove away in Mattis’ van. They were quickly apprehended and found to have another homemade incendiary device, as well as the ingredients to make more. Prosecutors alleged Rahman also offered Molotov cocktails to others at the protest,’ the report said.
“Sentencing for their crimes is pending, and prosecutors have asked for prison terms of up to 24 months for each.”
