He should get more than four years in my opinion.

A Klansman caught on video firing a gun in the middle of the 2017 white nationalist “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville has been sentenced to four years in prison by a judge in Virginia.

Richard Preston was handed an eight-year sentence Tuesday, with four years suspended. He also will serve three years of supervised probation.

Preston has said he was at the white nationalist rally as a member of a militia — but he is also Imperial Wizard of a Ku Klux Klan chapter in Maryland. He is shown on the video yelling the n-word and firing a gun in the direction of a black protester who is seen wielding a blowtorch.

Preston was charged with shooting a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school. He pleaded no contest to the charges.

Preston claimed the fired the gun in to defend other people because as we know nothing keeps people safer than bullets flying through the air. 

Preston also made a big show of turning his life around when he realized that he was about to end up in jail, but the judge determined that he still needed to be punished. 

And maybe this will send a message that just because you are a white privileged POS with a gun, that does not mean you get to fire it at black people.

    Yeah, they’re always sorry when faced with jail.

    I suspect that, if the KKK guy had been an African-American, he would be spending the rest of his life in prison.

    For an offense like that, he shouldn’t JUST do 4 years, he should also be banned for life from ever legally buying any firearms,
    and agree that if he’s caught again with a gun, he does a HARD TEN YEARS.

    Hard TEN, means no chance of early release, you do 10 years to the minute

      Watch him be out in two, and he’ll come out even worse.

    “Omarosa immediately replied. “I mean, John Kelly thought the Civil War was about compromise. It wasn’t about compromise, General John Kelly, it was about slavery.”

    Omarosa went on say that she believes that Kelly fired her because “somehow he knew that she knew there was an N-word tape from Donald Trump’s Apprentice days.”

    According to the former aide, there is an email chain that will be revealed showing a discussion of the tape, with former White House Communications staffer Hope Hicks saying the “story has been contained.””

    OT-FYI
    “Prosecutors have also accused Ibn Wahhaj of leading weapons training for two teenage sons at the settlement to carry out attacks on “corrupt institutions.”
    “Prosecutors have portrayed Ibn Wahhaj, the son of a prominent New York Muslim cleric, as the leader of the group and Leveille as its spiritual leader.

    Defense lawyers have said the defendants were practising their rights to religious freedom and to own firearms and are being discriminated against for being black and Muslim.

    A Federal Bureau of Investigation agent said in court testimony on Aug. 13 that Ibn Wahhaj’s severely ill son died as his father carried out “ruqya,” a common Islamic faith healing ritual, to cast out evil spirits from him.

    Ibn Wahhaj is accused of abducting the boy from his first wife in Georgia in December.”

    Richard Preston Chris Cantwell, and those like them seem to have the same mindset as the Uber driver “Michael” in Florida that picked up the black male and during the course of his unhinged, and unsolicited, discourse on race and politics told the guy, “In America, your’e a n*99er,” and “You live in a White Man’s World.” That some Americans think these things and say these things doesn’t surprise me because i spent the first 17 years of my life being black and living under Jim Crow Laws in GA. The unvarnished truth is that for some Americans, little in America has changed since those days. Some people look at me funny when I say that whenever I go out in public, I’m always on guard because I never know when I may be attacked verbally or physically simply because of my race, a race I did not choose just as they didn’t choose theirs.
