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.
