Four White supremacists sentenced for attacking Black DJ in 2018

Source: United Press International

Four members of a White supremacist organization have been sentenced to jail on hate crime charges for assaulting a black man at a bar Lynnwood, Washington, in 2018.

The four men -- Jason DeSimas, 45; Jason Stanley, 46; Randy Smith, 42; and Daniel Dorson, 27 -- were sentenced after pleading guilty to the Dec. 8, 2018, beating of a Black man identified in court documents as T.S. who was working as a disc jockey.

1. The sentences:

"DeSimas was sentenced to 48 months' imprisonment, Stanley to 47 months and nine days, Smith to 42 months and Dorson to 28 months."

2. Thank you for that.

Justice for that poor guy. But I wonder why the USG had to prosecute them for a civil rights crime rather than Washington State on charges of assault and attempted murder?

3. They "hope victims will feel that some sense of justice has been served"

Prosecutors know the light sentences do not offer a sense of justice being adequately served.

Article doesn't say where they're serving their sentence. County Jail is not the same as Prison. Easier to break out of, easier to form alliances with employees guards etc, easier for early release.

5. So glad to see it. Between 2+ years and 4 years for each defendant.

Sad that it took 4 years to bring them to justice, but good to see it done.

6. Over four years to get to actual punishment is unacceptable. Our justice system has so many delays

that one could die before seeing any justice. Either we have too few judges or we have allowed too many loopholes for appeal after appeal after appeal, as Trump uses to delay.

Itís interesting that the prison sentences are harsher for attacking a person than most of those for attacking the US Capitol to overturn the federal government. With the exception of a top few, most of those sentences were a slap on the wrist.

7. There is money in writing clever loopholes into well-intentioned law.

That could be why so many elected officials come from the "legal" business and the trust fund recipient business.

8. My question is, why did it take so long to send these guys to prison?

They pleaded guilty in Dec 2018 but are just now being sentenced? Why were they not sent directly to jail then?
