A Louisville man is learning that justice will be served if you incite violence. John Subleski led a group of rioters on January 6th to damage property and stop and threaten drivers at gunpoint. He was later arrested. Subleski, the leader of an anti-government and anti-police group, was sentenced to time-served plus three years of supervised release. Acting U.S. Attorney Michael A. Bennet said, “Individuals who incite riots and commit violent acts in violation of federal law, subjecting citizens to violence and fear, should know they will face swift investigation and prosecution.” Law and societal order are a gift, which should remind us to be grateful for U.S. attorneys like Bennet, and a judicial system dedicated to justice and rooting out criminals from our midst.
