A woman who torched police cars back in 2020 has just been sentenced to five years in jail for her crimes.
It’s notable when someone on the far left actually suffers legal consequences for something like this because it seems like it happens so rarely.
It looks like she got busted because it was all caught on video, according to American Lookout.
Michael Spears of KIRO7 Seattle reported about the arrest of the Tacoma woman, who was charged with of 5 counts of arson on June 11, 2020. She was 25 years old at the time.

From the Department of Justice:
According to the plea agreement, 26-year-old Margaret Aislinn Channon appears in videos from the protest in downtown Seattle wearing distinctive clothing and showing tattoos on her hands and arms. Channon is captured on video using fire and aerosol cans to light five Seattle Police Department vehicles on fire. She is also shown entering various stores and removing items of clothing.
She admits smashing the window at the Verizon Store, entering a sandwich shop, and destroying the electronic cash register. Investigators identified Channon based on her clothing, tattoos, and information from her various social media accounts.
Law enforcement executed a search warrant at Channon’s Tacoma residence and seized clothing and accessories that appear in some of the videos from the arsons.
Under the terms of the plea agreement, Channon is responsible for restitution. The amount will be determined at sentencing.
Here’s a short video report:
In a crazy twist, the judge criticized her for giving Black Lives Matter a bad name:
During the sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour told Channon that her conduct had done “tremendous damage to Black Lives Matter in Seattle.”…
“The right to protest, gather, and call out injustices is one of the dearest and most important rights we enjoy in the United States,” said U.S. Attorney Nick Brown. “Indeed, our democracy depends on both exercising and protecting these rights. But Ms. Channon’s conduct was itself an attack on democracy.”
Brown said Channon “used the cover of lawful protests to carry out dangerous and destructive acts, risking the safety of everyone around her and undermining the important messages voiced by others.”
Her parents must be so proud.
