Molotov cocktail attack on NYPD: court orders defendants taken back into custody


Recommended Posts

"A pair of lawyers charged with throwing a Molotov cocktail into a New York City police vehicle amid civil unrest last weekend was back in federal custody Friday after a federal court sided with prosecutors in keeping them detained.


The ruling from the three-member Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision to release Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman to home confinement with GPS monitoring pending bail.

Mattis, 32, and Rahman, 31, are accused of firebombing an unoccupied NYPD vehicle early Saturday as clashes between police and rioters raged throughout the city following demonstrations over the death of George Floyd."
