Not every judge is a liberal activist pushing a leftist political agenda.
Some of them still have integrity and are more interested in upholding the law than making a political statement.
And thankfully, one of those judges happens to be in Lancaster, PA and he’s throwing the book at a bunch of rioters.
He is teaching these spoiled, clueless kids a lesson by setting their bail at $1 million each in.
This move comes on the heels of rioting over a knife-wielding man who was shot by police.
During the riots, Lancaster police grabbed a dozen people and one juvenile who were staging the riots that resulted in the police having to release tear gas on the crowd.
Twelve adults — Jamal Shariff Newman, 24, Barry Jones, 30, Frank Gaston, 43, Yoshua Dwayne Montague, 23, Matthew Modderman, 31, Talia Gessner, 18, Kathryn Patterson, 20, Taylor Enterline, 20, T-Jay Fry, 28, Dylan Davis, 28, Lee Alexander Wise, 29, and Jessica Marie Lopez, 32 — face a slew of felony and misdemeanor charges, including arson, riot, institutional vandalism and criminal conspiracy.
A 16-year-old boy was also busted on riot, disorderly conduct, possession of instruments of crime, possession of a small amount of marijuana, propulsion of missiles onto a roadway and institutional vandalism charges.
Montague, of York, Pa., faces an additional charge of illegal possession of a firearm.

Magisterial District Judge Bruce A. Roth set bail for nine of the defendants — Newman, Jones, Montague, Modderman, Gessner, Patterson, Enterline, Fry and Davis — at $1 million apiece, with court records showing all were unable to post.
They’re being held at the Lancaster County Prison.
Bail information was not available for Lopez and bail was set at $100,000 for Wise, who was also unable to post.
Police said Gaston was on probation and a detainer would be lodged against him.
Social justice advocacy group Lancaster Stands Up claimed Patterson and Enterline were working as “medics” at the Munoz protest when they were arrested.
“The absurdly high bail amounts indicate that what we’re seeing is not a measured pursuit of justice, but a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability,” the group tweeted.
This is a delightful change of pace from what we’ve been seeing in Portland, where the DA has been letting rioters off the hook.
Or even worse, in Minneapolis, where Kamala Harris and Joe Biden were pushing bail funds that were helping rioters get out on bail.
Americans are sick and tired of this leftist violence – we’re seeing cities burned to the ground, business destroyed, and innocent Americans injured and even killed.
Not to mention the police who have been ambushed and shot and killed lately.
