By now, you’ve probably figured out that there are two sets of laws or justice systems in the United States today: one for rich establishment types and another for the rest of us. Take Hunter Biden’s gun charges, for instance.
While Hunter gets away nearly scot-free and can still fight the legal system, another man receives swift and undeniable punishment for the same charges.
Introducing Davonte Brown of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Like Hunter, Brown was brought in on charges of owning and possessing a firearm despite being an unlawful user of controlled substances.
According to a press release from the United States Attorney’s office of the District of Nebraska, the 24-year-old was sentenced to two years in federal prison after discovering that he had bought a gun during the same period he was also boasting of possessing and using marijuana.
Brown had posted images of himself on his social media accounts of him with the weapon. And idiotically had also posted pictures of himself using marijuana illegally.
If you didn’t know, it’s a felony to use unlawful drugs and also have a firearm. That’s why the ATF form or application for buying a gun asks about drug use and prior crimes.
A search of Brown’s home found the weapon, complete with Brown’s fingerprints.
He was immediately arrested, put on trial, and sentenced to two years in a federal prison.
Hunter, on the other hand, is still awaiting sentencing. And yes, he’s been charged almost exactly.
Like Brown, Hunter bought a gun in 2018 and lied on his background check about drug use, which is a felony. And yet, plenty of evidence supports the fact that he was, in fact, an unlawful drug user during the same time.
Hell, he even tried to throw the gun in the trash at one point to avoid his crime becoming known.
But rather than face a swift trial and sentencing like Brown, his connections as POTUS’s son have allowed him to sit above the law despite having done the same thing.
Please, tell me how that’s fair.
