Circuit court blocks judge's decision to release white supremacist for being 'selectively prosecuted'

A federal appeals court panel on Thursday moved to stay a district judge’s order that cleared the release of an alleged leader of a white supremacist organization who had previously fled the U.S. to evade prosecution.

Robert Rundo, the alleged leader of the white supremacist ‘Rise Above Movement,’ was released from prison in Orange County Wednesday, before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued their temporary stay. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California confirmed Thursday night that Rundo had been taken into custody.

“Rundo was released from custody at some point yesterday evening. As you may have seen, we petitioned the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to stay the release order, which was granted this morning. Rundo was taken into custody this evening by the FBI,” read a statement from the office.

U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney had earlier dismissed charges against Rundo and a co-defendant, Robert Boman, both of whom were charged in 2018 with conspiracy to violate the Anti-Riot Act, and rioting, for their role in alleged attacks on counter-protesters at political rallies in 2017.

Cormac J. Carney

That name's showing up a lot lately. Fuck that dude.

FlowVoid,

You may recall him from 2014’s Jones v. Davis, in which he declared the death penalty in California to be unconstitutional.

BakerBagel,

Dude’s all over the place it seems

captainlezbian,

Nah, just catholic I assume

Jaderick,

I didn’t know this same idiot judge released Rundo who then fled the country lmao. It’s wild how people who have demonstrated they don’t have the capability for critical thinking can become judges.

lolcatnip,

What about the processes by which judges are selected would make you think it won’t let idiots and ideologues through?

Good. Fuck that symp "judge" straight to hell.

Aileen Canon is next.

ech,

“Next” for what? That implies there are consequences for these fucks. This judge already let Rundo go before, at which point he flew to another country. Nothing’s happened to Carney for that.
