Sentence of 87 months for Bunkerville protester is excessive

I watched a criminal investigation TV program recently in which a man was guilty of rape and murder of a young woman. He got 17 years in prison.

Gregory Burleson, who was one of the protesters at the Bunkerville standoff, was sentenced to 68 years in prison for being a demonstrator and exercising his First Amendment rights (“First prison term imposed in Bunkerville standoff case,” Thursday Review-Journal). He hurt no one.

That’s called “equal justice under the law.”
