Two Brooklyn Lawyers Charged in Molotov Cocktail Attack on NYPD Cruiser

NY Daily News

Colinford Mattis, 32, a corporate lawyer and member of Community Board 5 in East New York, was charged along with fellow attorney Urooj Rahman with the attempted attack on an empty police cruiser parked outside the 88th Precinct station house in Fort Greene.
……de Blasio Sunday blamed outside “anarchist” for the violence that erupted in New York over the weekend. But Mattis is a corporate lawyer with Times Square law firm Pryor Cashman.
……Authorities say Rahman, 31, tossed a bottle filled with gasoline through a broken window into the cruiser just before 1 am Saturday but the Molotov cocktail failed to ignite. Rahman jumped into a van driven by Mattis and they sped off, court papers allege.
The attempted torching was captured by video surveillance cameras outside the precinct stationhouse on DeKalb Ave., according to court papers.
Cops gave chase and stopped the van nearby on Willoughby St. They found the makings of another Molotov cocktail in the back seat along with a gasoline container, authorities say.
……Mattis, who lives in East New York, graduated from Princeton University and New York University law school, according to his LinkedIn page.
He is an associate with Pryor Cashman, where he specializes in start-ups. He was furloughed from the firm in April, said Ronald Shechtman, a managing partner at the firm.
Rahman’s Facebook page showed her celebrating her graduation from Fordham but a neighbor said she struggled with financial problems after losing her job.
“She’s in trouble. That’s bad. I’m sorry to hear that,” Raleigh, the super, said after learning of her arrest. “But if you want to play, you’re gonna pay.”

Both of the turds face federal charges.

 

Both of these educated radical nimrods just earned their way into prison.
