J6 Political Prisoner – Young Father, and Former College Football Player Mason Courson...

• By Assistant Editor

Mason Courson went to Washington, D.C., on Jan 6, 2021, to stand and listen to his President speak, with no ill intent. Unfortunately, the 27-year-old, who was born and raised in South Florida, found himself in a situation he never imagined.

Mason excelled academically and athletically, including playing college football. He loves reading and history. Mason is proud of his Cuban roots and immigrant maternal grandparents, who were honored to become US Citizens.

Mason was held without bond by the Biden administration.  And he is unable to support his 4-year-old son, whom he had a month before he was arrested.

Mason pleaded guilty to one count of interfering with an officer.

In June, District Judge Rudolph Contreras sentenced Mason Courson to 57 months in prison, three years probation, and a $2,000 fine for the felony charge of "assaulting, resisting, or impeding a law enforcement officer with a dangerous weapon."

This is the definition of judicial abuse.  A young man with no criminal background being sent to prison for nearly five years for his actions on January 6 after lawless police opened fire with exploding gas cannisters and rubber bullets on innocent protesters outside the US Capitol.

This only happens to conservatives.  And so now Mason sits behind bars for several years.
