( – In Atlanta, outrage amongst conservatives has broken out after two people were charged for having burned down a Wendy’s restaurant only to be fined $500 each as a punishment.

According to prosecutors, John Wesley Wade, Natalie Hanna White, and Chisom Kingston were responsible for burning down a Wendy’s in June 2020 following the protests that broke out after the shooting of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, who was Black.

On Thursday both White and Kingston were given plea deals only a few days before their trial. Both of them accepted the deals pleading guilty to first-degree arson. Following the deal, they will each complete 150 hours of community service, serve five years of probation, and be required to pay a fine of $500. Wade is the only one of the three that continues to be in custody.

Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, in a recent post on social media slammed the sentences and considered them with the heavy punishments handed out to those who were involved in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol attack. In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, she noted that those who had been involved in the attack were spending years locked up over just entering the Capitol. She added that there were also people punished who never entered the Capitol, while the two people responsible for burning down the Wendy’s were only required to pay a fine of $500.

Similarly, Georgia Representative Mike Collins (R) argued that he was sure many of the Capitol trespassers would have liked to be able to just pay $500 and then go home.
