Two Seattle Antifa rioters were sentenced Friday in King County Superior Court for the attempted arson of a Seattle police precinct. One of the rioters, who is the son of a former Democrat lawmaker, was also sentenced in the assault of a police officer with a metal baseball bat during race riots that rocked the city following the death of George Floyd in 2020.

Jacob Greenburg, 19, the stepson of former Democratic State Rep. Laura Ruderman, was sentenced to five years in prison for first-degree assault, first-degree attempted arson and first-degree reckless burning.

Danielle McMillan, 29, was sentenced to 12 months of community service for first-degree attempted arson.

During a protest that was declared a riot during the ongoing riots and civil unrest near the former Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in 2020, Greenburg and McMillan helped light Molotov cocktails that were then thrown into the Seattle Police Department's East Precinct.

Court documents showed that Greenburg, McMillan, and a third suspect attempted to burn down the precinct while officers were inside. McMillan lit the wick of a Molotov cocktail, then threw it at the precinct but it did not explode. Greenberg was also seen throwing a Molotov cocktail which hit the precinct.

According to court documents, Greenburg and McMillan had conspired in text messages to set fires around SPD’s East Precinct. One of the texts read, "How many Molotov cocktails you think we should have by Labor Day cuz we shouldn’t overuse our resources." The pair also discussed destroying evidence of their crime.

In texts the Greenburg and McMillan discussed recruiting others "...who are willing to do stuff like us," and Greenberg said, "I say we make SPOG," referring to the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild "a bit toasty like we did to ep tonight."

In text exchanges with other rioters, Greenburg also admitted to throwing a Molotov cocktail at the precinct.

Greenburg was also charged for hitting Seattle police officer Jose Jimenez in the head with a metal baseball bat during the riot. The assault was captured on video and quickly went viral. According to investigators Jimenez was saved by his bike helmet.

Jimenez told the court Friday, "I don't know how I'm still here."

According to court documents, Greenburg and McMillan celebrated the attack on Jimenez in texts. Greenburg texted McMillan, "Wish he didn’t have a helmet on lol." McMillan replied, "Well still a great shot though."

Greenburg also said in texts, "And can we like pls slit every spd throat," and "I want the whole damn system to just burn the **** down!!! Btw I really like fire," as well as "I AM SO PISSED AT THE COPS!!! I ******* WENT OFF ON THEM TONIGHT!"
