[ Editor’s Note: The Jan 6 rioter trials continue to convict those with clear video evidence of their violence on that day. The Insurrection planners forgot to give out free full face ski masks to everybody.
And then you had the idiots wanted to broadcast what then did on social media, dumber than dirt total airheads, fortunately. We should see all those involved in violence during the event convicted, while those that went in and roamed around are getting trespassing/entering a restricted area convictions.
The militia people may all be looking at full insurrection convictions besides the few that might roll over on the others. Some may say that Trump spurred them on, which he certainly did, but he might be joining them in the joint to explain it all to them.
The country needs to create a strong deterrrent to prevent any such attempts. We are paying a huge price for the disaster, and the Republican Congressmen especially should get their full measure to send a message to that body, and to the Republicans in general.
Frankly I think the whole party needs to be put on probation with parole officers. We have a half dozed that need them right now! It’s going to be quite a June show for the tired Jan6 Committee… Jim W. Dean ]
