Speakers at the rally insisted that hundreds of rioters arrested for their actions on 6 January were "political prisoners" who had committed no violence.About 600 people have been charged in the federal investigation into the Capitol riot, where a pro-Trump mob tried to stop the US Congress from certifying the 2020 election result.
At least 185 are accused of assaulting, resisting, or impeding police officers or employees. More than 70 were charged with destroying or stealing government property.Most of those charged have been released ahead of their trials. The Associated Press news agency reports that about 63 are still in custody, citing court and jail records. headtopics.com
In July, officers who defended the Capitol during the riot told a Congressional committee they had been beaten and suffered racial abuse. One testified that he was knocked unconscious and suffered a heart attack. Another, an Iraq War veteran, compared the scene to a "medieval battlefield".

Why do they keep on wearing dead animals!? Good it’s a disgrace Ok So……. There is no issue with far right protesters as previously reported. Best turning your attention to far left protesters destroying their own towns. It's already been leaked in the US that this was a fake 'right wing' protest actually organised by the left. I wish the BBC and its readers could do some research, aka due diligence, before reporting/commenting on a non-event.
If you don't want to see this, Stop stealing election! fed rally shit journalism Good. The minority remains the minority. Better to have and not need than to need and not have. Higher ups made sure it evolved in the opposite way on January 6th and those persons deserve some serious prison time. He obviously didn’t check himself in the mirror before he left.
FBI is right-wing? You'll need to fact check thay
Protesters are outnumbered by police and press at Justice for J6 rallyA sparsely attended 'Justice for J6' rally featured more police officers and press than protesters as a few hundred demonstrators gathered in the shadow of the Capitol building. Nothing compared to BorderCrisis
Live pic of the crowds So that's the end of that then. Oof 😂😂😂 Greater disappointment for the media, ever hungry for lurid coverage, than for the demonstrators The point is, their main Aryin mission was outside of DC. It's divide and conquer. No matter what we think, we should be Klan and Panther together. The crime family upstairs just woke up on a buzzer, as I am using the phone the little boy cloned. Hassan the Aryon Servant!
Their combined teeth and IQ number was almost higher than the turnout. I think the Klan distributed their attack, slickly, the Elite (Aryans had a crazy wombyn attack the revolutionerry family), six cops showed up in the pool to assassinate us, the crime family they placed in they other unit above me, fled the scene like a gang. They waited.
I’m not sure if I should be happy or not cuz both are kinda trash Where paying them.

'Lost Boy Scout found in D.C..' People knew ahead of time that it was another planned false flag.
Police hunt for missing Gabby Peitio and Brian LaundrieA Grand Teton Park Ranger said there is a group of park rangers that is searching for Gabby Petito in the park. Florida officers and FBI agents are looking for Laundrie at a wildlife reserve. Who tipped them to the wildlife preserve? The parents? another wild goose chase so he has 3 more days to get further away. If he’s innocent he should talk🙁 He’s not ‘missing’. He’s on the run.
