Good, All rioters should be prosecuted to fullest extent of the law. No exceptions for ANY of them. The one guy Fox News wants charged. I wonder why? Fool. He won't be going home to mommy. Propably one of thoose Trump supporting white suprematists? I see Trumpsters chasing, attacking and killing cops.. wow. they’re so called republicans and conservatives. What happened to back the blue?

Doesmt fit the narrative He gets held, rightly, but why not all the other violent insurrectionists? They even let the lady who stole Pelosi’s laptop with the intention of handing it over to the Russians out. Wonder what’s different with this guy? How pathetic are you guys! Really!! It took Fox 15 days to find the one brother amidst the terrorists. And here I was thinking SNL would have run out of material.

so WokeAF ! Democrats will pay him a stipend probably and kneel down before him. That is false. He is black so it didn't happen. How long did it take you to find the 1 blackman in the riot. You continue your racism...sickening
