Many Americans have long thought the reason why problems like sanctuary cities, open borders, homelessness, mass migration and crime often go unsolved by our elected leaders is because they are out of touch and unaffected by those problems.
There is no better example of this than the fallout for Jan. 6 demonstrators, many of whom were merely tourists entering the building to look around.
No, what happened at the Capitol Building earlier this year wasn’t an “insurrection.” It wasn’t an act of “sedition.” It wasn’t a “revolt.” It wasn’t “domestic terrorism.” It was just a protest, and the average supporters of former President Donald Trump who got swept up in the moment thanks to the trained agitators working the false flag event were never hunting for lawmakers and weren’t out to kill anyone.
And yet, that’s how they’re being treated so the Biden regime and its Department of Injustice can justify arresting as many of those people as possible and then locking them up in the famously atrocious DC Jail — for months and months at a time, without the possibility of bail (while they’re pushing policies in other cities that see far more dangerous criminals back out on the street without having to worry about posting bond).
Bottom line: When BLM and Antifa were actually rioting and those incidents were occurring far away from them, Democrats had no problems with it. In fact, they supported those riots. But when a riot hit very close to home, they got scared, then they got angry, and now they’re out for revenge.
So much for what remained of our criminal justice system.
The Washington D.C. Jail – where dozens of Capitol [demonstrators] are housed before their trials — is like ‘Guantanamo Bay’, a lawyer representing one of the protestors told DailyMail.com.
The suspects are held in solitary confinement in cells the ‘size of a walk-in closets’ for up 24 hours a day and treated like ‘domestic terrorists’ by jail guards after several law enforcement officers were injured and killed during the January 6 violence at the Capitol, lawyer Joseph McBride said.
McBride, who represents Richard ‘Bigo’ Barnett, 60, of Arkansas — the man known for putting his feet up on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk- – claimed that the guards are ‘roughing up’ the siege suspects to show solidarity with law enforcement who protected the Capitol.
First of all, while there were officers injured Jan. 6, none died on Jan. 6. Officer Brian Sicknick died a day after the protest, and likely from a preexisting condition, not from being bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher, as the lying mainstream media reported for days (obviously without verification). Two others who died killed themselves in the aftermath. But one person did die the day of the riot: Unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer whose identity we still don’t know.
“The DC Central Detention Facility has become Guantanamo Bay for American Citizens,” McBride told the outlet. “In the eyes of the Federal Government, the 2021 Trump supporter is the 2001 religious Muslim. This is demonstrated by the fact that Trump Supporters, type casted as extremists, are being illegally detained pretrial by the United States Government.”
The first suspects were rounded up and placed behind bars within a few weeks of the riot; many of them are still locked up, having been denied bail. That means they have been in jail (five months) longer than other people who have committed far worse crimes (and certainly a lot longer than most all of the BLM and Antifa rioters of last summer and fall).
McBride said brutish DC jail guards told the “1/6ers” that “the world hates them” and “they’ll be forgotten.” Guards have also told the riot suspects “they’ll spend the rest of their lives in here,” which is the kind of blatant psychological torture used by third-world (or in China’s case, first-world) dictatorships.
So much for the Eighth Amendment’s protections against cruel and unusual punishment; the Constitution obviously doesn’t apply to Trump supporters.
