They were still arresting people after 5 years that participated in the Vancouver Stanley Cup riot of 2011.
My ex brother in law got swooped up by the FBI. Can confirm it’s going on.
From the article: “The FBI has made an average of more than four arrests a day, seven days a week since January 6th.” Pretty impressive.
A friend of mine had a FBI agent flash him a badge and question him for a few minutes when he went to get some tacos for lunch. He’s into war journalism and did some filming of the insurrection. He had also been planning a trip over seas to do some international journalism. So, he got picked up as being there and also planning on taking a trip to a very anti American country.
He found the whole thing much less funny than I did when he explained it later.
He should talk to a lawyer because they can certainly cause him international travel problems and he cannot trust that they won't lie to him if they told him they agree he is innocent or did nothing wrong.
What about those in government that encouraged the riots?
Aw, shucks, just a little locker room incitement to insurrection, right?
The fact that all these people were able to just WALK AWAY afterwards is one of the most insane parts of the whole situation to me
Haha awesome can you imagine how the ones that haven’t been caught yet are feeling? Must be very stressful :)
Stressful? Shouldn’t they be excited they’ll get that F150 soon!?
Oh man, has anyone watched the new HBO doc Qanon Into The Storm? It's really good in my opinion.
I thought it was ok. Unfortunately IMO it focused too much on trying to uncover who Q is, not why so many have fallen prey to it. I didn't walk away feeling like I understood their mindset or what to do about it. That's probably asking too much, but it's what I hoped for.
I know a guy that set his profile picture to the guy with the horns and he had to show proof he was not there. They brought him in for questioning last month
I think it was probably less about him proving he wasn't there...I mean flights and hotel bookings to places that would be a reasonable driving distance to the Capitol are such low hanging fruit to figure that out. Seems more likely that they were interested to know if he knew people and if he had other online activities in connect to those people. TBH, I don't think the FBI gives you a visit for just changing a profile photo.
But... but the treason is coming from... *inside* The House...
These weren't rioters, they were insurrectionists. Huge difference
I met one of these tools once. Eduardo "Doobie smoker" as the media dubbed him. Dude would brag about drunk driving. Divorced his wife and abandoned his daughter. Went to the riots and smoked weed in the Capitol building. Fuck that guy.
As many of us foresaw, people who entered “after others cleared the way” are being treated as mere miscreants. Instead of treating the assaulters and conspirators harshly, while treating the others lightly, we should treat the assaulters and conspirators *extremely harshly*, and the rest of them merely harshly.
These people tried to overthrow the United States government by force.
Someone is ignoring the beerhall putsch, and what happened when the perpetrators were handled with kid gloves.
there were lots and lots of total fucking morons that day, gotta catch em all!
When are they going after the REAL people responsible for the terrorist attack: Trump, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Roger Stone, Rudy Giuliani, any politician/news pundit that helped spread the bullshit lie that Trump won, etc.
Oh right, never.
“Criminals who committed crimes are still being arrested”
You should probably go ahead and turn yourselves in. They will find you.
I mean if I robbed a store four months ago, you think the cops would just give me a pass? Give me a break.
Well, I guess not ALL of them were stupid enough to post it on social media.
Four months feels like a very long time ago. Four months though? Damn.
Good, track all those ignorant A holes down.
