"Caught up in the excitement".

They got so excited, so stimulated, that they lost their minds. They went crazy.

When they planned the trip to Washington, were they still rational at that point in time?

A t-shirt emblazoned with, "I Was There".

Wow.

Apparently, for many of these sad sacks this disgraceful, traitorous spree was a big, big moment in their tiny, forlorn lives.

Is that considered incriminating? Or will CRG tell us he bought it as a gag?

Some Capitol riot suspects apologize as consequences sink in​

.....
Confronted with compelling video and photographic evidence in court, dozens of rioters have apologized and expressed regret as the consequences of their actions have started to sink in. The ramifications include potential job losses, financial ruin and possible time behind bars.

“This is going to have consequences for these people for the rest of their lives — and it should,” said John Flannery, a former federal prosecutor and Capitol Hill lawyer.

Another possible consequence for Colt and others captured in photographs that went viral before they even left the Capitol building: ignominy beyond their lifetimes as those images make their way into history books.

It would seem obvious, but filming and distributing evidence of your crimes is never a good idea.
Did Umbrella man take a selfie and send it to a friend? He did not.

Left wing Politico prepare theirs minions for disappointment.

The article is very long. Some Cliff's Notes:

"The cases could embarrass the Biden administration, which has portrayed the Jan. 6 siege as a dire threat to democracy."

"Americans outraged by the storming of Capitol Hill are in for a jarring reality check: Many of those who invaded the halls of Congress on Jan. 6 are likely to get little or no jail time."

"In recent days, judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys have all indicated that they expect few of these “MAGA tourists” to face harsh sentences.

There are two main reasons: Although prosecutors have loaded up their charging documents with language about the existential threat of the insurrection to the republic, the actions of many of the individual rioters often boiled down to trespassing. And judges have wrestled with how aggressively to lump those cases in with those of the more sinister suspects.

“My bet is a lot of these cases will get resolved and probably without prison time or jail time,” said Erica Hashimoto, a former federal public defender who is now a law professor at Georgetown. "One of the core values of this country is that we can protest if we disagree with our government. Of course, some protests involve criminal acts, but as long as the people who are trying to express their view do not engage in violence, misdemeanors may be more appropriate than felonies.

"The prospect of dozens of Jan. 6 rioters cutting deals for minor sentences could be hard to explain for the Biden administration, which has characterized the Capitol Hill mob as a uniquely dangerous threat.”

"That reckoning is coming sooner rather than later, lawyers say, putting prosecutors in the position of wrist-slapping many participants in the riot despite framing the crimes as part of an insurrection that presented a grave threat to American democracy."

“I think we can work out a non-trial disposition in this case,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Emory Cole told Judge Dabney Friedrich last week in the case of Kevin Loftus, who was charged with unlawful presence and disrupting official business at the Capitol, among other offenses that have become the boilerplate set lodged against anyone who walked into the building that day without authorization."

"And prosecutors are facing pressure from judges to either back up their tough talk about sedition or put a lid on it. Michael Sherwin, the former lead Jan. 6 prosecutor, found himself rebuked by other senior prosecutors and Judge Amit Mehta last week for publicly flirting with the possibility of sedition charges when none had actually been leveled."


"A standard set of four misdemeanor charges prosecutors have been filed in dozens of the Capitol cases carries a maximum possible punishment of three years in prison. But that sentence or anything close to it is virtually unheard of in misdemeanor cases, lawyers said."

Nobody goes to jail for a first or second misdemeanor,” Butler said flatly."

"One defense lawyer working on Capitol cases also said what many in the court system are referring to as “MAGA tourists” are almost certain to escape prison time."

What about somebody who has no criminal record who got jazzed up by the president, walked in, spends 15 minutes in Statuary Hall and leaves? What happens to that person? They’re not going to get a jail sentence for that,” said the defense attorney, who asked not to be named.

“There is a natural cycle to an event like this,” the lawyer added. “People will say it was the end of the world, then things will calm down, and they’ll begin looking at cases back on what people actually did.

"Nearly every day, federal judges are also prodding prosecutors to offer plea deals to defendants facing lower-level charges."

"Lower-level Capitol riot defendants scored a significant victory Friday when a federal appeals court said judges need to sort out the most serious, violent offenders from those who simply walked in amidst the chaos."

Two individuals who did not engage in any violence and who were not involved in planning or coordinating the activities — seemingly would have posed little threat,” D.C. Circuit Judge Robert Wilkins wrote."

"Within hours of the ruling, judges and defense lawyers were repeatedly citing it as clarifying who should and should not be detained, while prosecutors were trying to argue that some defendants were more dangerous than the mother-and-son team who won the favorable decision Friday."

"The appeals court ruling came amid increasing signs of judges’ impatience: at least five Jan. 6 defendants were released in recent days over prosecutors’ objections."

The judges are going to start to have had enough of this. At a certain point, they’re going to start making them do deals in these cases,” the defense attorney said."

"At last week’s hearing, a federal judge in Washington freed Alvear Gonzalez into the custody of a friend in California. U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg said he was concerned that Alvear Gonzalez had already spent as much, and perhaps more, time in jail as he was likely to get for his actions on Jan. 6."

He’s done pretty close to two months on misdemeanors,” said Boasberg, an appointee of President Barack Obama. The judge went on to say he expected plea deals in similar cases would involve “no-jail allocutions or 30-days allocutions,”

"In virtually all the non-felony cases, the charges are likely to be grouped together as trespassing under federal sentencing guidelines. While those guidelines contain a small enhancement for entering a “restricted” building or grounds, defendants with no significant criminal history are looking at the lowest possible range: zero to six months. “Zero” months means no jail at all."

"In theory, some defendants might be eligible for “pretrial diversion,” which could allow them to escape a criminal conviction altogether by completing a term of probation."

"Hashimoto said she recognizes light sentences may be unsatisfying to those outraged by the events on Jan. 6, but jailing the lower-level offenders really won’t help."


Many Capitol rioters unlikely to serve jail time

Six months in jail for misdemeanor trespassing into a restricted building, sounds mighty fine to me!

Let's do it!

As I've said for some time now. The vast majority of people on Jan 6th were let into the Capital, never committed any violence & didn't vandalize anything. They are what DC Prosecutors are now calling the "MAGA tourists", and they will either have all charges dropped, or get misdemeanor trespassing charges.

Those who broke into the chamber & ran amok are probably 25-50 total. Of those, most never committed any sort of violence, and there's no compelling evidence that any of those had plotted an "insurgency".

This has been the Biden Admin, their puppets in the DOJ & their propaganda arm the MSM, sensationalizing these charges from the beginning.

If your are let into a restricted building by someone who gained access illegally, you still are in the building illegally.
Prosecuting looting is really hard if you don't understand this.

Ummm...


The day after Chad Jones allegedly swung a flag pole at police just outside the House chamber, he told a friend he was an “idiot,” adding he knew he was “in big trouble,” according to court documents.

He was right. A week later a federal complaint charged him with, among other things, using a weapon — the flag pole — to assault an officer. The charges carry a maximum 60 years in prison.

Samuel Camargo, who had posted a video on Instagram showing him tussling with police trying to get through a door to the Capitol, was on Facebook a day later with his apology.

“I’m sorry to all the people I’ve disappointed as this is not who I am nor what I stand for,” he wrote. Camargo, too, was charged.

It didn’t necessarily help his case. A judge ordered Camargo, who was arrested in Washington on Inauguration Day, jailed until trial after concluding no release condition could ensure Camargo’s future appearance in court.

As a procession of rioters ended up before federal judges, some issuing apologies before they got to court, it was impossible to discern who was sincerely sorry and who was expressing contrition in a preemptive bid for leniency from the court.

From behind bars after his arrest in March and with a bond hearing upcoming, 18-year-old rioter Bruno Joseph Cua penned a letter to his judge, assuring the court he was regretful and had been humbled by the experience. “Lesson fully received, your Honor,” Cua wrote, according to court documents.

Two months earlier Cua posted enthusiastic notes on social media saying he’d been part of history in joining throngs rushing the Capitol, charging documents say. He added in a sentence that jurors would likely take as an admission of guilt: “Yes, we physically fought our way in.”

Among the rude awakenings: No plea deals yet, though they may be in the works. Given it was an attack on what many regard as the citadel of American democracy, the sentiment among prosecutors, judges and the public at large, at least for now, isn’t exactly lenient.

Pezzola’s judge denied his request for bond, citing a potential danger to the community and saying Pezzola’s expressions of regret now can’t outweigh evidence that he “was willing to play an important role in an act of political violence.”

To date, more than 300 Capitol Hill rioters have been charged.
Several are accused of careful planning and of coordinating the attack on Jan. 6. Most aren’t accused of committing violence or damaging property but of walking past security lines and entering restricted areas.

In most cases, there’s little dispute those charged did breach the Capitol building, having provided evidence of that themselves in selfies and videos posted online.

He’s trying to argue that police officers/security let them in and were authorized to do so. Let’s see em prove it.

The -- we were welcomed in with hugs and kisses -- seems a bit like someone who bolted during a prison riot saying, the doors were wide open when I got there....

These are not convicted felons. These were protesters. Also, we have video of the police moving the barricades & letting them in. The vast majority are guilty of nothing more than misdemeanor trespassing & will get their charges dismissed or pay a small fine.

You are at least discerning about which cops you’d like to suck off (it’s the ones who kill black guys).

For those still claiming there was an attempt to kidnap and/or assassinate lawmakers on Jan 6th, just stop it. That part of the narrative was dropped.

No 'direct evidence' of plot to kidnap or kill lawmakers in U.S. Capitol attack: Justice Department official

Feds back away from claim of assassination plot at Capitol

How about I storm your house with zipties and bear spray right after I post on social media that I want to hang you.

Nothing to see there
🤣🤣🤣🤣

You are probably right.
You celebrate this and yet you scream bloody murder over BLM. You are a two faced fool, clear as day.

I say throw the book at anyone looting or burning in BLM and anyone breaking laws in the Capitol storming. I believe in law and order, no one should get away with violence and destruction.

The percapita death rate at the Capitol storming was much higher than any BLM protest. It was orders of magnitude more violent.
