THOSE ARRESTED ARE TREATED LIKE TERRORISTS
One of those arrested is Q’Shaman, a man with Asberger’s who was given permission to go into the Capitol. There is no reason to keep him in jail. He did nothing wrong. There are many stories like his.
Most of these people only ‘trespassed’ and many were ushered into the building by the police.
It was NOT an insurrection.
As Roger L. Simon wrote in The Epoch Times:
“If you were to stage an insurrection on the United States government, would you (a.) simultaneously attack the power grid at multiple points, turning out the lights across the country, or (b.) dress up like a horned Star Wars character at a comic book convention and enter the Capitol building—unarmed—as if it were Halloween?
“You don’t have to be an experienced insurrectionist like the late Muammar Gaddafi—who was armed to the teeth during his, needless to say—to know the answer.
“What occurred in Washington on Jan. 6 was about as far from an insurrection as I am from being a spaceman living on Mars.
“Were those people stupid? Sure.
“Were they juvenile? Rather.
“But were they insurrectionists? You’ve got to be kidding.”
They Are Allegedly Abused in Prison
Julie Kelly of American greatness has followed the abuse of those arrested. They are held in a high-security prison, let out only 2 hours a day at 2 am in the morning. Some claim to have been abused and threatened by the guards. Democrats want them seen as terrorists.
Kelly doubts “most of those behind bars awaiting delayed trials face the most serious charges related to the Capitol breach, the double standard of justice is in clear view”.
“The same Justice Department dropping cases against Portland rioters, including those charged with assaulting federal officers, is treating January 6 defendants as hardened criminals even though most have no criminal records.”
One who is in prison, Edward Lang told his father his fellow detainees are being tortured “mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, legally, and spiritually.”
“The jail allows them to leave their cells for an hour a day [it’s now up to two hours]. Religious services are not allowed; they can’t exercise and access to personal hygiene such as showers is nearly nonexistent, according to defense lawyers and relatives I’ve spoken with. The detainees, before a single moment of their trial, has begun, suffer the same harsh treatment as convicted criminals incarcerated in the D.C. prison system—pandemic-justified conditions recently condemned by elected officials of both parties.”
The treatment is so bad that the detainees have found advocates in two unlikely allies: Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Richard Durbin (D-Ill.).
“Solitary confinement is a form of punishment that is cruel and psychologically damaging,” Warren told Politico last month. “And we’re talking about people who haven’t been convicted of anything yet.” Durbin expressed surprise at how the January 6 detainees were being held and urged progressives to “amplify their criminal justice reform calls even on behalf of Donald Trump supporters who besieged the entire legislative branch in January.”
Meanwhile, Antifa and Black Lives Matter are violent communist groups and they have actually killed people. They abuse cops and burn buildings. The Left won’t allow an investigation of these lunatics because they are their brownshirts.
