It is important to emphasize that the accused have languished for months in prison before their trials even have begun. Judges are keeping defendants behind bars largely based on clips selectively produced by the government from a trove of video footage under protective seal and unavailable to defense lawyers and the public—and for the thoughtcrime of doubting the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.
The rule of law for anyone involved in the events of January 6 has been flipped on its head by the U.S. justice system; defendants are presumed guilty before proven innocent. The right to a speedy trial and the right to participate in one’s own defense are ignored, as are other constitutional protections.
Prosecutors insist the alleged crimes committed by Capitol protesters—unlike similar or more egregious crimes committed by leftist protesters last year—are exceptionally heinous because the acts resulted in an “attack on our democracy” and interrupted the official business of the U.S. Congress.

There is no ACLU. If there is another civil rights group out there they will have to step up to the plate and stand up for these defendants. Please contact your state Rep and Senator demanding constitutional protections for the defendants. Seriously,DEMAND IT. If this were you,you would want someone standing up for you,not be forgotten. PLEASE-everyone should be calling,writing emails, passing around petitions!!! We can’t let them get away with this. i know there’s times we feel overwhelmed. The powers that be are attacking on so many different fronts it’s hard to tell which one is worth the most effort. Let me put it this way; we can’t afford to sit back anymore thinking it will all work out in the end because we have a legitimate system of governance. In simple terms our Republic is not firing on all cylinders in 2021;it started seriously breaking down in 2020. The media is propaganda with big money behind it. Biden was installed as President through a coup dressed up as a legitimate election. They basically assassinated Pres Trump by banning him from communication with his base of support. Their intention was to wipe out his presence short of firing a shot. They’re trying to purge the military so the only people left there are Biden/Marxist supporters. Personally, i would hope the military would stand up and remove Biden and his administration to protect the Republic. Short of that, we are just going to have to fight with whatever tools we have on every front they throw at us. By tools i do not mean lethal weapons. So before the Biden goon squad from the FBI starts knocking on my door let me make this clear: don’t waste your time. i never advocate for violence. I do not have a criminal record. i’m probably old enough to be your mother and my husband is in very poor health. He recently underwent open heart surgery. i’m a key board warrior period. i call the people that represent us to get them to do their job. i honestly do wish the military would rise up and put a stop to this crap but that’s called free speech and i’m allowed to say what i think.
i NEVER advocate for violence or breaking the law. I do support the 2nd amendment totally; we have a right to self defense and that includes protection from a tyrannical government. Peaceful Civil disobedience is justified in certain [grave] circumstances. My rights end at your nose. PERIOD. Comprende?
I personally think breaking into the Capitol was strategically a terrible move as much as it was unlawful. The REAL power is in propaganda. However, there is no justification for the treatment of the individuals involved in the DC riot.NONE. It’s ALL political and UNCONSTITUTIONAL.BLM and Antifa would be roaming the streets by now if it had been them.
I was not in DC on Jan 6. For that matter I have never been in DC. In my own condition am, for all intents and purposes, home bound. The furthest i’ve traveled in the past 20 yr is the Cleveland Clinic for my husband. I had no contact with anyone who went to DC for the rally on Jan 6. i wish i could have been there;the fact is i have never been to a Trump rally; to my dismay. I’ve had the blessing of seeing him elected President and watched his rallies via social media. It’s better than nothing. Yes,i would have loved to have been there if i were able and no i was not there, because i couldn’t.
i happen to know our FBI has become corrupt and has weak ‘leadership’ with Wray. He’s probably corrupt and should have been fired by Trump while there was still a chance. i have the feeling Wray knows where the bodies are buried.
It’s a shame too. The FBI was one of our most respected institutions. I’m sure there’s still good ppl in there but they’ve either been silenced or corrupted themselves. How do i know this? Where are the whistleblowers? Crickets.
Message en toto;don’t waste your time here. Look to what’s going on around you.
If they succeed in taking away due process from our American citizens in this case, then due process in our country is over. We have to speak up. They’re counting on our silence. They want us to feel overwhelmed and powerless. Wrong on both counts. Feelings aren’t facts. Contact Congress. Contact people like Dan Bongino,Mark Levin,Tucker Carlson,Glenn Beck. All the people with a larger platform than we have. Be a key board warrior too,if that’s your thing. As long as we’re not silent and throw our hands up in the air they can’t win.
Demand action from your people in Congress NOW! It’s their job. It’s what we pay them for. All we’re asking for is due process and protection of their Constitutional rights as American citizens.
We can make use of our God given rights and do what each of us are able to do.
