Much has been said about the lack of video released for the Jan 6 event by the feds. You’ll find several videos on the page linked below. All I can say about the source is they are on the FBI’s Most Wanted page. Take it as you will.
Nor have I watched any of the videos on this page to date.
At this time I’ll state unequivocally, I am absolutely opposed to promoting, inciting or initiating violence of any sort.
That said, lemme ask you… if someone fires a weapon at a law enforcement officer, should the officer be allowed to defend himself? By what means? What if the officer was off-duty? What if the officer was retired? What if it was a private citizen rather than an officer? I’ll leave it at that.
As for the events of Jan 6, again, I refuse to excuse anybody who promoted, incited or initiated violence on that day. However I do expect those caught to be held to the same standard as any other citizen performing similar acts on any other day. The principle is called “equal protection under the law”.
