Hate speech cases are hard to win. So police, prosecutors use workarounds to jail white extremists

  Hate speech cases are hard to win. So police, prosecutors use workarounds to jail white extremists It's easier for law enforcement to get a conviction using traditional charges instead of federal hate crimes laws, The Marshall Project reports.But none of that factored into his 2012 sentencing after the FBI arrested him in Virginia for possession of that modified gun. A federal judge blocked prosecutors from discussing Story’s white supremacist views, because the First Amendment protects speech, no matter how offensive. Prosecutors could only focus on Story’s illegal weapon.

The heavily painted man wearing a horned fur hat who made a spectacle of himself on the dais of the US Senate during the storming of the Capitol has been identified as a QAnon supporter and fixture at far-right rallies in Arizona, according to a report. Jake Angeli, 32, was seen posing in the chair occupied moments earlier by Vice President Mike Pence at the beginning of the election certification proceedings, which were halted when the riot began. The shirtless conspiracy theorist — known as the “Q Shaman” — wore red, white and blue face paint as he brandished a spear from which hung an American flag.

A New Jersey man accused of "repeatedly assaulting multiple law enforcement officers" during the January 6 Capitol insurrection has been arrested and charged in relation to his participation in the attack, months after his internet search history suggests he was worrying about that very outcome. Quaglin is also accused of spraying a chemical irritant at officers who were trying to stop the rioters from entering the Capitol , court documents say. After the insurrection, law enforcement agents say they received a tip from an anonymous source who provided Facebook Live videos of the riot from

A North Carolina man faces four federal charges after two people who knew him spotted his image in a New York Times Magazine social media post and notified the FBI.  According to a statement of facts attached to a federal criminal complaint filed Friday, one of the tipsters believed Stephen Ethan Horn, of Wake Forest, “was inside the U.S. Capitol as a journalist, but was not aware of HORN having any media credentials.”

The New York Times Magazine post is still online, though viewers have to flip through the several images to find the one which prosecutors say shows Horn:

Police officer killed in vehicle attack on U.S. Capitol

  Police officer killed in vehicle attack on U.S. Capitol Police officer killed in vehicle attack on U.S. CapitolWASHINGTON (Reuters) -A motorist rammed a vehicle into U.S. Capitol police on Friday and brandished a knife, killing one officer and injuring another and forcing the Capitol complex to lock down in an attack that police said did not immediately appear to be terrorism-related.

Who else has been charged? A man allegedly seen in viral photos carrying a Confederate flag in the Capitol during the riots was charged on 14 January. Authorities in Delaware charged Kevin Seefried and his son Hunter with entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct. Jenny Cudd is the owner of a flower shop who once ran for mayor in Midland, Texas. According to officials, she posted a video where she said: "We did break down Nancy Pelosi' s office door". Klete Keller, a two- time Olympic gold medallist swimmer, has been charged after online sleuths spotted that he wore

Later, the FBI downloaded a two-hour-long video from Horn’s Facebook page which Horn allegedly recorded while walking through the besieged building.

“I was in DC today when the capitol was stormed,” said a post attached to the video.

The URL for Horn’s page, which is listed in federal court papers, was viewed Saturday by Law&Crime. The video referenced by federal prosecutors is still live on the page. Horn’s profile photo shows a man wearing a tricorne hat in the style of those worn during the American Revolution. Horn’s page is “following” pro-police and anti-Joe Biden pages.

That post continues (in part) as follows:

A few notes about what I witnessed:

The people inside the capitol were not, by and large, antifa. If there were antifa involved in the criminality that occurred, they only formed a small percentage.

Friday's deadly attack at the US Capitol expected to reignite the debate over security fencing erected after riot

  Friday's deadly attack at the US Capitol expected to reignite the debate over security fencing erected after riot "It sucks. Nobody wants that there. But the question is, is the environment safe enough to be able to take it down?" asked Rep. Tim RyanHours after a car rammed into two U.S. Capitol Police officers and a security barricade near the complex, lawmakers began musing about what do next about the perimeter of the Capitol, where security fencing was erected after the Jan. 6 riots that left five people dead, including an officer.

FBI Director James Comey has announced that the Bureau has discovered new emails that they believe pertinent to their previously closed investigation into fmr. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton' s private email server and her use thereof. Text of the memo from Director Comey to Congress. Voting is already underway in our country, so the American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately. So we don't know the facts, which is why we are calling on the FBI to release all the information that it has. Even Director Comey noted that this new information may not be significant, so

In a new Apple ad, a man on a city bus announces he has just shopped for divorce lawyers. Then a woman recites her credit card number through a megaphone in a park. With more tools in their arsenal, the authorities have used them in an increasing range of cases, from homicides and rapes to drugs and shoplifting, according to the records, which were reviewed by The New York Times . Upturn researchers said the records suggested that U . S . authorities had searched hundreds of thousands of phones over the past five years.

This was not a peaceful protest. I saw many instances of pushing against police officers, as well as a at least one instance where a barrage of projectiles was thrown. Once we were inside, it seemed there were at least as many in the crowd trying to actively prevent harm to police officers as there were who were trying to attack them or push them back.

I was a little surprised at the lack of property destruction I witnessed, compared to some of the left wing riots in Raleigh that happened this year. While I did see a broken mirror and other destruction in Rep. Pelosi’s office, I did not see much destruction for destruction’s sake.

I did not see the incident in which a woman was shot by capitol (now ID’d as Ashli Babbitt), I did see a man who appeared to have fallen from some height and was laying on an improvised stretcher. Someone who appeared to be examining him said he had broken both his legs. I don’t know if this was accurate, or if he ended up being one of the three others confirmed to have died in “medical emergencies” at the scene.

The apparent gaffe left many on social media wondering if Biden had suffered a memory lapse. The president was announcing the nomination of two female generals assigned to lead US military commands when he suddenly lost his train of thought. “I want to thank the former general. “He is also clearly not sure where to go when he leaves. This is not a good look,”noted author and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson. He added that Biden sounded like an elderly relative who was “slipping away.” Several others joked about how the media continues to downplay Biden’ s verbal gaffes.

The FBI is aware of this as is the NYPD (Pizza Gate) and we can only hope that the Justice Department and Attorney General of New York and various Prosecutors will step forward and reveal this evil before our planet is lost. The indoctrination of immorality in the world continues, the objective is to convince us all that we We mentioned the new attack on “fake news”. The cat is out of the bag with the Wikileaks emails and the citizen investigations of Pizzagate. You can expect the censorship and debunking of this scandal to heighten over the next few weeks and months in the name of fighting the fake news mantra.

I did not enter the capitol building as part of the protest, or for cheap thrills, but to accurately document and record a significant event which was taking place. Feel free to share, download, repost this video or any clip from it.

The video shows scenes from around the Capitol on Jan. 6.  The person holding the camera — alleged by prosecutors to be Horn — enters the capitol building among others wearing MAGA hats and carrying Donald Trump flags at approximately 15 minutes and 30 seconds into the recording.  The video suggests the windows in the door through which the videographer entered were smashed prior to his arrival in their location.

At one point in the recording, the gathered crowds watched, with apparent amazement, an MSNBC monitor showing live pictures from the exterior of the facility they had entered.

The person holding the camera exits the capitol building approximately one hour and ten minutes into the recording.

Later, another individual wearing tactical gear emblazoned with the word “PRESS” took a microphone and spoke like an activist.

Capitol Police Officer William Evans, killed in attack, will lie in honor at US Capitol

  Capitol Police Officer William Evans, killed in attack, will lie in honor at US Capitol Evans was an 18-year member of the force who served on the agency's First Responders Unit.Evans was an 18-year member of the force and served on the agency's First Responders Unit.

“Mission accomplished,” the person said at approximately one hour and thirty-one minutes into the recording.  “History has been made here today.”

He later referenced the “lying press” set up elsewhere.

Another woman praised Trump for creating the Space Force to prevent aliens from taking over the planet as part of an alleged new world order.

The video ended with the videographer — again, allegedly Horn — leaving the grounds.

The FBI said Horn’s voice can be heard on the video, that he at one point entered House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s office, and that he elsewhere said “U.S.A.!” in a “raised voice” in the recording.  Elsewhere, the FBI said Horn stated it was “worth the risk so that accurate information could come out” about what was occurring (those words are the FBI’s paraphrase, not Horn’s exact words).

Elsewhere, according to court records, Horn said he did not witness property damage but did see others prevent property damage from occurring.  He said he “followed the crowd in,” that he was “on the front lines of the assault on the capitol,” but that he was “not there when they broke through most of the barriers around the outside of the capitol.”

In an interview with the FBI, Horn, with his attorney present, “admitted he stepped over a fence on the ground that warned trespassers not to go past that point before he entered the building.”  He also admitted standing “on a monument inside the Capitol with one hand on the wall and his other hand holding a cellphone, and also confirmed wearing a helmet inside the Capitol,” federal court papers say.

Horn is charged with (1) knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; (2) disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, (3) violent entry and disorderly conduct on capitol grounds, and (4) parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building.
