“How It Started” Vs. “How It’s Going” After Riot At The Capitol

They posed with podiums, they posed behind Nancy Pelosi’s desk. Capitol police took selfies with rioters. They infiltrated the House Chamber, and they broadcast their antics to the whole world. Posed photos next to shattered windows went up on Facebook while some rioters eagerly detailed their crimes to anyone with a camera.

When the rioters were cleared out and Republicans began denouncing their violent, treasonous trespassing, some began to regret being so open as they trashed federal property and threatened politicians from both parties. None so far have seemed to show any remorse for their actions, but some do regret leaving such a blindingly bright trail of breadcrumbs for the FBI to find them.

And oh, how the FBI has found them.

Over 70 people have been charged in conjunction with the riot so far, with many found through the footage and photos that circulated across social media on January 6. And after Americans watched in horror on that day, wondering if there would even be any consequences for the actions of the people Ivanka Trump called “patriots” as they were smashing glass and punching police, people are pleased to see these folks who thought they were above the law be held accountable for their actions.
