Law enforcement officials expecting dozens of charges against US Capitol rioters

Law enforcement officials expecting dozens of charges against US Capitol rioters

From CNN's Evan Perez

Following Wednesday’s embarrassing federal response to Pro-Trump rioters ransacking of the Capitol, the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies are planning a push to make arrests and bring charges against those who led the insurrection, federal law enforcement officials said.

Dozens of charges are expected in Washington DC’s local and federal courts, including as many as 15 federal cases against people who are believed to be involved in the more serious alleged crimes, the officials said Thursday.

FBI digital experts spent the night ingesting surveillance video from the Capitol buildings and the area around the complex and are using software to match images and faces with social media posts showing some of the mayhem. In some cases, people involved in storming the Capitol made social media postings ahead of the rally making clear what their plans were, which federal prosecutors can use to help bring charges.

Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and other federal officials are coordinating the response but are also facing questions about why law enforcement appeared unprepared for the onslaught that in many ways had already been telegraphed by President Trump and his supporters on social media.

1. You know the reason, drumpf ordered the police to stand back and not hurt his people.

They are terrorist criminals, just like him and were actually doing as ordered.

2. Good


The jackals propping up in Pelosi's office need to be the first to go. Do it quick, do it swift. Hope your insurrection done at the behest of a melomaniac was worth it, because you boys are going away for a long time.

7. Dozens of charges -- EACH!!!

Each one of those asshats needs to be facing at least 10 charges including 4 counts of murder while engaging in a felony.

In Commonwealth v. Almeida the accused and two confederates
committed an armed robbery. In attempting to escape, one or more
of the felons fired several shots at policemen, who returned the fire.
One policeman was shot and killed. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court
held that Almeida could be convicted of murder in the first degree even
if the lethal shot came from a policeman's gun. In Commonwealth v.
Wilson, Judge Curtis Bok, following Almeida, told the jury that
if they found that Wilson and his confederate were engaged upon a
robbery when they were interrupted by the police, and if, in the ensuing
chase, a policeman accidentally or intentionally shot Wilson's confederate, they should convict Wilson of murder in the first degree.
Finally, in Commonwealth v. Thomas, the Pennsylvania Supreme
Court, on facts agreed upon demurrer, held that Thomas could be
convicted of murder in the first degree of his co-felon, Jackson, if
Jackson met his death from a bullet fired by the shopkeeper whom
they had robbed.
der . . . which shall be committed in the perpetration of . .-.
robbery . . shall be deemed murder in the first dergee." ' In
Pennsylvania, as in most jurisdictions, the term "murder" is not
statutorily defined and it is to the common law that one must look
for its definition.'
