1. 'agreeing to location monitoring,'

I hope that means something.

10. Just guessing here, but in my jurisdiction that's an ankle monitor.

They're actually useful in cases such as this one at times.

14. It was one after I read the article

Under his release conditions he agreed to wear a location monitor, to not possess any guns or weapons, and he must stay at least 1,000 feet away from the Idaho Statehouse and the James A. McClure Federal Building, a judge ruled.


Rest well. These people are being treated as the threats they actually are.

22. Well that's a great source of comfort cause as any knows anyone who is willing to risk incarceration

By breaking into the capitol will surely pay heed to an ankle braclet. Of course a member of the pry-the-gun-from -my-cold-dead-hand party will gladly surrender his weapons.

13. Apparently his left foot now has a location monitor on it.

They're not buying his lame defense.

Under his release conditions he agreed to wear a location monitor, to not possess any guns or weapons, and he must stay at least 1,000 feet away from the Idaho Statehouse and the James A. McClure Federal Building, a judge ruled.


This means he's considered a danger and one they're taking seriously.

15. Your title made me laugh.

After my chuckle, I was glad to understand more about what the conditions mean. Thanks for explaining.

18. We're all stressed.

These are some strange days we're navigating.

I'm glad you laughed! It's healing and we all need more of that right now.

In this one instance, they did a good job of upholding this insurrectionists (yeah, I know it's legally alleged, I don't care right now) rights with balancing our safety.

4. From Idaho?

He doesn‘‘t look like he has reached retirement age yet.

Who paid for his time off work? Who paid for his trip to D.C.? There are some obvious questions to be asked here, and there must be an obvious money trail to follow.

5. "He spoke to reporters expressing remose, but insisted he didn't do anything wrong."

Well, I want to believe him but until he admits wrongdoing, I can not. Maybe he is redeemable???? With the right kind of company--staying away from RW media--and a good psychologist.



....Colt appeared serious as he left jail, wearing a white shirt, black vest and a face mask.

He spoke to reporters expressing remose, but insisted he didn't do anything wrong.

'I didn't hurt anybody, didn't take anything, didn't break anything. My intention was just to go there to have my voice heard. I do love America. Like I said I apologize. I do not condone the violence that happened there. It is tragic, it breaks my heart about what that turned into,' Colt said as per KTVB.

7. I take my own words back--I seriously doubt he is redeemable...........

I also made the mistake of not reading the whole article. Looks like he has a good lawyer. Must have some money.







Colt, who bragged on social media after the rampage saying 'I'm all over the news now' (pictured above), says he didn't cause any damage and claims he told other protesters that the chamber was 'a sacred place'
Colt pictured January 6 during the riot at the Vice President's chair minutes after the chamber had been evacuated

'I didn’t hurt anybody in there, yeah I did sit in Nancy Pelosi’s seat. She shouldn’t be there, she doesn’t represent the American people,' Colt said in the clip.

Colt is represented by Boise lawyer Chuck Peterson who defended Randy Weaver, a former American Green Beret known for his role in the Ruby Ridge standoff in Idaho, and terrorism suspect Fazliddin Kurbanov, an Uzbek national who plotted attacks at US military bases.


If convicted Colt could face a combined sentence of a year and a half behind bars.

20. " go there to have my voice heard."

Excuse me, Sir, but your voice WAS heard.
We heard from 74 million of you.
However, 81 million others had their voice heard also, and their voice was louder and it was the voice that gets to decide what happens next. And this is NOT like when you were a little boy and quit playing Monopoly because you lost Park Place - there are rules that must be followed NO MATTER WHAT!
Oh, and many of those voices that live in California DID decide that yes, Nancy Pelosi DOES belong there!

17. He participated in an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow democracy and install a dictator.

He doesn't get to whine that he "didn't do anything wrong." What he did was a serious crime.

23. Colt sounds like he heard some sobering facts from his lawyer

This man is in deep trouble, as are many of the Capitol seditionists. His public statement sounds like he's been told how much trouble he's facing and that he'll probably go to jail.

He better try to put on a better public face than what we see in the picture of him defacing the Senate chamber. He'll need every bit of help he can get.

Asshole.
