Ex-police chief, 5 others charged in Capitol riot conspiracy

A former California police chief and five other men have been indicted on conspiracy charges in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to court documents made public Thursday.

The men — four of whom prosecutors say identify as members of the Three Percenters antigovernment extremist movement — are accused of plotting with one another to block the certification of President Joe Biden’s victory.

Among those charged is a former La Habra police chief and founder of a far-right group called the American Phoenix Project, which was formed to protest pandemic-related restrictions and has helped pushed the lie that the election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.

In court documents, authorities describe how the group's founder, Alan Hostetter, in the weeks leading up to Jan. 6 called for violence against those who supported the results of the election. During a “Stop the Steal” rally held in Huntington Beach on Dec. 12, Hostetter warned that “Trump must be inaugurated on Jan. 20th."

10. I finished high school and entered the Navy while living in La Harbra.

At that time LHPD were fairly professional, in the 70’s it was the LA Co Sheriffs you had to beware..

11. Awww....look at them. So happy and proud....

to be plotting the violent overthrow of our government.

I hope this group gets some extra special attention from our judicial system. And Hostetter was a police chief? He and his asshat buddies formed their own little reich-wing terrorist gang. To protect and serve, right?

Send these dysfunctional pricks away for at least 15 years. They deserve nothing less.
