Tampa man, 20, admits intending to block Congress with Oath Keepers in new Capitol riot guilty plea

A Tampa man pleaded guilty Tuesday to joining a ďstack formationĒ of Oath Keepers members and associates who allegedly breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, becoming the latest to cooperate with prosecutors and the first among the formation to specify that he intended to hinder Congress that day using intimidation and coercion.

U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta of Washington accepted the plea after Berry acknowledged that he coordinated plans and discussed the need to bring firearms for Jan. 6 in the nationís capital with Oath Keepers members.

11. he is a cooperating witness - he got a deal......

He pleaded guilty to ONE charge. This is a pattern. Help prosecutors, plead guilty, get a deal.

Don't be shocked if the sentence is light. Those going in as not guilty will get slammed with multiple charges and full guideline times.

3. I know just where to put him!

Along with all the other Sloth Keepers, and other insurrectionists:

Somewhere on the West Coast, near the Pacific Ocean. A nice, quiet island.

Like, maybe, Alcatraz!

6. That one's too nice

Youíve seen The Dirty Dozen, right? Iím thinking of the part where the prisoners had to build their own barracks.

I see no reason why such a noble and historic structure as Alcatraz should be defiled by scum like Proud Boys, Boogaloo Boiz and Oath Keepers. (And yes, I know who used to be at Alcatraz. Those old prisoners are choir boys compared to these jerkoffs.) I figure there are lots of islands in the Pacific that were World War II airfields. One of those would be perfect. We strip them of all their communication devices, station three warships to keep people away, and use C-130s to resupply them. Itíll be like Australia with fewer lethal animals.

8. I'm thinking of a lovely tropical location.

In Cuba. Guantanamo Bay.

10. Guantanimo Bay shouldn't be in Cuba. Send them to a SuperMax as far from family as possible.

4. They tried to dictate to the US, so let's now be decisive in doling out the punishment

Let's not be a weak State. Tolerating dissent and constructive political activity is one thing, insurrection is quite another.
