Capitol protesters are being tortured, beaten, racially abused, locked in solitary confinement and held in indefinite detention and yet their GOP representatives are refusing to speak out in their defense.
In contrast, Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren -- who previously condemned the Capitol protesters as domestic terrorists -- is now speaking out and condemning the "cruel and psychologically damaging" abuse they're being subjected to by being locked in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day.
Jan. 6 defendants win unlikely Dem champions as they face harsh detainmentThank you, Sen. Warren.
You've now said more to defend the rights of these poor folks than the entire GOP establishment -- including Donald Trump who has shamelessly thrown his own die-hard supporters under the bus.
Her sentiments are shared by Durbin, who also chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee and expressed surprise that all of the detained Jan. 6 defendants were being kept in so-called “restrictive housing.” [...]Politico previously reported that defendant Ryan Samsel was "severely beaten" by DC correctional officers and is now "blind in one eye" and "has a skull fracture" and a "detached retina," according to his attorney.
Another defendant, 60-year-old Richard "Bigo" Barnett, who is being held in indefinite detention for daring to put his feet up on Pelosi's desk, was reportedly "tackled to the ground" by DC corrections officers who told him they "hate all white people."
“This is not normal. It’s not normal to isolate people and make them eat on their floor,” said Marty Tankleff, a defense attorney representing two detained defendants, Edward Lang and Dominic Pezzola.Attorney General Merrick Garland's DOJ has been letting Portland Antifa/BLM rioters off easy non-stop.
Equal treatment under the law is just a relic of the "white man's English jurisprudential culture" that Biden said has to be scrapped.
Others have lodged complaints about access to needed medication or health monitoring, prompting intervention from judges. One, Jacob Chansley, won a transfer to a prison in Alexandria, Va., after the D.C. jail said it was too onerous to provide him organic food that he argued was necessary to comport with his spiritual practice.What a despicable smear!
The majority of those arrested were down and out Americans struggling to survive after seeing their livelihoods destroyed by their own government!
But as the defendants' complaints grew, so did the involvement of federal district court judges in Washington. Judge Emmet Sullivan indicated last week that he planned to meet with D.C. Department of Corrections officials to discuss the Jan. 6 detainees' conditions.Emmet Sullivan is the judge who ran Gen. Michael Flynn through the wringer.
The torture is going to continue so long as our cowardly and corrupt GOP leadership stays silent!
