Infowars host Owen Shroyer, who did not enter the Capitol building on Jan 6, was sentenced to 60 days in prison on Tuesday for allegedly "amping up" the crowd with a bullhorn while delivering a patriotic speech.
From Politico, "Owen Shroyer, InfoWars host and colleague of Alex Jones, gets 60 days for Jan. 6 misdemeanor":
A judge on Tuesday sentenced InfoWars broadcaster Owen Shroyer — who shadowed his boss and ally Alex Jones onto Capitol grounds on Jan. 6, 2021 — to 60 days in prison for breaching the restricted area.Police have no obligation to protect the public by stopping a crime that's happening right in front of them but Owen was obligated to "deescalate" an overwhelmingly peaceful crowd on J6 lest they enter "The People's House" and walk around for a few minutes before leaving.
Judge Kelly is truly a disgrace.
GOP presidential contender Vivek Ramaswamy spoke out in Shroyer's defense on Wednesday and said he will pardon him and "all non-violent Jan 6 protesters and political prisoners" on "Day 1" if he wins the presidency.
"Yesterday a man by the name of Owen Shroyer was sentenced to prison for *speech*, not violence, on Jan 6 – for marching around the Capitol, using a bull horn, & shouting things like '1776!'" Ramaswamy said.
"No violence. Didn't enter the Capitol. That's it. I don't know the guy & I have no idea if he's 'a good person' or not, but that's not what our justice system is supposed to determine," he continued. "There is no greater threat to the First Amendment than the use of police power to silence political dissent. On Day 1, I will pardon all non-violent Jan 6 protesters & political prisoners. The DOJ used 'evidence' provided by the FBI to pursue this man and countless others."
