Survey: Nearly Half of Potential DC Jurors Say Death Penalty or Life in Prison is 'Fair Punishment' for J6ers

Nearly half of potential DC jurors believe the death penalty or life in prison is a "fair punishment" for anyone who participated in "any of the events of January 6," according to a new survey.

From The Epoch Times, "Survey Reveals Extreme Bias Toward Jan. 6 Defendants Among Potential DC Jurors" (via ZeroHedge):
For fear of being judged by biased jurors, Jan. 6 defendants have been trying to have their trials moved to venues other than the District of Columbia for three years.

Government prosecutors and judges insist there is no evidence to prove that they can't get a fair trial in Washington.

There is now.

A survey (pdf) conducted by Triton Polling and Research between Jan. 1-8 and obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times reveals an extreme level of bias among potential jurors living in Washington toward anyone who participated in the protests at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Of the 422 "jury eligible residents" surveyed, 27.5 percent describe Jan. 6 protestors as "insurrectionists." Others describe them as "criminals" (13 percent), "domestic terrorists" (14.9 percent), or "traitors" (11.6 percent).

The overwhelming majority also "strongly" (75 percent) or "somewhat agree" (14.4 percent) that former President Donald Trump is to blame for what happened, and 76.6 percent "strongly agree" that Mr. Trump's supporters are racists.

Asked if they thought Jan. 6 was "an act of terrorism," 63.6 percent said they "strongly agree."

Just 8 percent said they "strongly disagree."

After informing survey participants that "the penalty for insurrection, treason, or committing an act of domestic terrorism is life imprisonment or death," 26.9 percent said they "strongly agree" and 21.1 percent said they "somewhat agree" that those penalties would "be a fair punishment for anyone who participated in any of the events of January 6."
The fact the thugs running DC won't allow J6ers to have a change of venue is a crime and makes a mockery of our justice system.

Rasmussen had a poll in 2021 that showed half of Americans agreed with the statement that J6ers are "political prisoners."

Though most of the GOP have been dragged by their base to now be supportive of J6ers, that poll was taken at a time when the GOP establishment was calling them all "evil" and demanding they "rot in prison."

The J6ers are political prisoners and evidence came out last week showing Capitol Police Special Agent David Lazarus "perjured himself on the stand during the Oath Keepers trial" to help secure their convictions.
