Capitol Riots

Updated ET, Sat ,


It is interesting to see how different news sources from different corners of politics are reviewing the after affect scene of capitol riots. While Washington Post depicts the generosity of democrats on capital rioters the right wing media such as Daily Mail tell the story of their personal lives. 

A Florida man accused of participating in the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month was arrested Wednesday at the inauguration of President Joe Biden, the Justice Department said.

Samuel Camargo, 26, was taken into custody after law enforcement in Florida attempted to arrest him on Tuesday at his home in Broward County, Florida, but learned he was not there. Investigators found him the following day in Washington, D.C.

He faces charges of civil disorder, knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, knowingly engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct in any restricted building or grounds, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

A New Jersey gym owner and former ultimate fighter who got attention for defying the COVID lockdown was arrested for his role in the Capitol riot on Friday after several people identified him to the FBI, according to court papers.

Scott Kevin Fairlamb of Stockholm, N.J., who fought under the name “Wildman,” was charged in federal court in Washington, D.C., with assaulting a federal officer and carrying a dangerous weapon, according to documents.

The arrest affidavit described contacts from four concerned citizens who told the FBI that Fairlamb was at the Capitol that day and posted videos of himself on Facebook that he later deleted.

Federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should decline to charge some of the individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol this month — a politically loaded proposition but one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases could swamp the local courthouse.

The internal discussions are in their early stages, and no decisions have been reached about whether to forgo charging some of those who illegally entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.

Justice Department officials have promised a relentless effort to identify and arrest those who stormed the Capitol that day, but internally there is robust back-and-forth about whether charging them all is the best course of action. That debate comes at a time when officials are keenly sensitive that the credibility of the Justice Department and the FBI are at stake in such decisions, given the apparent security and intelligence failures that preceded the riot, these people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss legal deliberations.
