The Attempted Coup of the United States of America

I agree they’re mostly for political grandstanding, but I think useful information could still come out of this. For one, HOW were those people able to physically break into the Capitol? Did the Capitol police not use enough force at the beginning?

The sad thing is, now the Capitol is probably going to look like a fortress from here on out, whereas before it looked at least somewhat approachable, despite the long steps facing the mall.

Have any of the sentences been determined yet? Not just for these four but for any of them? (I assume it’s too early for these four to have been sentenced.)

HOW MANY HAVE BEEN SENTENCED

  1. According to the DOJ, about 335 people have received sentencing in relation to the January 6 attacks, and approximately 185 have been sentenced to time in prison. Florida resident Paul Hodgkins was the first person federally sentenced in relation to the attack. He received eight months in federal prison and two years of supervised release.
