Trooper Rick Johnson, the spokesman for the Washington State Patrol, confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that 12 individuals had been arrested and cited for various offenses, including obstruction, disorderly conduct related to blocking a roadway and malicious mischief related to tagging of the freeway.

He said the King County Jail refused to book those individuals -- though he was unsure what reason they provided.

where is the conspiracy, they were cited


obstruction, disorderly conduct related to blocking a roadway and malicious mischief

this thinking is exactly the reason why we live in an ever increasing police state

Probably because there were only 12 of them, and the officer/s had made his/her/their point.

Just think of the reporting had this been trump supporters.


Trooper Rick Johnson, the spokesman for the Washington State Patrol, confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that 12 violent white supremecist insurrectionists had been arrested and cited for various offenses, including violently obstructing a roadway, onlookers watched in fear as the violent mob blocked progress on the street and used spraypaint and other weapons to destroy public property.

An anonymous witness on the scene recounts the horrifying experience

'Everyone was terrified for their life. They were all white men screaming angrily at the crowd destroying the road with graffiti. Nobody was allowed to leave.'

Eventually the violent rioters were arrested, though disappointingly, they've managed to escape charges, for now.

One has to question the difference in the way these violent trump supporting white supremacists were treated as opposed to the peaceful demonstrators who met violent resistance from oppressive police forces throughout last summer.

Hopefully justice will prevail and these treasonous insurrectionists will get the punishment they deserve.

There are already areas of the U.S. where the cops are not responding to calls like these, because they know the scumbag county\city judges and attorneys will let the criminals go.

You're not very consistent.

You're advocating police state in the Capitol protest.

Here you're crying about it.

Cited is not arrested. Where will they be tomorrow?

"Waiting for their day in court"?

I never once advocated for a police state because of the Capitol *Protest*

being a Police/Prison abolitionist means for everyone, not just the people you want or don't want and I remain consistent in that

Yeah it's a pretty easy pattern.

Describe situation using as much loaded languange language as possible.

If it's a negative(who am I kidding? The media's always negative) situation supported by the media, downplay the event as much as possible, describe the people involved in either positive ways or if the situation is particularly horrendous, neutral ways. Spin the situation so someone not supported by the media is somehow at fault. Play up that angle as much as possible.

If it's a situation not supported by the media, exaggerate the event as much as possible, use as many negative adjectives as possible to dehumanize the people involved in the situation, play up every single thing that happened and drive up as much fear as possible. Use the situation to target as many people not supported by the media as possible.

It's nothing new though. Writing a media press release is actually one of the hardest things i've had to write. You have to be careful as #, because whatever you put into it will be spun in one of those two above ways. They'll take every sentence out of context and push whatever conclusions they want.

They can take the tiniest most innocuous seeming thing and turn it into whatever sensational headline they want or they can take something big and important and make it like it doesn't even exist.

They have a lot of power over the minds and opinions of a lot of people. Just by a simple choice of words used to describe a situation they can essentially make people believe whatever they want about anything that happens.

Well, lets be honest: there isn't much detail into the alleged crimes. The details provided are, to me, not worth arresting people over.

Thats one of the major areas we got it all wrong in the US. You should only be arrested if the intent is you are not going to be leaving that jail any time soon, or if citations obviously are not working. Putting someone in jail, even just over night, for nonviolent crime is just insane.

So you advocate a fully lawless state?

Your posts are confusing.

Earlier you were complaining about Genocide of Native Americans and now you tell us you want to abolish law and order which could open the door for the same thing to happen again.

Can you clarify exactly what your ideal society would look like?
