Prosecutor alleges USAF veteran planned to take hostages; Asks for detainment

A retired Lieutenant Colonel of the US Air Force, Larry Rendall Brock Jr, while storming the US Capitol with a mob of Donald Trump’s supporters last week intended ’to take hostages,’ and ’execute members of the US government,’ Assistant US Attorney Jay Weimer claimed in a Texas court on Thursday, asking for him to be detained. Brock was ordered to surrender any firearms and home confinement.

"Before his arrest, Brock told The New Yorker magazine that he found the zip-tie cuffs on the floor and that he had planned to give them to a police officer. "I wish I had not picked those up,” he said. There was no evidence presented that Brock had a firearm on the day of the Capitol riot." We shall see if this statement turns out to be accurate.

“He also read in court social media posts from Brock, including one posted on the day of the Capitol riot that said: “Patriots on the Capitol. Patriots storming. Men with guns need to shoot their way in.” For those who actually believe this guy actually found the restraints on the ground and planned to return them I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you. I’m sure he was only in the Capitol illegally because he was planning to clean up after the rioters left—dust, Swiffer, scrub toilets and clean urine off of the walls.

How fortunate that the United States is still a nation of laws and that that clown, Weimer, will have to provide probable cause or evidence for trying to persecute that veteran. BTW, how are the arrests of all the BLM/Antifa scumbags who took several city blocks hostage for months going?

So a journalists job is not to investigate anymore and instead just guess the intentions of people they don’t like or agree with for made up extreme scenarios. Readers are just as guilty if they just accept it.

Probably will need to prove he brought the zip ties with him to the mostly peaceful protest.

MSM is on an all out assault. At this point, even if liberals had any questions in their mind of what's going on around them, they're probably too afraid to do anything about it now.
