Soon she will be known as inmate #1776666.
 
2021-01-24 11:54:29 AM  
Why not both?

She's on video inside the capital.  She's guilty.

"Neighbors told CNN that Watkins would try to recruit people when they came into the bar. "

What if those people murder dogs?

Yeah, I've heard that excuse from 3%er nuts.  "We're just good guys who plan to assist in disasters."

Except for all the anti-government rhetoric, followed by the actual participation in actual domestic terrorism, as soon as some doofus sends out an invite.
 
2021-01-24 12:38:21 PM  
Her boyfriend said she went to "help protect some Trump VIP members within the rally,"
If she was really there to protect trump VIP members the boyfriend wouldn't be bragging about it, but it does look bad.

Also, that village is located in the same county as Jim Jordan (tRumpeR) comes from.
Sedition runs deep?

We lucked out, these people are not bright.

Absolutely identical to Al Queda and ISIS.

Soon, they will offer their own schooling for free (aka madrassas).

FTA:
When the FBI arrived in Woodstock, Watkins was not there. Her boyfriend, Montana Siniff was. He told CNN disorientating flash-bangs were used.A window was broken. It remained that way days later.

Days later? Dayslater? My heart bleeds for their loss.

Montana Siniff told CNN that Jessica Watkins was not a violent person. "She can be very spirited, but she is a very good person at heart and she just really wants to try to help people."

Uh, you want to go with spirited? Really? And her actions prove that she is neither a good person nor one interested in helping people.

Her boyfriend said she went to "help protect some Trump VIP members within the rally," but he did not know whom.

Uh-huh. Sure, Sparky.

The bloodiest, most violent Mexican drug cartels are also well known to extensively help the communities they rule with an iron fist.  It's still tribalism, and 1000 rights don't excuse the wrong.
 
2021-01-24 2:27:18 PM  
Pablo Escobar gave millions to his community and even built schools and affordable housing.
 
2021-01-24 2:46:59 PM  
She can be both. Plenty or criminals had a soft spot for their neighbors, and still did some pretty awful things. She can put it all out there at the trial, and see justice done.
 
2021-01-24 2:50:04 PM  
Watkins and many others came to Washington trained in warfare, some wearing their combat gear of ballistic helmets, Army fatigues and goggles.

They were playing dress up.

Coup-play

Hamas and the Yakuza are both known for giving back to the community.

If she was black we wouldn't get a back story.
Yeah, I will just assume she is white.
She is alive

A militia is not a group that helps out during hurricanes. That's a community group. Militias are armed and at least these days, sociopathic seditionist terrorists

We'd get a black backstory if there was even just one misdemeanor for littering on their record.

Being a vet, even a helpful one, has nothing at all to do with her f*cked up crime. We need to email or tweet at every media outlet that tries to 'white'wash any of these people.

It seemed like a shame that the cops didn't arrest everybody at the some, but it's even more satisfying to imagine them in their homes and workplaces, unable to eat, sleep or concentrate because they know that sooner or later the knock at the door will come and they'll be taken away to answer hard questions posed by wholly unsympathetic people with no sense of humour.
 
2021-01-24 4:00:11 PM  
I'm from Oklahoma.  I know from tornadoes.

You know what helps after a tornado?  Chainsaws, tractors, and a Salvation Army or Mennonite relief bus bringing coffee and blankets.

You know what doesn't help?  Jessica and Clevon in military cosplay waving AR-15s.
 
2021-01-24 4:00:35 PM  
CNN has found a disproportionate number of people charged in the Capitol attack are former members of the military.

Probably just a coincidence.

I don't think it's luck that they are not bright and they are trump supporters. The lack of intelligence is a defining characteristic of those people.
 
2021-01-24 4:01:02 PM  
Sounds like all of those "State Guard" units in the south. They're supposed to be for hurricanes but really it's for a bunch of wannabe Johnny Rebs.

Source: my brother lives in SC and was invited to join the SC guard. They guy that invited him was 120% tacticool and fits the profile of every one of the idiots we've heard about arrested so far.

These people really think that the biggest worry people have in the wake of tornadoes or floods is "criminal (racist words) from (somewhat nearby urban areas) coming to loot"...
 
2021-01-24 4:02:53 PM  
To the rest of us, she's known as a insurrectionist.

This.
So does Yakuza in Japan, I hear they are great for organizing natural disaster relief efforts.

It's hardly new. Al Capone ran soup kitchens during the Depression.

There is nothing about disaster rescue that requires a "militia."  That level of transparent excuse making is about what I would expect from a not-too-bright ten year old.  "Hey!  We have someone trapped in debris!  Get an AR-15 over here stat!"

TFA agrees: "Federal prosecutors say Watkins and others used the Zello phone app, which works like a walkie-talkie, to communicate and plan the assault. "

They're itching to shoot anyone who looks at their neighbor's pile of rubble funny.

At times like this lets remember that ex-military members can be court martialed, even if they have left the military.  With military training comes extra responsibility.

Why is it that we either arm and train foreign terrorists who eventually use them against us or arm and train people in the US military who are never periodically checked to ensure they don't pull a Timothy McVeigh when they're civilians ten years later?

You need at least a 15 kiloton nuclear warhead to defeat a tornado.

I believe where I am, it's covered by the volunteer fire department.
Or my neighbor banging on my door saying one of the other neighbors need help.
