January 6th Defendant Passes Away Waiting for Trial

Reuters Twitter

A defendant in the January 6th Capitol riot has passed away while awaiting trial. John Steven Anderson, 61, passed away while waiting to clear his name in court after being given medical assistance in the Capitol by Capitol Police officers and then being charged. Anderson’s attorney, Marina Medvin, said that Anderson who was a veteran of the Marine Corps and Florida Army National Guard’s 3/20th Special Forces Group was indicted on eight counts in connection to the riot. However, the circumstances around the charges made it more difficult as Anderson claimed that he never willfully entered the Capitol building on his own and instead was pushed in by unruly crowds and then later had to receive medical assistance.

The Post Millennial reports:

As the crowd moved closer to the Capitol tunnel entrance, Anderson followed  along. Some younger male members of the crowd grew more agitated, more aggressive, and started attacking the officer line guarding the Capitol. The group began pushing the Trump protestors forwards, barking orders at the peaceful Trump supporters, “like military commanders,” Anderson described to Medvin.

A man aimed chemical spray towards the officers. In between the cops and the assailant stood Anderson, who had a heart condition, allergies, and
asthma. The spray hit Anderson directly in the face, Medvin states.

The officers responded, further filling the tunnel with chemical spray gasses.
With nowhere to escape a tunnel abundant with chemical spray, Anderson went from coughing to collapsing in just minutes, Medvin narrates.

“They saved my life,” Anderson said about the officers who brought him into the Capitol to give medical assistance. Medvin said he was extremely grateful to the officers who helped him.

In charging documents filed in DC District Court, the Justice Department argues bodyworn camera footage shows Anderson wielding a police riot shield at the front of a line of rioters attempting to push through a line of law enforcement in the Capitol tunnel. During the melee in the tunnel, Anderson was exposed to chemical irritants and began suffering respiratory distress. Surveillance footage shows officers assisting Anderson in moving through the police line to receive aid.

Biteme’s Gestapo is keeping simple trespassers incommunicado and in solitary because if the TRUTH gets out, the “insurrection” story falls apart at the seams! Body count is now 2.

This case illustrates the lengths that the Democrats will go to, in order to mislead the public about what they are actually doing to disguise their true intents. The investigation of the Jan 6 event did not explore the leftist influences spurring groups to break the law, so they can blame Trump for everything.

They are Democrats in name only. They have become Bolsheviks intent on turning America into a gulag and God help any free citizen that crosses their path. If freedom loving citizens from any party don’t get some passion in their bellies and organize some real resistance to this takeover the Bolsheviks will be successful. If the enormous tax and spend laws, heaping huge burdens on the middle class, pass, America will be in a tax strangle hold for years to come. No matter what happens, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden , and the squad,all American elites, will still be rich. How about you and the middle class?It’s come down to a final decision. Call your senator or congressman and let your wishes be known.

I have been given through fraud two dimwit senators in AZ. But in AZ Sin and markey know we are ticked off and their days are numbered if sin and markey don’t veto the crap of Biden and old Nanc and Schmucky.

Lean on your reps and senators to not support the bill and then if they do stump for the opposition. Warn the dimwits of exactly what your will do to them and then do as much information sharing as you can that impacts your state. In their face with solid evidence they can read, see, research. And inform all of what the damage is currently and where it is headed. But make it a handout, don’t argue and watch where you do all of this.

Grace, I’m not American and not in your shoes, but I will tell you that you are right when saying: “If freedom loving citizens from any party don’t get some passion in their bellies and organize some real resistance to this takeover, the Bolsheviks will be successful.” They will. You have guns, so organize.
 This is what the great Russian dissident, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, lamented in the gulag camps after decent Russians failed to rise up and fight: “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, not withstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”         –      Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
Best wishes, but I see America slipping away and no one seems to be organizing. Disgusting people like Barack Obama, John Brennan, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Anthony Blinken and Joe Biden are still alive.

So, illegal criminals are flooding into country with no vaccine, no vetting & allowed to go anywhere, but peaceful protestors are punished so harshly they die in prison with no charges ever filed. Please Americans , call, email, flood Congress with your outrage. Virginians, I beg you to elect Republicans late. They can’t be any wise than what we have or could have.

These people are disgraceful and don’t belong in America! Obama, Soros, Ayers, Dorn, Holder, Rice, Jarrett, Wray, Baker, Biden, Harris, Clinton, Kerry, the DNC, it is time for the Proud, the Brave, the men of integrity to go armed and take back America from this trash that blew in from Chicago! Obama is nothing but a glorified hood rat and that’s all he will ever be!
Bill Ayers father was a communist friend of Obama’s mother, also a communist, working for Timothy Geitners father, yes another communist! This is not a Biden Presidency, this is a treasonous takeover of the Government, an unconstitutional Obama 3rd term!

I fully agree with you, Robert. People are delusional when imagining they can take back the country through nicey-nice elections. The Democrats would rig them all over again. The country is now in the position where it needs to be forcefully taken back with all those you mentioned eliminated. A few days aback I watched that useless FBI snake, Chris Wray, and wonder why Trump did not fire him.

During the melee in the tunnel, “Anderson was exposed to chemical irritants” and began suffering respiratory distress. They, apparently, forgot to say that the chemicals were sprayed on him by the Capitol Police, which makes 2 Veterans that the Capitol Police have Murdered.

President Trump was elected because people that had given up voting because of lifelong political revolving system got the chance to vote for a non establishment candidate! What most Americans don’t know is that in 2016 Obama and HRC rigged their own party’s Presidential Nomination Election stealing it from Sanders, to put HRC in the false storefront position Biden is in now, but Trump derailed that train! That is why Pelosi and the DNC, CIA, NSA, ATF, and all that Deep State trash went ballistic on Trump!
In 2020 Soros took it into his own hands to cheat Trump out of office, because Satans time on earth is short, and if Soros isn’t satan, he is the anti-Christ!

This is the dastardly, deceitful, and pernicious mendacious character of the Democrat Party’s attempt to besmirch the character of the actions of January 6. We know, as a FACT, that this is all (for a more emphatic word than nonsense cleaned up to avoid sensors) BULL SHIITE! The peaceful January 6 March was infiltrated by agitators to discredit the peaceful march, however, the Democrats as usual have turned this into a massive Hitler propaganda type of BIG LIE and continued to push it in a Machiavellian process which includes CORRUPTION OF OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM. The Democrat party with their miscreant insertion of Biden as turned into a Dictatorial Power not by following any legal or endemic government precedents, but by the perfidy of, how can they do that – BECAUSE THEY CAN! There is a quote by the author of Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand) who has to paraphrase stated when the government STOPS protecting you from those who would harm you and your nation and starts protecting your enemies and those who would destroy your nation – YOU HAVE NO NATION! America is in the midst of this debacle – if we do not act with celerity, and that does not mean waiting for the next election because as Sun Tzu says in, The Art of War, delay favors your enemy – and if you have not figured it out, the Democrat party is working 24/7 to make sure that they prevent any future election from replacing them in office – by any means, legal or not, necessary to keep them in power, in office. America faces tyranny in 1775 as I have stated and now repeat the Declaration of Independence gives us the RIGHT to abolish the entire Biden Administration – SO, what are you doing about exercising the RIGHT TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR COUNTRY FROM YOUR GOVERNMENT?
