Proud Boy Leader Convicted

Proud Boy Leader Convicted

In the never, ever, ever, ever ending pursuit of every single person at or involved in the mostly peaceful protest in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021; we have some more convictions.  What Sixth Amendment., right?

I mean, I suppose two years could be considered to be "speedy"?  I've got a boat load of things to say about the so called 'insurrection' so click <-- there.

"Former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was convicted on seditious conspiracy charges alongside three other leaders of the right-wing group in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. 

"The verdict, delivered in a Washington, D.C., courtroom Thursday, represents the third consecutive win for the Justice Department as it brings the rarely used charge, securing guilty verdicts both for the self-proclaimed chauvinist group and the far-right Oath Keepers militia.

"Seditious conspiracy is among the most weighty charges the Justice Department has brought as a result of the attack, carrying up to 20 years in prison."

Enrique Tarrio, three other Proud Boys convicted on seditious conspiracy

For any one who has read this far, see the part of the quote above that I underlines and italicized.  Kind of a similar strategy the .gov took with the Hammonds.  Look it up.  If your eyes are real clear, you'd see the shift in how Enrique Torrio's Proud Boys were portrayed over those years.
