“was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina”
Unlike the BLM and Antifa mobs that rioted and burned their way through American cities for much of last year, many of the people involved in the Capitol riot of January 6th are sitting in jail.
One man who is being held even claims he has been beaten by jail guards.
Capitol riot defendant alleges beating by jail guards
Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers.
For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and verbal harassment.
“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”
In an unusual direct plea to the judge, Sandlin said another Capitol riot defendant, Ryan Samsel, “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.”
Last night, Tucker Carlson did an extended monologue about this and noted that the two girls who just killed someone in a DC carjacking will probably see less jail time:
Left wing DAs and Democrats all over the country are actively letting people out of jail, supposedly because of COVID. But there will be no mercy for these folks.

Gulags are here.
Protesters are being beaten.
If you say anything, more beatings.
If you speak out, judges will say you don’t respect authority and deny bail.
Welcome to Hell. https://t.co/SEtKNSpDFY
