Texas veteran who entered Senate chamber in military gear on January 6 found guilty
[www.cnn.com]

A Texas man who served in the US Air Force was convicted on Wednesday of six charges in the US Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, when prosecutors say he entered the Senate chamber dressed in military gear.

A federal judge in Washington, DC, found Larry Brock, 55, of Grapevine, Texas, guilty of several misdemeanors and the felony of obstructing an official proceeding during the Capitol riot. He faces a statutory maximum of 20 years behind bars, though federal guidelines will likely lead to a far lower sentence.

The retired lieutenant colonel chose to have his trial before a judge instead of a jury.

According to prosecutors, Brock walked around the Senate chamber for eight minutes on January 6, rifling through senators’ desks while wearing a helmet, tactical vest and carrying plastic flex-cuffs he found in the Rotunda that day.

In late December 2020, Brock wrote on social media that “I prefer insurrection at this point,” according to prosecutors, who say Brock also wrote: “Our second American Revolution begins in less than two days” on January 5, 2021.

Brock will be sentenced in February.

Retired lieutenant colonel.

Shocking. Was he closet insurrectionist all his years in active duty?

Air Force vet?

Too bad he didn't get the same deal as that other AF vet who was there.

In addition to whatever sentences he receives for his convictions, I'd like to see him get five years for each set of flex-cuffs.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

These insurrectionists are getting off way too easily.

Hang 'em all.
