As referenced in another nearby thread, there was an excellent bit of reporting about January 6th in yesterday's Sunday New York Times.
It was on the front page, above the fold......an important story.

What it did was focus on several of the rioters who have been arrested on felony assault. It is interesting and informative. Of course, it details to some degree the brutal violence on that Capitol steps that we have all watched on the telly any number of times. For those who still say January 6th was just a normal 'tourist visit', or the demonstrators were there just taking selfies....well, the reportage of what was happening to uniformed officers belie those tropes.

Like the now classic reportage of "Day of Rage", first published in the Times around June 30th, and linked and referenced on this chatroom venue numerous times.....yesterday's story seeks to flesh out who the actors were, what were their actions, what were their motives.....and how do they feel about it now.
From my perspective, I thought the reportage humanized these perpetrators.

I don't know if there is a paywall on this story, but here is a NYT link. You may be able to get around any paywall if you try YouTube or some other news aggregators.

"90 SECONDS OF RAGE

By Dan Barry, Alan Feuer and Matthew Rosenberg
Oct. 16, 2021
The American flag became a blunt instrument in the bearded man’s hands. Wielding the flagpole like an ax, he swung once, twice, three times, to beat a police officer being dragged down the steps of a United States Capitol under siege.

Other officers also fell under mob attack, while the rest fought to keep the hordes from storming the Capitol and upending the routine transfer of power. Sprayed chemicals choked the air, projectiles flew overhead and the unbridled roars formed a battle-cry din — all as a woman lay dying beneath the jostling scrum of the Jan. 6 riot.

Amid the hand-to-hand combat, seven men from seven different states stood out. Although strangers to one another, they worked as if in concert while grappling with the phalanx of police officers barring entry to the Capitol.

The moment was a flicker in the chaotic panorama, a 90-second flash of unhinged violence overshadowed by the high drama inside, where rioters menaced in packs, legislators hid in fear and a protester was shot to death."

And then, if the informative reportage by the Times wasn't enough, now HBO is coming out ...this Wednesday, the 20th....with a documentary on the events of January 6th.

Here's some info on it:

"U.S. Capitol Riot Documentary ‘Four Hours At The Capitol’ Set At HBO For Fall Premiere


HBO has set a fall premiere for
Four Hours At The Capitol, a documentary film chronicling the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The film, which hails from HBO Documentary Films in association with the BBC, will debut Wednesday, October 20 at 9 pm ET/PT on HBO and available for streaming on HBO Max.

Through never-before-seen footage and vivid first-hand accounts, the film details how the violence quickly escalated, leaving Capitol security forces outnumbered and overwhelmed, and highlights the high-stakes standoff between police and rioters. Additionally, the film features first-hand accounts from those on the ground, along with exclusive interviews and footage, including phone videos and surveillance and body-cam footage from a day that left five people dead more than 140 police officers injured.

Obama's judges are violating the rights of the protestors----keeping them in jail, not giving them a speedy trial, put into isolation, not released on bond, and trying to destroy them no matter how weak of a case there is or how weak of a supposed crime that they committed. Seriously, putting a business owner in jail and trying to destroy her because she posted that she drank one of Pelosi's beers?

The players that the media are pushing are the worse of the worse and are more likely antifa or fbi or some other alphabet agents that were trying to instigate as they have done repeatedly before.

"...article from the least trusted name in news..."

OK, poster, we understand your sentiments; however, good poster PH, what 'trusted name' would you recommend to the members of this chatroom?

Surely, you too read/listen/watch news sources that you trust.......well, what are they? So others here can be as informed as you suggest you are.

Anything to deflect from the disaster that is the xiden regime. They'll cherry pick moments in time and try to blow things out of all proportion, looking for shiny objects to distract the public. That the MO of the propaganda media.

I'll watch the HBO documentary on HBOMax.

"It beats talking about dismal economic forecasts, secret police at school board hearings........"

Well, personally, I don't know about "it beats talking about"....but, it is worth talking about.

Those other topics are not unimportant, and I would suggest that if you are sincere, and do wish to talk about them, well then, perhaps start your own thread about each one.

In the meantime, this thread is about recent reportage from the New York Times on 7 men arrested for assault on uniformed police officers at the Capitol on January 6th; and, about an upcoming documentary (this Wednesday) from HBO on what happened at the Capitol on that day.

If January 6th is not a topic you wish to contribute your insights on, poster 'whitehall', or to participate in reasoned discussion, I would respectfully suggest that, perhaps, you'd be better off if you found another thread where you could be a value-added contributor.

I read the account as far as this: The False Flag became a blunt instrument

Here's the definition, leftists do this all the time, perhaps you'll learn something today...

"A false flag operation is an act committed with the intent of disguising the actual source of responsibility and pinning blame on another party."

False flag - Wikipedia

These cases aren't "weak" they have confessions on social media, their own e-mails, and of course mountains of video taken by the hundreds of video cameras throughout the halls of congress.

And as with any other case, offenders can be denied bail if they continue to pose a danger to the public as a likely re-offender. These people have shown little remorse, and are subject to the same continued incitement that brought them to the Capitol in the first place.

In fact, many federal judges question why DOJ is being so lax in their prosecutions. That those judges take an attack against the federal government more seriously. Questioning, based on the facts presented, why the DOJ didn't charge them with more serious offenses.

Serious contributors to this thread....for or against.....should ignore those who wish to bring up other topics.
This thread is about the reportage....in yesterday's New York Times and now HBO's documentary the day after tomorrow....on the events of January 6th.

Hopefully, adults here who wish to discuss the 2020 riots over police brutality throughout the nation, or Covid, or inflation, well, we request that they find threads or start threads where those topics can be reasonably and seriously discussed.

In the meantime, we welcome rational and thoughtful insights on the people and events of the January 6th phenomena and its threat to American democracy.

I thought "brutal mayhem" was about fire bombs and shooting and looting and arson that lasted days and even weeks. Jan 6 was a freaking walk in the park. What's the big deal? It beats talking about Biden.
This is the flaw in our legal system. It requires proof and evidence to charge people with a crime. And the capitol was filled with so many security cameras, that the amount of evidence was overwhelming

674 people have been charged in the Capitol insurrection so far.
