He’s the latest of the hundreds of suspected rioters to be identified
"Washington DC-area police identified a suspect from the riot at the US Capitol after the man was thrown off a Delta flight for chanting “Trump 2020! -- [John] Lolos was a passenger and was disturbing other passengers on the airplane by continuously yelling “Trump 2020!” the court document reads. As the man waited at the gate for a new flight, an airport police officer only identified as “Officer Braddock” recognized Mr Lolos, whom he believed matched a man he saw in a video on his personal Instagram feed waving a flag among the group looting the Capitol. A Delta spokesperson told The Independent, ““Actions taken to remove unruly customers on flights are based solely on behaviour that affects the safety and security of our operation including noncompliance with instruction from flight crews.”
So they essentially targeted this guy just because he was exercising his free speech -- and basically racially profiled him and arrested him; just because he was a white guy who fit some general suspect description -- what kind of country is this where something like that can happen?? Hopefully, this guy will be released to his Mom until they can sort this all out...
