Actually most of them didn't need bail.500 arrests?I'm sorry...but I saw the raw-feed.Sure, the press reports on insane wingnut behavior and you blame the press. I guess you must be mad at Mike Lindell for pushing it then, huh?The press just likes feeding us silly stories and headlines so you leftists have something smartass to say to us.Trump was the greatest embarrassment to America - ever!
He was ignorant.
He refused to be briefed on important matters.
He bristled at every attempt to ask an intelligent question because he had no real answers only naked ego driven belligerence.
He had to have folks explain policy. He did not understand the laws of the land - or even seemed to care about them?
He was a grifter and a con and he was seriously compromised by his business entanglements in the international theatre.
He was laughed at by Statemen globally. Putin could do what he wished with him as could the Saudi Sheiks. He was in bed with China for all his and his family's many business interests.
He broke up trade agreements with allies only to make virtually no changes - or worse change - just because he could and he loved the Ego trip and the fawning adoration of sycophants who can't tell their ass from their elbows.
He fired all the decent hires and he hired all the useless yes men with no backbones but who understood the need to kiss the ring...
Joe has his faults - but no one doubts his resolve to look after American interests and the interests of its allies.
The Generals, the Bankers, the Economists, the intelligence community the Congress and the Senate are all pretty much the same Americans they have always been - only now you have someone who listens to the team and reads the briefings and not someone who is merely pursuing his own nepotistic agenda and threatening all into submission around him.
America has a President and not a wannabe Dictator.
That is called progress.
This is not politics.
It's a bunch of shit typed out by a crybaby loser who can't grow the fuck up and quit weeping about Trump.
Crybaby loser? Which one is the guy that is thinking he's going to be reinstated in August and did you vote for him?
Most, if not all of it, is BS.
That mess was a set-up.
Most of the Trump supporters that showed up were totally innocent.
It pains me to think that Wolf Blitzer and the folks at CNN were responsible for planting a story that Trump supporters were conducting some sort of "unarmed insurrection" when it was clear that nothing of a kind took place. At worst it was a few idiots acting like a bunch of dumbasses.
500 arrests so far. It was an insurrection and I'm not including the ones that only stood outside an protested.
Are you sure that all of those people they've put in solitary confinement aren't witnesses?
Why would they put them all in solitary confinement instead of putting them in a jail....meanwhile all of those people that were caught doing pretty much the same thing all last Summer where being bailed out by the VP????
Why is that, huh????
As far as solitary confinement, not sure what you're talking about, got a link I can review?

People at the Capitol, not necessarily in the Capitol, on January 6th are in restrictive housing, aka solitary.
Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Dick Durbin (IL) spoke up against the harsh treatment of people taken into custody for the Jan. 6 Capitol “riot.”
According to the Tennessee Star, the jail where some rioters /trespassers are kept, houses 1,500 inmates. They are confined to their jail cells 22 hours per day, an increase of one hour over what it was last month. They are prohibited from going outside.
Some of them are let out for recreation at 2 am due to COV.
A Washington Post report described the jail’s COVID-19 order as “mass solitary confinement.”
That got Democrats concerned because it hurts their argument for making DC a state.
SOME ONLY TRESPASSED, OTHERS ARE HELD AND HAVEN’T BEEN CHARGED
As to those being held for being present at the Capitol on Jan. 6, many are being held in pretrial detention on charges ranging from knowingly entering or remaining in restricted grounds (trespassing) without authority to conspiracy, assault, and obstruction of an official proceeding.
Some haven’t been charged with anything.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) expressed concerns about the conditions in the jail.
“D.C.’s house is not in order, and the solution is not to grant it even more authority through statehood,” Comer said on April 19.
That comment came in response to a Washington Post report which described the jail’s COVID-19 order as “mass solitary confinement.”
In arguing against D.C. statehood in an April 22 speech, Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) also cited the same Post report. In that speech, Higgins alleged that the city had been “essentially torturing inmates” for over a year, and noted: “That is ultimately a violation of the 8th Amendment…is that what we can expect from a D.C. state?”
Meanwhile, communists and anarchists who burn down buildings and ICE buildings, beat police officers, get a night in jail and have charges dismissed.
FEW ARE ADVOCATING FOR THEM
Mayor Muriel Bowser and House Oversight Chair Carolyn Maloney won’t meet to discuss it.
A lawyer for Jan. 6 defendants told Politico that lawmakers should contact him if they were concerned about the inmates’ treatment. Marty Tankleff, himself exonerated after decades in prison for a wrongful murder conviction, told Just the News no one has contacted him nearly three weeks later.
His clients include Ryan Samsel, who alleges a prison guard beat him so badly he suffered permanent eye damage, and Edward Jacob Lang, an observant Jew who claims guards disparaged him as a “false prophet” as he prayed for other inmates.
