The prison guards tasked with taking care of pro-Trump patriots arrested after Jan. 6’s demonstration in and around the U.S. Capitol are instituting a racist terror regime on the patriots, their lawyers claim.
Trump supporters have been treated like murderers, rapists and thugs by a culture openly discriminatory against them for their pro-American beliefs. This is what real institutional discrimination looks like.
“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” said Ronald Sandlin, one of the defendants being charged for allegedly participating in the Capitol riot. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable.”
