He deserves both charges.

That insanity might as well have been a preview of what was coming to DC.

We need to see a lot more than just this. And they better start doing it soon. Crank up the pressure on these traitors and smoke 'em all out. Get them to turn on each other. Keep it coming.

"At least two men alleged to be part of that breach have since been arrested on related charges"

They'll squeal like stuck pigs and Mike Nearman (R) is another disgraced and deranged Republican subversive. They, some of whom were carrying guns, probably didn't even have to pay him.

When I do physical risk assessments, tailgating is always the easiest vector to exploit. Until cases like this occur where people are truly held responsible, it will never change. This is a great example and will most likely be used for years to come in security awareness training.

That's nonsense. Both the Capitol Building and the White House have security cameras everywhere of which the members are already aware.

The trick will be, not to teach them, but to make them care ~ It appeared on camera that Mr. Nearman considered the risk of allowing gun-totin', wild-eyed crazy people into the building worth the reward he hoped to achieve. He just didn't care.

Before you correct me for referencing the Capitol Building (and the White House) I'm only pointing out that the GOP members in D.C. and those in Oregon are alike in their, and also Trump's warped mission, to destroy democracy everywhere in America at every opportunity - the difference here being only geography.
