Profiles in Insurrection

Garret Miller is one of the insurrectionists who stormed the US Capitol building on January 6. Like many in the mob, he thoroughly documented his actions on social media. This included a selfie of himself after breaking in, along with a comment “Just wanted to incriminate myself a little lol.” He also bragged that he brought a gun with him.

Later, after Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted “Impeach”, Miller tweeted back at her “Assassinate AOC”.

On Jan. 10, he posted about the Capitol police officer who shot and killed a woman rioter inside the Capitol, “He will swing. I had a rope in my bag on that day.” He also called the officer, who he thought was Black, a “prize to be taken.”

When Miller was arrested at his home in Dallas, he happened to be wearing a T-shirt that had a photo of Donald Trump, along with the words “Take America Back” and “I Was There, Washington D.C., January 6, 2021.” Seriously.

But there’s more. His lawyer is asking for the release of Miller, saying he has expressed regret for his actions. But immediately after his arrest, on a recorded call to his mother, he had said “I don’t feel that I’ve done anything wrong.”

Multiple instances of him incriminating himself. No regret. Continues to threaten violence and to make it clear that he is a danger to others. Racist and delusional. In Texas, do they still throw people in jail and throw away the key?

    The Sixth of January
    The treason, sedition, and plot.
    I know of no reason
    Sedition and treason
    Should ever be forgot.

    Pretty good, both you guys. And sadly Jeff you may be right.
    Someone who so blatantly incriminates himself is an idiot and certainty deserves to spend some time for his crime-

    There is Hope. His is a Federal Crime so Texas has nothing to do with it.
