    1. lets not whitewash… these arms terrorists were not naieve children “duped”.. These are radicalized dangerous terrorists

    2. Some. Not all. I think a lot of sociopaths find their way into these kinds of organizations because they know they can be themselves – cruel, malignant – and fit in.

    1. @The Hierophant Colorado, Hawaii, Washington, Utah, and Oregon have had 100% mail-in elections for years. 29 more states have allowed no-excuse mail-in absentee ballot voting for years. No one ever had a problem with it or questioned the legality or security of it until your psychopathic, conspiracy theorist, whiner-in-chief lost, because his fragile little ego just can’t take it. He is a seditionist, he’s treasonous, and he had no business ever being near the White House.

  1. The FBI was asking for help in identifying the people responsible for the riots. Well why is he not yet in custody? O I forgot he is white.

    1. Please don’t tell me you’re one of those uneducated 40 years behind times African Americans. Personally I love all people but some people just need to get over this and move on with it because this attitude is not shared by very many people except the small circle your in if any.

    2. @Dave K wow your racism is showing. Your privilege and your supremacy. How can black people get over it and move on when it is still happening today??? Yes, you are racist, and probably everyone in your circle too. I know plenty of white people who have taken the time to educate themselves. Who are empathetic and self aware. Not all white people are racist, but I’m sure you are one. No one tells Jewish people to get over the holocaust and move on….So why do black people have to move on when injustice is still going on. Doesn’t matter if you are educated or uneducated. Law abiding citizen or not…if you are black you are treated the same. Hated before you even open your mouth.

    1. Not to mention…the stupidity committing a crime and now you are everywhere on the news. You are even stupid enough to give your name while you loot and vandalize. I will be pissed if they do not arrest these people.

  2. He must to prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, just like his fellow terrorists that breeched our Nation’s Capital!

  3. Derrick Evans doesn’t need to be a member of the WV House of Delegates, he needs to be arrested just for being stupid.

  4. He wrote a message stating: “I didn’t participate in any violence”

    If he could, he would almost argue that he wasn’t even there or that it was somebody else. Dumb people, taking video of themselves committing a crime and post it online. SMH.
