The Close-Knit Community of those arrested for Jan 6

I recently saw a video of Trump supporters outside the DC jail showing solidarity with those inside who were arrested for their involvement in that “big thing” that happened at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

I’m calling it that because what one calls it almost always indicates their opinion on the matter and I am attempting to remain neutral.

Regardless of political opinion, it is important to take note of how some of those arrested for their actions on January 6 are being held together.

Their situation has recently become and will likely continue to be a focal point for the Trump campaign in the future.

So let’s break it down.



The ongoing case of the individuals arrested for their involvement in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has taken a new turn.

Many of those arrested are being held together in prison, with reports suggesting that they have formed a close-knit community behind bars.

Some of those incarcerated have even published videos of themselves together in jail.

Supporters of former President Donald Trump have been vocal in their belief that those arrested in connection with the Capitol riot are political prisoners, claiming that they are being unfairly targeted and punished.

Regardless of one’s opinion on those incarcerated, it remains to be seen what the future holds for those involved in this historic event.

In the meantime, the issue of how those incarcerated are being treated and housed will continue to be closely watched by both supporters and opponents of the former President.
