The mob’s violent effort aimed to block Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s election as president. Since returning home, many have confronted harsh criticism from angry constituents or employers - often because of their own posts on social media
@Reuters Anyone participating inside the Capitol or the violence outside should be instantly terminated. If they were at the rally and there was no evidence of these activities then they do have first amendment protection. No matter how much I can’t stand them
@Reuters I’ve seen reports that some current and former law enforcement flashed their credentials to prove they were “allowed” to carry guns. I would think that pushes it into “official capacity” area. If you’re outside your jurisdiction and using your job to riot, you should be fired!
@Reuters What happened to Freedom of Speech, are they dismissing employees who rioted last year from their posts about the Government?
@Reuters Identify and charge them, should not be difficult!
At least 50 elected officials and others in public sector jobs are facing internal inquiries or investigations that, in some cases, have resulted in temporary suspensions pending investigations, based on @Reuters examination of public statements, news reports and video footage
At least two Capitol police officers have been suspended and more than a dozen others are under investigation for alleged dereliction of duty or aiding or abetting rioters by @LindaSoReports @andreajanuta and @MJBerens1
