There's a reason innocent January 6 prisoners are pleading guilty

November 10, 2021 By Joel Duffie

My son asked why some of the January 6 protesters are pleading guilty to crimes they didn't commit.  That made me realize that there are probably many people out there who don't know how America's criminal justice system really works today.  If you think you're innocent until proven guilty, then you've been misinformed.  That was the old way.  

Today, in the United States of America, you're guilty until you can afford to be proven innocent.  Allow me to explain what I mean by that, and what those January 6th protesters are experiencing.

They have been arrested and charged with crimes.  Some of them are very serious crimes with very serious penalties.  Ideally, a person can afford to be bailed out of jail.  If you can't afford to be bailed out, you have a long, expensive, and bumpy road ahead of you.  (Of course, many of the January 6 prisoners were denied bail.)...........To Read More....

What Is an America that Holds Prisoners Indefinitely without Charging Them? - By E. Jeffrey LudwigNovermber 11, 2021 - The Jan. 6 defendants must be given speedy and fair trials.  The U.S. is facing a serious constitutional crisis over the handling of the cases of defendants in the Jan. 6 so-called "insurrection" in Washington, D.C. to protest the presidential election modus operandi and the results.  Those being held for many months without a trial are being denied their habeas corpus rights under the U.S. Constitution and even dating back to English law hundreds of years before our Constitution was implemented.  Not only are they being incarcerated without having had a trial, but there is some evidence that they are being mistreated or are being held 23 hours a day in solitary confinement, which is a punishment accorded only the most dangerous criminals, such as serial killers and terrorists.
