Emanual Jackson – the black Trump supporter who aided in the Capitol attack – has been denied bail after turning himself into police earlier this week. Meanwhile, most of the white Capitol rioters have been released home to their families. Interesting. More inside….

A black Trump supporter is about to learn a lesson in AmeriKKKan history.

20-year-old Emanual Jackson, from Capitol Heights, was captured on surveillance video attacking law enforcements with a metal bat at the entrance of the Capitol during the violent insurrection on January 6th. Five people, including a Capitol police officer, died as a result of the attack.

On Monday (January 18th), Emanual turned himself in to the Metropolitan Police Department after the images and videos of him were shared by authorities. He admitted to “taking part in the violent protest, identified himself in video and photographs shown to him by law enforcement of himself, and confessed to perpetrating the violent conduct,” according to the affidavit.

In the video, Emanual Jackson is seen repeatedly punching a Capitol police officer while trying to break into the federal building. Later, he was seen striking a group of Capitol & D.C. police officers with a metal baseball bat.

Emanual is facing a number of charges which include assault on a federal law enforcement officer with a dangerous weapon; knowingly engaging in any acts of physical violence against any person or property in any restricted building or grounds; and knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.

You can read the full statement of facts document here.

Emanuel was not given a bond.

The Washington Post reports:

Assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony Scarpelli said in D.C. federal court Friday that Emanuel Jackson, 20, of Capitol Heights, was “a spoke in the wheel” of the attack whose contribution to the insurrection “cannot be understated.” He said videos show Jackson punching a Capitol Police officer who stood guard outside the Senate wing of the building, helping the mob overrun police and stampede inside.

“The defendant’s actions were incredibly dangerous, disabled law enforcement officers and enabled scores to enter the Capitol,” Scarpelli said.

U.S. Magistrate G. Michael Harvey agreed. Consequences could have been far worse but for the “quick-thinking and heroic acts of those inside as well as I imagine a great deal of luck,” he said before ordering Jackson held before trial.

Jackson’s youth, lack of any criminal history and “severely challenged” mental health factored into his ruling, Harvey said. Defense attorney Brandi Harden added that Jackson was recently homeless, living in a transition housing program and turned himself in. Harvey agreed to request that Jackson be held at a correctional treatment facility in a program for younger offenders.

However, several of the white rioters have either been released on house arrest (a 22-year-old woman was released in her mom’s custody) or have been getting special treatment – like the one domestic terrorist who requested organic food and the judge allowed it.

On Twitter, folks sounded off on how Emanual is being treated compared to how the other domestic terrorists are getting a slap on the wrist for their involvement in the riot.

Be clear, we agree Emanual should be locked up for what he did, but so should everyone else who was participating in the attack WITH him.

Thoughts?
