'You're going to die tonight': Body-cam video shows Capitol riot suspect accused of dragging officer

Source: USA Today

Jeanine Santucci, USA TODAY 7 hrs ago

WASHINGTON — A federal judge said he was "inclined" to order that a Jan. 6 Capitol riot suspect remain in detention on Monday after prosecutors presented video footage of the man dragging a police officer down the steps of the Capitol and into a mob and physically assaulting officers.

Jack Wade Whitton, a 30-year-old CrossFit instructor from Georgia, was identified by the government as the man in new officer-worn body camera footage also kicking officers and saying, "You're going to die tonight."

Assistant U.S. Attorney Colleen Kukowski argued on behalf of the government that Whitton, who remains in custody in Georgia, should not be released pending trial because he remains a threat to the public.

Prosecutors previously disclosed text messages Whitton allegedly sent to a confidential informant in which he boasted about the assault afterward.

WASHINGTON — A fifth man is now charged in one of the most vicious attacks on DC Police Officers during the siege on the US Capitol January 6th.

Jack Wade Whitton of Georgia was arrested April 1 and charged with a number of criminal counts, including felony assault on a police officer. Four other men, Jeffrey Sabol, Peter Stager, Michael Lopatic Sr. and Clayton Mullins have also been arrested and charged in what prosecutors call a “brutal” assault on at least three DC Police officers.

According to court documents the assault on the officers, identified only as “B.M.” “A.W.” and “C.M.” last approximately 90 seconds.

Prosecutors say two of the MPD officers, “B.M.” and “A.W.,” waded into the crowd trying to save someone they heard “was being trampled.” That’s when, prosecutors allege, “Whitton began striking at B.M. with a crutch.” The court documents allege Whitton grabbed at the officer “by the head and helmet” then dragged him down the steps in a prone position, over officer “A.W.” who still trying to hold the police line.

CrossFit Is Finally Fed Up With Marjorie Taylor Greene

With every pull-up, power snatch, and hotel-room burpee, Marjorie Taylor Greene used CrossFit to build her brand, from gym owner to the House of Representatives’ most visible far-right conspiracy theorist. Before and during her political rise, CrossFit’s headquarters ignored Greene’s existence and her praise of the company’s workout programs — until now.

CrossFit for the first time disavowed Greene after BuzzFeed News asked in February about her history of calling for violence against political enemies, support for QAnon, attempts to undermine the 2020 presidential election, and amplification of other dangerous and deceptive nonsense. “CrossFit supports respectful fact-based political dialogue to address our common challenges, and we strongly oppose the loathsome and dangerous lies attributed to Ms. Greene,” Andrew Weinstein, a CrossFit spokesperson, told BuzzFeed News.

It started with Greene using her time as an affiliate gym owner to build her credibility as a small business owner. Then she asked for campaign donations and invited at least one gym member to donor events when she launched her congressional bid. Now, in Washington, she points to her time as an athlete and CrossFit affiliate owner to push her political agenda — like her viral hotel room workout in Washington, DC.

7. Yeah, I'm with you. 'Inclined' seems like a really weak verb.

If I were on the jury at this clown's trial, I would be 'inclined' to a verdict of guilty, and were I the judge, I would be 'inclined' to impose the MAXIMUM possible sentence.

5. What a sick bitch.

It’s apparent that many of these dirtbags were suppressing violent urges deep down and the “stolen election” bullshit was the catalyst for releasing them.

6. I bet there's more than a few people who'd like to give the Congress woman " a good work out".

A significant number are not males either or what that typically implies.

I keep asking myself what the hell is wrong with these people voting her, and other nutjobs just like her into office? A good 1/3 of the country have lost their mind and consider burning the country down and starting over again a great idea is all I can figure. Probably think it'll bring back Jeebus faster too for all I know.
