    Capitol riot defendant "viciously" beaten in D.C. jail

    Seems the Democrats in D.C. hate these people.


    Capitol riot defendant "viciously" beaten in D.C. jail, lawyer says

    A Capitol riot defendant was "viciously and savagely" beaten by a guard in a Washington, D.C. jail and may lose sight in one eye because of his injuries, one of his lawyers told the CBS affiliate in the city, WUSA-TV. Ryan Samsel is accused of pushing over barriers and knocking down a police officer causing her to suffer a concussion during the January 6 riot.

    Samsel has been in federal custody since his arrest in January on charges of forcibly assaulting or interfering with a federal agent, obstructing an official proceeding and obstructing an officer.
    This week, another Capitol riot defendant, Ronald Sandlin, told a federal judge during a bail hearing that Samsel was one of a number of defendants in the case who'd been subjected to violence by D.C. correctional officers.
    In an interview with WUSA, Elisabeth Pasqualini said Samsel was "viciously and savagely" beaten by a corrections officer in the D.C. Correctional Treatment Facility after the guard zip-tied Samsel's hands.

    "He has definitely suffered serious injuries, including a shattered orbital floor, a broken orbital bone, his jaw was broken, his nose was broken," Pasqualini said, adding that Samsel is currently unable to see out of his right eye and may permanently lose vision in it.


    Even before the alleged assault, Pasqualini said, her client was being held in lockdown for 23 hours a day and was having a hard time getting access to hygiene supplies and the shower. She said he's since been moved to another jail, where he remains under lockdown.
    Pasqualini said she reported the alleged assault to jail officials, who told her they were conducting an internal investigation. She also reported it to the FBI which, she said, told her it was investigating, as well.

    Pasqualini said she doesn't currently plan to file a motion asking for Samsel's release because the state of Pennsylvania has a detainer on him due to his status as a parolee on January 6.

    Records show Samsel is on parole for an assault conviction from 2016 in Pennsylvania and that there's a separate warrant for his arrest related to an alleged 2019 assault in New Jersey.


    Okay, so this might not be the most completely innocent guy, but did he deserve that? Was this "revenge" extracted against him for taking part in the riot and being a Trump supporter who dared to question the legitimacy of Biden's election?

    So this corrupt prison guard, on his own, zip tied the guy's hands together and then administered the beating?

    He's nothing more than a pure political prisoner.

    I would like to support the protester but lawyers have the credibility of Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Eric Swalwell. Perhaps medical reports would help?

    Apparently he is not an upstanding freedom fighter. Not sure what he did to get a beating but I'll bet it has to do with him thinking himself tougher then he really is.

    I think we should be careful raising aholes to hero status.

    So what the hell is this story about??

    His own lawyer isn't doing anything to get him released, supposedly to avoid extradition to other locales who also want to bring charges. So this is not about getting him released.

    It's not about sympathy. His own lawyer is bringing up enough info to tell us this guy is a bad dude.

    Nothing here helps him win in court.

    This guy was a criminal before Trump was a politician, so can't blame Trump for his criminality. Not led astray by Trump tweets.

    Is this lawyer trying to make a name for herself?

    No sympathy then?

    How many brothers have been beaten down by a gaurd because they thought themselves tougher than they actually were?

    I wonder if it was pure political difference, the gaurd likes looking up the asses of guys all day, thats why he's a gaurd and a democrat, the "insurrectionist" probably just reminded him of that.

    Although I would love to believe the beating of an innocent Trump supporter narrative.My sixth sense tells me he probably wasn’t a Trump supporter and that he probably had it coming.
