Human rights abuses against J6 prisoners have been well documented in the past year. Lawyers representing January 6th defendants have went so far as to describe conditions in the prisons as similar to Guantanamo Bay. This week, a January 6th political prisoner penned a heart wrenching open letter describing conditions in the prisons, denial of basic due process rights guaranteed under the Constitution, and demanding all charges against him are dropped. The Gateway Pundit Reports–
“Pete Schwartz, a January 6 detainee, wrote a 23-page open letter and motion to the court on November 8 to drop all charges, release him, and rectify all the false accusations mentioned.”
Schwartz was arrested on February 2nd in Pennsylvania where 30 agents descended on him with armored vehicles, attacking him with flashbang grenades and aiming assault rifles at his chest.
“At no point did either my wife or I resist but we were both roughly handled and forced/dragged up the stairs after being shackled and handcuffed as we were shoved around,” Schwartz said.
Schwartz detailed extensive human rights violations by prosecutors, including giving him no bond, poor access to discovery/evidence against him in the case, speedy trial violations, no indictment/arraginment, and more.
In his concluding statement, Schwartz said, “the only threat to the country or to the fabric of American democracy is you, Judge Mehta, as you willfully ignore the Bill of Rights, along with the other traitors and enemies of this country.”
January 6th protesters have faced extensive human rights violations at the hands of the Biden Justice Department. Richard Barnett, a protester at the January 6th rally, was allegedly beaten by prison guards and denied medical treatment when he thought he was having a heart attack, according to his lawyer. “They are treating those people worse than they treat the terrorists at Gitmo (short for Guantanamo),” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) claimed at a Cobb County Republican Party breakfast.
In October of this year, a federal judge openly questioned if J6 protesters are being treated fairly and consistently, considering the relatively light charges that BLM rioters faced last summer.
