61-year-old former US Marine John Anderson has died, while awaiting trial for crimes his was “wrongfully accused” of, according to his lawyer who explains that Anderson became trapped inside a tunnel leading into the Capitol, while people pressed him from behind.
Epoch Times reports – John Anderson, 61, died at a hospital on Sept. 21 in Jacksonville, Florida, according to family members and his lawyer. His cause of death has not been disclosed.
“My sweet, handsome husband went home to be with the Lord,” Anderson’s wife said, according to his lawyer, Marina Medvin.
Anderson’s wife is asking for prayers and privacy as she mourns the loss.
Anderson, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, was charged with seven counts, including civil disorder, interfering with law enforcement, and stealing government property.
Anderson was arrested in late February in St. Augustine and released pending trial about a week later.
Authorities said he was part of the crowd that tried entering the Capitol through a tunnel, clashing with officers in the process. But his lawyers said he did nothing wrong and was trapped by people pressing behind him.
A widely circulated video shows the desperation of people who became trapped in the tunnel leading into the Capitol as others pressed up against them. One question that isn’t being answered is who was pressing up against these people, causing them to be either be unwillingly forced inside the Capitol or to be crushed those around them? Who was behind the pushing?
The stunning video reveals Trump supporters and law enforcement officers attempting to escape the crush of people pressing against them in the tunnel where the now deceased former US Marine John Anderson was trapped. At the 9:56 mark, a woman can be heard screaming repeatedly, “Stop it!” as the doors to the Capitol are pried open and Capitol Police bash protesters in the heads with billy clubs. Moments later, two men standing at the front, curiously call out to the crowd, “We need fresh patriots to the front!” Who are these two men calling for “fresh patriots”(Trump supporters) to come to the front of the line and be first into the Capitol building?
Screenshots from surveillance video in the tunnel show Anderson was struck with a chemical substance let loose by a male in the crowd.
Police officers later sprayed pepper spray, which also hit Anderson. He was assisted by officers through the tunnel after several minutes. Anderson said the officers saved his life.
But he also protested against the charges, which his lawyer says were not backed by evidence.
“John Anderson never hurt or touched a single police officer. The video evidence proves this,” Medvin said in an emailed statement. “John Anderson died an innocent man wrongfully accused.”
Before Anderson’s death, he and Medvin were preparing to reject a plea offer.
The government is preparing to dismiss the case against Anderson, according to his lawyer. That’s common practice, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth said in a separate case this month.
An untold number of innocent men and women have been held in prisons across America or are awaiting trial for the January 6th Capitol incident, dubbed an “insurrection” by the DNC’s dishonest mainstream media,
During his top-rated Fox News show, Tucker Carlson revealed details that point to the FBI as the ring-leaders or unidicted “co-conspirators” of the Capitol incident. Carlson cited court documents that made the claim that said ring leaders were, in fact, federal agents who played an indispensable role in orchestrating the escalation on January 6th, without which that day would have been marked by a purely peaceful demonstration. Indeed, as reported in a previous article, “The latest video to emerge shows the crowd being shown the door into the building as law enforcement officers stood to the side, allowing them to freely pass by. One of the law enforcement officers can be heard telling the protesters, “I disagree with you, but I respect you!” as the group walked unobstructed through the hallway of the Capitol building.”.

Indeed, in the aftermath of the incident, over two thousand criminal charges were levied against a total of 411 individuals. These charges included but were not limited to hundreds of felonies like trespassing with a weapon and assaulting law enforcement.
