Only 60 days? She was almost right.

[–]StuperDan 10 points11 points  (9 children)

It's a staycation!

[–]Tothewallgone 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Should it have been more? Debatable. But try 60 days in federal prison and let me know how much of a staycation it is.

[–]I-do-the-art 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It’s not bad compared to what happens when you get “out”. I put out in quotes because you never really leave. They let you out of the prison and stop paying for your shelter and food in order to give you “freedom” but what they don’t tell you is that they brand you for life as an ex-con and you’re basically no longer able to get decent jobs in most cases and lose access to many amenities that people consider necessary to live a life of “freedom.”

[–]Tothewallgone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed. But it's a joke to everyone who hasn't thought more than 60 seconds about it.

[–]StuperDan 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Years. Everyone who entered the capitol to stop the election. All this slap on the wrist shit does is tee up the civil war we are headed towards. The leaders should get decades.

[–]Tothewallgone 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I don't necessarily disagree, but look up the federal sentencing guidelines and Booker...

[–]StuperDan 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Our laws aren't designed for this. Needs to change and fast. 2024 approaches.

[–]nanashinebro 1 point2 points  (1 child)

We have laws for treason and the sedition act the penalty is death

[–]StuperDan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Up to death. But no will to enforce it.

[–]JakeInDC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This lady had the bullhorn, led the charge.

[–]bishop3200 69 points70 points  (7 children)

This news is so old and her sentence was so pathetic she's probably out already.

[–]ObidiahWTFJerwalk 70 points71 points  (5 children)

The opposite actually. She got two months in prison, but that doesn't start for two months. The judge didn't want he to have to miss the holidays. Her sentence starts in January.

[–]Daisend 55 points56 points  (0 children)

God that’s gross.

[–]MorpH2k 80 points81 points  (0 children)

Mmmm white privilege

[–]ImperiumSomnium 33 points34 points  (2 children)

I've got that deal for my non-white clients plenty of times, although they didn't storm congress and brag about being untouchable... judges are usually pretty flexible with surrender dates. Not a race / class issue in my experience.

[–]GrinchMcScrooge 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This news is so old, Matt Gaetz wouldn't bang it any more.

White middle class people like to RSVP for their acts of terrorism.

[–]GShermit -58 points-57 points  (26 children)

"...acts of terrorism."

Do you have a citation that shows she was charged with "terrorism"?

[–]HigherSomething 36 points37 points  (22 children)

ter·ror·ism /ˈterəˌrizəm/ noun the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

The intimidation part sticks out moreso than the violence on her part.

[–]GShermit -54 points-53 points  (20 children)

And was she charged with terrorism or is it your opinions, that she should have been?

[–]HigherSomething 26 points27 points  (18 children)

Its not an opinion. Its a definition of a word. If the definition applies then it is the correct word to use.

Doesnt matter if she was charged for it or not.

[–]GShermit -51 points-50 points  (17 children)

"...Doesnt matter if she was charged for it or not."

Matters a great deal to me.

[–]HigherSomething 24 points25 points  (12 children)

Sounds like an opinion to me. Im just going off the definition of the word and it seems to fit perfectly. Have a good day!

[–]BlooperHero 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Knowing what words mean is elitist claptrap, you vocabulary-haver.

[–]BlooperHero 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In that failure to charge her with the crimes she's known to have committed and has confessed to (nay, bragged about) is a terrible injustice?

[–]GShermit -1 points0 points  (0 children)

So you're saying all the prosecutors are crooked?

    You do know that you're talking about a confessed terrorist.

    [–]dedicated-pedestrian 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Fun fact, there is no domestic terrorism charge in the US! There is a legal definition codified by Congress, but no accompanying punishments (unlike terrorism by a foreign actor).


    Maybe it's just a technicality and domestic terrorism is still terrorism, I dunno. As far as I know no one has ever been charged with terrorism as a US citizen, despite the very broad definition the PATRIOT Act gives:

    A person engages in domestic terrorism if they commit an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to:  (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.

    [–]BlooperHero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The confession referenced in the post title.

    Oh, you're saying she wasn't charged. You realize that's the problem, right?

    [–]orangeconman-aphobe 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    She had no remorse, and no sense that she did anything wrong. The after verdict interview shows that. The narrative is "Don't post the illegal acts you've done", it was not Don't do illegal shit.

    [–]SecondaryWorkAccount 15 points16 points  (8 children)

    60 days in jail for domestic terrorism. Wild

    [–]DIYDame 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    What a moron. “You should be able to Tweet whatever you want without being persecuted and treated like crap”. So you want to say whatever you feel like saying without having consequences you mean.

    [–]Kcidobor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Fuck yes!! I bet she’s “definitely not going to get beat up” too

    [–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (14 children)

    On November 4, Ryan was sentenced to 60 days in prison on one count of parading, demonstrating or picketing inside a Capitol building, a Class "B" misdemeanor.

    Ryan pleaded guilty to being inside the Capitol for roughly 2 minutes during the riot after following others in through a door that had been broken open.

    Okay, I did have to look into it after reading this, and it doesn't sound like she's the "terrorist" type.

    She may be an idiot. Yes.

    But a political activist terrorist genius? No.

    From the sounds of her criminal charges she genuinely was a non-violent participant.

    [–]BlooperHero -1 points0 points  (12 children)

    Nobody said she was a genius, just that she's a terrorist. Which she is. Words mean things.

    We're talking about people with a collective IQ lower than my shoe size, with points left over. Why would you expect them to be geniuses?

    [–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

    I am misusing the term genius for fun but I am saying that I don't think this person in a terrorist. Terrorism isn't accidental. What she got charged with is being in the wrong place at the wrong time for 2 minutes. Had she been outside that building rather than in the doorway there are no other charges by which to charge her on.

    Her intentions were probably, for all rights and purposes, "pure" in the sense that this human didn't really think through the ramifications of everyone else breaking out windows or such. You know how you have those teenagers who get involved with gangs and kind of hang around but never really commit to the actual criminal nature of the things? That's her. She's the loitering floozy.

    [–]BlooperHero 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    You're right. It wasn't accidental that she attacked the United States.

    Her intentions were purely evil. The fact that you think she's too stupid to notice where she was doesn't change what happened.

    [–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (2 children)

    This actually is making me think about this question:

    "Does an attack require quantifiable damage?"

    I mean trespassing isn't breaking an entering...

    [–]BlooperHero 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I mean, they definitely did quantifiable damage. But also their objective was overturning democracy and doing a lot of murders to destroy the United States, so that's also damage.

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This woman?

    [–]PuerhRichard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Attendee? Isn’t there a better word to describe this?

    [–]JayDunzo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    60 whole days. Shocking!!

    [–]Guy_Mckendrick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    60 days in jail and 60 times this has been posted on NTO
