(TheIndependentStar.com) – Individuals held in jail for their involvement in the January 6 incident at the Capitol have issued various complaints about their living conditions and treatment while incarcerated. On November 11, another incident came to light.
Jonathan Moseley, attorney for multiple detainees from the Capitol incident, said one of the individuals refused to put on a face mask. This prompted a guard to mace him for disobeying orders. The altercation sparked additional conflicts between guards and inmates. Eventually, officers had to lock down the jail — but not before deploying tear gas.
Mosley said there is some suggestion from the guards that inmate vaccine statuses raised concerns. This ultimately forced the jail to enact strict health measures, leading to the conflict.

The attorney accuses progressive members of Congress and corporate media of characterizing Jan 6 detainees as white supremacists, saying they are in danger of abuse by guards. Yet, Mosley says the mistreatment is only part of the story. He also characterizes the jail as unsanitary, pointing to a contempt ruling handed down by Judge Royce Lambert requiring the facility to clean and fumigate.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) called the incident abuse. She’s asking for an investigation into the incident. Greene has been an outspoken advocate for the fair treatment of those arrested during the events of January 6.
