Henry's Bad Day

It looks like self-described Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day:

His arrest was confirmed by the NYT: To top it off, he was caught with two high-capacity firearm magazines, a no-no in DC: Regarding his destruction of property charges, he admitted to burning Black Lives Matter banners stolen from a historic African-American church, so he might be facing hate crimes charges. The 'against the wishes of my attorney' ups the Schadenfreude level: Hank doesn't seem like a very smart boy... he's also a convicted felon: Hopefully, he'll still be cooling his heels in the pokey by the time the January 6th MAGA Denial Rally takes place.  I even more sincerely hope that his arrest and jailing serves as a warning to the rest of the potential attendees to leave their shooting irons at home, that the DC Metropolitan Police and Capitol Police mean business this time.  It's going to be a shitshow, to be sure, but having one of the major poo-flingers in custody is somewhat reassuring. Thank goodness this current crop of fascists is universally stupid, from Trump on down to his lowliest footsoldier-wannabe.

Good. What took so long? I hope they keep him for a while. No bail for that one.

Yeah, they do tend to get coddled by the authorities. Hopefully, he'll miss out on the 6th.
