An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Charge all Capitol rioters

16 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

I think it’s important to send a message that if you storm the Capitol you will get in trouble. Therefore, I ask that you provide the DOJ with the manpower (and motivation) to charge each person identified as having taken part in the riot and trespass. Even non-violent trespassers served the purpose of drawing guards's attention away from those who had murderous intent, and intent to stop our Congress from its Constitutionally-relegated duties. The possibility that some of these people may get away with no charges continues to support a dual-approach to justice; I doubt that the same laissez-faire approach to charging people with crimes would have occurred if this was a mass of minorities overrunning our Capitol. Please, I ask this for justice, for the future, and for the protection of all those who work in the Capitol and depend on the guidelines of our Constitution.
