A judge revoked bail Thursday for Capitol riot defendant Brandon Fellows, who will now be detained as he awaits trial. The ruling came after prosecutors said Fellows left rambling and sometimes obscene voicemails for his pretrial services officer and once called her mother, which left both the officer and her mother feeling nervous.
Fellows, 27, had previously been released on bail while facing a five-count indictment that includes a felony charge of obstruction. He is accused of entering the office of Senator Jeffrey Merkley during the Capitol breach, and was filmed propping his feet on an office desk while wearing a fake orange beard, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors had asked a judge twice to revoke his pretrial release, but the judge had previously denied both requests. On Thursday, Judge Trevor McFadden granted their third request, noting he could no longer give Fellows the benefit of the doubt after his sustained pattern of behavior.
Poor Fellows likely sees himself as some romantic revolutionary figure fighting against a rigged, oppressive system that’s determined to rob him of his rights.
The frightening aspect: this is exactly the perspective of the woke left. The noble rebel against the oppressive system.
Conservatives want to preserve the structures that work. Increasingly, though, both left and right now simply seek to tear it all down.
I have long argued that left and right are converging. And that is clearly a massive win only for the hard left. The Capitol riot, ironically, only increases chaos to the delight of Marxists everywhere. Careful whatcha wish for, Bubba.
Oh my God! Why don't they just execute him? He walked into the Capitol Building, entered a public official's office (which every citizen has the right to be in), and rudely put his feet up on the desk of an official?
He also wore a FAKE orange beard!!! TERRORISM!!! Sounds to me like his crimes need to made an example of. No less than summary execution will do! Sorry to sound harsh, but putting your feet on a government official's desk is a death sentence but that fake beard...that added TERRORISM! Anyone who wears a fake orange beard is a TERRORIST!!!
One solution for terrorists...mess with the Liberals...make it difficult for the Liberals to get re-elected...forget about Guantanamo. Summary execution!
He was a protester, not a rioter - where is he RIOTING!
