Jan 6 rioters learn lessons too late
The Trump supporter, who allegedly electroshocked Officer Mike Fanone at the Capitol on Jan. 6, is trying to argue that he wasn't properly advised of his rights. This sad attempt fell through, as expected. This person is typical of a Trump supporter, who was/is brainwashed.
In a Ryan J. Reilly Huffpost article on 11/16/2021 details came out, regarding an interview with Danny Rodriguez who allegedly brawled with cops, tried to smash out a Capitol window, and assaulted a police officer on Jan. 6. Danny Rodriguez was arrested by the FBI in March, a month after HuffPost named him as the Capitol rioter who electroshocked Fanone when he was seized by the violent mob seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
A tearful Rodriguez called himself “so stupid,” during the FBI interview, and worried that his “mom’s gonna find out” what he did.
“Oh, God. I shouldn’t be crying,” he said before being advised of his rights. “I’m a grown man and I knew what I was doing.”
Rodriguez went on to confess to electroshocking Fanone, who suffered a heart attack.
“I really don’t know exactly why I Tased him,” Rodriguez said. “I mean, when I Tased him, I really ― you know, like, when you do something, you’re like, ‘gd..it’, why did I do that? I just ― I had ― got caught up in the moment and I didn’t really think. I didn’t think about him and his family and what was going to happen to him.”
As a reader of this account, one can do a forensic into the mind of one Trump supporter:
Rodriguez realizes too late, he was duped
“the election steal” was/is a lie.
killing and injuring police officers was a mistake
We know that Joe Biden is President and “IS” making America great. But watch the GOP try to take credit for the Biden recovery!
