    If you choose to believe that the sky is plaid, then you can believe that. That is your opinion. You also can choose to believe this was an insurrection:

    Which "belief" has far more supporting evidence?

    How is actual video not provable or actual? Are you saying that video is fake?

    Do you think the video provided a comprehensive and accurate depiction of the Jan 6 events?

    Just post a 15 second clip of the Gators scoring against Missouri and then claim we won the game. Genius

    No, just the opposite. Plenty of video of violence. the defendants were identified by video committing violence. that they may have had moments when they weren't throwing fire extinguishers or beating cops with flag poles, or pepper spraying security is irrelevant.

    This is cultish and getting more weird and creepy as time goes on. That said, for example, I have never supported throwing the book at non violent protesters who entered later. Have to take the defendants on a case by case basis.

    Video of a person or persons not committing crime at point X, is in no way exculpatory if they were on video committing a crime at point Y.

    I’m rather amazed this has to be explained.

    For the most part that’s how it has worked. Everyone that merely trespassed got mere weeks/months in jail with many avoiding jail time.

    Those who committed violence got more time (maybe a year, with the serious offenders and conspirators getting the worst). I’ve posed this question. Which individual was charged for a crime they didn’t commit or received an unjust sentence? Gets crickets every time.

    I wasn't referring to any crime, I was just saying the actual video is just that, actual. Whether it proves something one way or another is a different discussion.

    Well nothing proves no crime was committed like worthless big gov agents standing around doing nothing while a crime was being committed. You know, cuz Conta’s beloved BIG GOV only stands for lawfulness & righteousness.

    It’s rather amazing that NOW a video of cops sucking demonstrates something significant.

    Repeating the same action, but expecting a different outcome. You've never heard that phrase? :rolleyes:

    You are a little too uptight, there, Francis.

    It's only idiotic if you actually take it literally. Otherwise it's descriptive.

    IMO, the only chance it has of being descriptive of a mental deficiency is if you take it literally. Otherwise, it is a better description of the awful affliction of perseverance
