Apr 6 - Jailed Capitol Rioters Complain to Judge About Guards Whipping Their a*s

Capitol riot defendant alleges beating by jail guards
A man accused in the Jan. 6 unrest was left partially blind image

Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers.

For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and verbal harassment.

“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”
In an unusual direct plea to the judge, Sandlin said another Capitol riot defendant, Ryan Samsel, “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.” image

Sandlin also described racial tension between minority guards and the largely white defendants, some of whom have been publicly accused of membership in or a*sociation with white supremacist groups.

Sandlin said guards tackled “to the ground” one high-profile prisoner, Richard Barnett, 60, who was photographed with his boot up on a desk in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. Sandlin said one of the guards declared, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.” image

The three defendants raising alarms are charged with a wide range of crimes related to the Capitol breach. Sandlin, who posted images of himself smoking a joint in the Capitol Rotunda, is accused of tussling with multiple U.S. Capitol Police officers guarding the Senate chamber and trying to rip the helmet off of one of them. Samsel, who is currently on parole in Pennsylvania and is wanted for an unrelated alleged a*sault in New Jersey, is charged with toppling barricades on top of police officers, telling one, “We don’t have to hurt you, why are you standing in our way?”

Barnett is charged with entering the Capitol armed with a stun gun, entering Pelosi’s office and putting his feet on the furniture, as well as stealing a piece of mail from her office.

Defense attorneys for Samsel and Barnett confirmed the episodes described in court by Sandlin, which they said they learned about from their clients, clients’ family members and other attorneys.

“There is a pattern of abuse and of targeting of the defendants who are being held pursuant to what happened on Jan. 6,” said Joseph McBride of New York, a defense lawyer for Barnett. “It is targeted. It is ruthless. It is nonstop.” image

Steven Metcalf, a lawyer for Samsel, said that after his client complained last month about slow delivery of toilet paper, he was zip-tied, moved to a cell outside the view of surveillance cameras and brutally beaten by guards.

“I have seen Ryan. He has two black eyes to this day, two weeks later. All the skin is ripped off both wrists, which shows the zip ties and how tight they were,” said Metcalf, also from New York. “Other inmates said his face looked like a tomato that was stomped on.” imageimage

“We intend on filing a lawsuit against the two specific guards and the facility responsible for this scenario because Ryan Samsel did not deserve to get targeted and treated like this,” Metcalf added.

Another attorney for Samsel, Elisabeth Pasqualini, said that her client was moved to another “undisclosed” location earlier on Tuesday and that the episode in which he was injured last month was under investigation by the FBI.

A spokesperson for the jail system said the matter was under federal investigation.

“The Department of Corrections takes the safety and well-being of all residents, staff, and contractors extremely seriously,“ Keena Blackmon, a spokesperson for the D.C. Department of Corrections, said in an email statement. “We are aware of the allegation made by an inmate and it is under investigation by the Department of Justice.“

An FBI spokesperson would not say what the agency is doing about Samsel’s allegations, but said agents had been advised about them.

“The FBI is aware of the allegations; however, as a matter of policy, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation,” the spokesperson said by email on Tuesday evening.

Nearly all the Jan. 6 defendants who have reached Washington and remain in custody are being held at the Correctional Treatment Facility, a complex in southeast D.C. typically used for prisoners with health needs or who require isolation from the general jail population. About 40 Capitol riot defendants are currently at the CTF, defense lawyers said.

A D.C. jail spokesperson and an attorney who represents the D.C. government on such issues did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the allegations. Jail officials have previously informed the court that the Jan. 6 defendants have all been held in “restrictive housing” in order to protect them from potential altercations with other inmates.

“For their own safety and security, all of the detainees who are being held at the Jail in connection with the events that occurred on January 6, 2021 at the Capitol Building have been placed in restrictive housing,” Deputy Warden Michelle Jones said in a declaration submitted last month to Judge Royce Lamberth, who is presiding over a separate case related to Jan. 6.

One veteran D.C. defense attorney said many Capitol rioters were new to the District’s jail system and might believe they’re being specifically targeted when they’re simply unfamiliar with being in jail at all — particularly in the harsh conditions of 23-hour-a-day isolation.

During the hearing on Tuesday, Friedrich made no direct response to Sandlin’s complaints about the jail, but she set a further hearing for Thursday on his possible release from custody.

Pasqualini said she recognized that many people might have little sympathy for those accused of storming the Capitol, but that people who haven’t been convicted of any crime shouldn’t face such harsh conditions or abuse.

“For anyone inclined to think as a charged ‘Capitol Rioter,’ Mr. Samsel got what he deserved, I say get down from your mountain top, the hypocrisy in that air is distorting your vision,” she said in a statement. “Either we live in a democracy that believes in due process and equal justice before the law or we do not.”

At another hearing on Tuesday, the chief judge of the court handling the Jan. 6 cases openly bristled at a recent appeals court ruling that made it harder to hold those defendants in jail pending trial.

Chief Judge Beryl Howell said the March 26 decision from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals was inscrutable, and she repeatedly expressed disappointment that prosecutors did not appeal it further, but quickly agreed to release the two Jan. 6 defendants who brought the appeal, Eric Munchel and Lisa Eisenhart.

“The government just folded," Howell declared. She complained that District Court judges were “being put through the paces" by prosecutors and urged the rank-and-file prosecutor at her hearing to take the complaint to John Crabb, a top official in the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington.

The appeals court decision emphasized that the events of Jan. 6 occurred in an almost unique context and that predictions about the future actions of riot suspects needed to be a*sessed through that prism.

However, Howell called aspects of the D.C. Circuit ruling “irreconcilable” and suggested that in the wake of the ruling, only those who were videotaped engaging in hand-to-hand combat with police on Jan. 6 were likely to be held as they await trial.

“The Circuit's view is, gosh, take a taser, take some zip ties, walk around the Senate chamber — not a sign of future dangerousness,” Howell said.

Similar issues were aired on Tuesday in one of the government’s highest-profile Jan. 6 cases, the prosecution of four Proud Boys leaders. The D.C. federal judge a*signed to that case appeared skeptical about prosecutors’ efforts to detain defendants Ethan Nordean and Joseph Biggs ahead of trial.

Though prosecutors have described the pair as uniquely dangerous, able to a*semble a violent mass of Proud Boys to do their bidding at a moment’s notice, U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly said that so far there appeared to be little evidence that either of the men committed or encouraged violence on Jan. 6 itself.

“The evidence of violence on that day is pretty muted,” Kelly said of Biggs and Nordean.

“I’m not saying that at a future hypothetical trial, the government’s not going to be able to stitch together all of this and lay a lot of what happened that day … at their feet,” Kelly continued. “Maybe you will. But in terms of weighing the question of dangerousness and detention … when we get down to the day in question, there isn’t anything that is very clearly an invocation of violence. It does say something about the strength of the case at this moment."

Kelly issued no immediate ruling. The two men will remain jailed at least until another hearing the judge set for Friday

Anyone familiar with DC cops know they probably are getting their a*s whupped.. But sh*t. They lucky they not in Baltimore.

That said. I don’t like the police abuse of power. Hopefully these two retarded factions cancel each other out.

Police brutality, and brutality in prisons is fu*ked up and I stand by that despite their actions. One of the reasons US jails are the source of numerous continuous human rights violations.

But it’s difficult to have sympathy for these people. Instead of doing good work to stand against this type of behavior and make our system better, they went to the capital and caused an insurrection in support of a wannabe used car dictator who has no problems savaging and ruining the lives of people of color and their supporters.

So tbh, they gonna get that work in there and it ain’t gonna get better. I wonder if it’s even crossed their mind at this point that maybe, just maybe, that what black people and others have been saying about police brutality is true.

And real talk, not condoning violence, but I wonder if more of these racist scumbags need to experience something similar.

Normal jail sh*t and typical cac sh*t lying about black people.

"I hate Ll white people and your honkey religion "

Spoken like someone who has never been in physical proximity to black people.

Let's start a wager about the suicides that will undoubtedly occur when they start to recieve their prison sentences of years.

Can't even hold their water in jail surrounded by common thieves and men sentenced to days/weeks.

Imagine when they are truly surrounded by lifers and murderers who truly hate white people and their honkey religion.
