DoJ Goes Eating at Waffle House

Federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should decline to charge some of the individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol this month — a politically loaded proposition but one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases could swamp the local courthouse.
...
Justice Department officials have promised a relentless effort to identify and arrest those who stormed the Capitol that day, but internally there is robust back-and-forth about whether charging them all is the best course of action. That debate comes at a time when officials are keenly sensitive that the credibility of the Justice Department and the FBI are at stake in such decisions, given the apparent security and intelligence failures that preceded the riot, these people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss legal deliberations.

I, for one, don't care if the DoJ has to import Federal judges from across the country to try these cases. I don't care if they have to erect temporary courtrooms on the National Mall, the way that temporary office buildings were put up during the Second World War.

These clowns tried to violently subvert our government on January 6th, 2021. That point is beyond reasonable dispute. Whether it was eighty insurrectionists, eight hundred or eighty thousand, they all need to be held accountable for their actions.

Right up to those who plotted to overturn the government and those who twisted their minds with bullshit lies, including all of the propagandists who are now spreading the lie that Democrats are going to set up re-education camps for the Trumpanzees.

Easy way to thin the numbers. If they were outside the capitol but on the grounds, trespassing ticket. If they were inside the building, Book em Danno.

Easy peazy...

Set up a few dozen 5 man tents, add a desk a chair, judge, and
a bailiff or other armed person, add stenographer or cameras
(for the record!). Likely there is no shortage of small
offices to do this in as well.

Shortage of judges draft them!

First round is the arraignment. If plead is guilty then
proceed to judgement and criminal liability and BOP picks
the miscreat up.

For those pleading not guilty and already attained either guilt and criminal liability and BOP or setting a date for trial either before judge or with jury.

Keep it simple and moving. Most of them have the same smaller charge.

For the more involved cases then use rooms.

Hiel biden . You want kangaroo courts .You will get what you pay for a hole.

Nobody has said anything about kangaroo courts. That was all on your side of the aisle, Wayne. It was your side that wanted to lynch people.

You have no grounds to be complaining, here.

Excuse me for only being half sarcastic, but what is wrong with "re-education camps" for the Rethugs?
What else can we do with that many citizens caught up thinking insurrection is the answer to losing an election? It's definitely a fault in their education, as I see it.
It makes sense.

WW, you fell for the trap.

At no time did I suggest a kangaroo court or roman circus. You did.

I just made it clear if we are to execute due process and justice
in a timely way we can strip the fancy setting and vestments
and still be functional in its judicial application of law.

If there is a crime I was addressing it is the poor guy sitting
in a jail waiting for his hearing for days or even months awaiting
a trial. However once the trial is commenced it needs to be
formally complete.
