These past few months have seen an influx of disgraced Capitol Hill rioters coming forward with pleas of apology and regret...
And the latest one to do so has issued a groveling statement in a last-ditch attempt to return home to his parents.
Scroll on to hear what he had to say...
Now, the events of January 6th remain etched upon the minds of us all.
As Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden's election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.
Hundreds of rioters forced their way into the prestigious building, breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with chants of "stop the steal!"
The violence that ensued was nothing short of horrifying.
And, as rioters clashed with the few police officers that were present, the world watched on in sheer disbelief.
From the get-go, there were calls for the then-president, Donald Trump, to intervene.
He was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.
However, he instead issued a series of tweets...
GettyWhere he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was "on our side," and to "remain peaceful."
The whole situation was nothing short of disgraceful...
And now, 2 months on, dozens of people have since been charged with firearms-related crimes and other offenses, including violent entry.
But, of course, many are seemingly having a change of heart.
"Capitol rioters express regret once they learn the might face consequences for their actions" lolzzzz— MitchinATL (@AtlMitchin) January 23, 2021
Despite their overwhelming loyalty to Donald Trump - I mean, they stormed the Capitol for him, for goodness sake - many of the rioters who were named and shamed for their role in the event have been coming forward with apologies.
Jacob Chansley, otherwise known as the "horn man," publicly spoke out against Donald Trump after being arrested and put in jail.
Chansley claimed that he and the other rioters were actively encouraged by the then-president...
His lawyer, Al Watkins, said:
"What's really curious is the reality that our president, as a matter of public record, invited these individuals, as President, to walk down to the Capitol with him. As to my client, the guy with the horns and the fur, the meditation, and organic food... I'm telling you that we cannot simply wave a magic wand and label all these people on January 6th the same."
Watkins said Chansley "regrets very, very much having not just been duped by the president, but by being in a position where he allowed that duping to put him in a position to make decisions he should not have made."
He then added that Chansley is willing to testify against Trump at his ongoing impeachment trial.
This sudden change of attitude is hardly surprising...
And now, another disgraced rioter from the event has spoken out about his own regret.
Eighteen-year-old Bruno Joseph Cua, from Georgia, has begged with a judge to release him from jail, new reports are claiming.
The teenager has been in federal custody since his arrest on February 5th for his role in the attack on the nation's Capitol.
He was charged with assault on a federal officer, civil disorder, and several other crimes, including entering the floor of the Senate, according to the criminal complaint.
Cua was videotaped in the Senate chamber and spotted in a video posted by The New Yorker magazine of the siege, the complaint said.
Cua was denied bond in part because of his history of violent rhetoric online, including a January 6th social media post that said:
"We didn't attack American people. We attacked the swamp rats," according to the Journal Constitution.
On his now-deleted Instagram account, the teen also boasted about his actions on January 6th.
"Yes, for everyone asking, I stormed the capital (sic) with hundreds of thousands of patriots. What happened was unbelievable," he continued. "Yes, we physically fought our way in."
Well, quite predictably, Cua is allegedly feeling somewhat remorseful over his actions...
They all do, don't they?
Cua wrote a letter to US District Court Judge Randolph D. Moss on Thursday begging to be sent home while he awaits trial, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
He promised in his letter "not to step one foot out of line" if was able to go back to his parents in their suburban Atlanta home.
Cua sent a message that read, "I love you, I love you both." to his parents on February 12th when he was denied bond.
"Given how inappropriate (sic) my social media activity was, I truly understand your worries," his letter continued. "I am not a danger to anyone, and I will absolutely never act on what I said."
A few sentences later, he then added:
"I have completely lost those aggressive feelings and moved on from the entire political (sic) idea. I was wrong."
However, prosecutors have objected to Cua's release to his parents' custody because they were the ones to drive with him to Washington.
