Now, the events from January 6th still haunt us to this day.

As a joint session of 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.

Scenes were truly shocking.

Breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with chants of “stop the steal!”

The rioters quickly went viral.

And photos showing them looting objects, such as the lectern of U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, quickly started circulating online.

Things went from bad to worse.

And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.

Even Trump got involved.

The former president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.

He instead issued a series of half-hearted tweets…

Where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was “on our side,” and to “remain peaceful.”

Trump’s behavior resulted in him being banned from all social media platforms…

And, as control was regained in the Capitol and the cleanup began, an impeachment investigation was launched into the former president for the role he played in the riots.

Of course, the aftermath of the event has been nothing short of unbelievable…

‚ÄčAnd, as the months have trickled by, more and more rioters have been named, shamed, and reprimanded for their actions. 

And the latest rioter to be?

He faces 7 charges for his actions on that day and people have a lot to say about it…

According to a criminal complaint shared by an Alabama FBI officer, investigators were first led to Manley back in August following a tip, the Alaska Public Media reports.

Agents are then said to have reviewed CCTV footage and public videos from the day and in the complaint, seen by Newsweek, it said Manley could be seen in the Lower West Terrace.

The outlet reports that the complaint read: “Manley can be seen inside the Lower West Terrace archway while U.S. Capitol Police and Metropolitan Police Department Officers were defending the entrance from rioters trying to enter the Capitol.”

“At approximately 2:53 p.m., Manley (circled in red) can be seen spraying pepper spray at the officers from a container that resembles the container seen in the previous screenshot.”

The complaint also alleged that Manley threw the empty canister at an officer…

Before he was given a metal rod which he also threw.

As per Newsweek, Manley faces 7 charges that include assaulting police officers, disorderly conduct and engaging in violence in a restricted building.

He is reportedly being held at the Anchorage Correctional Center.

Let’s hope he’s brought to justice.
