As the plans for Biden's presidency begin to unfold, tensions amongst the pro-Trump community escalated to shocking levels.

While it's taken weeks for the president himself to concede to Biden...

His supporters have been fueling the flames behind his various election fraud allegations.

And last Wednesday, those tensions reached a breaking point.

On January 6th, during which 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.

Hundreds of rioters forced their way into the prestigious building...

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

The rioters took over several of the rooms and chambers in the building...

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

A group of rioters even broke into Pelosi's office...

With one posing in her chair with his feet up on the desk.

From this, more violence ensued...

As rioters clashed with the few police officers in presence.

The scenes shocked people all over the globe...

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

Shortly afterward, it was confirmed that there had been fatalities within the Capitol.

Chief Robert Contee III of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, confirmed the news during a press conference.

It quickly emerged that one female rioter had been shot dead by police...

However, details surrounding the other 4 fatalities remain unclear. "One adult female and 2 adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies on or around Capitol grounds," Contee said, "which resulted in their deaths." Later, it was reported that another person had also died.

From the get-go, there were calls for Trump to intervene.

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

He instead issued a series of tweets, from his official account which has now been suspended from all social media platforms...

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

Hours after his supporters had stormed the Capitol, however, Trump finally released a video telling them:

"Go home, we love you, you’re very special."

Photographs and videos of Wednesday's scenes continue to circulate online...

Many of which also show the aftermath of the siege.

The videos and images have been quick to go viral on Twitter...

And show the extent of the damage that was done within the building.

Rioters left various messages throughout the building.

As well as lengthier notes...

A bust of Zachary Taylor had a red substance smeared on it.

Now, some of the perpetrators of this horrific crime have been brought to justice.

Several arrests have already been made, with key suspects being identified via video footage from the scene. Some, however, weren't hard to spot, given their choice of riot gear.

One particular rioter that was arrested turned out to be the CEO of a Chicago-based company...

And upon being identified as Brad Rukstales, he lost his job as the head of Cogensia for his reckless actions.

However, it seems as though a lot of people didn't feel too bad for him...

And right before he was arrested, he released a statement explaining his actions.

via: Getty

In it, he apologized for bringing "embarrassment" to his "family, friends, colleagues, and fellow countryman."

But it seems as though the damage has been done.

The company has already put Joel Schiltz, senior vice president and Chief Operating Officer of the marketing technology company as acting CEO in Rukstales’ absence.

Schiltz said this about the situation:

"This decision was made because Rukstales’ actions were inconsistent with the core values of Cogensia. Cogensia condemns what occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, and we intend to continue to embrace the values of integrity, diversity, and transparency in our business operations, and expect all employees to embrace those values as well," as reported by Cision.

They also released a statement on LinkedIn in which they re-iterated their company values:

via: LinkedIn

"We have been informed that our CEO, Brad Rukstales’ participated in the recent Washington DC protests. Mr. Rukstales’ actions were his own; he was not acting on behalf of our company nor do his actions in any way reflect the policies or values of our firm."

Hopefully, justice and democracy will prevail.
