Retired Firefighter Who Put Feet Up On Pelosi’s Desk Sentenced To 4.5 Years In Prison | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A retired Arkansas firefighter who placed his feet on Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) desk on January 6, 2021, has been sentenced to over four years in prison after he was convicted of felony charges of civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding.

    Richard "Bigo" Barnett was given 54 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper and three years of supervised release and a $2,000 fine. Additional charges included theft of government property, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and parading or demonstrating in a capitol building.

    Barnett, 62, was accused of carrying a stun device into the Capitol, which he said had no batteries on January 6.

    "All the folks who follow 'Bigo' need to know the actions of January 6 cannot be repeated without some serious repercussions," Cooper said during the sentencing. The picture of Barnett with his feet on Pelosi's desk quickly became famous, something he said he did after photographers told him to "act natural."

    After he left the office, Barnett said that he left Pelosi a note on her desk.

    "I did not steal it," Barnett said, holding an envelope with Pelosi's letterhead on it. "I bled on it because they were macing me and I couldn't f***ing see so I figured I am in her office. I got blood on her office. I put a quarter on her desk even though she ain't f***ing worth it. And I left a note on her desk that says, 'Nancy, Bigo was here you b***.'"

    There was later controversy over what word Barnett used on the note to describe Pelosi, with his lawyers arguing that he had written something less vulgar. Barnett told the court that he was sorry for his actions.

    "I've made mistakes. I have made mistakes. And I regret those mistakes. I've gotten confused in my testimony. I went through hell up there. The officers went through hell up there. It was a horrible, horrible day," he said.

    Joseph D. McBride, Barnett's defense lawyer, argued that his client was being treated unfairly.

    "They have literally made a federal case out of an act of stupidity that could have been dispensed with a ticket and a fine," he said. "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this is the government that our forefathers warned us about."

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Your own response clearly suggests otherwise.

Yahoo News is about as reliable as Pravda of the STalin era. It is hard left propaganda, nothing else. My email account was with Yahoo for many many years, but when their "news" changed from somewhat objective to hard core far left propaganda, I switched to a different email provider. Maybe you will cite the Daily Worker next.

Any rational person, outside the hard left propaganda "media" knows that Jim Crow died decades ago.

Enjoy your OLD CROW.

JS, the correct response is, oh crap, that stuff is still happening? What can I do?
Instead you post what you posted. Not only is Mr. Crow alive, but you're his best friend.

I think the problem is that Bullshot Bob has had too much OLD CROW.

John Steed: You can make all the salient points you want, but Leftists, like Big Bob, only hear the Corrupt-Propagandists-Posing-as-Journalists lying to him, and his kind, over and over again to the point they can't think their way "out of a wet paper bag."

That is why we are here: Real Journalism; only the truth ... and some satire thrown in the mix.

Save it. They were going to hang MP. The sitting VP.

When Rudi and the kraken lady nut is your lead, what do you expect? No court in the land would except Trumps BS and yet some go on like two year olds whose mommy wont buy the candy. Trump lost.

One was due to widespread election irregularities which were not even properly investigated to determine if they rose to the level of fraud, just swept under the rug. The other was a Marxist insurrection which used the unfortunate demise of a criminal while in law enforcement custody as a trigger. One was violent, although the propaganda media told us is was "firey but mostly peaceful" as a building was being burned down in the background. The other was genuinely peaceful except for some law enforcement brutality, including the deliberate execution of a protester.

The 2020 insurrection was violent and destructive and prolonged. The 2021 protest was a one day, acutally a few hours, event and was peaceful from the protesters side, even though ANTIFA / BLM infiltrators tried to provoke violence and destruction.

But the key on prosecution and punishment should be WHAT THEY DID, not what their ideology was or why they did it. When the 2020 insurrectionists set buildings on fire, all of them present should have been rounded up and charged with felony arson based on the concept of acting in concert.

The reasons for the two "protests' remain completely different. One legitimate, the other a temper tantrum thrown because you lost an election.

The siege of the White House during the Marxist BLM / Antifa insurrection was a more aggressive act than the Capitol riot. The preimeter of White House defenses were attacked with a military-type strategy looking for weak points. The siege lasted weeks rather than one day. There were more officer injuries defending the White House than the Capitol, and no deaths or injuries to the Shite House attackers by law enforcement.

While BLM / Antifa instigators were telling the Jan. 6 crowd "burn it down" referring to the Capitol, no one even tried to do that. Those involved in the White House siege, however, did set fire to a historic church across the street from the White House, doing a lot of damage.

The long dead Mr Crow is NOT an excuse for the Manoist Cultural Revolution attacking our history and our institutions being mounted by the two Marxist organizations BLM and Antifa.

The process of killing Mr. Crow is messy, but BLM is not trying to over throw the government. That's on you.
