BREAKING: DC Guards Maced 1/6 Inmate for Not Wearing Face Mask, Sparking Fight That Required Jail to Lockdown

Inmates from the January 6 protests were involved in a fight between guards at a D.C. jail, after one inmate who refused to wear a mask was maced by a guard, a lawyer for one of the inmates tells National File.

Amid various media reports of abuse by guards onto prisoners locked up in a Washington D.C. jail for their alleged involvement in the January 6 protests on Capitol Hill, National File now understands that on Thursday, another incident of seeming abuse occurred.

Attorney Jonathon Moseley, who represents multiple January 6 detainees, told National File that one detainee who refused to wear a face mask was maced by a guard for his noncompliance.

This incident then sparked off a “ruckus” between the inmates and the guards. Tear gas was subsequently deployed at the detainees by the guards, resulting in the inmates struggling to breathe. Three detainees were taken out on stretchers. As a result, the entirety of those prisoners have been on lockdown since 10 a.m. on Thursday.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has been an advocate for many of those who have been jailed as a result of the January 6 protests, called for the US Marshals to investigate the incident immediately. “This abuse of Americans must END NOW!” Taylor Greene wrote, calling for D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to shut the jail down. “These detainees are pre-trial and this is a violation of their constitutional rights.”

Moseley told National File that it appears some of the guards are using their vaccine status to justify stringent coronavirus measures, such as the enforcement of the wearing of face masks, even though many prisoners have been vaccinated themselves.

Moseley argued that a reason for potential mistreatment and abuse was because the guards may be influenced by members of Congress and the media who falsely portray the detainees as Neo-Nazis or white supremacists. “If the people who work in the jail all believe it, these people may be in danger from these false statements,” Moseley said.

He added that the jail itself is also a “mess,” with reports of US Marshals discovering unsanitary black mold. Judge Royce Lambert held the head of the jail in contempt, and ordered that the jail be chemically fumigated or cleansed as a result. Fellow attorney Brad Geyer claimed that following the cleaning, other January 6 inmates are “complaining that suddenly their food smells of chemicals.”

The federal government’s prosecutors have also attempted to move one of Moseley’s other January 6 clients, Zach Rehl, to the D.C. jail where today’s violence occurred.

Rehl has been imprisoned since March of this year, and missed the birth of his daughter while detained. After Rehl ended his relationship with his prior attorney, and while he was actively searching for another, the prosecution sought to transport him to Washington, D.C. Moseley has fought this, citing reports of abuse and startlingly poor conditions in the facility.

Rehl, who is the president of the Philadelphia chapter of the Proud Boys, is currently raising money for his defense, and expects he will need up to $75,000 to prove his innocence.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living varied experiences as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.

  1. Remember everyone that democrats cannot be put under oath because of the words in the oath “IN GOD WE TRUST”. Remember they do not believe in GOD anymore so they lie when given the oath !!! Is anyone that naive to really believe that Dr.Fauci is a truthful person?
