In September 2023, Army Veteran Reed K. Christensen was found guilty on eight charges, including four felonies and four misdemeanor offenses, after attending the January 6 rally.
The 65-year-old Christensen, who was pepper sprayed by Capitol Police, was found guilty of assault for bumping into a police officer while blinded.
In April of 2021, his home was raided by over a dozen FBI agents for the crimes of walking on the grass and trying to get past the guards to wave the flag on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

I had only been two weeks in the DC gulag and already my nails were way too long. I am 65 years old, and the younger men here had patiently explained that you simply chew your nails and then grind them down on the cement blocks of your cell. I was pretty sure this would not work for me as my teeth were too dull to even open the condiment packets that come in each meal.
