I am sure they are already being persecuted. The level of false narrative, shaming, and outright hatred towards these folks makes it a guarantee.

But I think you were asking about PROSecution.

If that is the question, then I think it depends on which Jan 6 event you are talking about, and what you mean by "participate."

So.... For folks who showed up to the rally, did not march to the capitol, and went home. No. No prosecution.

For the folks who went to the Capitol, shouted about how the election was stolen, but did not break down barriers, and did not enter. Again, no prosecution.

For those who chanted "Hang Mike Pence," attacked LEOs, or actively participated in breach. Yes, prosecution.

For those who destroyed or stole property within the Capitol. Yes, prosecution.

For those who made threats against Pence, Congress Critters, and/or LEOs. Yes, prosecution.

For those who were INVITED IN, left when asked, did not destroy or steal property, and cooperated with LEOs, no prosecution. Even if they posed for photos.

And, of course, the caveat for all of these is the government being able to prove that the individual did what they are accused of doing. Simply being arrested for doing something is not proof that you did it.

A1C Mark Vinsand - there are multiple videos of the Capital police removing barriers and people peacefully walking into the Capital. Should those people be looking at jail time?

As a criminal justice major who has followed this case extensively, federal prosecutors are only able to charge and try individuals they can directly link to a crime that occurred on the day. Service members can attend any protest they want as long as to not be representing the DOD in any capacity I.e in uniform. So the answer is no, they can not try service members for attending UNLESS the individuals can be linked directly to a crime that occurred q

and some were charge and they take an oath to defend this country, not over throw it, and if they are that dumb to believe the lies, they are not worthy of serving our great county

SPC Thomas Devine not accurate. The oath is to defend the Constitution, not the country. Also note that the oath specifically states against ALL enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC. If the country has become so corrupt that it no longer follows the Constitution, then those who are oathbound have a duty to actively defend the Constitution from those domestic enemies.

CPT Mick Maag - ...
Captain Mick,
The Teachers Are NOT The Issue. We Have An Abundance Of GREAT Teachers, It's The Curriculum They Have To Teach, Is Where The Problems Are.
EXAMPLE "The No Child Left Behind" Program Is Nothing More Than A FARCE.
The Theory Was : The Lower Level Student Gets Brought UP To The Standards Of The Others.
But Here's What MUST Happen To Meet The "No Child Left Behind" Programs:
Classes Are Taught To The LOWEST Level Student;....At This Point, Nobody Fails... PERIOD,
Therefore "No Child IS Left Behind", But ALSO, Nobody's Learned A Damned Thing , EITHER,
But The Program IS Successful, And Reported As Such.....
With The Public Remaining Ignorant To The Facts Of What's Actually Occurring.

Did I NOT Already Post This Somewhere??

If you believe flag poles, chairs, other instruments used to smash windows, and yes, according to some of the people they were armed and had weapons available across the river. Don't tell be they weren't armed! Don't tell me it was only the rioters stating their opinions. THEY ATTACKED THE CAPITAL TO OVERTHROUGH THE GOVERNMENT! Get your head out of your ass.
