Most of the people following the J6 trials or plea agreements know about John Strand. He was the security guard for Simone Gold. He protected her during the j6 rally. She had a permit to speak at this event but was prevented to do it as planned. She decided to do it inside the Capitol. There were no signs to indicate this was illegal and thinking that the Capitol is the people’s house she could not have thought her action would be considered a crime . She and John entered the Capitol and as many others did not hurt anyone or broke anything. They both were peaceful.
Simone, one of the famous doctors who opposed COVID mandates and intimidations by the government is also a lawyer. She took a plea and served 60 days in a federal prison (see below). John decided to not take a plea and go to trial in order to demonstrate what a charade all these trials are. We are in a banana republic as the various indictments of President Trump show as well. This is what most American have come to describe our nation.
John is a very courageous man. He knew that his trial would be a travesty of justice. He knew he would face an underserved sentence, yet his resolved remained the same all the way to the end. We hold Judge Cooper accountable for his unjust punishment of a great American.
Please pray for John and all the other J6ers who all face horrendous sentences for being present at the Capitol on January 6th. We all know this was a plot to build a narrative to indict President Trump.
John is keeping in touch with his supporters with the help of a friend on X (aka Twitter).
