I have never felt it to be the decent thing to do, even when it came to people I disagreed with, to deprive them of the ability to feed their family.

On one occasion, I was driving a member of the family home from a gathering where they got into an argument with another person and for some reason, all that was on their mind was calling this person’s boss to basically try to get them fired somehow.

I pulled the car over and told the person in question that if they did that I would never speak to them again because you should never deny a person the chance to feed themselves, at least not for disagreeing with you politically.

The search for suspects who allegedly took part in storming the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday has led to the arrest of four men for alleged crimes related to the attack that included the deaths of a Trump supporter and a Capitol Police officer.

The breach of the Capitol took place following a rally at the White House where President Donald Trump spoke to his supporters.

On Friday the Department of Justice announced charges against an Alabama man that include “one count of unlawful possession of a destructive device, and one count of carrying a pistol without a license.”

Lonnie Leroy Coffman, 70, of Falkville, Alabama, was arrested Thursday and charged in a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Coffman remains in custody pending a detention hearing set for January 12.

The DOJ said U.S. Capitol Police responded to a report of possible explosives in the area around the United States Capitol. In a sweep of the area, officers found a truck registered to Coffman that contained weapons and explosives:

USCP Bomb Squad members subsequently searched the vehicle and secured one black handgun, one M4 Carbine assault rifle along with rifle magazines loaded with ammunition, and components for the construction of eleven “Molotov Cocktails” in the form of mason jars filled with ignitable substances, rags, and lighters.

Later that evening, Coffman was stopped in the vicinity of his truck when he attempted to return to his vehicle. Coffman was subsequently searched and found to have on his person a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun, a 22-caliber derringer style handgun, and two sets of vehicle keys that matched the truck.

Coffman is charged with one count of unlawful possession of a destructive device, which carries a maximum prison term of up to 10 years, and one count of carrying a pistol without a license under D.C. law, which carries a maximum prison term of up to 5 years.

On Saturday the DOJ announced arrests and charges against three other men from Florida, Arizona, and West Virginia, related to the January 6 event.

Jacob Anthony Chansley, a.k.a. Jake Angeli, of Arizona, was charged with “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.” He was arrested on Saturday.
