FBI releases 10 videos of MAGA rioters attacking cops at Capitol

The FBI has released a slew of 10 new videos showing MAGA rioters at the U.S. Capitol dousing cops with bear spray, grabbing gas masks and beating officers on January 6.

The agency noted before the videos that their contents contain disturbing images and has asked for help from the public in identifying the violent rioters.

In the ‘bolo’ – or ‘be on the lookout’ – video for unidentified rioter #91, the man is seen wearing a red flannel jacket and grey cap as he batters an officer with some sort of stick or rod five times before throwing it at the officer.

Another camera angle shows the officer bracing from the hits with their arm as the violent mob swarms the capitol. The suspect appears to be wearing a black and gold band on his right arm, the signature colors of the Proud Boys.

The Proud Boys, founded by Gavin McInnes, are self-described ‘Western chauvinists’ who have been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center

In another video from the same location that appears to have happened before the incident with #91, man #231 was filmed deploying bear spray at a group of officers before then throwing the empty can at them.

Another video angle shows cops appear to return fire, deploying their own pepper spray in the man’s face as he grabs at their riot shields.

It appears that someone deploys a Taser at the start of the chaotic video. The video cuts to another angle, in which an officer wearing a bike helmet is seen on the ground attempting to arrest another man.

That man shouts: ‘Oh wow, I’m being kicked by the cops.’

Then #114, while holding a riot shield and what appears to be a stun baton, lunges forward and appears to use the stun baton on police as electric charges are heard on the video.

An officer then pull out their yellow Tasers and attempt to shoot #114 with it, but is unsuccessful when the rioter blocks the pins with his shield. 

Man #123, wearing a sparkly blue mask, was filmed grunting while trying to remove a gas mask from the face of a federal officer.

The FBI noted in its release that it has arrested more than 300 people who took place in the Capitol riots after receiving ‘hundreds of thousands of tips from the American people.’

‘Of those, more than 65 were arrested for assaulting law enforcement officers,’ the FBI noted. 

‘However, some of the most violent offenders have yet to be identified, including the 10 seen assaulting officers in the video footage we are releasing today.’
