The occupying of the south lasted until the "compromise of 1877", after a close 1876 election, the commission developed a plan in which the Republican Party candidate of Rutherford Hayes would be awarded president over the Democrat Tilden for the removal of Federal Troops from the South. The democrats would with draw all objections to the election. These are different parties from today's, the Democrats wanted soldiers gone so they could get back to a quasi slave state situation. This is also the commission that the treasonist bastard Raphael Cruz, I'm gonna call him by the name is mama gave him, wanted to recreate.They smashed the Hell out of the South but when the Confederates surrendered at Appomattox Court House they were given rather favorable terms for treason. As I recall Soldiers were allowed to just go back home as long as they surrendered their weapons. They could also keep their horses. Now any number of Civil wars that have occurred over the last century probably ended far worse for the loser. Usually, we talking mass executions and long prison sentences. Lincoln had the right idea but in the wake of his death, it was poorly executed. If you're sending insurrectionists back home you at least need to occupy their territory for awhile. Which the US did but just didn't do it long enough. Reconstruction & occupation of the south lasted 12 years. Not even a generation. For comparison, Germany wasn't reunified after WWII for over 40 years. Given what happened last week we can't go easy on these folks. Short of facing a firing squad, these people need the max penalty and no parole. Generally, I am against Capital punishment except in cases where people invade the Capitol.

Two Off-Duty Virginia Police Officers Charged in Federal Court Following Events at the U.S. Capitol
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Two off-duty Rocky Mount, Virginia police officers were charged yesterday in federal court in the District of Columbia in connection with the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.
Jacob Fracker and Thomas Robertson were charged by complaint with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Both defendants were arrested on January 13, 2021, in Virginia. It is alleged that during the events at the U.S. Capitol, Fracker and Robertson were photographed in the Capitol building making an obscene gesture in front of the John Stark statue.
On social media, Robertson is quoted as saying, “CNN and the Left are just mad because we actually attacked the government who is the problem and not some random small business ... The right IN ONE DAY took the f***** U.S. Capitol. Keep poking us.” He also stated that he was “proud” of the photo on an Instagram post that was shared to Facebook, because he was “willing to put skin in the game.” On Facebook, Fracker posted a comment that read, “Lol to anyone who’s possibly concerned about the picture of me going around... Sorry I hate freedom? …Not like I did anything illegal…y’all do what you feel you need to.” The post has since been deleted.
These cases are being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Counterterrorism Section of the DOJ’s National Security Division, with assistance from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia. The cases are being investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and the United States Capitol Police.
The information contained in the charging documents are merely allegations. The defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
The ATF and FBI continue to urge the public to report suspected use of explosive devices, or violent, destructive acts associated with the recent unrest. Anyone with information can call 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477), email ATFTips@atf.gov or submit information anonymously via ReportIt.com.
The FBI is looking for individuals who may have incited or promoted violence of any kind. Anyone with digital material or tips can call 1-800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324) or submit images or videos at fbi.gov/USCapitol.

FBI Tracks Down Ex-Navy SEAL Who Boasted on Video About ‘Breaching the Capitol’
Indications are that Adam Newbold, 45, hasn't been arrested yet. He is however cooperating with the FBI ratting out all the co-conspirators that entered the capital with him. After, he has given the FBI all their names, perhaps he too will be charged.
More than that...SC politics, let alone certain parts of the south some people really have no chance. Places like GA and VA have areas with a large population of educated folks who can eat up the votes of the conservatives. Not like that in SC.He raised all that money and lost. Is that what the party wants to show to the world?
