In today’s edition of “MAGA morons gone to hell,” we have a man by the name of Robert Reeder who got all teary-eyed when he appeared before a judge for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots that left five people dead.
In federal court, Reeder — who pleaded guilty to charges of illegally parading, demonstrating, and picketing the Capitol — told the judge that he was ever-so sorry for what he’d done and suggested being a part of the insurrection was “the biggest mistake of my life,” according to Scott MacFarlane of NBC 4 Washington:
Yeah, he supported the police so much that he took part in an illegal riot that left a member of the Capitol Police Force dead and numerous others injured and with lifelong post-traumatic stress disorder.
After offering up his empty apologies, Reeder began to whine about the toll his actions have had on him:
Reeder also said that he is no longer allowed to be a Boy Scout leader and even his church has told him to stay away from services so he won’t be “a distraction” for others in the congregation.
The judge, however, wasn’t all that receptive to Reeder’s tale of woe, McFarlane reports, remarking:
“It’s become evident to me in the riot cases, many of the defendants who are pleading guilty are not truly accepting responsibility. They seem to be trying to get this out of the way as quickly as possible.”
Reeder was sentenced to three months in jail, and his conviction will be public knowledge, meaning that his job prospects probably won’t be any better once he’s released from custody.
Does anyone actually believe Robert Reeder is contrite? If so, then you’d probably be interested in some lovely lakefront property I’m trying to unload.
