    Much-hyped 'Justice for J6' Capitol rally to support Jan. 6 prisoners a dud.
    Washington Examiner (Moderate Right) • Factual Grade 78% • 4 min read

    The media and law enforcement vastly outnumbered a few hundred rallygoers at an event outside the Capitol on Saturday to support those arrested on suspicion of participating in nonviolent crimes connected to the Jan. 6 riot. [Event organizer Matt Braynard] went to lengths to counter claims that the event was pro-rioter, with instructions begging attendees to be respectful to law enforcement.
    ...
    Unscalable fencing was set up again in anticipation of the rally. Around three dozen snowplow trucks [blocked road access]. Two squads of Capitol Police officers in riot gear walked up to the rally during the program to stand guard at the barrier behind the stage blocking access to the Capitol. A police helicopter flew overhead.
    ...
    Officials have arrested more than 500 people in connection to the Jan. 6 siege, hundreds of whom now face criminal charges. The conditions for those taken prisoner have been called into question. Many have been held in solitary confinement, [which] has drawn bipartisan criticism.
