NH Letter Carrier Who ‘Chugged’ Wine Amid Deadly Capitol Riot Says He Has No Regrets

A letter carrier from Keene NH talks about his trip to Washington this week, where he joined other pro-Trump rioters as they vandalized the US Capitol, and a police officer was beaten to death:

Jason Riddle, of Keene, New Hampshire, says he is a military veteran and a proud supporter of President Donald Trump.

Riddle said he never expected things to turn violent at the Capitol.

“They just broke into the building. I was in shock, I couldn’t believe it was happening,” Riddle said.

He took videos outside the Capitol Building and then, he said, followed the mob inside.

“They were smashing computers and printers and breaking things and throwing papers and lamps around,” Riddle said.

When asked why he decided to go inside, he responded, “I had to see it.”

And when asked if he had any regrets, he said, “no.”

Amid the mayhem, Riddle said, he found a liquor cabinet inside a lawmaker’s office, poured himself a glass of wine and watched it all unfold.

“And I chugged it and got out of there,” he said.

On Thursday, Riddle resigned from his position as a mail carrier at the U.S. Postal Service and announced that he’s running for Cheshire County Commissioner, which he’s done before, according to The Sentinel Source.

    Given that a Capitol police officer was tragically killed, can these people be charged with ‘vicarious liability’ as co-conspirators?
