Charles Bradford Smith

Charles Bradford Smith and Marshall Neece communicated via Facebook prior to Jan.6th. Smith expressed concern about the riots in 2020. He encouraged Neece and others to travel to Washington to protect the city against rioters.

At the Capitol, Smith yelled for others in the crowd to force a door closed as police tried entering. He allegedly had a knife with him, as did others that day.

 

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
