Thompson was captured on video assaulting law enforcement with a baton at one of the entrances to the U.S. Capitol.For several minutes, Thompson and others were forcibly trying to make entry through the officers. Inside the doorway area, others in the group in the tunnel with Thomson: (1) yelled obscenities and called the officers “traitors” as they forcibly tried to gain entry past the officers who were blocking the entrance to the U.S. Capitol; (2) yelled regularly for volunteers to continue the assault on the officers by yelling to the crowd “we need more fresh bodies” and “we need more patriots;”
Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
