Ethan Nordean

Nordean attended the event with friends who are part of a fraternal organization known as the Proud Boys. He was near the front of the police line next to others who eventually broke through an exterior window. He entered the building with the crowd.

Afterward, he made comments on social media reflecting how police were “part of the problem” on Jan. 6th. He shows pictures of them spraying citizens outdoors, with a caption characterizing them as “honorable oath breakers.”

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