In March of this year, a retired Air Force officer was sentenced to two years in prison for his role in the J6 protest. He was found guilty in November of 2022 in a bench trial after waiving his right to a jury trial. There were six counts in his indictment, including obstruction of an official proceeding. The obstruction charge is a felony; the other five counts are misdemeanors.
Mr. Brock lost his pilot’s license. He was fired from his job. When he tried starting his own business doing home inspections, the State of Texas also revoked that license. Then he reported to prison.
He was calling his parents every day. Then, on July 24, the calls stopped. Word has come down that he was transferred to a Supermax prison. Supermax prisons rely heavily on intensive (and long-term) solitary confinement, with prisoners being held in solitary confinement 23 hours a day, which is used to isolate and punish prisoners. Communication with outsiders is minimal to none, with the prisoners only receiving one phone call per month, if that. Once transferred to a supermax prison, incarcerated individuals tend to stay there indefinitely. Correctional officers have ample authority to punish and manage incarcerated individuals, without outside review or prisoner grievance systems.
It is likely that Mr. Brock is being tortured because he dared to protest the new order. He is a political prisoner- a POW, if you will.
Welcome to the American gulag. Mr. Brock is vzyali.
