Jan 6 Detainees Carried Out of DC Jail on Stretchers After Assault By Guards

According to a court filing, several of the Jan 6 detainees were carried out of the DC jail on stretchers on Thursday. The incident began when Kelly Meggs, one of the Jan 6 defendants, refused to wear a mask.

The guards responded by using pepper spray or some other chemical spray in the enclosed area on one of the Jan 6 detainees. The pepper spray disseminated through the entire pod, affecting the inmates and creating a disturbance that caused the prison to be locked down at around 10 a.m.

Note: If you’re wearing a mask and pepper spray is deployed, you could easily choke to death.

“They sprayed mace or some type of gas at an inmate and kept missing so it went into an intake that fed into other cells and the lady with the key left because she didn’t like the gas, so the inmates in the cells who were being fed the gas from that intake were locked in for like 15 minutes while it was going into their rooms and they couldn’t see/breathe.” 

Court filing

At least three Jan 6 detainees were taken to the medical bays on a stretcher. The jail is under investigation for its deplorable conditions. Maybe they could take some time to train the guards on their use of pepper spray in an enclosed area while they’re at it. Or better yet, just fire them and get better ones.

Lamont Ruffin, the acting U.S. Marshal for Washington, told Quincy Booth, director of the D.C. Department of Corrections, in a letter that he personally went to the jail and saw “evidence of systemic failures.”

Prison guards routinely shut off water to cells as punishment and multiple cells had “large amounts of standing human sewage (urine and feces) in the toilets,” inspectors found. Additionally, guards were observed antagonizing detainees and hot meals were observed being served “cold and congealed.”

Jail officials were ordered to transfer around 400 detainees, or 36 percent of the inmates in the Central Treatment Facility, one of the facilities that makes up the D.C. Jail, to a prison in another state.

Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), after months of attempts, were able to tour the facilities last week. Greene said she witnessed terrible conditions, including Jan. 6 detainees receiving “very poor food” and “virtually no medical care.”

This is America under the Biden administration. What’s the next step? DC jail and its ‘banana republic’ charms for the unvaccinated?
