Disrespect for democracy and former fellow officers results in a ten year prison sentence.
"A retired New York Police Department officer was sentenced on Thursday to 10 years in prison for attacking the U.S. Capitol and using a metal flagpole to assault a police officer trying to hold off a mob of Donald Trump supporters.
Thomas Webster's prison sentence is the longest so far among roughly 250 people who have been punished for their conduct during the Washington, D.C., riot on Jan. 6, 2021. The previous longest was shared by two other rioters, who were sentenced separately to seven years and three months in prison."
