New York Judge's Son Arrested For Taking Part In US Capitol Violence

CNN was first to report that the man in the sweatshirt was identified as Robert Keith Packer of Virginia.

One Virginia resident, who spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, described Packer as a long-time extremist who has had run-ins with the law.

Auschwitz was one the most notorious death camps run by Nazis during the Holocaust and World War II.

Young also boosted his plea for "empathy for the people who have been so manipulated and had their beliefs used as political weapons", criticizing social media for turning political issues into "psychological weapons and used to gather hatred in support of one side or the other".

Packer will be released from jail after federal prosecutors sought not to seek detention.

A charge of disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds was filed Tuesday in the District of Columbia against Andrew Williams.


It wasn't immediately clear if Packer had hired an attorney. But he did not identify who would represent him in the case.

A bearded white man wearing a long-sleeved "Camp Auschwitz" sweatshirt was among the most striking images snapped at last week's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, when mobs incited by outgoing President Donald Trump stormed the building in hopes of overturning President-elect Joe Biden's election victory.

Law enforcement has made a number of arrests in connection with the unrest at the Capitol, with numerous rioters having traveled from across the country to protest the electoral vote count that ultimately affirmed President-elect Joe Biden's victory. Two Capitol Police officers have been suspended for their actions during the violent attack carried out by Trump supporters, while the president now faces impeachment in the final days of his administration. Three other people died in what authorities said were medical emergencies.

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Christina Pullen said a second Virginia man, Douglas Allen Sweet, of Grimstead, was also arrested Wednesday for his alleged participation in the riot.

Sweet was charged along with five other people who police said were on the upper level of the United States Capitol Visitors Center, near the door to the House Atrium.

"The six individuals, like others in the larger crowd, willfully refused the order to leave", the complaint says.
