No, they just got caught up in the moment and murdered a police officer! Boys will be boys! And who doesn’t carry around a handful of cuff ties at all times? I know I often just randomly call for the outright murder of public officials! And who knows how all those pipe bombs got there? Not me! Nothing to see here!
The utter moral bankruptcy required to describe a planned domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol, Congress, the Vice President and the results of a democratic election, incited by the President and assorted cronies and family, as “people caught up in the moment” is indeed breathtaking.
