Proud Boy Marc Bru sent to prison tells court he’d storm Capitol again

January 26, 2024

“You can give me a hundred years and I’d do it all over again,” he was quoted as telling a federal judge. Bru was accused of verbally attacking U.S. Capitol police officers over several hours, then joining a skirmish between law enforcement and Trump loyalists in which he was pepper sprayed. “In under 10 minutes, Bru made his way through the Rotunda, up the Gallery Stairs, and to the Senate Gallery,” prosecutors said. “While standing in the Senate Gallery, Bru took several selfies with the empty Senate Floor in the background—the floor from which, just twenty minutes prior, Secret Service agents had evacuated the Vice President, his family, Senators, and their staffs. In one of the selfies, Bru flashed a hand sign associated with the Proud Boys.”D.C. District Chief Judge James Boasberg was firm with the defendant, who appeared to have learned nothing from his experience.
