The investigation into the January 6th riot is moving along brick by brick, literally. The authorities recently picked up someone in connection with the riot and while arresting the individual they confiscated his Lego set of the Capital building. Yes really.
From The New York Post:
The FBI is building its case against an alleged leader of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot one Lego brick at a time.
Investigators seized a “fully constructed US Capitol Lego set” from Robert Morss, 27, along with a notebook containing instructions on how to create a “hometown militia,” court records published by the Smoking Gun revealed.
The suspect allegedly led rioters in “one of the most intense and prolonged clashes” against law enforcement officials trying to contain throngs of rioters, according to the outlet.
Morss was wearing tactical gear and a “MAGA” hat as he led other President Donald Trump supporters who were trying to breach the Capitol’s Lower West Terrace, at one point ripping a riot shield from a Metropolitan Police Department officer, prosecutors alleged in court documents cited in the article.
Take man’s liberty away, but his Lego set? This is ridiculous.
