Breaking: Federal prosecutors charge Louis Capriotti, 45, of Chicago Heights with threatening violence at the presidential inauguration next week....
...U.S. Attorney's office says he left a voice mail for a NJ congressman on Dec 29 stating, "We will surround the [expletive] White House and we will kill any [expletive] Democrat that steps on the [expletive] lawn."
...If people "think that Joe Biden is going to put his hand on the Bible and walk into that [expletive] White House on January 20th, they’re sadly [expletive] mistaken.," his message allegedly said.

... Capriotti, who was arrested near his home this morning, is charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce. He is due in federal court in Chicago at 3:30 pm today, per US Attorney's office.

Another fine felony bond court session in which the judge cannot be heard, but everyone else can be. It's not nearly as useful. #Chicago
It's a mystery as to how everyone else can hear the judge on the stream, yet his audio cannot be heard on the YouTube feed. Doesn't the Zoom call just go onto YouTube directly? Apparently not.
...WOOT WOOT! @court_smallwood speaking up for YouTubeland.

And the judge's audio is fixed!
