New bodycam footage shows Okaloosa County, FL Deputy Jesse Hernandez declaring "shots fired!" and "I'm hit!" and shooting at the handcuffed, unarmed suspect inside of his police car.

He had not been shot, rather, it was determined that he heard an acorn drop onto the car. Sgt Beth Roberts responded quickly to Deputy Hernandez erroneously calling "shots fired" in response to an acorn dropping from a tree.

"Where? Right there?" Roberts asked before also firing at the handcuffed, unarmed man in their car.

Luckily, both cops missed every shot.

VIDEO THREAD: White nationalist group Patriot Front showed up at the annual March for Life in Washington DC today.

They handed out flyers while standing at the back of the rally.

"There are a lot of people here who like us," their leader Thomas Rousseau told media.

Rousseau said he's here for "the American people, the American ethnicity which has descended from the European race who conquered and settled this land."

"Our decline in the form of government has been exactly correlated with the decline of the interest of the American people in government itself." 2) I asked Thomas Rousseau how he responds to conservatives who believe Patriot Front is a federal op.

"Liberals want us to be real, and we are," he explains, while "conservatives want to say that we're fake because its convenient so they don't get the guilt by association."

VIDEO THREAD: Senator Ron Johnson spoke last night in the Capitol at the premiere of the film The Real Story of January 6: Part 2 - The Long Road Home by conservative outlet The Epoch Times.

"The First Amendment is so applicable to January 6," Johnson said, but "to the victor go the spoils. The victor writes the history, and unfortunately, in November 2020, Democrats had the full sweep. They had all the levers of power, and they wrote the history of January 6."

For example, he disputes the phrase "armed insurrection" to describe the day's events. 2) Senator Ron Johnson reiterated that "I was never afraid on January 6."

"I knew who most of those people in the crowd were, not personally," he says. "The people I saw attending Trump rallies and I knew the vast majority of people that came to January 6 were patriots."

"They fervently love this country. They respect law enforcement. They would never even contemplate committing a crime or engaging in acts of violence. The vast majority of people that came on January 6 fitted that profile."

He also cited the role of preachers in the American revolution.

VIDEO THREAD: Armed "Boogaloo Boys" led by Mike Dunn rallied tonight at the Thomas Calhoun Walker Education Center in Gloucester County, VA, where last month four men carried handguns to the local school board meeting and were subsequently arrested by the sheriff's department.

Police did not interfere or even show up tonight.

"To the officers that are watching this, you violated the Constitution of the United States. Some day you will answer for these violations, if not before man, you will answer to it before God," Mike Dunn says at his first rally in over two years.

"You disgust us. You are not our brothers," he tells police. "You have no right to fly our flag. You have no right to be an American. You are tories, redcoats, and not patriots." 2) In addition to risking the same felony charges faced by their friends for carrying firearms at the school board, the Boogaloos held an armed prayer ceremony to criticize the Virginia law (in some cases) making it a misdemeanor to carry a firearm in a house of worship.

VIDEO THREAD: Following a two-year hiatus from street activism and two trips to Ukraine, former Boogaloo movement figure Mike Dunn is planning an armed rally tomorrow against the Gloucester, Virginia Sheriff's Department.

He spoke to myself and an NBC documentary crew about his planned return to activism tomorrow while at an Italian restaurant.

Dunn describes his group "is gonna deliver a warning to that sheriff, to his office, and to anybody who wishes to support him and his jack-booted thugs that he employs" over a recent incident where four people were arrested for carrying firearms to a school board meeting.

"Breaching the constitution will not be tolerated," he told the NBC crew and I. 2) If cops try to arrest Mike Dunn & his crew, he tells NBC crew & me: "we will defend ourselves in the way that the 2nd Amendment intended for us to do."

"What does that mean?" I asked.

Mike: "Don't Antifa me now and be like 'are you going to kill police?'"

Me: "Are you?"

Mike: "We will defend ourselves to any means necessary to pretend any of my boys, my brothers, constitutional citizens, being arrested."

The Feds are seeking 33 years in prison for Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio (who was not physically at January 6) and Joe Biggs (the highest-ranking Proud Boy on the ground at the Capitol.)

They previously sought 25 years for Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes, who got 18. Image 2) In the government’s argument for the Proud Boys to get between 20 and 33 years in prison each, they include a request to treat the charges as crimes of terrorism.

They say this was done to keep then-President Trump in power.…
