Some notable headlines about various developments in various prosecutions related to Jan 6

Though a split DC Circuit ruling about obstruction charges received the most press attention, two addition headlines about sentencing developments in prosecutions related to Jan 6 also caught my eye this morning.  Here is a quick round-up of full headlines:

From NBC News, "Appeals court upholds 'obstruction' charge used against hundreds of Jan. 6 rioters, for now: A panel of appellate court judges upheld the use of the statute against Jan. 6 rioters, but the complex ruling means the issue likely isn't settled yet."

From Politico, "Prosecutors seek lengthiest Jan. 6 sentence yet for rioter who pinned officer in Capitol doorway: The sentence would be more than five years longer than the longest sentence handed down in any Jan. 6 case."

From Tampa Bay Times, "Ex-soldier with Jan. 6 ties gets 7 years prison in Tampa case: Jeremy Brown, a retired U.S. Army Special Forces master sergeant, was found guilty of having illegal weapons and a classified military document at his home."

Pin a cop to wall--throw book at him--shine green lasers into cop's eyes, dismiss charges. Yeah, great system
