On January 13th, a man who took part in the Capitol building storming allegedly killed himself.
The death was reported by his wife, who found his corpse after he had allegedly shot himself in the chest.
Christopher Stanton Georgia was already arrested and charged by police in connection with the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th.
Authorities have not yet commented on a reason why Georgia took his own life. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office told media that the cause of death was suicide. Georgia died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
Georgia’s wife called 911 to report that there was “blood everywhere.” He died in the basement of the family home. He was 53 years old.
After the Capitol riots, people tweeted at Georgia’s employer. He was from Alpharetta, Georgia.
According to his LinkedIn page, Georgia worked as a “Regional Portfolio Manager” for BB&T in Atlanta. He was there for more than three years.
The participants of the Capitol building storming are being heavily persecuted currently, and it is without precedent in recent American history.
“The lawless destruction of the U.S. Capitol building was an attack against one of our Nation’s greatest institutions,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin in a press release announcing charges against 13 other people. “My Office, along with our law enforcement partners at all levels, have been expeditiously working and leveraging every resource to identify, arrest, and begin prosecuting these individuals who took part in the brazen criminal acts at the U.S. Capitol. We are resolute in our commitment to holding accountable anyone responsible for these disgraceful criminal acts, and to anyone who might be considering engaging in or inciting violence in the coming weeks – know this: you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
“Today’s charges are just the beginning of the FBI’s ongoing efforts to hold those responsible for the criminal acts of violence and destruction that unfolded during the U.S. Capitol building breach on January 6th,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray of the other people charged. “To be clear, what took place that day was not First Amendment-protected activity, but rather an affront on our democracy. The FBI, along with our local, state and federal partners, is committed to ensuring that justice is served. We will continue to aggressively investigate each and every individual who chose to ignore the law and instead incite violence, destroy property, and injure others.”
According to documents from the Superior Court of DC, Georgia had been charged with attempting to ‘enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police.’
At around 7:15pm on January 6th, on the night of the riots, Georgia was reportedly among a group outside in violation of the District’s 6pm curfew that had been put in place earlier that day to stem the chaos wreaked by the pro-Trump mob.
When officers gave the group several warnings to disperse, Georgia and his group reportedly refused, according to the documents. They were then placed under arrest as a result.
Currently, the persecution of those that took part in the Capitol storming is continuing, with the individuals being doxed online, and even having authorities called on them by their own families.
It would also be interesting to consider what scrutiny this suicide will go under, and the answer to that is quite apparent: none at all.
One should imagine what would happen if an individual took a photograph of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s laptop, or stole it, and if he somehow turned up dead in suicide. There would be weeks and months of MSM reports on the matter, claiming it is a conspiracy and that he was murdered.
Christopher Stanton Georgia, however, stole Pelosi’s laptop and then subsequently allegedly killed himself, because he likely “couldn’t live with the guilt of attacking those fighting for good.”
