This video is absolutely crushing. We are gutted and you will be, too. It is a video involving brave men who were involved in the largely peaceful protests that took place at the Capitol building back on January 6th. These protests have been portrayed in the wrong manner by the liberal media because it is a chance to make conservatives look bad.
We already knew how this was going to go. The liberal, far-left media makes sure that they are the ones who shape the current talking points. The rest of us are left to wonder if we will ever see a fair and even exchange of ideas ever again. The video that you are about to watch is particularly sad because a child is involved.
This little girl had to watch her father be arrested for peacefully protesting and she was just 3 years old at the time. Her father, Casey Cusick, and grandfather, 73-year-old Purple Heart veteran and pastor James Cusick, were each arrested. We hope that the police are happy. You’re really doing a bang-up job here, gentlemen.
None of these people who were arrested have been accused of any form of vandalism. Near as we can tell, there is absolutely no property damage that could be attributable to them. Right now, they are facing the following charges: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building; and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol Grounds.
These charges definitely seem excessive to us but what do we know? We could never be as wise as the police officers who allowed this protest to happen then tried to arrest people once it had already taken place. When Casey was arrested, the little girl was clearly confused as to why it would happen.
“Mommy? Why are they locking Daddy’s hands?” the child asks, as kindly as possible. The mere idea that her father would be in trouble for this is too much to wrap her mind around. Her grandfather was also arrested the next town over at the time. His daughter happened to be home at the time and she offered up this statement to our good friends over at the Gateway Pundit:
“This morning I saw a sheriff pull up in our driveway with his lights on and there was about four or five other cars with them,” James’ daughter Staci told the Gateway Pundit. “They came up to our front door and I told my dad to go answer it. As he started towards the door they started banging and banging and saying ‘open up we have a warrant.’ He opened the door and they asked him his name and to step outside.”
Staci says that she was also forced to head outside. Once she made her way outside, she saw the police putting her elderly father into handcuffs. We cannot begin to imagine what a harrowing experience this was for this family. It did not need to go down like this.
“They asked me my name and I told them I was his daughter Staci. They said they were not looking for me, but told me to put my hands on the back of the sheriff’s vehicle. My dad asked what it was about and they told him it was because he entered the Capitol building on January 6,” Staci continued. Why now, though? They left this daughter in tears and we are going to leave you with a powerful statement from her:
“My dad loves this country. He volunteered to go to Vietnam and fight. He served 16 months there proudly. He has taken so many kids on trips to Washington, DC, to let them see this great country. He’s very passionate about this nation. He’s a pastor and he holds the Constitution in a very high regard. He hates what is happening to this country, but he would never vandalize or harm any government property, or anything for that matter. He’s a very upstanding man and I was devastated to see him taken away.”
Hope you’re happy, liberals!
