Jon Schaeffer, the founding member of the well-known heavy metal band ‘Iced Earth’ has now been arrested after allegedly being photographed participating in the mob that stormed the Capitol building on January 6th.

Schaffer allegedly faces six difference charges. He was apprehended in Columbus, Indiana on Sunday.

As Fox News reports:

An Indiana heavy metal guitarist was arrested on Sunday in connection with the U.S. Capitol riot earlier this month, according to the FBI…

Multiple people had identified Schaffer as a man seen in a photograph at the Capitol, according to the Indianapolis Star.

An image of Schaffer was allegedly labeled as photograph #25 on an FBI poster seeking help to identify those who made unlawful entry into the building on Jan. 6.

He was photographed in a blue hooded sweatshirt under a tactical vest with a baseball cap that read: “Oath Keepers Lifetime Member,” according to a statement of facts posted on the Department of Justice (DOJ) website.

All (everyone who entered the Capitol of the U.S.A of America) must face the consequences of their personal choice and actions depending on the # and the severity of their lawless actions. So be it

The FBI didn’t lift a finger last summer during the 6 month long siege, burning and looting and firebombing the Hatfield Federal Bldg in Portland.Arson and looting in Minneapolis. Nobody arrested because liberal Democrats told them to stand down. Those criminals still roam the streets. The FBI has become a tool of the Dem party. That’s why I no longer have respect for them.

Summer riots? They are still going on in Portland and are CONTIUOUS. They NEVER stopped once they started. It has been well over a year. Now they have graduated to nightly shootings. Starting to look like Chicago there.

Do you mean like the rioter- looters who Kamala lead group paid there bail and were released and charges dropped!
How about the fact that 75 million votes were stolen by the fraudulent elected Biden! The censoring of conservative voices?
There is no longer justice in America! Just a “word”. We now have something in common with third world countries and Authoritarian Government.

Yup. This is straight out of the Marxist playbook. And it is working. Covid was the perfect excuse to eliminate freedoms, Trump was used as the catalyst to agitate liberals and the storming of the Capitol used to justify the suppression of speech.

Wonder what the Boston tea party was about. No riots there. Some people said there was a mob.

Big fan of this guy and his band. He is a true patriot and has been for a long time. The media will mock the fact he is involved with heavy metal and cast him as a violent rioter worse than an Antifan or BLMer, but this guy stands for our Constitution and can’t stand to see what is happening to our country. He did what he felt was right full well knowing the consequences, and he actually wrote a song called Consequences years back.
This is not some punk rocker just looking to cause anarchy for publicity sake. This is a guy willing to swing back at our country becoming a clown show banana republic run by an insane media circus. Keep that in mind before letting the axiom “Heavy Metal” or rocker persuade your opinion.

After months of riots and burning billions on private companies, the FBI and the DOJ decide Capitol are worth to pursuit the others are just an idea.Because Antifa and BLM are run, fund and their members are registered dems.
“But this is going to be much bigger than just one account and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, and this week, and the next few weeks and go beyond the inauguration. We have to expect that, and we have to be ready for that.” Jack Dorsey Twit
Twitter and Facebook ARE NOT Private companies they have gone PUBLIC as they are publicly traded.
Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador, is also mounting an International Campaign Taking On Tech Companies After Trump Bans. All this “Conservative” sites should disconnect from Twitter and facebook use something else why anyone is sharing to FB or Twitter they are banning every conservative. Twitter down 15% from $52 to $45, from last week to today, make sure everyone keeps telling everyone else to help this is the war we are fighting.. This is the next path forward, first Blocksite twitter and facebook from your internet provider, the state of Idaho internet provider blocked them both, in North Dakota banned users can sue Twitter and Facebook. Use Ramble, GaB instead. Tech bubble is imminent, close twitter, FB, Instagram accounts, dump their stock if own any from your IRA, 401K check your mutual funds that have Twitter or FB included, Twitter down again, dump before they go to zero, stop buying from Amazon, NO more made in the CCP purchases, buy direct from the mom’s and pop’s stores near you, made in America only, don’t wait DO IT TODAY.

Another Famous person I never heard of; by the way, don’t care who he is or who he thinks he is, he should go to jail just like anyone else. Of course, we must first determine if we are going to use the Real Law or the Law that the Democrats used during the “Summer of Love” in Seattle. Which of course means that there is No Bail Required and NO Charges are filed, as long as you promise to be good and never do these things again, or at least until the next Democratic/Leftist/Liberal/Socialist incited Riot, Sorry I mean Protest.

I don’t understand how entering any building through an open door is breaking and entering.
