Political prisoner, Chris Worrell, who has been held for 166 days, despite never entering the Capitol Building, while antifa and BLM burned down large sections of cities across America never even stand trial. Worrell made several videos on January 6th and in those videos he can be heard trying to calm the crowd down. Because of the violent nature of antifa, he wore a protective vest and he carried a small legal container of pepper spray.
Worrell claims that he did shoot pepper spray at people he took to be members of antifa trying to push their way towards the Capitol. The federal government admits they do not know where he sprayed and they have no one that filed a complaint against him. He suffers from cancer and the jailers have denied him his cancer medicine for 166 days. That could very well lead to his death. In fact, just being cooped up as he is could lead to his death.
His doctor, Dr. Bino Rucker, M.D., signed an affidavit that was included in an earlier motion saying that:
“[c]ontinuing confinement at the federal detention center presents a substantial risk of serious infection to Mr. Worrell and his transfer to home confinement would significantly decrease the risk to his health in connection with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”
The jail has been denying Worrell the medications prescribed by Dr. Rucker.
“Mr. Worrell has suffered aggravating symptoms of his cancer, including lymphomas of the skin on his face. The lesions are often itchy, scaly, and red to purple – appearing in different parts of the skin and increase Mr. Worrell’s COVID infection risk,” the motion says.
Worrell had travelled to DC with his girlfriend on January 6 to hear then-President Donald Trump speak and exercise their right to freely protest the 2020 presidential election.
Due to the violence from the left that has been inflicted upon Trump supporters in public since 2016, Worrell wore a protective vest lined with plastic and legally carried a small bottle of pepper spray for protection.
Following the Stop the Steal rally, Worrell followed the crowd of thousands of people to Capitol Hill to protest. The situation was peaceful at first, but escalated when people began to push against the police barriers to get into the Capitol building.
In videos he recorded on the scene, Worrell can repeatedly be heard calling for peace. One of the clips from his phone captures him telling an officer that he was “not coming through,” when he accidentally bumped into a barricade trying to back away from the situation.
