Meet Elizabeth from Knoxville Tennessee who stormed the Capitol.

Treason doth never prosper, what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason.

Corollary: it's only a Revolution if you win. Otherwise it's Treason. Really. Not joking.

Worse, in the US, if someone was killed during the course of a crime, everyone involved in the commission of that crime is guilty of homicide. Even lookouts or getaway drivers who had no direct connection with the death. As icing on the cake, if the person who died was a law enforcement officer, all those involved are deemed "cop killers" and hunted without mercy. One Capitol policeman died from head injuries after one of the mob bashed him with a fire extinguisher.

This naive idiot is about to find out that in real life, actions have consequences. Legal ones.

 The crime of Treason in the US is very, very rarely charged. The bar is set very high. However, the Death Penalty is on the table if found guilty. I hope this child in a woman's body gets good legal representation, and that the prosecutor is not out for blood. Literally. If she's really unlucky, she'll  be tried as if she were Black.

All around the World reasonable people have been appalled by the recent events in the US ~ just as we try teach our children that actions have consequences, so do many Americans, even their President!
