Erie Times E-Edition Article-FBI found Lego-constructed Capitol building in home of Pennsylvania riot suspect

“FBI found Lego-constructed Capitol building”

Legos! “Fully Constructed” (note the scare quotes). Worse than a floor plan from the ‘net or a brochure from the capitol lobby? Legos! Your child’s Legos are now an official tool of terrorism.

“Morss faces serious charges for taking shields from police officers”

Maybe if the officers asked nicely he would have given the shields back. The capitol police apparently need bodyguards.

“and leading the formation of a shield wall to overrun the police, according to the FBI.”

Was this before or after the capitol police opened the barricades and let the protesters in?

This article is so stupid you can tell the FIB wrote it. You can’t make this stuff up…wait a minute!

FBI found Lego-constructed Capitol building in home of Pennsylvania riot suspect

York Daily Record USA TODAY NETWORK – PENNSYLVANIA

When the FBI arrested a western Pennsylvania man for his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., they found a “fully constructed” Lego version of the U.S. Capitol at his home along with a guide to creating a militia, a recent court filing shows.

Robert Morss of Allegheny County “was part of a violent mob that engaged in one of the most intense and prolonged clashes between the rioters attempting to overrun (the) Capitol on Jan. 6 and the law enforcement charged with protecting it,” according to the filing, a motion from the federal government outlining why Morss should remain incarcerated until his trial.

During his arrest, the FBI found the Lego construction in his home and a “Step by Step to Create a Hometown Militia” in his car, according to the filing. It included notes to “Bring kit/body armor,” “Bring assault rifle,” and “4 magazines,” according to the court document.

Morss faces serious charges for taking shields from police officers and leading the formation of a shield wall to overrun the police, according to the FBI.

“The defendant repeatedly not only assisted that mob in this violent battle against law enforcement but also repeatedly led the attack,” the court filing states. A former Army Ranger, Morss arrived at the Capitol “armed and ready for violence,” wearing tactical equipment and goggles with a knife and scissors in his vest, according to the federal filing. An indictment after his arrest includes two counts of assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers; three counts of robbery of U.S. personal property; and one count each of civil disorder, disorderly conduct, obstruction of an official proceeding and act of violence inside the Capitol.

There have been 50 Pennsylvania residents arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, which followed a rally for then-President Donald Trump.
