Outside a federal courthouse on Friday, September 9, 2021, Nicholas DeCarlo and Nicholas Ochs, the two men who stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, posed for a photo after destroying a door with a magic marker on it read: “Murder of the Media,” pleaded guilty to her crimes. Nicholas Ochs and Nicholas DeCarlo were charged with assault and wanton destruction of government property.
The two boys are reportedly responsible for launching the social media channel called Murder the Media, where they often stream live movies on the site.
Two people working for a social media channel have been arrested and accused of interfering with the process of confirming electoral votes in the Capitol. They are accused of interrupting the process.
Nicholas DeCarlo and Nicholas Ochs have been charged with obstructing an official trial being held at the Capitol, according to a statement released Friday by the District Attorney for the District of Columbia.
This is what the statement said:
“Today two men — one of whom was the man who founded the Proud Boys’ Hawaii chapter — pleaded guilty to a felony charge for their actions during the January 6, 2021 burglary of the United States Capitol. One of those guys was the founder of the Hawaiian branch of the Proud Boys. Because of their actions and the actions of others, a joint session of Congress called to determine and count the electoral votes for the presidential election was disrupted.
Before attempting to attack the Capitol, the Proud Boy leader and his comrade went to a speech by Trump at a rally
On January 5, 2021, 36-year-old Nicholas Ochs, founder of the Hawaii chapter of the Proud Boys, a right-wing faction widely viewed as a hate organization, arrived in Washington from Honolulu. The Proud Boys are a right-wing faction that is widely perceived as a hate group. He was reportedly staying with Nicholas DeCarlo, a 32-year-old fellow Texas resident who frequently streams his films live on social media channel Murder the Media. DeCarlo is known for his controversial videos.
The following day, the two conducted interviews with pro-Trump fanatics at a Trump rally and then followed them to the United States Capitol, according to the Los Angeles Times, according to reports.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times that took place a few days after the incident at the United States Capitol, DeCarlo explained that he was stopped by police before entering the Capitol, but was allowed to continue after claiming reporters too be.
During a phone conversation with a site representative, he made the following statement:
“One asked us when we were leaving and we replied that we will leave when we’re done reporting – when we have our news,” the reporter added.
On January 6, video showed two people throwing smoke bombs at a police line as police tried to block the crowd from entering the opening stage area.
On Twitter, a user named Twit-Creek recently reposted the video first shared by another user.
After throwing dangerous objects at police, Decarlo and Ochs illegally entered the building through the Senate wing doors and filmed themselves smoking cigarettes inside. They then posed for a photo while writing the name of their social media channel on a piece of paper.
The two people also searched a police officer’s duffel bag and removed a pair of plastic handcuffs inside.
Nicholas DeCarlo and Nicholas Ochs were arrested for their involvement in the January 6 violence on Capitol Hill
The two individuals were identified and taken into custody using the video, which was recorded on their social media channels and shared online.
The two unknowingly claimed responsibility for the violence in a video uploaded during the incident to gain more followers.
As a result of our attack on the Capitol, the vote in Congress was halted. We’ve been repeating ourselves all day: “We came here to stop the theft.”
On January 8, 2021, Ochs was taken into custody in Honolulu after being arrested the previous day. After his arrest, his Twitter account was blocked for security reasons. DeCarlo, on the other hand, didn’t stop speaking about his role in the riot until the day he was taken into custody in Burleson, Texas on Jan. 26, 2021.
They should receive their sentence on December 9, 2022, according to the authorities. They face a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison if found guilty. They have now pleaded guilty to the charges against her, following the announcement of Joshua Pruitt’s verdict in August 2022. Pruitt, a member of the Proud Boys who was inducted into the faction after storming Capitol Hill and destroying a vital sign in the building by throwing it across the room, was sentenced to four years in prison. Pruitt was sworn in as a member of the Proud Boys after the incident.
