Family from Borger Charged for Involvement in the Capitol Riots
When you think of family trips, what comes to mind? Going to the beach, eating out, visiting museums or zoos. For this family of 6 from Borger, these suggestions seemed too boring to waste time, gas, and money on. But if that's the case, what sounds better than a lousy, old trip to the beach? Well, obviously it would be to STORM THE CAPITAL.
On January 4th, the Munn family packed their bags and drove off to Washington to participate in the January 6th protests against the results of the 2020 election. When the protests transformed into riots, the family proceeded to break into the Capitol through a broken window hoping to find evidence of a rigged election. After walking the halls and entering several rooms around the Capitol, they could not find any evidence and eventually left. But not without consequences
Months after the chaos, the U.S. District Court of Columbia was able to trace the Munn family's involvement in the riots through posts made on their Facebook accounts. The parents, Thomas and Dawn Munn were sentenced to 14 days in prison, three months of house arrest, and three years of probation, their adult children, Kayli and Joshuwa Munn were put on probation, and the oldest, Kristi received probation and was been put on house arrest, while an unnamed youngest child who is a minor has not been charged.
Regardless of political beliefs, and opinions over what happened on July 6th, it can be agreed that this family could have planned this trip a little better. So remember, even if there are no better options, breaking into the Capitol may not be the best idea for a family vacation.
