January 6 Political Prisoner In DC’s Gitmo Witnesses Attempted Murder of Fellow Patriot By Correction Officer

Ronald Sandlin, a Jan. 6 political prisoner in Washington D.C reached out to the Gateway Pundit to tell his story. He was confined for 6 months for his alleged involvement on January 6th and was denied bond.

He was arrested on January 28th at the District of Nevada, 22 days after the setup happened.  His charges include: Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers; Civil Disorder; Obstruction of an Official Proceeding; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds; Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds; Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building; Impeding Passage Through the Capitol Grounds or Buildings; Act of Physical Violence in the Capitol Grounds or Buildings; Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building.

Like the other political prisoners, he was not charged with insurrection.

A status conference is set for this coming September 28 and a jury trial is set for December 6, 2021. 

Here is an excerpt from his email to the Gateway Pundit:

“My name is Ronald Sandlin and I’m a political prisoner in D.C.’s Gitmo because of my alleged involvement in the Jan 6th incident. I’m reaching out to you because you and your publication align with my values.

I’ve witnessed the aftermath of the correction officers nearly beating a man to death and I’ve also endured solitary confinement for 6 months. The prosecutor Jessica Arco said I should be denied bond because I’m a Mexican American and could “flea to Mexico” even though I have no ties to Mexico and don’t even speak Spanish.

I would like to have my voice heard not only about the truth of Jan 6th but about the awful conditions the 33 of the detained patriots have been facing. I’m willing and open to doing an interview. I also have a Give Send Go fundraiser where I’m raising money for my legal fees and expenses.” (As of this writing, we haven’t receive a response yet from Mr. Sandlin to schedule an interview.)

Sandlin mentioned on his GiveSendGo that he witnessed an attempted murder of a fellow Jan. 6er who was simply trying to organize a Bible study for fellow patriots.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported this incident where a guy named Ryan Samsel, was awakened by a correctional officer, his hands zip-tied, then walked to an unoccupied cell and was brutally beaten by the officer. Then Ryan Samsel lost an eye in the beating.

More from Sandlin’s GiveSendGo campaign:

Ronnie Sandlin a protestor at the mostly peaceful Jan 6th political rally has been languishing in solitary confinement for over 7 months. Ronnie has been threatened with physical violence was even thrown in “the hole” (a section of the jail reserved for violent prisoners) which he described as “sleeping in a disgusting truck stop bathroom” for simply questioning a correction officer.

Ronnie also witnessed the attempted murder of a fellow Jan 6er who was simply trying to organize a Bible study for fellow patriots. The correction officer yelled “I hate ya’ll white people and your honky religion” before zip tying his hands and then violently beating him nearly to death. This man is still suffering from a broken jaw, blindness, and brain damage. The corrupt D.C. jail claims this attack never happened and he injured himself. The warden has since been fired after that incident.

Ronnie was denied bond because the prosecutor Jessica Arco said that because Ronnie is a Mexican-American he should be denied bond because he could “flea to Mexico” Ronnie Is a full legal US citizen and has no ties to Mexico. Ronnie said this is the most racist thing he’s ever experienced which is ironic because the media and the FBI is trying to promulgate the false narrative that Jan 6ers are racists.

The prosecutor has offered Ronnie a 6 year plea deal for minor charges that his lawyer said he should only receive probation for if we weren’t dealing with a politically biased judicial system. This is following a year of Antifa and BLM terrorists looting, burning down cities, murdering and terrorizing communities around America only to have their charges dropped. This is also following the Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS hearing where left-wing protestors stormed the capitol and did what Jan 6ers did, yet were called “an important part of Democracy”.

Ronnie needs your help to fight tyranny and a corrupt DOJ. He will be using the funds for legal fees. Every dollar you give is a slap in the face to the CCP against the Marxist takeover of our country. If you can’t donate pray for Ronnie and his fellow patriots and share this with your loved ones.

Along with Ronald Sandlin and other political prisoners in DC, let us all help and pray for their safety and for their freedom.
