The FBI has already arrested several protesters who stormed into the Capitol last week, but the agency is still trying to identify more suspects. Detectives are getting help from internet sleuths who are putting names to faces and going public with the information.

Among those identified so far is a San Diego County employee. A spokesperson says they are aware that one of their employees was seen participating in a protest before the incident at the Capitol and they are looking into her actions. But can she be fired?

Across the country, several protestors have already lost their jobs. Paul Davis was fired from his position as an attorney at an insurance agency after posting a video to social media. Direct marketing company Navistar fired an employee after he was seen wearing a company badge in the Capitol. And Brad Rukstales was fired from his CEO position in Chicago, and later said he regretted his decisions that day.

But here in California, simply participating in a political rally cannot get you fired.

“California protects lawful behavior off the job,” says Orly Lobel, a Warren Distinguished Professor of Law at USD. She says California is one of the few states to protect off the job political activity. But she adds that protection does not extend to criminal activity and your employer doesn’t have to wait for the legal system to fire you. “The employer is not under an obligation, according to case law, to wait until two years from now to see a conviction.”

Not only are internet sleuths naming the DC protestors, they’re also outing their businesses. An Escondido coffee shop is feeling backlash over an Instagram post from its owner. David Chiddick posted a video he made outside the Lincoln Memorial, supporting the movement.

Chiddick’s business, Koffie, was instantly slammed with bad reviews on several internet websites, including one poster who asked, “Are you open for treason? Do fellow terrorists get discounts?”

Chiddick responded to the criticism this week with another post on Instagram, saying those who entered the Capitol should be prosecuted. He also addressed the attacks on his business saying, “We’ve received a tremendous amount of evil and hate. Personally toward our shop, to our employees, to our children.” Chiddick goes on to say he believes the hate shows he’s on the right side of the issue.

As for all the negative reviews businesses associated with last week’s events are getting, Lobel says people can post opinions online and there’s not much a business owner can do about it.

Capitol Riots

Man arrested near U.S. Capitol with gun and 500 rounds of ammunition

Published

A Virginia man was arrested Friday when he tried to enter a restricted area near the U.S. Capitol with unauthorized credentials, a loaded handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, according to police.

Wesley Allen Beeler of Front Royal, Virginia, was stopped by U.S. Capitol Police at about 6:30 p.m. Friday, according to a police report. He had driven up a security checkpoint at the intersection of E Street and North Capitol Street, about a half-mile from the Capitol building.

The arrest came at a time of high alert in Washington as it prepares for Wednesday’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Barriers have been erected, streets closed and thousands of police and National Guardsmen deployed after supporters of President Donald Trump overran the Capitol on Jan. 6, when lawmakers were meeting to officially recognize Biden’s win.

While one officer was checking Beeler’s credentials, another noticed that he had several “firearm related decals” on the rear windshield of his Ford F-150 pickup truck, according to a police affidavit filed in District of Columbia Superior Court on Saturday. One of the decals said “Assault Life” and had a picture of a rifle; a second decal said “If they come for your guns, Give ‘Em your bullets first.”

The officers asked Beeler, 31, if he was carrying any weapons, and he said he had a Glock pistol under the center armrest of his truck, according to the court documents. The police handcuffed Beeler and found the Glock 9 mm pistol — with a loaded 17-round high capacity magazine — that had a bullet loaded into its firing chamber and the safety off.

They also found 509 9-mm rounds of hollow point and ball ammunition, as well as 21 shotgun shells. The shotgun shells and the pistol were both described in the police affidavit as having been in plain sight.

Adgie O’Bryant Jr., a Washington-based attorney, was appointed to represent Beeler. A recording at O’Bryant’s office said he’s out of the office until May 21.

Efforts to reach Beeler were unsuccessful. However, his mother, Charlotte Beeler, said in a telephone interview with that her son carries a weapon for his job as a security officer, his occupation for many years. Ms. Beeler also said that she hadn’t been in contact with him since Friday, when he had been headed to work.

She also said that her son had recently risked his life to protect people while working as a guard.

Beeler was charged with possessing a hand gun that wasn’t registered in the District of Columbia, as well as having unregistered ammunition, according to the affidavit filed by police.

The court filing also said that the inauguration credentials that Beeler presented “were not authorized to enter the restricted area.” Capitol Police spokeswoman, Eva Malecki, said in an email that he presented a “non-government-issued credential.”

A D.C. Superior Court judge on Saturday released Beeler on personal recognizance and ordered him not to return to the city except to appear in court or meet with his lawyer, according to The Washington Post.
