‘See the Difference?’: 20-Year-Old Black Man Who Stormed Capitol Denied Bond While White Rioters Are Granted Release

A Black man who participated in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection was denied bond and will be held in jail until trial even as many white participants in the insurrection attempt have been granted release until their days in court.

Emanual Jackson, 20, who reportedly is homeless and mentally ill, will not be released from prison pending his trial. At the detention hearing in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Jackson was ordered held without bond pending trial. Jackson, who allegedly beat a group of Metropolitan and U.S. Capitol police officers with a metal baseball bat, turned himself in to authorities on Jan. 18.

He faces multiple charges, including assault on a federal law enforcement officer with a dangerous weapon; knowingly engaging in any acts of physical violence against any person or property in any restricted building or grounds; and knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.

The Maryland man was also captured on video surveillance footage making a fist and striking a Capitol officer. He was one of the first to enter the building.

When asked the day of the riot why he was there, Jackson replied, “Fighting for America. We’ve been taken over by globalists, by the Chinese. Fighting for America. I’m not here for Trump. I’m here for America.”

As the FBI continues to crack down on those who participated in the insurrection, many rioters have been granted release following their initial arrests.

On Twitter, some users pointed out that many white participants in the riot have been granted release.

Riley Williams, a 22-year-old white woman accused of stealing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s laptop from her office during the riot, was released pending trial to the custody of her mother last week.

Eric Munchel, who was infamously photographed inside the Capitol building holding zip-ties and dressed in tactical gear and military fatigues, has also been released on bond.

Aaron Mostofsky, a 34-year-old New York City man photographed sitting outside the Senate chamber holding a stick and riot shield, was released on bond.

    If he is homeless and mentally ill as the article suggested could that be a reason to detain him until trail? Just asking. If not he should be able to bond out like everyone else I suppose.

    i’m gonna bet if he wasn’t bonded out it is because of previous warrants, or because he went hands on. but let’s go ahead and call it racism

  4. Elizabeth says:

    It’s obvious why he’s being held. Please.

  5. Marc says:

    You’re comparing violence to people who literally just trespassed and stole some crap… He was denied bail because he’s prone to violence and, as you stated, mentally unstable. They were granted bail because they didn’t beat anyone with a metal bat. They are not the same, and it has nothing to do with their skin tone. Show me a white person that was granted bail after assaulting multiple cops with metal bat…. I’ll wait…

    Is is very clear the preferential treatment given. It is biased and standards need to be the same all across. Changes need to be made.

    Well you knew when you went there justices is not equal. Not long ago slavery was legal

    But he beat an officer with a metal bat. I’m all for equal treatment but your comparison is between his actions vs the white morons that didn’t attack officers with a weapon. We all know that America is predominantly racist and people of color usually get a great amount of mistreatment in the judicial system. However, we shouldn’t group all incidents as racially motivated due to our own bias. Each incident should be looked at with all the facts available before making a conclusion.

    STOP the racist garbage! The young black man is every bit as good as those white people. THIS IS WRONG and UNFAIR. This country needs a LOT of changes.
