Escambia County Man Arrested On Charges Related To U.S. Capitol Attack

January 20, 2021

An Escambia County man has been arrested for his alleged role in mob attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Jesus D. Rivera, 37, was taken into custody at his residence Wednesday morning for his alleged role in the riot and siege at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, according to the Jacksonville Field Office of the FBI.

Rivera is charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; knowingly, with intent to impede government business or official functions, engaging in disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds; engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct on Capitol buildings or grounds; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in the Capitol buildings.

According to federal court documents, Rivera uploaded to his Facebook account a five minute video showing a crowd of individuals in the U.S. Capitol crypt. Approximately 13 seconds into the video, Rivera changed the direction
of the camera toward the individual recording the video and Rivera’s face is clearly visible. The video ends with the individual recording the footage, Rivera, beginning to climb out of a window.

Rivera uploaded two other videos to Facebook that allegedly show Rivera approaching the U.S. Capitol and then on the U.S. Capitol grounds surrounded by individuals demonstrating or protesting. In the videos, Rivera states, “record numbers here in DC.”. Rivera late states, “hey guys, if you are on here, share this live because I am about to take my ass to the middle of the state Capitol and see what’s going on, where they are trying to jump in.”

Rivera’s Facebook account has since been deleted.

    I am so fed up with Republicans thinking to be a republican you have to be part of some crazy CULT. You hate democrats, politicians, anyone who speaks the truth. You blame everything on ANTIFA and BLM which bunk. You might be listening to FOX and Newsmax way to much. Time to grow up and face reality. Republican party is just that, its not a religion, its not a cult, you don’t have to hate Democrats you don’t have to hate anyone.

    “Those who control the narrative, also determine truths and untruths”

    Or so they want you to think. Truth doesn’t depend on who tells it. Lies work best when the liar can limit who you talk to, get information from.

    Generally, liars don’t care if you find out the truth eventually — just so they get what they want first.

    “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun,” is the actual quote, but close enough. It works as long as you are willing to kill those who get in your way. Mao was. Stalin was. Hitler, of course, was. Trump? You’ll figure it out. Barr finally did.

    Hmmm, it occurs to me that the barrel is worthless without ammunition, at least minimal ability to aim, clear of obstructions, a recognizable target within range, no telling what I’m overlooking.

    Also interesting to remember that most of the some 45 million people Mao killed did not die by gun, but starvation created by poor government and his worshipers telling him what he demanded to hear rather than the truth.

    I am not mentioning obvious parallels here since it didn’t get quite that bad.

    Duke of wawbeek where did I say anything that was anti semetic? Not once did I say anything about Jews or the Jewish people!!!! You say violence isn’t the solution, tell that to the librals that embrace ANTIFA and BLM, they are the ones committing violence!!!! I don’t agree with what happened at the capital, but calling it insurrection is like chicken little screaming the sky is falling. Now, if you want to call what is happening in Washington state and Oregon insurrection, then I can agree.

    “David for truth”

    Those who control the narrative, also determine truths and untruths; or to such ends attempts to do so.

    “One man’s terrorist, is another man’s patriot.

    What about those terrorist who rose up against King George?”

    Which terrorists were those? After years of suffering abuses by the British government and with no representation in Parliament, the elected leaders of the British colonies laid out their case for becoming free States, nations of the world. They laid out the specifics of the abuses, not just rumors and baldfaced lies like President Trump’s many, many.

    They did not try to take over Parliament or terrorize their neighbors. (Although some individuals wrongly probably did.)

    There is a world of difference.

    One man’s terrorist, is another man’s patriot.

    What about those terrorist who rose up against King George?

    It all boils down to who can project the most force; as Chairman Mao said in his lil red book “Power comes out the barrel of a gun”.

    In all aspects, practical and impractical, it is probably time for America to diversify into several smaller nation and perhaps city states as well. Diversity is the solution; that’s what they say anyway?

    @William Lingo, did you notice that out-going loser was also conveniently absent? Sorry, I am a republican but stupid stuff coming out of peoples’ mouth is why I think we lost the Senate and White House

  8. LOL Joy on January 20th, 2021 8:44 pm

    You are talking about prejudice and you assume that everyone not wearing a mask is an “insurrectionist” or “one of them”? But you’re not prejudiced, are you?!!!
    Being that this man is not white, what exactly did you mean by “one of them”?
    See? Works both ways! Look in the mirror. And stop assuming.
    You appear very hateful and prejudiced yourself but I won’t just assume that you are.

  9. patd on January 20th, 2021 8:43 pm

    hunter biden was there,also 5 people lost their lives including a police officer being beat to death

  10. Duke of Wawbeek on January 20th, 2021 8:10 pm

    @William Lingo, your post is most insensitive and highly anti-Semitic.

    Violence is not the solution, tolerance is the prescription for what ails America.

  11. Big Escambia River Rats on January 20th, 2021 7:48 pm

    BLM gets a free pass regardless what they do. Meanwhile the Republican establishment sells out their base at the Capitol steps. I doubt few if any of those folks considered themselves Committing insurrection. Politicians=hypocrisy and won’t get my vote again in that they are all in cahoots with one another…And I’ve heard enough out of mainstream media outlets and their kool aid drinking fans in these parts to know we re under one party rule and maybe always have been. For those in Washington it’s not about OUR best interests, it’s about the SPECIAL INTERESTS.

    Be careful what you say William lingo. That sound like
    a threat. Someone maybe watching.

  13. Bob on January 20th, 2021 6:07 pm

    @William Lingo

    I’m going to clue you in on my secret guide on “How Not to Get Arrested for Committing an act of Domestic Terrorism”:

    1. Don’t commit an act of Domestic Terrorism.

    Hope that clears things up.

  14. Joy Bryant on January 20th, 2021 5:39 pm

    When you base everything on lies, prejudices, hate those if those are things you to do!!
    Every time I walk into a store and I see people with no mask I look at them and wonder if they’re one of them as well! Because it’s pure stupidity not to wear one! So until this country realizes that black white red yellow no matter what we’re all people we’re all human and we should all be wearing a mask we should all be going to what ever church or temple on mosque you believe in -?then you have ignorant idiot like this! We have the ability starting today to make this a better country -stop the hate and become America again! If you’re prejudiced shame shame on you

  15. J-THE-G on January 20th, 2021 5:11 pm

    I just don’t get why you would do the work to get in and stop there. I mean if your gonna seize the capital seize it viciously and make a statement. What happened one 1/06/20 was a complete waste of everyones time.

  16. Poor dems on January 20th, 2021 5:09 pm

    Lol! Lingo you are making the dems upset. Meanwhile, on the opposite end of the spectrum they don’t see any problem literally attacking innocent people to the point of being crippled for the rest of their lives or swarming random people’s HOMES who are wealthy for merely existing lol! But being in a restricted area, THAT is OUTRAGEOUSLY unacceptable! What a joke.

  17. Common Sense on January 20th, 2021 5:05 pm

    Mr. Lingo:

    1.) He was arrested by Federal authorities, I would presume FBI. He was not arrested by “Democrats”.

    2.) He broke the law. He even said that he’s just trying to see whats going on, otherwise known as a confession.

    3.) People already did “react” which is why they are getting arrested.

    4.) This has nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans. It is about breaking the law. Just because you agree with him does not make it any more legal.

    5. And finally I am sure if it were BLM storming the Capitol you would have the same ridiculous opinion and twisted logic…… maybe NOT!

  18. Wow on January 20th, 2021 2:57 pm

    This country is going downhill.

  19. Ben Q on January 20th, 2021 2:54 pm

    Wrong William Lingo,

    He had NO right to enter the Capital. Protesting is one thing but to enter a building unlawfully, just at face value is enough of committing the crime of trespassing. He had NO business to “see what’s going on”. If he would have stayed outside, there wouldn’t be a conversation right now.

    Gee, I’m just going to walk into your house to “see what’s going on”…Yeah, I don’t think that’s a good idea.

  20. Caraway on January 20th, 2021 2:49 pm

    @ William Lingo

    Did you even read the article? “The video ends with the individual recording the footage, Rivera, beginning to climb out of a window.”

    Also, Hunter attended the inauguration.

  21. Susan on January 20th, 2021 2:45 pm

    @William he was there on the channels I was watching. Maybe not on your Qanonsense site …..

  22. Oversight on January 20th, 2021 2:39 pm

    Dumb crook news. Nothing like posting video and pictures of yourself breaking the law. LOL!

  23. Alex on January 20th, 2021 2:38 pm

    LOL!!!! Lets brag about it on Facebook so I can look cool said noone ever lol. IM a bad boy all my friends are gonna like my post. Lol worlds dumbest criminal

  24. William Lingo on January 20th, 2021 2:25 pm

    REALLY? This man has been arrested for simply being there? He even said that he’s just trying to see whats going on, this is a with hunt and Democrats are going to force people to react if the keep this up. It’s really sad what’s happening in our country today!!

    On another note, did anyone else notice that Hunter Biden was conveniently absent from the inauguration today?
