First Person Sentenced For Capitol Riot is A Grandma of Five

Jun 24th

Hey, can somebody please come get their grandma and take her home? She's at the Capitol having too much fun and she's not supposed to be here...

Anna Morgan-Lloyd, 49, is a grandmother of five from Indiana and has become the first Capitol rioter to be sentenced.

Morgan-Lloyd pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years of probation, 40 hours of community service and charged a $500 fine.

Since the January 6 Capitol riot, we have been hearing politicians go over the horrors of that day.

Joe Biden described the event as "one of the darkest days in the history of our nation."

Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton even compared it to the terror of 9/11. And don't forget AOC, who is still suffering from PTSD from the Capitol attack.

After hearing these war-like stories, are you also a little disappointed in the first person sentenced?

She's someone's grandma… not some scary Neanderthal-warlord, wearing horns on his head, shirtless with blood running down his face. Nope. Just a grandma from Indiana who posed for a picture with a big smile.

Good job boys, you got her!

It seems like the media isn't quite sure which woman in the photo is actually Morgan-Lloyd though...

But NBC identified her as the woman in the American flag hoodie:

I guess suburban grandmas all look alike... either way, they both seem pretty nice TBH...

The day she once described as the "best day ever" didn't get her jail time but she now calls it a "disgraceful" day.

Before her sentencing, Morgan-Lloyd had a tearful apology.

"I went there to show support for President Trump peacefully, and I'm ashamed that it became a savage display of violence that day," Morgan-Lloyd said.

Maybe the next rioter they sentence will be an old man with a walking stick who couldn't figure out how to turn his camera around to take a selfie.
