Jan. 6 Prisoner Goes On Hunger Strike, Demands Capitol Police Be Investigated

(Patriot Insider) – While the U.S. House Select Committee is currently in preparation to make its primetime debut concerning the “investigation” into the Capitol riots on Jan. 6, 2021, there is a desperate prisoner who is going on a hunger strike, demanding that a real investigation into the Capitol Police and other aspects of the events that transpired that day are completed.

Edward Jacob Lang (pictured here), who goes by the name “Jake,” has put out a statement from his cell in what many individuals call the “D.C.’s Gitmo,” saying he will go on a prolonged “hunger strike” until his demands are met.

According to BizPacReview, the letter was originally received and then published by the Gateway Pundit, a blog that has proven itself to be a strong ally to all of the individuals who have been imprisoned for alleged involvement in the riot at the Capitol, most of whom have been housed in horrific conditions, denied due process, and forgotten by the propaganda creators in the liberal media.

“Hello my fellow patriots, it’s Jake Lange — the time has come to draw a line in the sand, to say enough is enough,” the letter starts off.

“I am currently in the basement of the DC Jail, the ‘hole,’ where my phone account and tablet has been cut off, leaving me with absolutely no access to my family or my attorney, as well has [sic] no visitations because of COVID,” Lange says. “Completely silenced and cutoff to the outside world before being found guilty of any crime.”

“The alleged crime? Standing up with 1 million+ other unarmed American patriots against tyranny; defending women and the elderly, my life, my country, my Constitution and even saving a life on January 6th!” Lang goes on to write.

“Lang, 26, was indicted on multiple felony charges alleging that he fought with Capitol police for nearly two and a half hours,” the BPR report says.

According to a report published by GP back in Dec. 2021, “Lang was trampled when Capitol Police attacked and then without warning pushed Trump supporters down the stairs outside the US Capitol in Washington DC.”

Lang actually witnessed two individuals get trampled, one of those people, Roseanne Boyland, passed away after losing consciousness in the crush, just before he was able to pull himself and another protester, Philip Anderson, to safety. Lang is credited with saving the man’s life.

“I can no longer in good conscious, with my faith in the Most High God, identify or have any part with the defacto Federal Government, and their corrupt Departments of Justice and Corrections,” Lang goes on to say in his letter.

“Monday, (1/31/22) I am entering a prolonged hunger strike of 23+ days until my next court date on Wednesday, February 23rd, where there will be a large peaceful protest and press conference by my lawyer Steven Metcalf outside DC Federal District Court House at 2:30pm, followed by a press conference at 3:45pm,” he said, adding, “Media and patriots will be present in strong numbers.”

He then lists four demands, saying “I will not eat until these demands are met:”

1. A thorough Bipartisan Congressional investigation into the Jan 6th Capitol Police brutality and murders of Ashli Babbit and Roseanne Boyland.

2. The immediate release of ALL January 6th detainees with no prior violent criminal history.

3. Equal Treatment Under the Law/similar lenient wrist slap sentences as 2020 BLM and ANTIFA rioters.

4. Constitutionally protected right of redress of January 6th 2021 grievances, the obvious and overwhelming Will of The People being heard and obeyed: to send back the 2020 Presidential Election vote counting to the State legislatures for a recount.

“I will try to release statements daily, whenever I can get a friend to help me — including updates on my health, lists of the egregious human rights violations I have suffered at the hand of the DC jail; and details of the gross indifference shown by the DOJ to these human rights violations, and the OBVIOUS selective, politically motivated, prosecution and illegal prolonged solitary confinement/detainment,” wrote Lang, going on to add that updates and more information will be available on the website J6Truth.org.

“I would be eternally grateful for your prayers and support on getting this hunger strike with its list of demands and my daily updates as much media attention as possible — culminating on the February 23rd court date and peaceful protest,” he added.

“On February 23rd, in court, my lawyer Steve Metcalf and I will be submitting some groundbreaking documents and Declarations that will most certainly shift the momentum and the perspective of all January 6th court cases,” he said, asking fellow patriots to please show up for the date.

“I need your help!” Lang wrote. “Americans need your help! 750 January 6ers need your help! United We Stand under God.”

Lang has actually been incarcerated since January 16, 2021. He has endured more than 200 days in solitary confinement.

Lang has been offered a plea deal for his alleged involvement in the Capitol riot that would keep him locked up in prison for nine years.
