Capitol rioters’ tears, remorse don’t spare them from jail

Judges are hearing tearful expressions of remorse — and a litany of excuses — from rioters paying a price for joining the January 6 insurrection, even as others try to play down the deadly attack on the US Capitol. So far, 71 people have been sentenced for riot-related crimes. They include a company CEO, an architect, a retired Air Force colonel, a gym owner, a former Houston police officer and a student.
