They aren't so confident now

The world was shocked after the act of 'domestic terrorism' happened in Capitol Hill when thousands of rioters attacked the U.S. Capitol building in support of Trump on January 6th. The rioters armed with “Make America Great Again” caps, military-style gear, flags, and, allegedly, zip-tie restraints breached barricades, smashed windows, and ransacked the Capitol building.

But now the rioters are being identified and arrested, there is a meme trend of “How it started Vs. How it’s going” on social media where people are sharing side-by-side images of Trump supporters during the Capitol ordeal versus their mugshots.

The hunt to identify and arrest the rioters has brought some successful results

The Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol, leading to five fatalities, will not remain unpunished. According to the US attorney for the District of Columbia, Michael Sherwin, “hundreds of people may ultimately face charges” related to the riots.

Others pointed out that rioters employed a ‘shave disguise’ method, which shows how 'genius' they are

There’s likely to be “a wide array of criminal charges, ranging from destruction of federal property to murder.” The police is also expecting to find evidence of coordination among the rioters, which is evident from their shave disguise.

Most of them appear to be anti-maskers, which could be a better disguise

Simply putting on an obligatory face mask in times of pandemic would have helped not to be identified, but the rioters were too cool for that.

People are hoping for maximum punishment for this crime

Sherwin named the Capitol events “unprecedented.” “I don’t think we’ve ever seen a ‘crime scene’ with such a diversity of charges, with such a large group of individuals on such a large grounds, in such egregious conduct,” he said.

Trump won't be here to save them now

Philip Lewis, a senior front page editor at HuffPost says, “The president that you’re willing to ruin your lives for couldn’t care less about what happens to you.”

People are expressing their joy and satisfaction on seeing the rioters being captured through tweets and memes, and hoping that justice gets served to them.
