Rocky Mount Police Officer Jacob Fracker has been charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Fracker got caught for taking the above selfie in front of the John Stark Statue in the Capitol Building during a mostly peaceful protest in support of Donald Trump on January 6th. The United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia is calling the protest a riot and are in the process of rounding up anyone that was on the capitol grounds that day.
In addition to his selfie, Fracker made statements on Facebook about being in the Capitol Building that day. We are uploading a screenshot as a PDF with this article. In one statement he said:
"Lol, to anyone who's possibly concerned about his picture of me going around... sorry I hate freedom? Sorry I fought hard for it and lost friend for it? not like I did anything illegal, WAY too much to lose to go there but, y'all do what you feel you need to lol. And a foot note: I can protest for what I believe in and still support your protest for what you believe in just saying...after all I fought for your right to do it.." - Jacob Fracker
It is evident from Fracker's Facebook page that he is a veteran of some middle eastern war. He appears to have been in either the Army or the Marine Corp. Also evident on his profile is the fact that he is originally from Seattle, Washington. According to public records Jacob Malone Fracker is a 29 year old resident of Penhook, Virginia with a handful of traffic violations on his record.
Also arrested was fellow officer Thomas Robertson. Both have been placed on paid administrative leave.
UPDATE: Fracker has pled guilty. We have updated the video with one about this development.
