CBS ‘Late Show’ Crew Arrested by Capitol Police

This must be some bad joke. The Capitol Police did not arrest insurrectionists but arrests a comedy show crew that permission to be on the premises. These people obviously have no sense of humor or sense of irony. What is the crime here? Don’t you realize how this leaves you open to criticism for showing a double standard? You can’t make the argument that the law is the law. They overstayed the right to be in the capitol building. But you didn’t arrested anyone on January 6th. It’s buffoonery:

Members of a production team for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” were arrested earlier this week by police as they filmed a comedy segment at the US Capitol, in an incident that was used by prominent right-wing voices to assail the probe into the January 6 insurrection.

US Capitol Police said in a Friday statement that at approximately 8:30 p.m. Thursday, officers “observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway” in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington.

“The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day,” the statement said.

Capitol Police said the individuals were charged with unlawful entry, adding that the matter is considered “an active criminal investigation” and that it “may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney.”

Residents In Queens NYCHA Building Sound Off Over Lack Of Hot Water And Pressure

It’s par for the course for New York public housing residents. And you can bet the big talking new mayor won’t do a damn thing to help these people. In fact, the City of New York is the biggest slumlord in the Big Apple:

Residents say it has been a problem for months — hot water and decent water pressure.

People living in a Queens public housing building are at their wit’s end and are demanding help, CBS2’s Thalia Perez reported Sunday.

…“It did receive federal dollars to bring in new boilers, but something is wrong, obviously. Because of NYCHA’s lack of investment in infrastructure challenges, obviously the system it’s just not working although they’re putting in boilers,” Richards said.

But in a statement a NYCHA spokeswoman said, “Carleton Manor residents do have hot water, and NYCHA staff have been working around the clock with outside vendors and experts to address the underlying water temperature and pressure issues.”

She also called the issue a “complex matter” and said it’s “the result of deteriorating and severely underfunded infrastructure.”

Many residents still say this isn’t the case and they don’t have hot water.
