A decorated US Marine Veteran, 20 Year NYPD Police Officer, Husband and Father of 3 will turn himself in tomorrow to serve the longest sentence that a Judge has handed to a J6 Defendant to date – 10 Years!
Please see the never-before-seen and heartbreaking video below that proves Marine Thomas Webster’s innocence and exculpatory footage of a DC Metro Police Officer provoking him and punching him straight in the face before they wrestle to the ground.
The exculpatory video clips containing in the video above of the officer punching Webster was not handed over to Webster’s attorney until just one week before trial and has been withheld from the public entirely.
The video shows an indignant Webster walk up to the police line and verbally challenge the Metro DC Police after the crowd was attacked with smoke grenades, tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, and people literally being thrown to the ground in the minutes before he reached the gate. An indignant Webster wanted answers, but instead got decked with a loaded left hook by DC Metro Police Officer Noah Rathbun, who had antagonized him with hand gestures seconds earlier and seemed to be challenging him to a fight.
A shocked Webster’s Marine Corps flag drops from his hands and the aggressive officer crossed over the gate to reengage with Webster, who waved him to stay away. The officer still comes forward and grabbed Webster’s flag pole. Webster sensed danger and says he reacted in self defense. The men wrestle to the ground. The office rammed the flag pole twice into the side of Webster’s mouth. Webster admits he grabbed at he officer’s gas mask, but did not strike him, although he could have if he wanted.
