Virginia School Board Member Arrested On Capitol Riot Charges

Miles Adkins, a member of the Fredrick School District School Board in Virginia, has been arrested for his participation in the January 6th insurrection:

Miles Adkins, 40, of Frederick County, faces four misdemeanor charges in federal court.

The FBI says a picture shows Adkins inside the Capitol helping someone else climb in through a window.

The FBI’s criminal complaint includes an exchange of Facebook messages between Adkins and a friend with Adkins writing, “I’m getting food then fighting” and “I drank fireball and a coors lite in the capitol.” The friend replied, “You guys better go out with a bang” and “don’t let it be nothing.” Adkins replied with a racial slur and “you know this.”

The FBI says pictures show Adkins carrying a canned drink.

Even though Adkins states that he takes responsibility for what he is charged with, it’s clear that he doesn’t really mean that and quite probably is unclear on the concept of what is happening:

Adkins claims the Department of Justice targeted him because he’s a Republican and said he will not resign his position on the school board.

“I don’t put up with bullies in our school with our kids, so I’m not gonna be bullied out of this position, either,” he said.

Adkins admitted his latest arrest is a distraction but wouldn’t say how he plans to address the four federal charges he’s facing.

He doesn’t put up with bullies but he won’t resign because he’s been charged for being a bully on January 6, 2021. That’s some mighty fine cognitive dissonance right there, I tell you.
