During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is socially acceptable to wear a mask. In many jurisdictions, a facial covering is required. But the same delusions and conspiracy theories that caused Trump supporters to reject the outcome of the 2020 election resulted in many of the insurrections who stormed the U.S Capitol refusing to wear masks.
And now they're being identified.
Trump supporter Richard Barnett was recognized back home in Arkansas as the insurrectionist photographed with his feet on a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office.
Biggs was asked by 5 News if he feared being arrested.
"Am I scared? Hell no. But yeah, there's a possibility. I didn't do anything. I didn't breach the doors. I got shoved in. I didn't mean to be there. Hell. I was walking around looking for a bathroom," he argued.
But after being identified, he could be arrested.

The most interest case may be a Maryland man who not only did not wear a mask, but did wear his company work badge during the insurrection.
He was fired.
