One of the shocking scenes of the January 6th insurrection at the United States Capitol was insurgents in military kit who brought zip ties.

Despite a harrowing account by the federal prosecutor in one such case, a Texas judge allowed him to go home after being arraigned.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Weimer argued why retired Lt. Col. Larry Rendall Brock, Jr. should be detained.

"He means to take hostages. He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps try, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government,"

Weimer charged, as reported by the Associated Press.

But Texas Magistrate Judge Jeffrey L. Cureton released Brock to home confinement.
