ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Federal court documents are shedding more light on statements made by former Rocky Mount police officers Jacob Fracker and Thomas Robertson in the aftermath of the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
The affidavit in support of an application for a search warrant describes Fracker as wearing a gas mask inside the U.S. Capitol building and says Fracker sent a video to a Facebook friend in which Fracker said, “[Expletive] was wild lol I ________ in Nancy P’s toilet.”
The statement appears to reference House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
In another video, the document describes Fracker as saying “Felt so good to be back in the [expletive] hahaha I was like 8th person inside the building, [expletive] was [expletive] LIT”.
Robertson previously told WFXR News that neither he nor Fracker did anything illegal.
The document makes mention of Robertson’s statements, saying, “It has also been reported that Robertson stated that he broke no laws, did not know about the violence, and that he had been escorted ‘in’ by the Capitol Police. Robertson made these claims notwithstanding his previous posts that he had ‘attacked the government’ and ‘took the [expletive] Capitol.'”
The document indicates on Jan. 8, Robertson commented on a post, “The picture of Senators cowering on the floor with genuine fear on their faces is the most American thing I have seen in my life.”
Again, on Jan. 8, the document states Robertson commented in part, “The next revolution started in DC 1/6/21. The only voice these people will now listen to is VIOLENCE. So, respectfully. Buckle armor or just stay at home”.
Then, on Jan. 11, the document says Robertson posted an image with the words, “By bullet or ballot restoration of the republic is coming.”
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Feb. 2. Both men are facing federal misdemeanor charges.
WFXR News reached out to the attorney listed for Fracker, but did not hear back. Robertson could not be immediately reached for comment.
