January 6 protester Peter Schwartz begged for help from Americans in a letter he released to the public stating that his lawyers were not really fighting for him and alleging that D.C. police officers deliberately provoked the crowd into violence.
Schwartz is accused of pepper-spraying two police officers. They also say he “wielded a club.” He was arrested in February and has been in jail ever since and is being held without bond.
He claims he witnessed “the Capitol Police brutalizing women and elderly patriots,” and that they deliberately attempted to incite a riot.
Schwartz is currently in jail awaiting sentencing on a myriad of charges including assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers using a dangerous weapon; entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; and disorderly conduct.

He is a welder and also served in the Army Reserves.
Gateway Pundit published the letter from Schwartz so he could get his message out.
Schwartz began the long letter by describing what he is going through:
“I’m sitting on a cold, steel bunk right now; surrounded with the many letters I’ve recently received since the public learned how we’re being treated, and the jail started giving us our mail. Many of the letters are post-marked from as much as 4 months ago. Many are damaged and torn with no return addresses. All of these letters are my first real light of hope, because many months ago I’d grown to despise the apathy of our nation, and lost all hope.
“They keep us in a remote part of the DC jail that wasn’t even in use until they brought us here. This is the 6th jail I’ve been shuffled around to since the day that 30 “agents” and a tank assaulted me with guns and flash-bang grenades, when they arrested me, nearly nine months ago.”
“I’m being charged with a lot of serious-sounding charges that make no sense to me. But since I’ve never actually seen the charges against me, I’m not sure of the specifics. I know the liberal media has been calling me things that end in “-ist” or “-phobic”. Untrue accusations of thought crimes…and they say I’ll serve 26yrs to life!” Schwartz noted.
He then tore into his attorneys and his lack of defense.
“It’s no longer amusing. Apparently, I’m being ‘pushy’, and showing a ‘lack of trust’ in my lawyers by wanting to see the charges and evidence against me with my own eyes. I’m on my 3rd defense attorney now and trying for a new one,” he explained.
“None have filed any motions on my behalf, and they keep telling me to stay in jail quietly while the Prosecutors take the time they need to build a case against me! I’ve been wearing the same contact lenses since January 7th. My eyes hurt. My money’s gone, and my career as a traveling welder might be over,” he continued.

“The Democrat’s dream for our country is a reality now,” Schwarz lamented.
“Meanwhile, the guards here strut around in their ‘Black Lives Matter’ face masks, being abusive, and shoving their racist propaganda down our throats; papers and magazines that openly say that ‘white people’ are devils, and dogs, and that we’re lower than swine… claiming black men are gods. This racist, religious, cult propaganda is shoveled at us daily… but it was a 3 month battle for me to get a Bible! And they call US racist for wanting a fair election?!?” he added.
Schwartz got around to detailing what the police allegedly did on January 6.
“On January 6th. 2021 the police repeatedly tried to incite a riot. They had undercover ‘agitators’, plus the Capitol police using mace, tear gas, flash-bang grenades…or they’d beat on a woman…in order to fire up the crowd. (Like Roseanne, who they beat to death and then are disrespecting her dead body.) These things did fire up the crowd, but then everybody would come right back down. The cops did this over and over and over until they murdered Ashli Babbitt too. I think they did it to incite the crowd into enough of a frenzy that would justify them shooting us all.”
My God @CapitolPolice were beating Rosanne Boyland and they told us all she died of a drug overdose. They won’t even let her family have access to complete autopsy. What is @January6thCmte doing to investigate her death? Nothing. pic.twitter.com/dq4cpsWbOY

“And when the crowd didn’t escalate to the level they hoped; they just let people in the building for photos, so they could push their narrative anyhow. Their sick, twisted narrative that now taunts the American people by giving Ashli Babbit’s murderer a REWARD for killing her,” he asserted.
The letter continued as Schwartz went into the end of his career and marriage over all of this.
