Capitol Rioter Wearing 'Camp Auschwitz' Hoodie Arrested in Virginia

The Capitol rioter who was filmed wearing a vile t-shirt that had 'Camp Auschwitz' written on it has been arrested in Virginia today (13 January).

Robert Keith Packer, 56, was booked into the Western Tidewater Regional Jail on felony charges, local news outlet 13NewsNow reports.

He was photographed taking part in the pro-Trump riot at the Capitol last week, while wearing the shirt, which to some suggested that the riots had racist undertones.

Packer's shirt read 'work brings freedom' at the bottom, which roughly translates to 'arbeit macht frei' - the phrase on the gates of the infamous concentration camp where 1.1 million people lost their lives during World War II.

Packer, who CNN report is a welder and pipe-fitter, has now been charged with knowingly entering a restricted building and for violent entry and disorderly conduct.

Police have continued to search for those involved in the unrest that occurred last week at the Capitol last week in Washington DC.

A number of people have lost their jobs since the rioting and violence at the Capitol Building in Washington DC on Wednesday after their employees identified them.

The first to go was a man who decided to attend the invasion inside the seat of US government wearing his work lanyard.

The man - from Maryland - worked for a digital marketing company called Navistar Direct Marketing.

After being alerted to their employee's presence at the Trump-backed incursion into the Congress and Senate building, Navistar released a statement that read: "Navistar Direct Marketing was made aware that a man wearing a Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 during the security breach.

"While we support all employee's right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing."

Since then, Texan attorney Paul Davis, who was prominently pictured at the incident, has lost his job at Goosehead Insurance.

On Twitter, they said: "Paul Davis, Associate General Counsel, is no longer employed by Goosehead."

Meanwhile, the FBI says it has received intelligence that armed protests have been planned in all 50 US states in the coming days.

Less than a week after the deadly riots at the Capitol building in Washington D.C., it appears conservative extremists are going to make the final few days of Donald Trump's presidency a ca transition period.

Trump is due to leave the White House on January 20 when Joe Biden gets inaugurated.

CNN obtained a document from the FBI that states 'armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January'.
