The news is out: [A rioter dressed in full combat gear and carrying zip-tie handcuffs during the US Capitol siege is a decorated US Air Force veteran, the New Yorker reported Saturday.
An article by Ronan Farrow named the man, seen in photos from Wednesday’s attack, as Larry Rendall Brock Jr.
Farrow said that Brock was a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force, a senior rank that usually requires 15 years of service to achieve.
Brock confirmed to Farrow that he was the man in the photos. He claimed that he had been planning to give the zip-tie cuffs to police rather than use them himself.]
He was well trained by the US Air Force.
