Georgia Bank Executive Commits Suicide After Being Charged in Capitol Riot

Posted on | January 13, 2021 | No Comments

Christopher Stanton Georgia, 53, was a regional portfolio manager at BB&T, who lived in a fine home in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta. He was a cum laude graduate of Georgia State University. After he was charged in connection with last week’s riot at the Capitol in D.C., leftists began barraging his employer’s Twitter account with demands that he be fired. Saturday, he died from a self-inflicted gunshot:

An Alpharetta man who was among those arrested following the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday has killed himself, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Christopher Georgia, 53, died Saturday from a gunshot wound to his chest, said M. Ruffin, an investigator for the office. Georgia’s body was found in the basement of a home in a subdivision near Brierfield and Mid Broadwell roads, Alpharetta police records show. Police found two rifles at the home.
Metropolitan Police in Washington, D.C., arrested Georgia Wednesday evening and charged him with “unlawful entry of public property” and violating the city’s 6 p.m. curfew in connection with last week’s storming of the Capitol by President Trump’s supporters.
He pleaded not guilty Thursday, D.C. Superior Court records show, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported his involvement in Friday’s editions.
His attorney, Marnitta King, declined to comment. His family did not respond to requests for comment.
Georgia was among several Peach State residents who traveled to Washington Wednesday. Online sleuths have identified Savannah QAnon adherent Dominic Box, Americus lawyer McCall Calhoun and former Georgia resident Eric Munchel as among the hundreds who breached the U.S. Capitol.

More details:

Documents obtained exclusively by DailyMail[dot]com show Georgia’s wife called 911 on Saturday morning, telling authorities there was ‘blood everywhere’. His body was found in the basement of the home they share.
Family members on the scene were described by police as ‘extremely distressed’ in a police report. . . .
At around 7:15pm last Wednesday, on the night of the riots, Georgia was reportedly among a group outside in violation of the District’s 6pm curfew that had been put in place earlier that day to stem the chaos wreaked by the pro-Trump mob.
When officers gave the group several warnings to disperse, Georgia and his group reportedly refused, according to the documents. They were then placed under arrest as a result.

Nobody, so far as we know, has accused Christopher Georgia of doing anything violent. He was part of a group that failed to disperse in violation of the D.C. curfew order. What has happened is that everybody charged last Wednesday has been targeted for destruction by the Left.

As Kurt Schlichter keeps saying: They want us all dead.

Try to stay alive, just to spite them. Your mere existence is valuable.

UPDATE: Welcome, Instapundit readers! Sarah Hoyt says:

“Riot” my sore feet. I’ve been in demonstrations. I’ve been in riots. I’ve been in demonstrations that were fired upon and where panic erupted and people got trampled. That one wasn’t any of the above. It was the Democrats — ineptly — trying to use a protest to create a Reichstag fire. Stupidly. Because they are very stupid people. And now panicked too.

She’s a fierce one, our Portuguese friend.
