According to the criminal complaint, Wesley threatened to shoot his teenage children if they turned him over to the FBI, on Jan16th he was arrested and charged with a federal charge for obstruction of justice. Also, Reffitt admitted to the agents that he had been at the Capitol but did not go inside.
Who is Guy Wesley Reffitt?
He is a member of a “3%er” organization, according to law enforcement agency militia extremists sometimes call themselves three percenters (“III%ers” or “threepers”) based on the myth that only three percent of American colonists took up arms against the British during the American Revolution.
Furthermore, some III%ers regard the present-day US Government as analogous to British authorities during the Revolution in terms of infringements on civil liberties. While many independent or multi-state militia groups incorporate III% in their unit names, the term is less indicative of membership in a single overarching group than it is representative of a common belief in the notion that a small force with a just cause can overthrow a tyrannical government if armed and prepared.
In 2008, the “Three Percenter” idea gained traction and inspired some believers to form militia groups. On January 16th the FBI agents executed a search warrant at Reffitt’s home in Wylie, Texas and then he admitted to the agents that he had been at the Capitol but did not go inside.
Also, Guy said the agents he had brought a “Smith & Wesson pistol” with him but “had disassembled it to comply with the law in Washington, D.C.” Reffitt’s 18-year-old son, Jackson blames President Donald Trump for inspiring his father’s actions and believed the president had “manipulated even my own family members.”
According to the report, Guy Wesley also threatened his two children if they turned him in, federal prosecutors said. The children’s ages were not listed in the court filing, Mr. Reffitt allegedly told his children “If you turn me in you’re a traitor and you know what happens to traitors … traitors get shot,” and he also told his family that he had “erase everything” because the FBI was on to him, vowing to “do what he had to do,” if his family reported him to the FBI, court documents revealed.
Also, he threatened to “put a bullet” through his daughter’s phone if she shared a video of him rioting in the Capitol, according to federal prosecutors.
