Sleeping with his back to the Wall: Doug Jensen arrested by FBI for ‘Fascist Stupidity Syndrome’


Des Moines Register: Doug Jensen, a 41-year-old Des Moines man who was photographed among the mob that invaded the U.S. Capitol, has been arrested and is in custody in the Polk County Jail, Sgt. Ryan Evans of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Saturday morning.

He was booked into the jail at 1 a.m.

FBI Public Affairs Specialist Amy Adams said Jensen was arrested by the FBI, and he’s facing five federal charges:

  • Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.
  • Disrupting the orderly conduct of government business.
  • Violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building.
  • Parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.
  • Obstructing a law enforcement officer during a civil disorder.

In a video posted by Igor Bobic, a politics reporter for HuffPost, Jensen appears to be one of the first people attempting to push past a police officer and into the Capitol. Jensen is at the front of the crowd and follows the officer up a staircase, running behind the officer, who is trying to keep the crowd from entering the second floor.

KCCI Des Moines: KCCI has confirmed that Doug Jensen, of Des Moines, is a former employee of Forrest & Associate Masonry in Des Moines. President & CEO Richard Felice told KCCI Jensen was a laborer at the masonry company. He has worked there for at least a few years. Felice said the company does not agree with the actions of their employee. On Friday, the company announced that Jensen has been let go.
