Doug Jensen, one of the first people to breach the Capitol building, was known as the rioter who chased a police officer. The “poster boy” of the January 6 riots was just sentenced to five years in prison.   When a pro-Trump mob attacked the Capitol, Doug Jensen, 43, was directly involved in one of the day’s most dramatic moments. Jensen, the tenth person to breach the Capitol Building led a crowd chasing U.S. Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman officer up a set of stairs and into a corridor just outside the Senate chambers. The man, clad in a distinctive black QAnon hoodie, screamed at the officer to arrest then Vice President Mike Pence and “do their jobs.” Images of the stand-off and Jensen at the front of the crowd quickly made  him one of the faces of the riot, alongside folks like the QAnon Shaman.  The Iowa man was forced to leave the Capitol building after the initial break-in but, undeterred, reentered the grounds and had to be forcibly removed a second time. Unbeknownst to most, he was armed with a knife during his time on the hill.  Authorities conducted a massive effort to identify and arrest those who breached the Capitol grounds that day and have charged almost 1,000 people so far. Jensen, being one of the most prominent faces to emerge from that day, was quickly identified and arrested two days after the riots.  Jenson was found guilty of assaulting a law enforcement officer, obstructing an official proceeding, entering and remaining in a restricted building with a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon in September.
