January invaded and rioted at the U.S. Capitol, the FBI is searching for those involved. After just one week, according to FBI Director Christopher Wray, 200 cases had been investigated and 100 people had been arrested. The call to provide authorities with information about the violent riots has apparently been answered by tens of thousands.

He has analyzed the 827 videos that were taken away during the riots in and around the Capitol and uploaded to Parler, a social network used by right-wingers. The result is a website that shows 6000 portrait photos of all those people who appear in some way in those videos. Moreover, the system was apparently so poorly secured that it was no problem for pass away activists to secure even Parler posts deleted by users.
