Thomas Webster, my devoted husband of 23 years, loving father of our three children, decorated Marine veteran and retired NYPD police officer of 21 years, has been sentenced to ten years in federal prison for assault charges on January 6th. This is the longest sentence of any J6 defendant to date.
However, exculpatory video evidence clearly shows a DC Metro police officer violently punched Tom in the face and initiated the whole incident!
It is heartbreaking for our family to be apart, and extremely frustrating that most Americans do not understand what really happened to Tom. The Webster family has been struggling with over $300,000 in legal fees, draining our retirement and college tuition savings for our children, in order to fight this legal battle. After Tom was convicted and sentenced to ten years, he decided to change counsel, and hired a prominent federal criminal appeals firm for direct appeal. The Webster family needs your help to continue fighting for justice, and FREE TOM!
Please see the attached video that clearly proves Tom's innocence and read the Gateway Pundit article published October 12, 2022, the day before Tom began serving his ten year sentence.
Here is a brief summary of the incident: On January 6, 2021 Thomas Webster attended his very first political rally EVER! At 2pm he arrived at the capitol building and went to the West Terrace – along with thousands of others – after being told there would be a speech.
As Tom walked closer to the gathering of protestors, the reality of the situation began settling in. Tactics being used by the police were hurting and ultimately killing protestors. Tom witnessed elderly people covered in blood, terrified children, and people who had been severely injured from projectiles. Women were being assaulted and beaten.
At 2:28pm Tom Webster walked up to a police line, in disbelief at how Americans were being treated by LAW ENFORCEMENT! He approached the barrier to express his 1st Amendment Right. A Metropolitan PD police officer immediately reacted with very aggressive shoving, instead of de-escalation. At one point he looks up at Webster’s Marine Corps flag and initiates physical contact – over the barrier! The officer pushed Webster – the push can be seen from several angles when it happens. The officer gives no verbal warning! Instead he reaches over the police barricade, lunges, and pushes Webster multiple times. Frustrated by the Officer’s repeated escalation of physical contact, Webster pushes the bike gate. With a deliberate wind-up, the officer then punches Webster hard in the face with a GLOVED-HAND. Webster said the punch hit like a freight train, and he was left seeing stars. The officer testified that he attempted to push Webster’s shoulder and slipped, hitting his face. Webster reacts to the hit in self-defense, swinging his flag at the gate rail, never making contact with the officer. The officer crosses over the gate rail to re-engage Webster. Webster had backed away from the police barrier and reacts to the officer coming towards him. Webster waves the officer to stay away. At this point Webster believes the officer is after him. The officer crossed the gate rail and grabs the flagpole away from Webster. Webster feels the crowd move forward and feels pressure from a red-hatted man behind him. Tom felt the need to defend himself. The officer then rams the flagpole twice into the side of Webster’s face and mouth. Webster pushes up the officer’s gas mask but does not strike back.
It is truly despicable that Tom was sentenced to ten years for a brief scuffle that lasted seconds after getting punched hard in the face. THIS ENTIRE INCIDENT WAS CAPTURED ON THE CAPITOL SECURITY CAMERA AND SHOWN TO THE JURY, BUT TOM WAS STILL CONVICTED ON ALL COUNTS.
