I'd rather see the effort spent prosecuting the insurrectionists and giving them the maximum punishment allowed under the law. Every last person who can be identified in the footage should be tried and convicted for sedition .
I agree with the need to do that. But there is a common theme in the US (and likely other countries) of punishing what amount to foot soldiers and middle managers, while the people at the heads of movements continue on to either comfortable lives, or new plans to exploit people. The rich and powerful need to have justice delivered the same as the poor and powerless, perhaps even more so.
