“We stormed the Capitol, fought the police,” Kevin Tuck allegedly wrote to his family. “… We took the flag. It’s our flag.”
Tuck doesn't seem to understand the law very well, despite a career in law enforcement. “Patriots are being arrested left and right for trespassing.

WINDERMERE, Fla. — A former Windermere police officer facing federal charges for his alleged participation in the U.S. Capitol riot is railing against his charges in a new YouTube video, calling for other conservatives to “rise up.”
Kevin Tuck was arrested in July and resigned from the Windermere Police Department the same day.
Tuck has some different ideas about policing, one suspects. And presumably so does his son, also a former cop. Also arrested.

Tuck and his son, Nathaniel Tuck, a former Apopka police officer, are both facing similar charges.
