PATCO's Desperate Friend Demands Biden Leave Office Or He Blows Himself Up!

Video has been posted on Facebook by the suspect, a law enforcement official told CNN.
A video that lasts about a half-hour shows an individual from inside a truck, holding a canister that he says is a bomb and speaking about a “revolution.”

While police continued negotiations, video surfaced of Roseberry on Facebook Live inside the truck, which was stuffed with coins and boxes. He was threatening explosions, making anti-government threats and talking about what he believes are the ills of the country, including the U.S. position on Afghanistan, health care and the military.

He said Democrats needed to step down, then also said he loved the president, Democrat Joe Biden. Facebook removed the videos a few hours after they were apparently filmed. Roseberry did not appear to have a specific demand for law enforcement other than to speak with Biden.

Roseberry’s ex-wife, Crystal Roseberry, said she had seen images of the man in the standoff at the Capitol and confirmed to The Associated Press that it was her ex-husband. She said had never known him to have explosives, but that he was an avid collector of firearms.


A pickup truck is parked on the sidewalk in front of the Library of Congress’ Thomas Jefferson Building, as seen from a window of the U.S. Capitol, Thursday, Aug. 19, 2021, in Washington. A man sitting in the pickup truck outside the Library of Congress has told police that he has a bomb, and that’s led to a massive law enforcement response to determine whether it’s an operable explosive device.

The man, identified by law enforcement officials as Floyd Ray Roseberry, 49, of North Carolina, crawled out of the vehicle and was being taken into custody shortly before 2:30 p.m.

He had pulled up outside the library earlier in the day and told police he had a bomb in his truck. An officer saw what appeared to be a detonator in the man’s hand.

The man had been negotiating with police during a standoff that lasted around five hours.

Half of Americans, 50 percent, approve of the way Biden is handling his job as president in the CBS News poll — but the same number, 50 percent, disapprove of Biden. In the NBC News poll, Biden’s approval rating is 49 percent, compared to 48 percent disapproval.


Both polls show declines in views of Biden, whose presidency has been besieged by twin crises in recent weeks: a resurgence of the coronavirus domestically, and the rocky withdrawal of U.S. military personnel and other Americans from Afghanistan ahead of Biden’s looming deadline. Biden’s approval rating slid 8 points in the CBS poll since July, and it’s down 4 points since the last NBC News survey, in April.
The two surveys are consistent with other polls indicating the strong approval ratings with which Biden entered the Oval Office have waned. The latest RealClearPolitics average pegs Biden’s approval rating and disapproval rating at the same number: 48 percent. And while the FiveThirtyEight average — which adjusts numbers from polling firms with histories of bias — is more positive for Biden (49 percent approval), Biden’s average disapproval rating of 46 percent is higher than at any point in his young presidency.
Despite the recent decline, Biden’s approval ratings remain higher than his predecessor’s: In four years, former President Donald Trump’s approval rating never hit 48 percent in the RealClearPolitics average, while his disapproval rating remained at 50 percent or greater from the two-month mark of his presidency until he left office this past January.
