A 70-year-old Texas woman who attended the January 6 insurrection allegedly said to a police officer that “blue lives matter” just before ignoring police orders, according to court documents obtained by the Wisconsin Law Journal,

Six months later, during a 2021 interview with federal agents, Judy Fraize (70) admitted she traveled from Dallas to Washington D.C, where she entered the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021.

Sporting a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap, Fraize posted for pictures with other rioters, according to court documents.

At or around 3:07 p.m. on January 6, 2021, Fraize was instructed by law enforcement officers to exit the Capitol, according to court documents.

She responded, “blue lives matter,” then again ignored officers’ instructions, according to court documents.

Officers repeated to Fraize orders to exit the Capitol, and she responded to police, “We have to take this country back.”

According to FBI documents, she allegedly violated 40 USC § 5104(e)(2)(D)&(G), which makes it a crime to willingly and knowingly udder load, threatening, or abusive language, or engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct at any place in the Grounds or any of the Capitol Buildings with intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session of Congress.

Fraize has since been charged with four misdemeanors for trespassing and disorderly conduct.
