A California sheriff’s official — who also happens to be the brother of “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt — was outed as a supporter of a far-right, anti government group, linked to the Capitol Hill riot, according to a report.
Daniel “Cully” Pratt, a sergeant with the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, has shown his support for the Three Percenter movement on social media by using hashtags such as #3percenter and #willnotcomply, the group’s slogan, an investigation by the non-profit news site Open Vallejo reveals.
Pratt posted a photo on Instagram in October 2016 showing him with a wood display he made for his colleague Sgt. Roy Stockton, according to the outlet.
The handmade wooden sign features Stockton’s AR-15 rifle and symbols associated with the Three Percenter group.
At least one Three Percenter member has been charged in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the outlet reported.
The Anti-Defamation League refers to the extremist group as a “militia movement” that began in 2009.
“The term “Three Percenter” refers to the erroneous belief that only 3% of colonists fought against the British during the Revolutionary War—but achieved liberty for everybody,” the ADL says.
“Three Percenters view themselves as modern day versions of those revolutionaries, fighting against a tyrannical U.S. government rather than the British,” the organization added.
Solano County Sheriff Thomas Ferrara defended his employees.
“I am not aware of one instance where any of these employees acted in a manner that was portrayed in this article,” Ferrara said in a statement to KOVR, adding that he approached his deputies about Open Vallejo’s article.
The sheriff said, “The employees told me that their intention was to support the 2nd amendment and the U.S. Constitution.”
