This photo appears in today’s online Idaho Statesman skewspaper story headlined Armed man’s Capitol intrusion unnerves Idaho lawmakers. Mouse-click on the photo to enlarge it.
The photo’s caption reads, “An unidentified man carrying a gun looked through legislators’ papers and also took photos of documents on the floor of the Idaho House of Representatives on Jan. 10. SEE THE VIDEO AT IDAHOSTATESMAN.COM” I am unable to locate the video at Idahostatesman.com, but the online photo seems very odd to me.
The photo appears to be a frame-grab from the state’s video recording of the incident. It also appears to show the man’s left hand grasping something above the top of the desk. If so, the man’s left hand is disproportionately large in comparison to his right hand. It is also far more red that the other skin tones in the photo. Finally, there appears to be a coat or jacket draped over the man’s left forearm. If the “reddish left hand” is represented to be the man’s left hand holding a paper, the man’s lower forearm, wrist, and hand appear to be misaligned with and both longer and thicker than his upper left forearm. The man is wearing a white or light colored shirt, but the left wrist area appears dark.
