What should happen to this guy?

Retired Air Force pilot seen on video carrying EZ-cuffs in the Capitol building. He was outed and now claims he picked them up off the floor.

6. He's a practical kind of guy... you know...

When he sees that he can use something that's laying on the floor, he PICKS IT UP because he wants to use it.

What a goof. As if picking it up from the floor changes his intent...

12. Right they would make a good belt or head band.

Why pick up items that could show intent of serious federal charges.
Is this guy an idiot?

7. Arrested and tried

Once convicted, the judge should throw the book at him because as a former USAF LtCol, he knows that he shouldn't be there.

13. He should be held to a higher standard than civilians. A field officer knows better.

8. Court martial

Whether he ever sees the light of day depends on how high up the food chain he gives up.

15. Is it a crime to possess EZ-cuffs? (I didn't know they had a name)

Forgetting the cuffs, he can be tried for trespass, breaking and entering. If earlier video shows him with the cuffs, then he lied to federal investigators.

There's enough to charge him with real crimes. If there's no law against EZ-cuffs, no need to make one up on the fly.

Jail time, fines, add to no-fly list. Since he's retired from military, not sure if his benefits can legally be stopped.

If I were him, I'd plead "brainwashing" at Air Force Academy / Colorado Springs / Evangelical Xtian boot camp.

16. NDAA Section 1021 anyone who has committed a belligerent act can be detained indefinitely

without charges or trial as a suspected terrorist. They should use this for anyone connected to the coup attempt.
