Proud Boys Chairman Regrets Actions at Nation's Capital
The mouthpiece of a South Florida-based right-wing extremist group that calls themselves the Proud Boys is out of jail and back in South Florida in his hometown.
In his first sit-down interview since being released, Enrique Tarrio spoke exclusively to the NBC 6 Investigators, saying he regrets the actions that landed him in jail and the violence on Jan. 6, 2021.
Tarrio said if he wasn’t arrested, he would have been at the capital that day and that he would have stopped the Proud Boys from participating in any violence.
One week out of a DC jail and fresh from seeing his probation officer, NBC 6 met up with Tarrio at his warehouse in southwest Miami-Dade, where he makes t-shirts, hats and everything else sold on his website.

11-Foot Great White Shark Pings Off the Coast of Florida

In the deep blue waters, miles off the beach, there is a watery highway. It’s like the Atlantic Ocean’s version of Interstate 95 with lanes heading north and south.
But instead of cars and trucks, fish and turtles of all shapes and species and sizes use the warm currents of the Gulf Stream and its eddies as a way to commute more than a thousand miles each season.
