Shortly after the horrific riot at the Capitol, federal authorities put out a public plea for help identifying those who participated in the day of lawlessness and chaos. The public has responded in a huge way, leading to the identification of more than 200 suspects so far, according to CNN.
And the public has been quite creative in how they've been able to aid authorities. As USA Today reported, one hacker managed to archive a huge trove of data from Parler, the social media platform frequented by the far-right extremists who stormed the Capitol, before it was taken offline.
Authorities are examining that data for clues about how the attack on the Capitol was planned, as well as GPS location data that may help identify users who breached the Capitol on January 6.
