"I don't want to be afraid for my life, and I don't think I will be, because I know that I have so many people backing me,” Jackson said.
Video from the insurrection shows his father, 48-year-old Guy Reffitt, on the steps of the Capitol wearing a helmet with a camera attached, a blue jacket and what appears to be a bulletproof vest.
Jackson says that when his dad returned home, he warned the family, ”If you’re a traitor, you get shot."
“I took it as a threat personally,” Jackson added.
According to Jackson, Guy Reffitt is a member of Three Percenters, a far-right, anti-government militia group. After Jackson turned his dad into the FBI, Guy Reffitt was charged with obstruction of justice and unlawful entry. He told agents he was at the Capitol, but insists he never went inside.
Jackson said he has not spoken with his parents in several days.
“It's a lot on my mind, because I feel responsible,” the teen said.
When asked if he would do it again, Jackson said, "Yes sir, I would."
