What does Luke 23:19 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 23:19

Who, for a certain sedition made in the city
Of Jerusalem: he had made an insurrection in it, in opposition to the government, in order to have thrown off the yoke, and to have asserted and maintained their liberties, as a free people; or rather to have seized and plundered the properties of other people, since he is represented elsewhere as a robber:

and for murder;
which had either been committed by himself, or his accomplices, in the insurrection; and for these things, sedition, and murder, he

was cast into prison;
where he lay till this feast, in order to be executed.
