As well they should. Caught unaware at the size and ferocity of the criminal, terrorist mob set upon them by a Dotard they fought back valiantly, and in doing so became a model for all Americans who want to protect our freedom from fascists. Our collective thanks have not yet been loud enough for these heroes...

Great to see the officers and families ignore McConnell and Mccarthy. They should have been banned from the ceremony.

www.theguardian.com

Prior to the 8 November elections, he noted that "of the 100 most retweeted tweets about Ukraine posted by GOP candidates for the House since August, roughly 90% opposed continued support for Ukraine. Though much of that messaging plays to simple pocketbook concerns " essentially saying, Why are we supporting Ukraine when Americans are struggling to pay their bills?' " there is also a strain of anti-Ukrainian disinformation that colors some of their commentary."

There were some entrances where the guards let the "protesters" in.

So the handful of guards didn't want to shoot people who were entering parts of the building somehow makes it ok that they a)crossed barricades, b) beat officers with flag poles and fire extinguishers, c)gouged and destroyed police eyesockets, d)crushed a police officer in a door e) smeared feces on the wall, f) stole government property, guns and badges, e)smashed windows and doors and entered buildings they were not legally allowed to enter.

Most are getting their just desserts for their actions.

The oaf creepers and proud boofs used the "protest" as cover to enter the building with the goal of capturing Pelosi, Pence and others.

Minimizing their illegal acts makes you look a fool.

Hodges said that he and likely many other officers didn't shoot at the rioters because they feared it would escalate the situation.

"I was wondering how many more bombs are there? What's the trigger? Is it going to be a cellphone? Is it on a timer? How many guns are there...if we start firing, is that the signal to set off the explosives?" Hodges said in his testimony.

"That's the reason why I didn't shoot anyone," he said.

Hodges said there were about 9,000 "terrorists" at the Capitol that day and only a couple hundred officers.

"If that turned into a firefight, we would have lost and this was a fight we couldn't afford to lose," he said.

1) she WASN'T unarmed. She had a chair leg that she had smashed a chair to grab upstairs. This is what she used to break out the glass window. Or did you stupidly think she just walked up and punched out a window unscathed? Idiot.

2) your attempt to insinuate that arms must be present for deadly force to be justified is laughable morally, ethically, and most of all, legally. The only requirement for deadly force to be authorized, is that the a reasonable officer would be in fear for his life. That threshold was met by the fact that she was at the head of an angry mob, outnumbered the cop over 100 to 1, her and her ilk had been using deadly force for hours, AND it has been broadcast over the radios that weapons had been observed in the crowd. It was a TOTALLY justified shoot, in every definition

If you have information linking the bombs at the Democratic and Republican headquarters to the Jan 6 protest you need to relay that information to authorities.

If you think it's just a coincidence that there were bombs placed outside the party headquarters the same day trump was planning his capitol attack you need to relay yourself to the nearest doctor and get your head checked.

Yes how dare the FBI infiltrate terrorist groups who were planning on preventing the transfer of power.

And while we're at it, it's none of the FBIs business if a fascist coup plotter stole classified documents from the white house.

You wrote this like it's a salient point.

Republicans told their voters they have to save America and "Stop the Steal!"

The dumbest of them listened and did what they were told. They tried to stop the certification.

The fact they failed, or that there was no way for them to succeed, doesn't negate their actions. They still tried.

There's literally footage of people climbing the walls. People wearing all black with zip tie handcuffs. Police being overwhelmed. People smeared shht on the walls.

You're also pretending there was more to it than hysterical people trying to prevent Biden from becoming president.

A coup doesn't require success, it doesn't require competence, and it doesn't require intelligence, or an education. What it does require is an ATTEMPT to overthrow the government. Which they ABSOLUTELY conspired to do.

The conspirators have said and it's been proven in court with what? 3 convictions and another 4 guilty pleas, that their intent was to prevent the certification of the electoral college votes. By doing so their stated goal was to make it so the voted in president couldn't be certified and sworn in on 1/20 and their guy could remain in power despite his election loss past his CONSTITUTIONALLY mandated end of term.

That, by every definition, is a coup attempt.

The Capitol Police showed an amazing amount of restraint during an armed violent attack on them and our Nations Capitol. They deserve those medals and the support and thanks of a grateful nation. We avoided a bloodbath of our own citizens.

Absolutely, Donner. They could have shot 100, and every one of them would have been justified, resulting in 0 prosecutions of the officers involved.

That they didn't is an amazing bit of professionalism and restraint.

I am a wishy washy moderate. I am conservative about SOME fiscal matters, but I'm socially liberal about things like gay marriage, trans rights, etc. One of the first votes I ever cast was for Reagan, and I have voted for many republicans ever since, which won't win me any friends here. As a general rule, I used to prefer republicans at the state level and below, and preferred democrats at the federal level. The Republican Party has become a laughing stock of its 1980s and 1990s version. It's sad what it's become. The reason I prefer democrats generally at the federal level is because while I like harsh on criminal policies generally, I think Europe style socialism has MUCH to offer the the US if we integrate it properly into our nation. It's disgusting that the number one cause of bankruptcy and addiction in this country is a result of getting seriously injured or sick, having to sell all assets too get treatment before the state will kick in anything off at all, and once out of money, having to resort to illicit drugs to self medicate. A Democrat national policy would fix that, but there are parts of the democrat platform I can't stand.

It all sucks. We need a multi party system so politicians have to coalition build. Too much of EVERYTHING is bad. That includes liberal ideas and conservative ideas. We need to meet in the middle. That's where real progress and positive change happens. Our winner take all system is the worst.

I am also very well versed in the law, so I know you and I have run afoul of opinions on police shootings. I am not always in one corner or the other.. Many police shootings are completely unjustified, but the public likes to run off on half into without really understanding when deadly force is and isn't legally justified. In the Case of 1/6? It is VERY justified.

If you think shooting protesters whose only threat is to property and creating a small delay in the election confirmation is morally justified you might be happier in Iran, China, Soviet Union etc. That's not America. You might find the government will quickly lose the consent of the governed if the state casually murders its citizens.

They always could use more force. The Federal government has almost limitless ability to that end. The question is SHOULD they have used more force as some have suggested. It may be frustrating when the government shows restraint when you disagree with protesters, but government must limit its response to the minimum force necessary or risk escalation and lose its mandate.

Your premise Is flawed. The government can NOT "always" use more force. There is right and wrong applications of deadly force. They could have and it works have been right. Showing restraint was also right, but much more painful ... And fatal ... To the police.

If there has been no weapons in the crowd ... And yes there assure several reports broadcast over the radio that weapons has been seen in the crowd, the protestors hadn't beaten several police unconscious, and the crowd had obeyed commands, the government could not have just used deadly force without severe repercussions.

There have been none ... . For a reason. They were right to use force, and could have legally, morally, and ethically, applied more deadly force than they did.

If the race of the people involved in 1/6 was any shade darker than white, the insanity from Republicans would deafen America.

If Republicans weren't directly complicit for inciting the insurrection they would be declaring war on the surviving* Americans who partook in the attempted insurrection.

*in the event non whites break into the capitol building, the majority of them would be shot dead on sight. (Or dead on site. Both work.)

1) she WASN'T unarmed. She had a chair leg that she had smashed a chair to grab upstairs. This is what she used to break out the glass window. Or did you stupidly think she just walked up and punched out a window unscathed? Idiot.

2) your attempt to insinuate that arms must be present for deadly force to be justified is laughable morally, ethically, and most of all, legally. The only requirement for deadly force to be authorized, is that the a reasonable officer would be in fear for his life. That threshold was met by the fact that she was at the head of an angry mob, outnumbered the cop over 100 to 1, her and her ilk had been using deadly force for hours, AND it has been broadcast over the radios that weapons had been observed in the crowd. It was a TOTALLY justified shoot, in every definition

They were being threatened with violence and didn't have the support to fend off hundreds of people.

Fascism failed hard on January 6th.

It did. It also revealed itself and its significance among the general population. Just look around the DR. Not one of these boot licking Republicans here made the trek to insurrection town, but not a one here is willing to acknowledge reality let alone denounce the criminals for what they are either. That's complicity.

That in and of itself is significant.

Had Trump simply conceded the election, just like every other losing POTUS candidate in history, Ashli Babbitt would still be alive. That'll never get old.

Swallow it.

And hundreds of trumpturds would still be free.

And capitol police officers would not be dead or injured.

And millions in vandalism damage to the Capitol would have been avoided.

And fat hitler would not be under investigation by the DOJ for 1/6.

And Rooty Tooty would still have a law license in DC and NY.

And Sydney Bumble Powell would not be facing losing her law license.

And the Kraken crew would not be facing a billion dollar lawsuit.

And Elmer Fudd Rhodes would still be free.

Trump has left a a trail of corruption, death, injury and destruction in his craven desire to be a dictator and his refusal to admit he sucked as a president.

SHRimp has no idea about what is involved in carrying a baby to term while still supporting the babies you already have. My bet is he wouldn't be up to the task, even with a woman carrying the baby. Only a*****e losers post the ignorant crap he posts. Probably never even had a girlfrirnd. Losers like him just aren't attractive. That's a faxt!

Has any explanation been given as to why capitol police held open a door and waved protesters into the building?

A video shot from the east side of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, shows a police officer waving in Trump supporters, signaling them to disregard barricades.

The same misleading video was also shared by a TikTok user named @travisjakers with the caption, "Capitol Police Officer Brings Terrorists In." That TikTok account no longer exists, but the video was downloaded and uploaded again to Twitter with the caption, "Capitol Hill police officer encourages Trump terrorists to go in."

The Second Video

Months later on Oct. 31, the Hunting Insurrectionists YouTube channel posted a second video that debunked this rumor. A review of the alternate angle that was recorded in the same location outside of the Capitol showed that the officer was waving to his or her fellow officers to fall back.

Fact Check: Did an Inside Man' Open Capitol Doors for Rioters on January 6?
No proof exists to support this claim.

This claim originated with a lawyer for members of the Oath Keepers, a far-right militia whose members have been charged with various crimes associated with the attack on the Capitol. The claim received coverage from The Epoch Times, a website with a history of spreading misinformation. The attorney, Jonathon Moseley, who has since been disbarred, claimed that the doors weighed 20,000 pounds and were locked magnetically. The conspiracy theory was further spread by The Gateway Pundit, another common source for fake news, conspiracy theories, and unsubstantiated information. Gateway Pundit cites a "US Marine veteran who worked overseas at a US Embassy," who is now a member of the Oath Keepers, and claims to have been present at the Capitol attack. The individual claimed that the doors themselves were "electronically controlled [and] magnetically locked" from the inside and outside, requiring an insider's special code to unlock them.

What's your answer?

What changes depending on the answer?

#254 I don't have an answer. If I did I wouldn't have asked the question. I do know that Rstytrombonebeach's answer was complete garbage.

Then we'll ignore your question since the answer doesn't change anything.

Fair?

LOL, nah. You just lack the ability to comprehend it as a valid answer. Why is that? Worse, you can't even counter. Which suggests it actually is a good answer. It's pretty fnkcin' simple, but no surprise you struggle with simple chit.

Now I'll ask without any faith that you'll actually respond: What about the answer are you struggling with?

Secondly, why have you become so fnckin' lazy as of late? Bullchit trolling, zero sincerity in argument. What happened? What has caused your recent collapse?

Or is that all you have to offer now, lazy bullchit trolling?

Hahaha! Even worse, BELLY completely ignores the fact check provided by GAL.

Apparently, BELLY is spreading misinformation.

Why is that?

Lazy AAAAAND a Republican tool?

The guy is fnkcing up royally. Fun to watch.

Let's go, BELLY. Start swallowing.
