  1. It has to feel terrible to be inside a building, defending politicians, the capitol and yourselves and the current president wouldn't do anything to stop it yet rather insight the violence , not to condemn and demand it stop, but rather praise and discount. It had to feel isolating and as though you were going to die…. Sad

  2. I was in the hospital recovering from surgery on Jan 6. I was randomly flipping through the tv channels when I came across the news. I honestly thought I was hallucinating from the amount of painkillers in my body. I wish I had been hallucinating. My heart goes out to the Capitol Police. This man and his colleagues will probably spend the rest of their lives having nightmares about that day. Why? Because the blowhard in the White House couldn't handle defeat, his enablers couldn't tell him 'no', and there were plenty of dimwits in MAGA gear ready to swallow his nonsense.

  3. Here are the Facts
    1) This was all staged by Pelosi and the Democrats, because the Capital Police were TOLD, AND ENCOURAGED THE PROTESTORS TO COME IN. ITS ON VIDEO. FACT
    2) There were 3 or 4 Capital Police that committed Suicide?
    Really? They killed themselves and left families with kids?
    NO, IM NOT BUYING THAT BS.
    They were probably going to come forward to tell the truth and were Eliminated.
    3) ANTIFA was there at the Trump Rally and were also in the Capital Building Instigating Protestors FACT
    4) The Capital Police LET THE PROTESTORS IN, THERES VIDEO SHOWING IT. FACT
    5) Only 500 Protestors entered the Capital Building. More than 99% of Trump Supporters were peaceful protestors. Standing for the ELECTION FRAUD WHICH IS NOW PROVIN TO HAVE OCCURRED. FACT
    6) PROTESTORS ARE BEING HELD IN JAIL WHILE BLM AND ANTIFA ARE ALLOWED TO RIOT, LOOT, STEAL, AND DESTROY PROPERTY WITH NO CONSEQUENCES. FACT
    7) THE GOVERNMENT IS TOTALLY CORRUPT.
    70% of POLITICIANS SHOULD RESIGN OR BE ARRESTED. FACT
    8) YOUTUBE, GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND FAKE NEWS ABC CBS CNN MSNBC FOX WP NY TIMES ALL CENSOR CONSERVATIVE VOICES.

  4. You can’t have an Insurrection when the only ones armed were the Capital Police. And the only one Killed was an UNARMED PROTESTOR.
    WHAT ABOUT BLM AND ANTIFA WHICH RIOT LOOT STEAL AND DESTROY PROPERTY?
    Where’s JUSTICE?

  5. FAKE NEWS
    HERE ARE THE FACTS
    1) CAPITAL COP SHOT AN UNARMED PROTESTER. FACT
    2) NO PROTESTORS WERE ARMED. FACT
    3) ANTIFA WAS AT CAPITAL INSTIGATING TRUMP SUPPORTERS TO RIOT. THEY DIDN’T. FACT
    4) PELOSI AND DEMS STAGED THE BREAK IN BY ALLOWING CAPITAL POLICE TO “LET PROTESTORS IN” FACT
    5) THE PROTESTORS WERE LET INTO THE CAPITAL BY CAPITAL POLICE WHILE TRUMP WAS STILL SPEAKING. MEANING ONLY A HANDFUL OF PROTESTORS (500) OUT OF THE MILLION ON MORE THAT WERE THERE. FACT

  6. Was a riot no different than black lives matter riots.
    Only difference was this was rich polticians place of work rather than poor store owners.
    Was wrong but why were antifa and blm not hunted down afterwards also??

  7. The main issue that most people don't realize is that this was the most horrible attack to all law enforcement who had to deal with something this tragic! THIS is why I think anyone involved in this incident deserves to be seen as traitors and terrorist. I have no pity or feel bad for ANYONE involved in this horrible attack!

  8. So brave and then so difficult to have to speak about it like this. These are four accounts and this happend to so many more that day. All very brave people. ♥️ So important that this is not forgotten.

  9. August 5, 2021- Still the truth must be told, no matter how painful it is for the officers to go over it again. Sergeant Gonell thank you for your valiant efforts to help your fellow officers and others. I hope you get all the needed medical help you need. No, sill no response to the question at 14:02, I don't hear trump chiming in to say how unruly the mob was, how the attack on the Capitol police should never have happened. Trump needs to be jailed for a very long time for his part in the riot. I know trump will not take credit for what he set in motion, him and his grown children and his sons girlfriend.

  10. I am not American, however I watched live the events of that day. We all stand as so called intelligent people who say – how the Heck did Hitler happen, Putin and so many other dictators. They are one man people have brains. Now in our lifetime we can see just exactly how "ONE MAN" can in-fact make so called intelligent people his puppets. This is NOT what a true leader does, this is not what his s called Government supports should stand behind. Trump and his gang of Gov. Republictards say they stand for officers again and again. Yet now we see them saying sorry no time to listen to how you defend US with your own life. Sorry I was busy doing something more important then to hear and see how you defended us with YOUR life. FoxTards calling these BRAVE Men and Women publicity seeking hounds. I shake my head when these so-called Gov. leaders say this was a peaceful demonstration. The only thing peaceful about this is when at the funerals the words spoken "Rest in Peace" Because these brave officers did not die in PEACE. Truth hurts, and when someone who lies again and again is confronted with the truth – they have two choices: Dig in deeper and lie and deny louder – OR they can be adults, examples to our youth, to other nations – be a proud human being with morals and say "I was Wrong – please forgive me" IS that not what we tell our own children? Just tell the truth because we will always love you. In a world gone crazy with Covid do we seriously need ONE MAN destroying a country? Leaders come and go -they have a shelf life – your country stands forever – unless you want to follow example like the Romans… To your Republictard leaders who defend this you should ask for their resignations. For those of you who took part that day you should be incarcerated. For those who continue to deny the truth when in this day and time everything is recorded – well you should just be ashamed to look into your children's eyes. I'm not American, just your neighbor – but I feel for every officer who on that day held your democracy together while your so called leaders hide and let this happen for just one pathetic child!!

  11. This is one time I'm NOT going to side with these over blown hall monitors. Cry baby sissies. No wonder the politicians ran and hid. They KNEW these spineless wimps couldn't protect them. You gon cry?.
    Oh here we go get the big guy a tissue, oh heck give him the whole box.

  12. Thank you to these courageous Capitol police officers for standing up for America on the horrific January 6 insurrection. We need to get to the bottom of this attack on the Capitol and hold those responsible accountable

  13. The reason why the officers did not get the same support was due to race! White Republicans….Let me just say Trump supporters wanted to harm based on the election! It's a shame that the law enforcement had to go through this! This man is from the Dominican Republic and came here to better himself…Wanted to fight for our country…and look how these rioters treated him! America failed this HERO! This man went to War and came back fine….only to have this happen? MAKES ME SO UPSET!

  14. “I couldn’t sleep because after I took a shower my skin was burning,” that stuff is for real, bad chemical burns/nettle/“gympie gympie” plant, the pain comes back with cool/cold water in relativity to the skins surface temperature.
