Ceremony honors Capitol police officer killed during insurrection

by News Update

Lawmakers joined the family of fallen US Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, whose remains are lying in honor in the building’s famous Rotunda, to honor his service less than four weeks after he died after responding to the riot that erupted in the building.
Lying in state is typically reserved for leaders of American government, but two US Capitol Police officers shot to death in 1998 were the first private citizens to lie in honor at the Capitol.
Sicknick’s family released a statement on Saturday thanking “congressional leadership for bestowing this historic honor on our fallen American hero.”
“We also wish to express our appreciation to the millions of people who have offered their support and sympathies during this difficult time. Knowing our personal tragedy and loss is shared by our nation brings hope for healing,” the statement said.
Multiple lawmakers had called for Sicknick to be honored at the Capitol, and two Republicans from South Carolina had introduced a bill that would allow him to lie in the Rotunda before his burial at Arlington National Cemetery.
Sicknick, a New Jersey native who had served in the National Guard, died the day after the riot “due to injuries sustained while on-duty,” the Capitol Police said in a statement at the time. He was one of five people who died in the violence.
In the days following his death, Pelosi and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy also each arranged for flags to be flown at half-staff in Sicknick’s honor.
Sicknick’s ceremonial rest at the Capitol comes as investigators are struggling to build a federal murder case, vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death as he defended the Capitol during last month’s insurrection.

Donald Trump endangered the lives of all members of Congress when he aimed a mob of supporters at the U.S. Capitol, Democrats said in making their case for why the former president should be convicted and permanently barred from office. NO – in calls for unity we never should for get Jan. 6th!!!

What a DISGUSTING SLAP in the face to …ALL the "other" Police/Law Enforcement Officers killed this year by "Mostly Peaceful Protesters" without even a F'N NEWS STORY… WTF?? These CLOWNS pretending they give a SHIT.. is SICK.

During that trial, once those:

1) graphic images

2) videos

3) witnesses

4) recorded audio tapes

5) and related history of tweets and speeches ….etc…

All will be played on TV entering the living rooms of all Americans, the Republicans will need some serious help bouncing back if they don't vote with their consciences and souls to do the right thing.

Further, news says that his supporters who stormed the Capitol recited what he said word for word, including those who stated on video they were listening to his instructions – are now facing sedition and conspiracy charges with up to 20 years in prison.

White Nationalists were also present, where the FBI Director stated last year they were the gravest threat to US. Now M.Greene is added to the mix with all the conspiracy theories, etc…

I hope the Republicans are aware of what kind of message they will be sending if they are responsible for Trump not being held accountable as they ignore truth and justice – while others like his supporters will face sentencing.

Oh? CNN you are pro-police now? Where is the Defund the Police rhetoric propagated by BLM just last summer? Well well well, hypocrites! There are policemen who died in duty during Antifa and BLm riots but where is the honor? Democrat voters, wake up, these are two-faced fake people who are fooling you!

for every minute that those who incited the attack arent held accountable, it is absolute disrespect to this fallen officer. do they think a ceremony means anything?
how many of those cops standing in are feeling the guilt of allowing the attack to happen?

Towva lee February 4, 2021 - 12:33 AM

Those in the Capitol are the real criminals! They dont care if communities and workplaces burn under the hands of Antifa and BLM with Defund the Police movement. But uh uh you storm the Capitol and it's a capital offense. Bunch of losers!
