    This is the guy deserving a medal. Not Jim Jordan or some big wig football coach.

    So basically the cop gave the rioters an access on the first floor and an access towards the second floor? There were so many doors that were open on the first floor and second floor, yet the cop didn’t bother to close them all leaving the rioters an access to all of them.

    I hadn't picked up on why he kept retreating. I'd wondered. Also, most network feeds didn't show him collecting reinforcements at the very end, just him retreating. Biased coverage? Great analysis, thank you!

    In this case, I would support the officer shooting these people because he feared for his life!

    I hope I get to see rubber bullets and tear gas next time. These people are not patriots. They’re a mob of seditionists.

    The push tied the rioter into a personal interaction. The officer played to the guy's macho ego. Great move.

    Give me a break. This Capital Officer was in full retreat. There was nothing strategic involved.
