Several Capitol police officers suspended, more than a dozen under investigation over actions related to rally, riot

…from the Washington Post

[ Editor’s Note: The world is going to change for any Capitol police with proper evidence to charge with assisting or supporting the rioting in any way. The Secret Service is even combing social media for those supporting charges of a rigged election and those calling Congressmen validating the Biden victory to be guilty of treason.

It looks like some new job opportunities will be opening up for those needing work in DC with great benefits.

Of course their families will suffer, but I have no sympathy for those with these well paying jobs with great benefits who spit on the rest of us by supporting insurrection. Let them reap what they have sown… Jim W. Dean ]

Colonel Brock’s like is about to be changed forever as he may end up in front of a military tribunal

Several U.S. Capitol Police officers have been suspended and more than a dozen others are under investigation for suspected involvement with or inappropriate support for the demonstration last week that turned into a deadly riot at the Capitol, according to members of Congress, police officials and staff members briefed on the developments.

Eight separate investigations have been launched into the actions of Capitol officers, according to one congressional aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the status of the internal review.

In one of the cases, officers had posted what Capitol Police investigators found to be messages showing support for the rally on Wednesday that preceded the attack on the complex, including touting President Trump’s baseless contention that the election had been stolen through voter fraud, the aide said.

… Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Pittman, who took command of the department on Friday after Sund’s resignation, determined that the actions “qualified for immediate suspension.”

“The main point is that Capitol Police are looking at everybody involved that could have potentially facilitated at a big level or small level in any way,” Ryan said.

…The Secret Service indicated Monday that it was investigating an officer who posted comments on Facebook in which she accused lawmakers who formalized Biden’s win of treason and echoed Trump’s conspiracy theories about the rigging of the election.

  1. But, but, but… Israel got away with nuking us on 9/11, Jim. Many active military and intelligence folk stood down and let that horrible attack happen. Shouldn’t these poor pathetic “patriots” be accorded the same right to commit felony murder without facing consequences as Israel did back in 2001? These dudes were only responsible for 5 deaths. The real perps of 9/11 ended up murdering millions in all the wars of this century.

    • You’re mixing up principles and concepts.
      The state doesn’t work that way.
      By the way, 1.06. much more tragic and terrible for the democratic institutions of the United States than 9.11.

    • George, the consequences of 1-6-21 are dire.

      However, it is the same perps with the same motivations, I think. So the concepts are going to overlap.

      Likewise, if there is another failure of holding the perps accountable, then the same groups who allowed them to walk away without penalty after 9-11-01 will be doing it this year. The criminals were probably offshore within hours. But, the public needs to call them out, regardless of their location.
