Caught Finally: ‘The Eye Gouger,’ former NYPD for Deadly Attacks on Capitol Police

Prosecutors said Thomas Webster attacked a Capitol police officer with a flag pole that was flying a Marine Corps flag


CNN: A retired New York police officer is facing charges for participating in the Capitol riot last month, where he allegedly attacked a Capitol officer.

Thomas Webster appeared in court Tuesday, where federal prosecutors alleged that he wore a bulletproof vest and was prepared for “armed conflict” during the Jan. 6 attack on the federal building. Prosecutors alleged that Webster attacked a Capitol police officer using a flag pole that was flying a Marine Corps flag and also pulled down the officer’s mask, causing him to choke.

Webster allegedly called the officer a “commie motherf—–” and went after him like a “junkyard dog,” prosecutors argued in court Tuesday.

James Monroe, Webster’s attorney, did not deny that his client was seen in video evidence found by investigators. Webster went to the Capitol to protest and went at the urging of former President Donald Trump, Monroe argued.

Monroe asked the judge to release Webster on bond, citing his family ties and lack of criminal history. Webster was honorably discharged from the Marines and spent 20 years with the New York Police Department, his attorney argued.

During his time as a police officer, Webster did security for City Hall and the New York City mayor’s official residence Gracie mansion, according to law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the investigation. He retired from the force 2011, the NYPD confirmed to NBC News on Tuesday.

  1. Exactly how did he determine that the Capital Police Officer was a Commie Motherfucker? Is there a data base for these Commie Motherfuckers or did he just simply ask? Plus he’s a pussy. Real men fight with fists, don’t maim, and afterwards have a talk, if not a couple of cold ones. And work their differences out.
