  1. One officer suffered a hand injury while opening the gates to let in the rioters. Another had temporarily obscured eyesight from the flash of the selfie he took with the rioters.

    1. @efwno vdea so the four people who died were blm members and antifas, their mourning families will testify they were.

    1. @Devonta Draper – They have no legitimate defense for what their idiotic MAGA brethren did, so they just deflect and cry “but BLM…” If BLM had dared to break into the Capitol, with weapons no less, these same fools would be calling them all kinds of disgusting names, calling them terrorists, and saying they should be killed. Nobody has the right to swarm a government building just because their moron in chief lost an election. These people are beyond pathetic.

    2. ​@Robin Roupe This is another corrupt setup against Trump and his supporters. Firstly the information out there about corruption, fraud and blackmail, calls for extreme responses. Secondly Antifa/Left wing extremists members stirred up much of the strife and probably started the run on the capital building, and thirdly WHY was the police down to a few local police protecting the Capital building against such a huge crowd. Sounds like a set up to me and anyone else with a brain. Plain clothes police officer shoots women. Why not in uniform, when confronting a large crowd. Dirty Democrat run set-up.

    3. @efwno vdea what does that have to do with my question ? Speedom of speech relate to killing people ? And yes America does have freedom of speech last i checked

    4. @Intelligent Design yes it was definitly antifa not all the people that were at the Trump rally when Trump sais let’s march down Pennsylvania street and go to the Capitol to “show them how to vote”

    1. @toxic monsanto Supreme Court is highest, can’t go higher, their ruling is final. We accept their decision, just like every other person who was judged by the Supreme Court had to accept the verdict. Why trump doesn’t have to accept the verdict?? everyone else had to accept it, even if they were wrongly judged. The ruling was always carried out. No if or buts

    2. Antifa and BLM members also stormed that Capitol Building, not just Trump supporters. The man wearing the Vikings helmet that the media has been proclaiming as a Trump supporter has protested and rioted nationwide side by side with both Antifa and BLM.

    3. @allbets 0ff it’s not about what other’s think, it’s about the dignity of our country! Like china…. Their is no dignity in that country, many people don’t want to Settle their cause of it’s image amoung other countries.
      This will directly or indirectly affect the economy, and can lead to weakening of relationships with other countries….

  2. If the United States saw what the United States is doing in the United States, the United States would invade the United States to liberate the United States from the tyranny of the United States. -Mohamad Safa

    1. @efwno vdea ever heard of us vs them mentality? When one groups extreme does something terrible its terrible for the whole but if are extreme does something terrible it’s right? Why not just condem all acts of terror in the first place?

    2. @efwno vdea Lying like a dog must make the truly ignorant feel like royalty, because your Crown is shining brightly.

    3. This is another corrupt setup against Trump and his supporters. Firstly the information out there about corruption, fraud and blackmail, calls for extreme responses.

    1. @Catherine Nganga Fake news and election injustice are killing the Great America. We need to defend democracy and support our President Donald Trump

    2. @efwno vdea So what your saying is Swarming a Government building and rioting and assaulting police officers is being a true guardian?

    3. @JerCal playz This is another corrupt setup against Trump and his supporters. Firstly the information out there about corruption, fraud and blackmail, calls for extreme responses. Secondly Antifa/Left wing extremists members stirred up much of the strife and probably started the run on the capital building, and thirdly WHY was the police down to a few local police protecting the Capital building against such a huge crowd. Sounds like a set up to me and anyone else with a brain. Plain clother police officer shoots women. Why not in uniform, when confronting a large crowd. Dirty Democrat run set-up.

    1. Not me.. I’m not deaf… I’m listening to to man talk.. I could care less what the guy signing is doing.. That is just his job to ensure people with a disability can understand this public announcement. I doubt deaf people think he’s funny…

    1. It was a corrupt set-up to make it seem like Trump supporters are bad. Justifies them putting Biden through even though there is massive fraud. Such a corrupt Democrat ploy.

    2. @Intelligent Design the massive fraud is from trump we have proofs of that while none of the opposite. Trump wanted that , he couldn’t care less that people died, he even haven’t spoken about it and won’t. These people are enemies of democracy, everyone supporting trump is anti-Americans.

  3. Hahaha wait wait wait…. all of a sudden y’all care about the injured cops? Lol wow fucken crazy

    1. Stop polarizing. Not every person who hates trump wants police injured. Most of us just want them to stop murdering unarmed civilians out of fear

    1. @Thor Jørgensen 3 of the deaths were unrelated to the protest, 1 death was an ANTIFA female who was shot trying to break into the house chambers.

    2. @Russell Stamey Nope! Her husband spoke in the news already. She went willfully to her MAGA riot. He wondered why she got killed because she was not armed and that she was at the people’s house… her house. She had the right to be there.

    1. Most Dems need This . Insane Dems . Its not over . CREEPY Biden Criminal President. Pardons now for all Americas Traitors .Dumb People. enjoy your Criminal Politicians.

  4. THEY DIDN’T ‘FORCE ENTRY’, THOSE POLICE OFFICERS OPENED THE GATES TO ALLOW THEM INSIDE THE BUILDING!
    IT’S ALL ON VIDEO! Arrest those officers!

    1. They knew protestors were coming for weeks in advance and this was the security they had? Something smells…..

    2. Trump wanted this. He told them “Be there, will be wild!”. He’s going out with a bang, but I wish it were more like Hitler’s ‘bang’

    1. Antifa amongst peaceful protestors. Only a small group who were trying to break things to get in, not the masses.

  5. So are they going to talk about how their own officers helped this terrorist attack? We all saw the selfies.
