  1. 2021……already questionable year

  2. 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.

  3. RICO ACT.

  4. “It is what it is.”

    • @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.

      ​@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.

    • @Quentin Sirjean Does America still have freedom of speech ??

      @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”

  5. Remember the days when getting on one knee was considered disrespectful to America?

    • @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

    • @Adnan Ahmadhello sir, have a great day!

      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.

    • @Atharv Chandel who gives a fucl what other countries think. They are just as corrupt as ours.

    • Atharv Chandel | January 7, 2021 at 9:38 AM | Reply

      @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….

  6. But if it was us‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️

  7. 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

    • @efwno vdea Change the record son. You’re getting to sound really boring. 💤

    • @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?

    • @efwno vdea black lives are in danger trump supporters rioted for no good reason

    2021 will be interesting in the whole world…

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

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

      @efwno vdea this is maybe the most unintentionally hilarious thing I have ever seen.

    Your officers let them in. Talk about it.

      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.

      Outnumbered people trying to decrease the damage that’s it

    • @Intelligent Design Such a corrupt political system, both parties are stupid.

    • Tone Henderson | January 7, 2021 at 10:15 AM | Reply

      @Intelligent Design Yeah because Trump supporters are like children they don’t know any better!

    • Bohemian Sunset | January 7, 2021 at 10:30 AM | Reply

      @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.

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

    • 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

  14. The LACK of security is terrifying. I’ve seen more cops deployed to break up a bar room brawl.

  15. That’s the flyest sign language interpreter I’ve ever seen

  16. 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!

    The rioters in US did the evil things exactly the same as in Hong Kong

    • Christy LeGrand | January 7, 2021 at 9:31 AM | Reply

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

    Ludacris signing like a boss in the corner.

  19. My guy having a silent rap battle and I’m here for it

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