Capitol Police Issue First Statement On Riots: We Are Conducting A Thorough Review’ | MSNBC

101 Comments on "Capitol Police Issue First Statement On Riots: We Are Conducting A Thorough Review’ | MSNBC"

  1. The Capital police opened the doors for this seditious riot and it’s a travesty against America. They who opened the doors need to be prosecuted

  2. Incident? They mean Insurrection/Sedition against the United States government?

  3. Stop calling them riots. This was a terrorist attack!

  4. Some of the police that were taking selfies along with the riots need to be charged as well.

    • @nathan podsakoff – I agree. Maybe they failed to do their job. Maybe they were in a difficult position that we cannot understand from the 5 second video.

    • Why? they became cops to further the white supremacy and there’s no law against that. Well one they actually have to obey. Trump is their hilter

    • @Deus Sanguinius – I agree, the Capitol Police failed to protect the building. My first thought is, these terrorists should have been shot when they got too close. My second thought is where would we be today if a couple of hundred people died yesterday. In the end, I was not there facing the situation and all I can do is say we are in a position to go after these terrorists including Trump for being their leader. The Trump campaign finances (the money he raised recently) should be seized because he is a terrorist leader.

      @Alasdair Henley Evidently you haven’t heard Trump’s diarrhea from the mouth. He put these Officers in place for his plan that backfired. It’s all in his tweets.

    • @Karaoke Star it was already escalated when they stormed the capitol.

  5. The capital police acted like they were at a tailgate party with buddies. I would fire many of them after the investigation.

    The issue is the cops thought these insurrectionist were their friends since they’ve been counter protesting BLM for months

    • So cops… And fascists… Are on the SAME side??? WHAT?!

      @Jasmin Kelley police reform? Remove the old guard and their generations of children that join LE period.

    • @Eric P they were waiting for the social workers to replace a d take their place

    • @gitgud haters
      There is a difference between the DC police and the capital police. The capital police are federally funded.
      Edit: I will never agree with defunding law enforcement.
      Whatever the capital police failure was yesterday it just shows that they need more and better trained officers.

      @Silverrob Regardless their budget has not been proven to make any difference. A lot of it they don’t need (they have to buy stuff so they can keep getting their budget). Bottom line it’s time to try different solutions in directing where that money goes.

  7. Investigations are not enough. We want people to be FIRED and prosecuted for what they’ve done to allow & assist it to happen.

    • Patrick Kilduff | January 7, 2021 at 2:24 PM | Reply

      plus, the people doing the ‘investigating’ just invited terrorists into the Capitol and took selfies with them…so, spare me this crap.

      @Jesus Christ, Emmanuel , God with us . well,JC you’re just delusional. Help is on the way

    • btw, inciting people and having corrupt cops not standing in their way (or even helping them) – this is a common russian kgb provocation… they used it in Ukraine, Odessa, year 2014… in that particular event, pro-russian mob attacked peaceful rally of Ukrainians, shooting them with guns while literally hiding behind police line… there were casualties, Ukrainians started to attack, in the end dozens of pro-russians died, which caused wave of hatred inside Russia and helped putin to get volunteers to send to war in Ukraine… Odessa chief of police simply escaped the country after that event.. Americans should be happy an “accidental” bloodbath didn’t happen at the Capitol… but watch out, 2 weeks you have this traitor president… and investigate police and those people not wanting to send national guard to help… is is very, very serious now, trump will activate pretty soon again

    • How much more evidence do they need?! How much of an investigation is *actually* necessary? We *KNOW* by name on video! The senators and congressmen that for 4 *YEARS* fluffed the tiny would be king and assisted in creating the terrorist cult that happened yesterday! They along with T×××× Need to be removed and brought to justice now!

    • Starting with Biden and Harris

  8. Major failure of capital police!

  9. A bunch of people taking over the capitol building isn’t a riot. It’s an act of treason.

    • @Thunk Junk moron

    • @Timmy Truth WHAT is wrong with you ? Forgot your antipsychotic meds traitor?

    • @Devo Because there is no evidence. they already re counted in Georgia and Wisconsin. Funny trump wants black counties re counted isn’t it? Trump wanted to stop the count when he was ahead and throw out the votes when he was behind, Get a brain!

    • @m jones yes recount after recount, but no audit to see if the votes are legit. Are you telling video evidence is not good enough for something like that? Get a brain.

      You probally believed in Russia Russia.

    • @Chris Albert priceless

      And Capitol Hil security collaborated with terrorists. Traitors all of them.

    • @Devo how deep does this stupidity run in Trumpers?

    • @Joshua Sweetvale I saw some but I also saw examples of heroes trying to stand their ground. One man on a stairway, one cop, against a mob of people and I’ll be darned if he didn’t give everyone behind him enough time to seek shelter. To me that’s a hero, so please be careful when you say all of them. I think that’s going to become a phrase we need to hear less and less of.

      @Jean Alton Hey, stop being reasonable. This is a YouTube comment section.

      And the head of the terrorist was trump his son and Giuliani with the help of some of the police! In my opinion they should be investigated by the FBI not by themselves! If it was the BLM they would have acted differently! But these were the trump loving people so no justice for them only a pat on the shoulders! Disgusting bunch of racists!

  11. The selfie cop needs to go!!!!!!

  12. The police are investigating themselves? Cool, I’m sure they will be thorough.

  13. Start with the police who OPENED THE DOORS and took selfies with them. Time to face reality, you have sympathisers of this coup attempt on your force.

  14. NONE questioned the behaviour of the “police” who were taking selfies with the Fine People. Like wtf

  15. I want to know if people are going to prison for this

  16. There are clips of them opening barricade for the cultists

    This was a terrorist attack, we need to find every single one them.

  18. “Don’t worry, they are white. We will just let them tire themselves out.”

    • Does *BLACK* lives matter?

    • Savid Watkins | January 7, 2021 at 3:01 PM | Reply

      Bias – they treated BLM differently
      I am sorry the police force did a bad job !
      Taking selfies with the terrorists

    • @Craftsman who cares? Whatcha gonna do?

    • @Silverrob I’m gonna go eat chicken and play rook ,but know this it s not over what you gonna do with biden gas prices all ready up ,

    • @Craftsman
      I’m going enjoy my upcoming birthday and become an activist for inclusivity.
      I also inteed to encourage the demise of the ‘Good Old Boy Network’ that has been the standard of politics and politicians throughout our Nation’s existence.
      Y’all come back now, yah hear?

      And rising gas prices are nothing new. I remember when gas prices topped a dollar a gallon and folks were loosing their s¿Ít,

  19. This was an ACT OF TERROR, not a riot.. EXPLOSIVES WERE FOUND, REMEMBER?

    • @Trump Lost nope I didn’t see a terror attack. I seen peaceful protest.

    • @Trump Lost just like all the dem’s did with BLM

    • @Allen Edward If u don’t lie to urself, u will never get a night’s sleep 🛌.. Ur life is a lie and I get it 👍

    • @Trump Lost lmao definitely. You know me so well, thank you for your kind words. I haven’t slept in 4 years. Ever since killery Clinton lost. It’s been so rough for me and the other killery fans. We almost had him in peaches a couple times. So close. We’re about to do the 25th in peaches n mint soon. That darn Nancy pole-ski almost had him.

    • Federal building breached by people with bulletproof vests, guns and explosives. Domestic Terrorists. Then add trying to overturn the will of The People by ‘taking over’ the Capitol, that’s insurrection. Terrorist Insurrectionists. Just replace that with the word “Republican” on ballots from now on so nobody’s confused

  20. “We will thoroughly investigate ourselves, before we find we did nothing wrong.”
