    So um you try to attack the capitol with a knife 🔪. Sounds like reconn to me.

      Ridiculous assumption. The amount of personnel there surrounding the Capitol? Recon? You’re kidding right? 🤦

  5. When you bring a knife to a gun fight the results are very predictable.

    • @PhlyinHigh If everyone had a gun and we didn’t have laws maybe more of us would be shooting each other, sounds like fun…lol. This gun violence is turning us into an S- hole country.

    • @PhlyinHigh There are countries that mitigated their gun violence by introducing stricter gun laws and those who have better economies also have reduced crime. We can look to some European countries and also New Zealand, and Australia.

      @PhlyinHigh Australia. You can’t even construct a single, basic English sentence and you attack me for being foreign. Some American Ambassador, you are.

    • @Al Notterbot Im not in a grammer contest on the internet i have nothing to prove to you and guess what violent crime didnt go down in Australia and im not insulting you lmao im a first generation American

    • @Al Notterbot All im saying is our situation is completely different to any other country on this earth plus mass shootings didnt become a problem till the mid 90s the ar15 has been around since the 1950s so we have a social problem not a gun problem

    Knife or not, the car was used as a weapon.

    • There is NO reason to be able to walk into a car dealership with a fistful of dollars & drive off with an untraceable temporary drive out tag in this country.
      The only people who need to have such vehicles are NASCAR drivers & the police

      Now I guess we need to ban cars. That will be the 300th Executive Order signed

    • We need to register cars and require their owners to have a license. Oh, wait …

    • Sakka Suflé | April 2, 2021 at 4:39 PM | Reply

      We need to ban the car show sale loop hole.

    • @Sakka Suflé AAA has too much of a lock on Congress

    Somebody surely wanted to die today.

    • He died, and killed a Capitol Police Officer and wounded another one.

      @GeminII* I edited my original post. I meant to have said ” Wanted”. Had to add the suffix ” ed”:)
      I would have never known I made that goof had you not responded. Thank you Gemini!!

  10. Good thing politicians have barriers and men with guns to protect them. Wish they would extend that courtesy to the rest of the country.

    Let’s Not make Jokes about this as an innocent Police officer lost their life. Just doing his job today on Good Friday? Be respectful to their family as their Easter and Future is now changed forever. We don’t need more insensitivity after four years of Hate mongering being reintroduced as Okay BEHAVIOR! Please remember ONE WORLD We ALL MATTER and we ALL BLEED RED.

  12. How you gonna say you don’t have a motive but proceed to give a motive?! WTF y’all really got goin on?? 🤔

    This person was committing suicide by police

  15. They say, “Give me liberty, or give me death”.
    Right before bringing a knife to a gun fight. Apparently, they forgot they were living in liberty before they decided they would rather die.

    The world is becoming more and more dangerous. It’s sad but i expect to see more of this. That’s what happens when the media causes so much division smh.

    • Rae the Scarecrowlover | April 2, 2021 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      No Freya, this is what happens when conservative men aren’t taught how to take criticism.

    • Project Lamentation | April 2, 2021 at 8:00 PM | Reply

      @Rae the Scarecrowlover people in general can’t take criticism, not just conservatives. Narcissism is really destroying people’s mentality today.

    • @Project Lamentation Narcissism? Are you sure it’s not just plain Insanity from these people. Anyone who takes something unrelated to politics and immediately goes oh it’s the conservatives or it’s liberals doing it, is certifiably not in our reality. Seriously what is she even talking about?

    • Project Lamentation | April 2, 2021 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      @Gage King I’d describe it more as detached from reality to be honest. They are so detached that they will filter out any words that they do not want to hear. So many people do “crazy” things because they believe in their eyes they are doing something right when in reality they are just creating a loop of chaos. It was actually crazy to see some protesters climb onto a firetruck trying to “protest”. Most people not a part of the protest will denounce it, but those people fighting will deem it as “justice”. No matter what political party anyone is in, I hope society realizes that division gets us nowhere.

    • @Project Lamentation Division is certain. Camraderies is not. Even if I raise my hand to these people they will strike it down and call me too much of an issue to cooperate with. Only a small number of those disillusioned will actually be able to be helped

    Looks like Air Bags worked. That is a good news – I thought it was a Toyota, but it is some other brand looks like.
