  1. Putin’$$$$ biggie mistake , underestimating his enemy ; True American’s.
    R.I.P. true American heroes , Capital police officers

    1. @Al Jirou do you live in reality because that’s a giant load of bs. You make a good parrot

    2. @Wesley Trout Assuming you’re a fellow American, you need to learn the first thing about Russian espionage ongoing in our country. It’s a very serious problem, bud.

    3. @Al Jirou You realize that collusion isn’t the only possible type of espionage, don’t you? The Russians have been interfering with our democratic processes on multiple fronts, that’s not even debatable. It has been proven over and over, and many people have gone to prison for it, buddy.

  2. IF the two senior Police at the Capitol who resigned have NOT been questioned – they are the ones the COMMITTEE needs to hear from

    1. @Zach Schaefer What?! Was that supposed to make sense? You’re taking up Oxygen for others that’s for sure.

  3. If I had worked as a cop, on that day, and went through what most of them went through, what could make me even entertain suicidal thoughts, would be how the very people I put my life on the line for (most GOP members of Congress ) are now trivialising the incident and almost denying how dangerous it was. Such denial and downplaying is heart wrenching.

    1. @Ven Nwankwoagba There are a few more in this comment section, but they are hard to find! I really appreciated reading your well written comment! I have had P.T.S.D. and been suicidal (in the past for me, thank goodness) and your understanding is spot on.

    2. @The World That makes complete sense. The commonality of trauma and betrayal by the government and citizens they were risking their lives for. Utter disillusionment. Its tragic. But at least the majority of US citizens believe and support these officers. Hopefully they get all the support they need so no others take their lives.

    1. @greg hill Agree but that means you don’t understand if you can’t explain something in your own words.

    2. @donnie henderson Hours of hand to hand combat, without adequate backup; then sent back to work too soon PLUS access to a firearm = Increased risk of suicide.

    3. @j s hand-to-hand combat? Is there any video of that? What about the days and days and weeks and months of BLM antifa riots? That was a lot worse how come no one committed suicide then?

  4. I find it fishy they’re all dying of suicide? Sounds like a cover up i guess you didn’t want them to talk.

    1. They’re not committing suicide. They’re being “suicided” by the same people who tried to “H@ng Pence!”

    2. @marushka Or they feel guilt for murdering Rosanne Boyland and Ashli Babbit. Capitol police murdered two unarmed protesters. Shame.

    1. @Todd R ‘I’m sure you are correct but I’m saying that being betraied by The very system and people you swear to protect has a profound on effect and knowing this was your job and profession can be devistating..,, I suspect what you are saying is true… either way I think they are responsible as if they had put done it..refering to them as actore is beyoun belief ….

  5. *suicided

    We all know this isn’t a coincidence… politicians and media aren’t slick anymore

    1. @Christy C Sims yeah a leading cause, but 4 people from the same department and the news blaming it on Jan 6th. Those guys were definitely murdered by democrat party. The are as bad as Stalin or Hilter when it comes to political killings. Exaggerating but they do using killing as a tool, ask hilary Clinton lol

    2. @Taylor Jensen You don’t know if any of the Portland did commit suicide – he just said it is under reported. Insurance probably doesn’t pay out for suicide

    3. @Christy C Sims Shame on me? SHAME ON ANDREW CUOMO FOR SENDING A BUNCH OF SICK PEOPLE INTO NURSING HOMES!!! And if you really want to go there, SHAME ON CHINA FOR LETTING IT ESCAPE, NOT SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT IT, LYING ABOUT IT, ALLOWING IT TO SPREAD ACROSS THE WORLD, AND KILLING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, HOW ABOUT THAT FOR SHAME?!

    4. @Christy C Sims you completely misinterpreted my post. I suspect foul play. I think its highly unlikely all 4 of those officers comitted suicide..Someone is trying to silence them. just my opinion.

  6. Perhaps we also shouldn’t be blaming cops every time they have to take the life of a criminal. Everyone is easy to point fingers at the Capital Riot and side with with the law, but not when it doesn’t fit your narrative they are the bad guy. Put politics aside and support our men and women who serve to protect. Don’t fall trap to the 10 second tik toks that fail to show why they pulled out their gun in the first place.

    1. @randy emenhiser thanks all the dead police officers appreciate proper Grammar and sentence structure

  7. “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action” ian flemming

    1. @Hooligan’s Heroes Pfft. I haven’t mentioned the trumpster. I care not a jot about him. You on the other hand seems to have your head firmly up his you-know. Oh, and BTW, you need to learn how to insult people properly – your attempt was weak sauce, only trumpist morons think that one is a sting 😉

    2. I Love The 80’s While searching for evidence, those same 4 police officers came across an envelope of photos of Chuck Schumer banging Nancy Pelosi, it was so disgusting, they killed themselves because they couldn’t undo what they saw.

    1. Why is the MAGA crowd going to get them. Its not going to be antifa. These officers are heroes to them they stopped the Fascist movement.

    1. I don’t feel that way but I don’t recognize this country I was born in, raised in, educated and worked in.
