    1. @Douglas Kriever I hear the PROUD punks..stole his liver and selling parts to a lab.. got arrested and then released

    2. CNN changed a title today after I commented, and it made me look like a racist. If they’re going to change the title, they should erase the comments first!

    1. @Michael Quinn Cops are not on your side, dude. Those days are over. The job of a Cop is to protect the status quo and serve the elites.

    2. @Michael Quinn it’s trickled down to local police as well. Why do you think they’ve become so militarized over the last 20 years?

  1. The title of this video is incorrect and misleading as the FBI isn’t closing in on Sicknick but his murderer. You might want to edit that.

    1. @Chuck Brueck Where did you see the autopsy report? Because it hasn’t been released. So how do you know what it says?

    2. @Chuck Brueck Politifact doesn’t say what you say it does. Politifact doesn’t say the cause of death. That’s because the medical examiner’s report hasn’t been released. Politifact doesn’t mention any autopsy report. Officer Sicknick told his brother that he’d been pepper sprayed twice. His department said he’d been “physically engaging” with the rioters and that he had “injuries sustained while on-duty”. So it’s CLEAR that Trump’s insurrectionists attacked him. As for cause of death, Officer Sicknick’s mother said “We think he had a stroke, but we don’t know anything for sure.” Officer Sicknick’s father said he’d been hit on the head and “ended up with a clot on the brain.” So how do YOU know the cause of death when Officer Sicknick’s parents aren’t sure and don’t have a medical examiner’s report yet?

    3. @Stan Leeger from the politifact article.
      CNN reported Feb. 2 that medical examiners did not find signs that Sicknick had sustained any blunt force trauma.
      Also from that article.
      ProPublica for a Jan. 8 report. Ken Sicknick said his brother texted him the night of the riot that he was in “good shape” but had been pepper sprayed twice. But on Jan. 7, Ken Sicknick and the rest of the family were informed that Brian Sicknick had experienced a blood clot and a stroke.
      Notice the Feb 2nd portion quotes the M.E. which says no blunt force trauma. Which rules out his father’s statement saying he was hit in the head. Also IF he had been hit in the head it stands to reason he would have mentioned that when he texted his brother and told him about getting pepper sprayed. In the same article his brother said the family was told a blood clot AND a stroke.
      The one thing you are correct about is I said autopsy and should have said Medical Examiner.

  2. what happens when half of the population doesn’t believe we have honest elections anymore? what happens when half the population doesn’t believe we can settle our differences at the ballot box anymore? bad stuff happens. i fear for the country my grand kids are going to grow up in.

    1. Watching the crowds of democracy advocates, freedom fighters , patriots and objectors to the corrupt media appointed sleepy fool for president descending on the capital was truly a beautiful sight.

    2. @Taylor Fox Really? You really can’t figure it out? I’ve heard that child predators usually weren’t very smart but, I guess I should’ve known given your prior comments of “if I could, I’d have a different child for everyday of the week” or “so what, it’s just a little hair sniffing”. You know, most regular people feel shame when the commit a shameful act; they don’t brag about it.

    3. @Candice Stevens America is 27th in education globally.

      I think it’s safe to say the 50% of the population that are bringing the national average down (hint…..it isn’t blue states), are literally too stupid to know what the truth is.

    4. Work to publicly shame all republican doners, pressure & boycott them all to choke off their $$$, work to see they wear their party over country seditous stain forever, & start work now to see they are NEVER elected to ANY public office ever again! Coup attempts & sedition must have consequences or they are only dress rehearsals!

    1. I don’t think it was Antifa and if it was why are all these Trump supporters getting locked up? Why do their phone records and social media support them being at the riot? Where are these Antifa members and if they haven’t been caught obviously they’re smart enough to wear masks and not post to Instagram. So antifa got the party that calls other people sheeple to be sheep. Gotta love that sh!t.

      @CoolMan Caravan they purposely let them in to escalate the situation even more

    2. @Dan Nelson Who’s a Democrat, not me. But it’s plain from your comment your vision is blurred by political bias.

    3. @⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ You can’t equate property damage to a literal coup attempt that got a cop murdered & be taken even half seriously Beyond pathetic smh. I’m embarrassed for you & pity your ignorance

    4. @Pete fl You obviously haven’t seen the video of the POLICE inviting the crowd through the gate…!
      I’m NOT ABOUT BIAS just the TRUTH…! SO do your RESEARCH…!

    5. ⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ says:

      @Just Me whats pathetic is burning down a police station WHICH IS GOVERNMENT OWNED, TECHNICALLY AN INSURRECTION.

    1. @Princess Anna wtf are you going on about? Very, very few conservatives are rioters. Conversely, very, very few liberals are rioters. Stop brandishing peoppe in the comment section as something they’re not. There is no war. Just Americans pounding their chests, like we always do. Social media is a very real problem though.

    2. Watching the crowds of democracy advocates, freedom fighters , patriots and objectors to the corrupt media appointed sleepy fool for president descending on the capital was truly a beautiful sight.

    3. @Princess Anna Watching the crowds of democracy advocates, freedom fighters , patriots and objectors to the corrupt media appointed sleepy fool for president descending on the capital was truly a beautiful sight.

    4. @skipnick interesting, that’s not what it says in mine. (I’m on a phone; perhaps it is different on a desktop browser?)

  3. Officer Sicknick died from a stoke – he was send to hospital for tear gas and he was fine in the hospital – at which point he passed away. He’s brother said not to make his death political.

    1. @J M He was not bashed in the head with a fire extinguisher The NY times already recanted their bs story and there was no blunt truama Total bs

    2. @A Plus Powerwashing I know that now, hopefully the court’s able to hash out who killed him, if they have one guy under investigation. Although his blood is on the hands of anyone who attacked the capital

    3. @J M Except there is no evidence of blunt force trauma. His death is totally unrelated to the capital incident. Here’s another kicker, the cop was a trump supporter lol. Can’t tell if you are dense or a disinformation agent.
