Capitol Police Complicit in Capitol Insurrection Riot?

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   8 comments

Were the Capitol Police complicit in the takeover of the US Capitol building? It looks that way. Just like the Benghazi Embassy, four Americans were killed. There must be an investigation that looks at every monitoring camera, every Capitol Police officer. And those who enabled the seditious rioting insurrectionists should be fired without benefits and charged as accomplices and given jail time.

ABC News asked the question, How did pro-Donald Trump protesters get into Washington DC's heavily guarded Capitol building?

They answered the question; Some Capitol police let people through barricades and include videos, in the article, showing police moving the barricades out of the way for the protesters.

Congressional Rep Pramila Jayapal said that she believes that there was betrayal within the ranks of the police.

Among the protesters were Oath Keepers-- right wing extremist Trump supporter police. It is not unreasonable to assume that there were Oath Keepers among the Capitol police on Duty. John Dean offered one explanation.

CNN puts the words "Massive Breach of U.S. Capitol Raises Questions About Security Failures" on their chiron as Terrance Gainer,the former chief of the U.S. Capitol Police, argued that it was not fair to compare the treatment of the White Supremacists who stormed the Capitol. But I don't buy it. The response was massively different to BLM. And I don't buy the assumption of CNN, that these were security failures. The barriers were moved out of the way. There weren't nearly as many police ready to deal with the threat and, given the information John Dean provides, we must suspect that this was an intentional act by some of the police, allowing the protesters into the capitol building. There is even a photo showing a Capitol Police officer taking selfies with the rioters.

As far as comparing the police treatment of the rioters to their treatment of BLM, Caitlin Johnson commented,

And Joe Scarborough lambasted the Capitol Police, saying, "Why are you known as badasses and then open the F*cking door for them?"
