Capitol riot aftermath: 6 cops suspended, 34 under probe

The Capitol Police have suspended six officers with pay over the storming of the US Capitol and the subsequent rioting in the building on January 6. It has also launched a probe into the actions of 35 police officers on that day. Earlier, the force had suspended two officers in January. One of the two was seen taking selfies with rioters, and another put on a pro-Trump ’MAGA’ hat during the riot.

Can we be honest for a minute? The Jan 6th event was incredibly peaceful compared to the summer of rioting, burning and looting. Why is everyone up in arms over people touring the capitol and not destroying anything? The MAGA people even stayed within the red roped area of the Statuary Hall!

Politics aside, Suspending with pay is just a vacation.

Removing the barriers and allowing people into the Capitol only to claim it was stormed.... Almost seems like a setup.

I wonder if they will talk about how some democrats and commentators are using this situation to call for the drone striking and execution of republicans and trump supporters. Advocating the death of you political opponents, I wonder who that sounds like? (Other then zelots on the far ends of the spectrum)

So why didn't the DC MAYOR have more police there? There was 2 different groups. The ones for the 'assualt' and the other 10,000+ for a peaceful protest march. Is it just me or does the group that had some ANTIFA agitators shouting them on seem just a little too suspect? This group of a few hundred were there on their own and somebody had convinced them to go there. If this were in another country I would wonder if our CIA had something to do with it.

Should they be prosecuted for crossing police lines and breaking into a federal building? To the fullest extent of the law. Were they violent and destructive? Not really. They stopped and spoke with police. Some of them were old ladies. Besides broken glass, there wasn't much damage. Criminals? Yes. Insurrectionists? Give me a gd break.

I wonder if these officers are being “probed” for wrongthink or their actions on the day 🤔. Something about the term probed that makes me think of 👽 probes...

There needs to be a legal investigation into all this. Let the chips fall where they may. Those accountable need to be fingered

These cops better go to jail for treason and supporting white supremacy. Not just put on leave.

Yes, this makes the violence we saw from capital authorities on January 6 seem much more legitimate. /S

Pelosi invited the riot. She had the authorization over the Capitol police. Why isn't she being investigated? Another f-ing career politician who needs to go.

So they are in trouble for not fighting back in this case. But they are in trouble if they fought back in the "peaceful protests". Give me a f-n break! The way things are now I don't blame any policeman that walks away from the job. That being said. To those of you who stay, THANK YOU. YOU ARE APPRECIATED

So they are still on "blame the cops". Wall Street Bets should figure out how to buy stock in "DC crime spike that justifies martial law"
