WASHINGTON, D.C. – A police officer has died as a result of a seditious mob attack urged by Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, the fifth person to die as a result of the anarchy.

At approximately 9:30 p.m. January 7, 2021, United States Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty.

Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters.  He returned to his division office and collapsed.  He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.  The death of Officer Sicknick will be investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch, the USCP, and our federal partners.

Officer Sicknick joined the USCP in July 2008, and most recently served in the Department’s First Responder’s Unit.

Four other people died in the chaos, including a former military woman who traveled thousands of miles to participate in the incidents.

Trump is now facing the prospect of possible impeachment as even some moderate Republicans are striking back against their former political master as Democrats weigh their options.

    Conservatives jerks who claim that they’re all for law and order certainty didn’t show it at the capitol.

    Like I have said before if he had told you people to jump off a bridge you would have done it.

    That what cult leaders do. They have their followers do their dirty work. While the their leader stands back, and enjoys the show.

    If we had Democrat/Soros funded “peaceful protests” (REMEMBER FOLKS,THESE WEREN’T RIOTS)earlier this year, than this wasn’t a riot either.

      The riots/rioters you speak of were not attempting to overthrow the federal government nor putting federal elected officials in grave danger, nor were they acting upon orders from the President and his attorney. See the difference?

    could he have been 1 of the 300/375+ pounders with uniforms on? Probably lifting his arms at full length without stuffing in a 1000 calorie donut into his mouth –

        He is probably the same guy who posts about guards getting beat up at prisons and says screw them – they get paid for the job.
