US Attorney's office opens federal murder probe into Capitol police officer's death: reports


US Attorney's office opens federal murder probe into Capitol police officer's death: reports

Federal authorities will open a murder investigation following a Capitol Police officer's death after Wednesday's riots at the Capitol building, according to multiple media reports.

The U.S. attorney’s office has opened a federal probe into the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, several law enforcement officials told CNN and ABC News.

Sicknick died Thursday evening after he responded to a violent attack on the Capitol building by a mob who sought to halt Congress's certification of the 2020 election results.

"The entire USCP Department expresses its deepest sympathies to Officer Sicknick’s family and friends on their loss, and mourns the loss of a friend and colleague," a U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) spokesperson said Thursday night.


Sicknick had sustained injuries while on duty Wednesday while "physically engaging with protestors," according to a statement from Capitol Police.

"He returned to his division office and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," the statement continued.

3. Good...I've been disturbed by the mealy-mouthed reporting on this

"He died later of injuries sustained during the events," and similar weak statements. I mean, I know why journalists have to phrase it this way, since the Capitol Police are not releasing much information about the case, but a police officer was murdered by insurrectionists during the takeover of the US Capitol. You'd think the language might be a bit stronger.

4. Case in point




He was "was injured while physically engaging with rioters in the Capitol and later passed from his injuries." He was killed by rioters! What is this shit? This is a forty-two year old man looking to be in good health. He was murdered by insurrectionists! The supposed "Blue Lives Matter" "Thin Blue Line" bozos killed a cop! What is this "he was injured and later died of his injuries" shit? Good God! Fuck off.
