Video shows Capitol rioter hit officer with fire extinguisher


Dramatic new video shows the moment a US Capitol rioter hit an officer in the head with a fire extinguisher during Wednesday’s chaotic siege.

The footage obtained by Storyful from Wednesday’s siege shows droves of violent demonstrators storming past a barricade as US Capitol Police desperately try to keep them corralled on the west side of the building at about 2:30 p.m.

“They broke through, it’s on!” one man is heard yelling as the chaotic clip begins.

Moments later, a rioter tosses the fire extinguisher toward a group of officers below, striking one on the helmet. It’s unclear if the cop who was plunked was Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, 42. He died at a hospital Thursday after being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the melee, two law enforcement sources told the Associated Press.

1. If you watch it in slow mo and full screen, you will see it bounce off the helmet and hit the

officer next to him (with no helmet) right at the base of his skull. He then turns around to see what or who hit him. The original report says that he walked away and collapsed later.

He is in between the guy with the helmet and the guy with the yellow.

2. The sooner law enforcement learns that the MAGAt's are not their friends, the safer they will be.
