    DC police names second officer suicide after Capitol riot, rails against Army's 'tepid' response

    MPD Acting Chief Robert Contee said Army staff hesitated in sending National Guard, citing 'optics of boots on the ground at the Capitol'

    A second police officer who responded to the U.S. Capitol riot has died by suicide, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department Acting Chief Robert J. Contee told Congress Tuesday.

    Contee, delivering testimony to the House Appropriations Committee, also described a "tepid response" from the Army, which he claimed was concerned over optics of having boots on the ground and was reluctant to send in D.C. National Guard, even as a violent mob overran the protective measures at the Capitol.

    During the height of the incident on Jan. 6, approximately 850 Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) members were at the Capitol to assist U.S. Capitol Police, and by the day’s end, an additional estimate of 250 MPD members had been in the area to directly support the response and aftermath, Contee said.

      Yes sir, sadly, unless he left a suicide note, we have no reason to use this tragedy to shamelessly try to make a political point.

          So, perhaps Shuny should also post...

          Capitol Police apologizes, admits advanced intel showed Congress was target before insurrection

          So much for a spontaneous uprising brought about by a Trump speech.

            Even then it is irrelevant to the question asked. It's more just him trying to play a shame game without ever actually saying it.

              EGGzackly. But it DID put me on to another story, for which I just started a new thread.

              Thanks, Shuny!!!

                You've just explained why the Republicans have to worry about Trump supporters. If they convict Trump, then they won't be able to win back the House or the Senate. And each individual Senator has to worry about Trump supporters, because he knows he can kiss his political career goodbye if he votes to convict.

                Democrats don't have to worry about Trump supporters because they know they won't get votes from them in any case.

                  I vote for censure. they have tried everything else that that they can do to a setting President. Why not take away all his powers a president to.

                  But, here's the really scary part these are the people driving the bus and we're on a nonstop cross county trip.

                    in 4 years if Trump tries to run, they will try to find a way to disqualify him and keep him off the ballot. He will then tell all of his followers to vote for him as a write in. If he wins, the democrats will say write in votes don't count.

                      But they do have to worry about independents and Democrat voters who are simply fed up with their own party. Remember, down ballot Democrat candidates did not do nearly as well as the party was hoping, and after two years of Bumbling Biden destroying our economy, job market, and US sovereignty, I wouldn't be surprised to see voters ready to give control of Congress to the Republicans.

                        Historically speaking, Biden would have to do exceptionally well in governing over his first two years in order to avoid losing the House. (Though the Republican party going full Trump may help him out.)

                        We'll have to wait and see how it goes.

                          At this point, it would be hard for him to do any worse, and it has only been like 10-days.

                            The only thing that could disqualify Trump from running in 4 years would be a conviction by the Senate, which isn't going to happen.

                              How he's doing is kind of a matter of opinion at this point.

                                And the Democrats know that a second impeachment would not accomplish that, but they are so driven by revenge....
