The Stupid Coup
This will probably not come as a shock to Black Lives Matter protesters that the Police were (allegedly) helping the racists:
Six US Capitol Police officers have been suspended with pay, and 29 others have been placed under investigation, for their actions in the January 6 riot, a department spokesman said Thursday.
“Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman has directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline,” department spokesman John Stolnis told CNN.
CNN reported in January that the USCP had placed at least 10 officers under investigation, and two others had been suspended.
One of the suspended officers took a selfie with someone who was part of the mob that overtook the Capitol, according to Rep. Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Ohio. Another wore a “Make America Great Again” hat and started directing people around the building, Ryan said.
Here in Seattle, at least 6 officers are under investigation for participation in the Stupid Coup.
