JThe more we learn about the storm on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, the darker the picture becomes. Policeman Brian Sicknick was killed with a fire extinguisher while he was on the ground; he was also a private Trump supporter, but he did his duty and tried to defend the Capitol from the intruders.
Police officer Eugene Goodman and his colleagues gave the senators just as much time as they needed to get to safety. We could now find ourselves in a world where the Vice President, House Speaker, and other American officials would have been murdered on cameras.
In this situation questions arise: Were there helpers from within? Did the mob have allies? Two members of the Capitol Police Department have since been suspended.
