    You're president. The Capitol is breached! What do you do? Everyone to the sit room. Orders to DOD, FBI, DHS, etc. coordinated by WH. You're commander in chief; you take command. That's what a president does. Trump watched TV. Wednesday he forfeited any right to remain president.

    Capitol Police Officers Said They Wouldn’t Be Surprised If Members Of Congress Helped Plan The Attack
    “We are the buffer, so that Congress doesn’t have to deal with the mess that they create in their respective districts.”

    Capitol Police Angry Over Failures Ahead Of Attack

    excerpt:

    "After seeing one of their colleagues killed last Wednesday, Capitol Police officers are angry that Republican members of Congress refuse to submit to the security changes put in place since then, and say they wouldn’t even be surprised if some lawmakers helped organize the attack.

    Officers told BuzzFeed News that members of Congress often see security as optional. Even after last week’s deadly attack, some Republican members refused to go through metal detectors, pushing their way past Capitol Police officers.

    “Officers are fuming and there are mumbles of several walking off the job,” one officer with more than 10 years on the force told BuzzFeed News — just as Republicans took to the floor last night to rail against even basic security measures. At one point today, officers set up tables around the metal detectors in an effort to block Republicans from just walking by them.

    One of the officers said it’s not unusual for members of Congress to bring dozens of people at once and insist that visitors be waved past security. Officers’ concerns were echoed by some Democrats who have been speaking out about the state of security at the Capitol, and the potential involvement of members in the planning of the insurrection."

    Capitol Police Angry Over Failures Ahead Of Attack

    excerpt:

    "The three officers, who spoke with BuzzFeed News on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution, lay ultimate blame for what happened on Jan. 6 at the feet of their managers, who they said appeared utterly blindsided by the attack, despite weeks of open planning by the conspirators online. All three officers said their managers put them in an impossible situation on that day.

    “I’m raging. I was involved in the fray and thankfully I wasn’t too severely injured, but I have a coworker who was hit in the back with a pipe, he’s been out since Wednesday,” the third officer said. “I have another coworker that was knocked out cold. We just had an officer commit suicide, and [Officer Brian] Sicknick died. All of this stuff happened and if [management] would have taken appropriate actions, I think that it would have mitigated the situation exponentially.”

    The veteran officer said they were so outnumbered and unprepared that at times he had to stand by helpless as colleagues were viciously attacked. “We came to this door and they were like five or six officers on the other side,” they said. “And it was very heart-wrenching for me because there was nothing that we could do for them. There were literally hundreds, thousands of people on the other side of this door and [the officers are] literally [pinned] against the wall, but we can’t open the door because if we opened the door, they’re going to get crushed and these people are going to pretty much take over.”"

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I'm sure the FBI is reviewing video footage of the day prior to the attack on the capitol
    and matching faces with current suspects and their congressional escorts

    Not only did Trump simply sit and watch it on TV, he whined about how untidy his insurgents looked.

    The new AI crap is intimidating. They can literally follow a single individual walking through riot on video tape, merely by the way they walk. It doesn't matter how you disguise yourself. Using cellphone sized devices, in the near future, they could look through your cloths from across the street. They have bullets that will follow you around the corner, and sound sensors that can track a gunshot to its source anywhere in DC.

    What comes around, goes around, and around, and around. Which is why the good guys win more often. The cops will figure it out, but not until Donald Duck is served for dinner.

    Well to be honest it's the only way the MAGA crowd could have pulled it off --- with help from inside.

    They were too well organized and too well equipped

    She is a perfect example of the idiots running the country. Even in the military she was trained to look for anything suspicious, but the idea that congress itself is suspicious never occurred to her. She cannot see the forest through the trees, because she has no idea the forest even exists.

    Perhaps you think it's not fair to hold police officers to a higher standard?

    Perhaps they shouldn't know better than the average civilian?

    Or is it your contention that it was ok for them to force their way into the US capitol in a clear act of sedition, where a fellow officer was killed in the melee (he was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher) take selfies, then send the pictures back to the department under the caption "we just breached the capitol building"

    Yeah no big deal.

    Some Republican members of Congress have been deliberately bypassing the metal detectors set up by the police after the riot at the Capitol.

    It's not expected that members with that type of attitude would be signing into the Capitol log books the visitors they have been said to have brought in the day before the riot.

    Federal charges filed against two Rocky Mount Police officers


    excerpt:

    "From arrest warrants:

    “Based on the foregoing, your affiant submits that there is probable cause to believe that Thomas Robertson and Jacob Fracker violated 18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(1) and (2), which makes it a crime to (1) knowingly enter or remain in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do; and (2) knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions. For purposes of Section 1752 of Title 18, a “restricted building” includes a posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area of a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service, including the Vice President, is or will be temporarily visiting; or any building or grounds so restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance.

    Your affiant submits there is also probable cause to believe that Thomas Robertson and Jacob Fracker violated 40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D), which makes it a crime to willfully and knowingly utter loud, threatening, or abusive language, or engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place in the Grounds or in any of the Capitol Buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session of Congress or either House of Congress, or the orderly conduct in that building of a hearing before, or any deliberations of, a committee of Congress or either House of Congress.”"
