    I saw video of the fire extinguisher incident, looked like some guy threw it into a group of men struggling to support or break thru a barricade. Could be it hit the cop in the head or people saw it in real time or on video and drew the dots between the extinguisher and the cop's death the next day without knowing for sure if he was hit. I'm sure that video has been examined, hopefully they get the guy who threw it.
    The cop was never hit with anything. It's a lie. They are ****ing liars.

    Kid is really turning into the pearl-clutcher around here. Pretty amusing.

    Reminder, Kid: This is a Senate impeachment trial on the actions of Donald Trump. The specifics of the actions of the protesters is a deflection off topic. This is not a criminal trial. It is not a murder trial. It is about Trump's culpability in the attack on the US Capitol, especially in terms of the timing of the attack, specifically during the Senate's certification of the Electoral College votes.

    Fun fact: After the storming of the United States Capitol, Andrew McCarthy wrote an opinion piece in which he stated on January 10th, "I do think the president has committed an impeachable offense, making a reckless speech that incited a throng on the mall, which foreseeably included an insurrectionist mob."

    Democratic impeachment managers have a duty to explain how Officer Sicknick died.

    NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE
    In its article of impeachment, the Democrat-controlled House alleged that former president Donald Trump, by his “incitement of insurrection,” was responsible for murder. That is an essential rationale for impeaching Trump. It is the most serious accusation that has been leveled. The impeachment article states that, incited by Trump to storm the Capitol and “fight like hell,” Trump supporters “injured and killed law enforcement personnel,” among other heinous acts.

    The accusation about killing law-enforcement personnel refers, of course, to Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick, who was pronounced dead on the night of January 7, more than 24 hours after the siege on the Capitol had ended.

    Adding to the serious but vague accusation in the impeachment article, the Democratic House impeachment managers, who are the prosecutors in the Senate trial, elaborated in their publicly filed pretrial memo (at p. 28): “The insurrectionists killed a Capitol Police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher.”

    Impeachment Alternative: Is a Courtroom the Better Venue for Judging Trump?
    It is noteworthy that the Democrats’ pretrial memo was filed on February 2, nearly four weeks after Officer Sicknick’s death. Yet, during those four weeks, significant questions about the impeachment managers’ murder allegation have arisen. It has been a bedrock principle of American due process for over half a century that if prosecutors are aware of evidence that would tend to show an allegation they made is false, inaccurate, or at least incapable of being proved, they have an obligation to disclose that fact to the accused.

    So what is the Democrats’ proof that Trump supporters murdered Officer Sicknick by bashing him over the head with a fire extinguisher?

    Obviously, ethical and competent prosecutors do not make an allegation of murder in the absence of an investigation. House managers presenting an impeachment case against a former president of the United States have investigative staff, the cooperation of law-enforcement agencies, and access to relevant witnesses and reports, including autopsy reports. If they were not confident about their allegation that Sicknick was brutally killed, it would have been utterly irresponsible and potentially slanderous to make it.

    Despite having time and resources to conduct their investigation, the House managers cite in their February 2 brief a single New York Times article, “Capitol Police Officer Dies from Injuries in Pro-Trump Rampage” — published almost a month earlier, on January 8 (the day after Officer Sicknick was pronounced dead)."

    So many logical fallacies, but yes there were normal people there. Some of them went into the building and are being charged. It's crazy to call them insurgents though.

    Even if it were so, 100% of all QAnon followers are Trump followers.
    But as JRabbit already wrote ... there must have been lots of "normal folks" as well, who followed Trumps "orders" to meet hm in the Capitol

    Also, *if* anyone there thought they were part of an insurrection everyone should agree that they are "insane."

    Only Democrats and QANON followers believe that Trump told people to storm the Capitol.

    Not even sure what I'm being accused of. Do I think there were qanon believers among those attacking the Capitol? Yes. It's a documented fact. Do I think they all were? No, that would be ridiculous. There were plenty of regular folks who were Trump supporters, who showed up because Trump told them to. Also well documented. So WTF are you even talking about, Kid? Please try making some sense.

    Fun fact: This post, #48, is the first time the word qanon has been mentioned in this thread.
