Dayum that is a clear video of the shooting. Up until now I couldn’t figure out where the shot came from.
Me too. I initally thought it was a bit reckless that the person shot from down the hall given that there were cops behind her, which underscored just how dangerous it was that he must have had no other choice.
Turns out they had brought every piece of furniture they could to create a barricade, stood just a foot away pointing a gun, and she STILL thought it was a good idea to try to climb through. That was a good clean shot, I'm glad no one else behind her was in danger and I feel bad for the guy who had to kill her.
And the guy in blue next to her said they were warned by the guy holding the gun.
Ultimately that woman died by caring too much about Trump's ego being hurt. What a way to go... draped in a Trump flag, no less. I can't imagine how mentally dense you have to be to reach the point where you think it's a good idea to breach a heavily barricaded door inside the US Capitol building with a highly trained guard literally three feet away protecting the entrance with a weapon drawn giving firm verbal warnings not to make any further advancements.
It was reported that she was a 14-year veteran, which makes it even more ridiculous. Like, her tactical training didn't kick in telling her that this was a really bad idea?
Edit: I apologize to all of you for my complete ignorance of specific military nomenclature/vernacular- I understand from these comments that not everyone gets “tactical” training per se. The crux of what I meant is that you’d think someone w/ANY military service or training would know better than to do this. Also, the “chair force” comments caused me to choke on my beverage during lunch break.
Agreed. Not a dig on her, but somehow it also didn’t “kick in” she was attempting to overthrow her own constitution she had once sworn to defend.
I just can’t understand any of this, and the accountability should start with trump.
UPDATED: to clarify my comment
What’s in my opinion is really scary about this is that she probably thought that she was defending it. She was told my a man in power who she trusted that our democracy was being compromised and that insurgents were taking over and even though there was practically no evidence she thought that she had to do something and it ended up being this. I’m really scared for the future when the next man who wants to be dictator comes along and gains the trust of these people but I think he won’t be as tactless and stupid as trump is
Yeah, I can't believe this went this far. Like we're screwed if someone with more than two braincells tries to enact a coup
That’s how cults work.
She was also a twelve year Air Force vet trained in security.
Should have known better.
That's what moronic conspiracy belief does to your brain, if you let it.
Seeing Trump's followers LITERALLY dying for Trump is the same as seeing Osama bin Laden's followers dying for him. Tell me what's the difference?
The rest of us normal people just vote and plan stay at home to watch the inauguration on the TV. Haven't heard of any Hillary supporters dying in Capitol because she lost 2016 election, so yeah....
This will be in history books forever, what's their comeback on literally dying for a losers ego? Hillary supporters crying? Crying is at least normal and understandable compared to storming a sacred democratic hall and dying so that Senate can skip the rest of their planned objections and speed up the confirmation process?
This guy is gonna go though hell in the next few weeks for doing his damn job and holding the line when so many other defensive measures failed and or literally let them through and posed for selfies.
Edit: because I keep having to clarify I don't mean he is going to face criminal procecution. I know he was doing his job. I am worried about retaliation from the MAGA crowd against him and his family if his name is ever publicly released.
I think that is also part of the problem. By this point they've breezed past so many police, some of them armed, and no one really made a concerted effort to stop them. When she finally meets someone who is giving a serious order to stop she doesn't believe they'll do anything.
I think there is a case to be made about finding which officers were complicit in allowing the intruders access to the building and prosecuting them.
Had the rest of them been as apathetic the insurectionists could have potentially killed top members of the American government. It could have been much worse than it was.
Shit I've seen heavier police response actions against a bunch of drunk hockey fans venting after playoff eliminations.
If the vice president was in the chamber's, then the one who shot her would have been Secret Service right?
The man was in a black suit, more than likely SService. Also, reports say that man was the last line of defense to accessing 150 lawmakers including Pence, according to LA Times
If true, that’s also outrageous. At that point why are the police even there? We have a few guys with hand guns and they were the only thing preventing a decapitation strike at the US government
I imagine the orders for the guy who shot were to hold the barricade line at all costs. The cops outside were to try to maintain some control of the corridor.
From what I've seen people consider him to be a bit of a hero. Did his job to the T, no one else injured and protected the people he was supposed to.
And apparently they were verbally warned
i mean, a gun literally pointed at your head and a barrier build at the doors is somewhat of a sign that they should not try to breach
Shows that it was a calculator shot too, as it was an upward angle and not directed at the crowd behind her. Unfortunate someone was stupid enough to try to breach the barricade.
Me either. That man put it all on the line for his country and is a true patriot. Kudos to him for fulfilling his duty responsibly and returning to cover to keep peace.
The guy in the blue shirt next to her said in an interview later that the man with the gun warned them not to break past the barrier.
There's another video that shows everybody scream "he's got a gun!" the moment the officer whips it out.
Naturally, most people get away from the door and disperse. Another person appears to gesture the girl to get down from the door.
She decides she's in a blockbuster action movie and continues to try to force her way into the hall and for that, she wins a Darwin Award.
Footage is shown in full at around 1:23:15.
“A number of police and secret service were saying 'get back, get down, get out of the way'. She didn't heed the call and as we kind of raced up to grab people and pull them back they shot her in the neck and she fell back on me.”
It’s all fun and cosplay til someone dies
I really think this is what happened. They thought it was a game or a joke. They didn’t realize that they were literally committing sedition and were putting their lives in danger.
I’ve been saying it too. Look at all they’ve gotten away with this past year. They really didn’t think they’d be shot. Hell the cops out front let them in and were taking selfies inside with them. OFC they thought they were bulletproof.
I’d say they would learn, but now they are saying it was “antifa” and other bullshit and she was a victim. Blah blah blah. We need to convict the ones arrested for the maximum amount and deny them all things in life. Maybe then. Though history shows they’ll just be martyrs for the continued cause.
The Secret Service DOES NOT FUCK AROUND WHEN PROTECTION THEIR ASSIGNMENT.
They do not de-escalate. They do not retreat. They give one warning, if they feel it's appropriate, then they eliminate the threat.
Cops play these games with rioters because when they fuck up they have to answer to themselves. Secret Service really don't play these games because when they fuck up they gotta answer to the DHS. Secret Service agent Joe isn't going to have a good time if he just lets some rioter in and they beat on Mike Pence.
Police may have been impotent (edit for justified correction: COMPLICIT) but fear the man in a suit with his gun out.
Then there is the legacy angle. Does anyone want the shame of not performing your duty and being put into the history books as the Secret Service guy that didn't do his job that got a bunch of Senators killed?
I've been thinking a lot about how his use of force was, or wasn't, justified. But then I remembered the FBI arrested all those psychos who were planning on kidnapping the MI governor, and/or holding public executions at the capital once they took it.
This agent was right to use deadly force. The mob frenzy was real.
Every comment in this thread is like "the cops warned them", but here I am thinking...what did you expect when you try to rush a police barricade with a gun pointed at you?
question... who was those guy with the gun in the background that's screaming..."shot fire!"??
Aren't they the police? or ... are they simply they cosplaying, like someone said earlier?
I don't know, but there is a video of that first cop coming up the stairs during that monent. If you could find that video, you could probably find out.
Aaaaand he lied. No one is pulling anyone back in any video I've seen.
He also admitted in his interview that he wasn't sure why he was even in DC in the first place - he "had heard" fraud had possibly occurred in the election but he wasn't sure and had no proof which means he should storm the Capitol?
Man, i hate it when i'm just mindlessly wandering around and get swept up by a crowd and end up at the front lines of a violent insurrection. Wack.
Yeah, a smart person would have realized the source of the claim provided no proof, and stopped there. By the time he was at those doors, he has already taken countless steps where it was possible for self-realization, but didn't.
Just went through her Twitter feed. Her head was probably so filled with delusions, that she was fighting for her country by some deep state whatever the fuck... it’s honestly kind of sad.
Died for being an idiot I suppose.
Propaganda is one hell of a drug.
Oh well, hey, Georgia just elected their first black senator.
Blue shirt guy seconds after the gunshot
Lol. This is pretty much spot on. These people were morons. Internet tools. Thinking that you can push past police barriers, open the door to the US Capitol, chase Capitol guards up stairs (storming the Capitol...that's what this was). And somehow...by some lack of preparation, you literally make it to the CONGRESSIONAL CHAMBER doors where barriers have been constructed impromptu to prevent you from breaking in. And FINALLY after all that...you see your first gun drawn on you. In my head, she along with all the other terrorists really thought they would've been given the red carpet, and with the lack of defense of the Capitol, she probably thought with every stair she climbed, with every doorway she walked through, with every police officer she brushed by....that all those commands were just charades and that she was literally gonna be allowed to walk into the chambers...like, she was empowered by the countless amount of barriers she advanced through unopposed....AND FINALLY, at the last barrier, they got serious about the security.
She got what she deserved and died believing a lie. These people were internet tools, and they were given WAY too much freedom yesterday. But there is a point where you can't go any further. That doorway. That shot. The death. That stopped them in their tracks. They weren't there in seriousness, because you can see their cowardice show through the second the shots ring out....don't shoot, don't shoot...we are just here to storm the Capitol...don't shoot....like...you're gonna get shot if you keep pushing the police back to the chamber doors (where congressmen/women WERE STILL GATHERED IN THE GALLERY). They were there in jest, all with iPhones filming to get their clicks, thinking they had the "right" to break into the Capitol and that they were wearing an invisible shield of armor. They aren't freedom fighters. They are internet and Twitter tools. And yeah, you can see the gravity of the situation hit them all in the face when they were finally confronted at one of the last barriers just outside the chamber doorway. Shows they realized they finally hit the end and clearly went too far in this pedantic and empty charade of a "revolution."
There is a point of no return. And the second you enter into the Rotunda of the Capitol building...you've reached it. You start climbing over barriers with Secret Service details with guns drawn on the other side with the Congressional chamber at their back, with Congressmen still inside....after you chased police through hallways and climbed the stairwells, stalking behind them...you're gonna get shot when it's the last barrier where USSS have placed chairs in a doorway for an impromptu barrier because there is nowhere else to go...they don't have to de-escalate a thing at that point. The fact that rioters and terrorists were on that floor breaking through barriers was threat enough to pull the trigger, regardless if they were visually armed or not.
Zero remorse for her or anyone else who went into that building with iPhones recording and selfie sticks extended.
Quite surprised the Capitol Police showed so so so so so much restraint inside that building. But there is a point of no return and those internet tools gladly pushed past it with zero regard. One bullet to the chest was a very very mild result here. They were very lucky they weren't mowed down.
'Quite surprised the Capitol Police showed so so so so so much restraint inside that building."
What's interesting is that you can see a formation of Capitol Police in gear just behind the few insurrectionists who were directly against the barricade. They didn't apprehended her or the others at the barricade.
The guy guarding the door looks the be wearing a suit and white collared shirt, implying Secret Service.
Even at the doors of the Chamber, the Capitol Police are remarkably restrained in their actions.
It is only a single Secret Service agent who draws a line: "no further".
These insurrectionists got away with a whole lot of fucking around before they faced any consequences.
damn you see the man pop her clearly in this one
Sad as fuck... get yourself killed over some dumb shit, like this.
I thought that getting Corona at a Smashmouth concert would be the most embarrassing way to die, but here we are.
Died draped in a trump flag
True this lady had a family and she goes and does dumb shit like this for TRUMP.
Apparently her husband didn't even know she'd gone to DC.... :/
She lives in San Diego, CA. she flew to DC to join the rally and her husband didn't know she was gone. Did she play hookie at work. Go with friends? So many questions.
Who the fuck does this, who is so indoctrinated they abandon their husband and children, to fly across the entire country, and think forcing their way into the capitol building where our elected officials are at work is going to be just ok, all good, they will just let us all in and then what... they yell at the politicans until they are red in the face?
No, this mother and wife was going to be part of a mob that would have lynched them if left to their own devices. We would have had dead bodies of the people we voted for hanging on the white house lawn if these crazy fucks were left at it.
Totally fucking insane how any one person can get to that point.
Get inside and do what? You saw the photos of the one who brought huge zip ties? Some of these terrorists had more than yelling in mind
I commented about this, im sure it's buried, but I just can't believe that this woman chose donald fucking trump over her husband and children. It's mind blowing.
Edit: i briefly looked at her horrible twitter. It's unclear if she actually had kids, but still...
I doubt Trump will even acknowledge her death unless advised to.
Yup, was he at the door to the chambers?
Did his job today. They are there to protect our elected officials. Even the ones we don’t care for
this is the truest comment.
It was nothing short of treason, my only regret is that he had to do it. You know if he didn’t they would of flooded through.
100% She was leading the charge at that point. Earlier police intervention and adequate security could’ve prevented the her death. Why would she take warnings seriously at that point after they just walked in with little resistance?
It’s absurd on all fronts, but regardless the secret service is essentially the modern praetorian guard, their job is not to fuck around, it is to neutralize threats to our democracy and those we appoint to it. What’s insane is that it took that long.
And I support the use of force in this case. Even if the person he’s protecting was someone I would personally never vote for and possibly despise. If they were elected through our legal democratic process, they should be protected from those attempting to undermine our democracy.
It’s one of the very few times I support the use of force by police
Yeah I've been curious about the angle this whole time how no one seemed to know where the bullet came from and how it looked like you could see the bullet hole appear in the wall in other angles. This clears up a lot about the situation for me
At least somebody did their job
+1 for this, watching the Capitol Police basically wandering around among these fucking terrorists taking selfies is pretty god damned enraging. That woman died for the fucking biggest piece of shit on the planet, what a loser.
He was gloved up and everything, I though it came from the other side
That dude wasn't fucking around.
That shot was a very good deterrent... You gotta realize that if she had gotten through. It would have emboldened the rest to follow her, thus storming the few guards protecting the chamber and the rest of the individuals needing evacuation. That one good shot literally just stopped their whole momentum.
I think it’s possible he saved a congressman/woman’s life. Can you imagine if that mob would have gotten ahold of someone outspoken against Trump?
Well they did bring zip ties and a cross soooooo
They were literally chanting "Hang Mike Pence" as they occupied the Capital Building.
There was a fucking noose out there strung up and ready.
Don't forget the gallows they built outside.
It's all fun and games until someone gets shot in the lung.
Everybody's got a plan until they get shot in the neck.
Literally there to protect the lives of our elected officials. If one came through, it was over. As much as I hate to see anyone lose their life, the other option was mass violence on every official behind that door
Agree. It was bad enough they got this far into a sitting Congress without meeting any real resistance. Where were those armor cladded cops up till then ? Why was it left to what looked like secret service to make the call to lethally deter the terrorists?
And like many have pointed out, the fact the protesters had not been met with actual resistance from police up to this point likely had them feeling pretty invincible by this point. Should’ve never gotten this far, but I’m glad this man was there. Even if he was protecting the most hated member of congress
And they all very quickly found out...
Looked like secret service judging by weapon choice, attire, and willingness to put a bullet in someone for crossing the barricade stone cold like that.
Considering there were cops stood right behind the woman I’d agree
she literally bleeds from her mouth, that was brutal
I've heard getting shot can fuck you up.
Deadly even, in some cases.
Literal definition of "Fuck around and find out."

That's the depressing part. She had to know with her military experience that once you get past the civilian guard the secret service doesn't do de-escalation they eliminate threats just like any military personnel protection high value VIP's or Command.
Edit: I'd like to clarify I was not commenting on her training I realize she could have known Jack shit about combat etc. But you should know that command and VIPs are protected with lethal force thats not a training issue thats a common sense issue.
She probably wasn't thinking. With all the shouting and adrenaline, she probably thought it will be ok to breach the obstacles like before when they entered the bldg. It turns out this perimeter line was secret service perimeter and they shoot to kill.
Oh and the guy with the "Camp Auschwitz" T-shirt.... Yeah.
A totally proud boy.
It's fitting that they're called proud boys and not proud men
For those wondering, it's the skinny guy with the big beard at 0:34
God just... what did they think would happen? There's a guy dressed like a member of the Secret Service on the other side of a door barricaded with furniture holding a gun up shouting orders. I just dont see how you feel safe even in a group to continue bashing the door in. You're in the Capitol building, you're already where you aren't supposed to go and they are trying to go further against armed guards of the US government. Just what in God's name is going through their heads
A 9mm bullet
Was likely a 40. Government armed guards (secret service included) are require to use 40+ caliber handguns. It's for a kinda dumb reason to.
Fun fact for the day.
Edit: clarified some stuff
There is a reason behind it, in 1986 the FBI had a shoot out in Miami (called the Miami-Dade Shootout) where the 9mm was used as well as other lower than .40 were used. They suffered losses and reviewed what service pistol to use and settled on the .40 as it had a superior stopping power to recoil tradeoff. And other agencies followed suit.
Which is funny because the Miami-dade failure had nothing to do with the choice of weapon, and more to do with the fact that the cops couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with them. Turns out a nerf gun and a .50 have the same effectiveness when they’re going a foot over the criminal’s head.
After she gets shot and starts fading away forever, and the camera pans around to show a sea of neckbeards filming with selfie sticks... That’s some dark shit.
Actual black mirror shit.
They didn't care she was shot and dying. They cared about the views they'll get. The attention they'll get online. Fucking disgusting.
Her getting shot didn't bother me much, it was her choice. But yeah, that was really disturbing, like vultures.
When it comes to wanting to get shot for the stupidest fucking reason on the planet, she did everything right.
"let's break into the capitol building and charge on a barricade a man with a gun told us not to charge on"
Yeah I'm sorry, there's no fucking cure for stupid. She was a terrorist and met a terrorist's death.
Imagine this being how you die... you think you’re about to lead a valiant charge but you get dispatched and the only thing behind you is a bunch of neck beards recording your last breath with selfie sticks
What a sad day
Shot to death surrounded by incel tellitubies. What a way to go.
The auschwitz hoodie is a real special touch.
Trumpet morons: We're not racists man. We're not bigots. We are just patriots.
Also Trumpet morons: auschwitz hoodies, confederate flags, white power symbols and signs
Klandalf the Grey
Add on too that there is now clear recorded evidence for the world to see of exactly how stupid your last moments before your death were, this was no martyr type of death, this was you going against clear instruction and then the moment the result of your actions hit you in the neck you got the surprised pikachu look on your face, I'd love to know what she was really thinking at that moment.
I'm not ridiculing this woman, I'm not even from the U.S but that is what I take from the video, its your typical play stupid games, win stupid prizes outcome.
Its so dumb, even if they did 'storm' the room, then what..? Stand there taking selfies before you get hungry, need a piss or turfed out? What was the plan? So fucking dumb and now this person is number one dumbass for the world to see..
I'm not ridiculing this woman
I'm not ridiculing this woman
I am. She's a fucking idiot to an indescribable degree and it cost her her life.
Newest winner of the Darwin awards (in this case awarded posthumously).
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
And an asswipe with a "camp auschwitz" shirt.
And all of her comrades where like “oh fuck this shit where’s the exit?”
Imagine serving 14 years, 4 combat tours only to finally come home, spend time with your husband and kid, then abandon them to die in the name of the shittiest president to ever exist.
She and every other Capitol terrorist are a bunch of losers.
And Trump once said Americans who died in wars are losers....
nothing but this needs to be the top comment. like wow, the camera literally swings from a woman dying to a milling bundle of bearded convention goers
And just like that, her hindsight kicked in.
Imagine telling that woman back in like 2010 or so that she was going to die inside the US Capitol building being draped in a Donald Trump flag while committing terrorist acts all because Trump's ego wouldn't let him accept the fact that he wasn't re-elected to a second term as the US President. Probably not the timeline she saw coming.
If you told her she would die fighting at the capitol at an attempted coup she would be sure she was one of the defenders instead of attackers.
they still think like that (she doesn't anymore but they do)
Its brutal to think about her losing her life for something so outrageously retarded. But.... her beliefs and ideals were probably not going to change anything for the betterment of the world as a whole so I cant be too saddened by the loss of life. Someone was pointing a gun.... what she think he doing that for? To look cool?! Snitches get stitches and dummies get shot in the neck while committing domestic terrorism on the capital building.
Hindsight really is .20 caliber.
LMFAO bullet puns are a cheap shot.
Its ballistic anyone would make a joke about it.
It's sure bound to trigger some folks
Dying for a meaningless cause, surrounded by military LARPing neckbeards screaming Call of Duty soundbites like "Active Shooter" and "Where'd they hit you?", filming you breathe your last breath with the flash on, clueless about any sort of first-aid/triage.
She played a stupid game and got what was coming but that is a fucking sad death.
In the longer version you can hear them scream MEEEEEDDIC! like it's Team Fortress 2.
I need healing.
Could have sticky jumped around the building and flanked that SS guy.
"No one play demo man because he is black"
Ah, yeah, guess they're stuck.
imagine dying so horribly for trump.
Seemed like it would be quite quick for her it's humiliating but not like she cares now
Someone just got shot, they pan the camera round and there is about 20 neckbeards just standing there with their selfie sticks watching. GTFO of the way you greasy hillbillies
In another video one of those guys says it's a flash bang.
Then he yelled “medic! medic!”
And “theres an active shooter”
Uhh no thats just a usss agent removing a seditioner that made her self a threat to his protection detail.
Edit ss to usss
I don't know why but the call for a medic annoyed the shit out of me. Did you bring a medic with you buddy? Did you have any plan for if shit went down? Or are you just expecting a medic to materialize out of thin air?
Blm had volunteer medics packing trauma kits. Proud boys had mom pack them a lunch. Extra gravey.
This fucking idiot yelling "shots fired" like no one heard the shot...
In another video angle a guy is repeatedly yelling that there’s an “active shooter” as if they are innocent victims of a mass shooter or something
In their minds they are just and innocent and don't deserve it if anything bad happens.
You get the impression from comments like that and that woman who got maced and insisted "all they wanted to do was have a revolution" that they expected everyone to just surrender. Then they could brag to their friends on social media about how they singlehandedly forced Pelosi into electing Trump for another four years.
I expected nothing less from hyped up selfiestick wielding greasy goPro strapped neckbeard hillibilli bootlickers.
They were screaming shit like “medic”, “shots fired”, “watch out flashbang”. These are the 9gag neckbeards that don’t come out of the basement for anything but cheetos. They genuinely think it’s a LARP event.
Can't cross that line ...
As Raylan givens said "it was justified"
When the looting starts, the shooting starts.
Trying to remember who said that...
She died for YouTube views Sad
More likely for Facebook. I bet she couldn't wait to get home and write about how she single-handedly overthrew the government.
He stepped out of cover to stop a threat, fired once when the backdrop was clear and bullet penetration wasn't a risk, and immediately returned to cover and did not turn on the rest of the crowd.
I hope he and his family afforded the protection that will be required in the coming days.
Probably Secret Service. Pence was in the build and they are trained not to descalate but rather eliminate threats.
If this is the case I doubt his identity will be released.
They were chanting "Hang Mike Pence"
While draped in flags that have his name on them. These people aren’t too intelligent
You know who else has chanted that? ISIS.
and if she'd got through it could have been chaos as the others may have rushed in as well.
100% he did what he had to do and only what he had to do. I hope he's doing OK.
I also hope he is okay. I wouldn’t want to be in that position. He likely had orders to shoot in such a situation. It’s almost like suicide by cop. Shitty situation all around. A waste of a life and an officer that is likely feeling like complete shit after doing his job, all over a stupid baseless conspiracy theory.
That dude is wearing an Auschwitz shirt... WTF?
They're not sending their best.
well, that’s what happens when you break into a fucking government building and try to attack government officials, dumbass...
Imagine dying for a reality TV star with suspected dementia and the vocabulary of a third grader. This has got to be the most pathetic thing I have ever seen.
wHaT aRe YoU gOiNg To Do ShOoT mE?
Lol there are so many Trump supporters claiming she was just standing by and not trying to break into any thing or do anything violent. She got what she deserved. A 14 year veteran should have known not to break into the capitol building. What an idiot.
When you’re standing next to the dude in the “camp auschwitz” sweatshirt, maybe it’s time to ask yourself if you’re the baddies.
There is video, why are they so stupid?
I mean think about all the embarrassing videos of Trump and they still want to suck the mans dick?
They are literally dying to suck that dick.
She was a veteran?
Very well done by the secret service. Extremely professional. He was in cover showing his intent to use a firearm. She crossed the line probably the same hall pence was on, he came out from cover and fired one fatal shot ensuing no one behind her would be hit and got right back into cover.
It's a shame that happened but I'm surprised more were not killed. Are the leaders of the free world in that building? And they walk in yelling hang mike pence? There is alot of power in that room. Where was the military during this attempted coup?
Trump actually refused a request for help. Nancy Pelosi had to request the national guard from Virginia to come in to help because there was no other option. Trump did all of this deliberately because he wanted to "punish" the people who refused to overturn the election results. He told these nutjobs to do this. He incited the entire goddamn thing and made sure there was nobody to stop it. He risked lives on both sides for his shitty little ego.
A rioter was shot. So people did die over his insanity.
To be honest, the build a barrier, the warned the people. What did they think would happen with a threat to the VP, VP elect and other high ranking politicians?
I cannot celebrate the death of another person, but this woman was a military veteran involved in the invasion of the Capitol for the purposes of preventing democracy to function. What did she expect was going to happen? She should have known, and the terrorists are so lucky that this didn't happen to most of them.
I want to see any Capitol police that were collaborating with these terrorists in jail for life.
And they let these people pretty deep in, but at some point you have to hold a line or they’ll probably keep coming until Congresspeople are in immediate danger. I guess this doorway was that line.
Exactly. Also that line was pretty clear. I’m sure they were told don’t come any further or we will shoot. Even if the officers said absolutely nothing (highly unlikely) wouldn’t you think it’s weird that this is the first line of officers you’re facing that are pointing actual guns at you? Something should click at that point that you may want to stay away from there unless you want to die. My reaction to a person barricaded behind a door pointing a gun at me wouldn’t be to try to get through the door/barricade that’s for sure.
Your remark about the reaction to a person with the gun is so on point. There was another video from a news outlet that showed most of the rioters promptly stopped trying to ram through the barricaded door once they saw the dude with the gun on the other side. Some of them even put their hands up in the air, and were in the process of retreating while yelling about the gun. But the lady must've been totally oblivious amidst the chaos, and still tried to get through the door.
I was also surprised to see how these dudes that looked like they were so bloodthirsty about 10 seconds ago trying to frantically destroy the door just scatter away once they saw the woman get shot.
Also pathetic how one person's reaction was to get the phone out of his pocket, and try to film her dying seconds. Instead of being concerned about her health. Same with the bunch at the back acting like vultures more interested in pointing their cameras at her instead of how to save her life.
WOW! Great find!
I'm honestly surprised more people didn't get shot.
And I wouldn't be surprised if congress doesn't spend $15 Billion upgrading all the doors and windows to make the entire building a bunker.
At no point did any of those Trump supporters think, "She was just shot, maybe we should leave because we're not supposed to be here."
In the other longer video of this incident, a couple of the police officers that were there said EMS won't come if Trump supporters are unruly. Maybe the correct response would've been, "YOU FUCKING IDIOTS, YOU BROKE INTO THE GODDAMN PLACE! YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE!"
I honestly couldn't believe what I was watching.
that and... perhaps ( just hear me out)... if a gun is pointed at me and the person holding it told me to leave.... yea... not gonna call his bluff on that one...
Why did those over armed police let those people get past them?
It's the same reason you don't see Tony Stark and Iron Man in the same place.
Well I think we all found out the true line you can’t cross with out getting shot. We thought it was the front door but I guess it’s that door.
I'm always confused when people yell for a "Medic" like they're on some battlefield where a Medic is running around bandaging soldiers.
In other angles you can see that a cop is screaming medic. After a while an actual medic shows up.
File this under: Fuck around and find out.
Holy shit, I have seen quite a few angles but you can see the gun and the shot in this one
She’s so privileged that it didn’t even cross her mind that there’d be repercussions
She thought being a Trump supporter was plot armour. Fucked Around and Got Found Out.
Are those guys by her police, or impersonating? I'm confused
They’re police, they just came upstairs on this side right before she gets shot. I don’t think guards inside saw them arrive yet.
Looks like the first officer reaches the top of the stairs as the woman hits the floor, talk about timing.
This the woman that was killed, heres the fucking kicker though, she was in the USAF and had a high security clearance so she had to have known something like this would happen. It's hard to feel bad for her and I feel terrible for the agent who had to shoot her.
Well if you've made it that far into the building without much resistance. I suppose you get lulled into this sense of complacency where you begin to think you can wander anywhere as long as get past those pesky barricades.
Trump supporter told me this would be our next grassy knoll...we would never find out where the shot came from. This video proves him wrong
Camp Aushwitz appears at the end of the video.
They gotta get that guy...
