(TJVNEWS.COM) Six Capitol Police officers were suspended and 35 more are under investigation after the officers opened the doors and gates and allowed Trump supporters, and other activists, inside the US Capitol on January 6th.
“The investigation into the January 6 attack remains under investigation. Our Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers from that day. We currently have suspended six of those officers with pay,” the department said in a statement.
In the days following the capitol riot, independent journalists and videographers were pointing out numerous instances caught on camera, where officers were allowing protestors inside the capitol, at the time mainstream media was ignoring this video evidence. Often independent reporters, scoop important details, totally overlooked by “reliable sources”.
At the time, these accusations, even with the video evidence were instantly dismissed as “conspiracy theory” This once more demonstrates the dangers of censoring alternative and homegrown media.
The video below is from a YouTube reporter, who pointed out the facts on January 6th, the day of the chaos.
Last month, Pittman announced that the department is conducting an investigation after images and videos shared on social media raised questions about the actions of some USCP officers, NPR reported.
The department “has been actively reviewing video and other open-source materials of some USCP officers and officials that appear to be in violation of Department regulations and policies,” she said on Jan. 11.
None of this was widely reported until yesterday when an official announcement was made.
