Has anyone seen any recent stories regarding the cop who shot the girl, and any investigations? I haven't seen anything since the first week of JAN, when they reported him on administrative leave.

The ACAB crowd is celebrating him as a Hero of the Soviet Union

But you know, a cop shots a felon with a mile long rap sheet with a gun in his hand and the world ends

Regarding one of the Capitol Police officers that died:

https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2021/02/05/vexed-cnn-reports-investigators-are-having-trouble-building-a-federal-murder-case-regarding-the-death-of-uscp-officer-brian-sicknick/

Quote
“Medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.”

Again, he never should have had to die, but it sure seems like there's more and more evidence (often ignored/deflected by the MSM) that things are turning out not as initially reported about the whole day. All the reports I read said he was absolutely struck by a fire extinguisher. I read it enough times from a variety of sources to believe it. Now the medical examiners are saying "no blunt force trauma."

News has gone rabid. It isn't news anymore and needs to be put down. Hell let's just call it what it is, propaganda. It's a narrative that drives a certain desired response. That's all.

I have not followed this in detail, but surely an autopsy was done.  Have the results been released, or even with an autopsy they cannot determine a cause of death?

The results are scheduled to be released on a Friday, probably when a big world or national story is breaking. It will not be reported he was the officer allegedly who died from the fire extinguisher.

The cop who got hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the insurrection then died will live on in the collective memory for decades.

Too late to make a difference of course. Just like on twitter when the fake story gets distributed 1,000,000,000 times but the retraction gets retweeted 147 times.

Also, this:

UPDATE: New information has emerged regarding the death of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick that questions the initial cause of his death provided by officials close to the Capitol Police.

So the source was Pelosi, who was standing next to a capitol police officer?

Apparently the flex cuff (AKA zip tie) narrative has changed as well. It appears that while at least one person was photographed walking around with some, they didn't bring them along in some pre-planned plot to take politicians hostage. They were laying on a table in the building and one or more people grabbed them.

That was a dumb thing to do, but it was more like, "Hey look! Free stuff!" versus a long planned plot, which was part of the prosecution's argument in impeachment #2. One might ask what they were doing laying on a table out in the open in the Capitol building.

Merrick Garland's statement:

Quote
"If confirmed, I will supervise the prosecution of white supremacists and others who stormed the Capitol on January 6 -- a heinous attack that sought to disrupt a cornerstone of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power to a newly elected government," Garland's opening statement reads. "That critical work is but a part of the broad scope of the Department's responsibilities."

Biden introduced Garland as his nominee for the role of attorney general on Jan. 7, one day after pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol as lawmakers met to confirm the president’s election victory. In a press conference at the time, Biden presented Garland’s nomination as an essential step to restore the rule of law.

Garland will also discuss his "urgent" mission to uphold all Americans' civil rights after a summer of racial justice protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd.

"That mission remains urgent because we do not yet have equal justice," Garland's opening statement reads. 'Communities of color and other minorities still face discrimination in housing, education, employment, and the criminal justice system; and bear the brunt of the harm caused by pandemic, pollution, and climate change."

Doesn't seem like an unbiased, fair AG to me.

Capitol Police say they have intelligence showing a “possible plot” by a militia group to breach the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, nearly two months after a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the iconic building to try to stop Congress from certifying now-President Joe Biden's victory.

The threat appears to be connected to a far-right conspiracy theory, mainly promoted by supporters of QAnon, that Trump will rise again to power on March 4. That was the original presidential inauguration day until 1933, when it was moved to Jan. 20.

The revelation was detailed in a statement from the Capitol Police. It comes at the same time the acting police chief is testifying before a House subcommittee.

Kind off hard to hold an armed insurrection without, ummm, arms.

My PD support group is mostly liberals.  Including a reporter from DC.  Unsurprisingly the topic has come up in our weekly zoom meetings.  They were talking about how they weren’t very good insurrectionists because as they “stormed” the capitol they were staying between the rope stanchions and were mostly pretty orderly.  Ummm, guys, do you think maybe that means they weren’t “insurrectionists” in the first place?

I see that the lead story on the NBC evening news tonight is the Capitol is preparing for something to happen tomorrow, since this is apparently the Inauguration Day for Mr. Trump's return to power.

On the conspiracy theory side, I have read two:

1) Talk about "an attack" is a great way for the gov and media to continue to sow the seeds of "white supremacy", keep the concertina wire up at the capitol, and keep pushing the "domestic terrorist" (right wing only) response stuff. Even if the planned attack was two drunk armchair warriors on the Internet.

2) Those qanon guys got talk of this rolling to troll the people in charge and get them to overreact to fake news of a "militia attack".

I don't like either one, especially with the guy pelosi put in charge of the 06JAN (I refuse to call it an insurrection) investigation. He seems like somebody who would love a police state, as long as it leaned left.

Certainly conspiracy or non-conspiracy, I hope nothing happens. No good would come of it.
