The police officer that shot that woman is a hero. She was trying to lead the violent mob through the last door that protected the Vice President of the US.

The police should have opened fire on the mob rioters when they breached the capital. It would have ended the attack and the crowd would have scattered.

Better the members of the mob get killed than the police officers die or were severely injured while protecting democracy from a violent mob.

Listening to a Senator the other day, he said security now guarantees it will never happen again. I took that to mean....if there is a next time they will shoot.

Stop lying. He shot an unarmed woman from 20+ feet away with no warning. There is video evidence. No one was in danger.

Michael Byrd murdered a woman. He should be on trial for murder.

The video clearly shows the police officer was just inside the door where she was climbing through the window.

She was warned numerous times but kept coming, so he shot her. She caused her own death by misadventure.

It also stopped the mob from smashing through the door.

An unarmed woman was shot by a cop twice her size from 20 feet away and you call that "death by misadventure"?

You are now on ignore.

The Right Wing think they live on another planet. The rest of us wish they were.
But let's be fair here. It's not all of the right wing. There are many American conservatives who don't support the outlandish claims of Trump and his MAGA cult, and don't support attacks to overthrow the government.

And many, perhaps most, Canadian conservatives aren't on side with the MAGA cult either.

Within the American right wing, this wacky group has gained power and has taken over (it seems). They've pushed out those who aren't loyal to Trump and they are also pushing out the non-extremists.

Take Covid-19 as an example. On TVO's the Agenda, Steve Paiken showed a poll across all the political parties what proportion thinks that Covid was a hoax. All the parties had about 10% except for the Conservatives which showed over 40%.

And that was reflected during the election too.

So, in terms of all the subjects I've listed, the Right disproportionately has the highest levels of denial of science and the facts.

But let's be fair here.
Won't hear that from the Right.

I don't know anyone who thinks Covid is a hoax, including every Conservative that I know. I do know several people who think that there is a lot of misinformation out there, though. Perhaps that's all that is needed to suggest that they think it's a hoax. Just like people who don't think warming is a real problem get called climate deniers.

And while we're talking about extremists we can't ignore that the left openly supported BLM and Antifa violent riots that led to dozens of deaths and billions in property damage. CNN even called them "mostly peaceful protests" while entire neighborhoods burned to the ground.

As far as I know, the only person killed at the Jan 6 protest was an unarmed woman.

This was back in August. So for 5 full months the Democrats and the rest of the media have been lying? And why did Biden lie to the people today and keep pushing the lie?

"The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations."

Don't know much about the story, but I do know if 570 people tried to violently take over the government it would be a massacer. On both sides.
Hunting down lawmakers while they are trying to finalize an election is a direct attack on the democratic process.

Setting up gallows outside to hang the Vice President, and bursting into the government building to find and capture the VP is a direct attack on the government.

Trump's MAGA people tried to overthrow the United States of America.

That's pretty crazy. Can't believe they wouldn't take guns if that was their goal, it doesn't take many well armed people to storm a building. You do need to be careful about disinformation though lots of manipulators and people with an agenda out there. Before worrying too much about right wing extremists give it time. This is text book treason which carries a min of 5 years in prison and 10,000 fine and a max penalty of death. They will lay charges you can see the true story from there. If 100 people are found guilty of treason there could be a big issue especially if we hit a depression it could get out of hand. If only a couple people are found guilty of treason then there is some manipulation in there. If no one is found guilty of treason then there was a lot of manipulation for an agenda and I would highly suggest ignoring the people that tried to push it.

And over 40% of Democrats believe you have 50% chance of getting hospitalized when infected. High levels of denial of science and facts.
Extremes are wrong on both sides, and neither side cares about facts

There will be a lot of evidence revealed during the hearings that nobody can deny.

That is what the conspirators are afraid of and why they are working so hard to discredit the investigation.

The conspirators know they could end up with serious criminal charges.

Stop lying. People trespassed and walked around taking selfies. No one tried to overthrow the govt according to the FBI.

Had what you claimed really happened the footage would have been leaked in the very first week. Nothing has been leaked which proves that nothing bad really happened. The only alternative is to accept the fact that there were violent Trump supporters and the Democrats are actively hiding that instead of proving it. Do you really believe that?

Some people have been in jail for a year so far and all they did was trespass. This isn't about justice, it's political persecution.

Trump should have pardoned every single one of them on his last day in office but he wanted to please the Democrats. What a fool.
