#CapitolRiot #Jan6 #Congress


  1. what i don't understand is these officers didn't use deadly force which is last resort, except 1 did. because every week a unarm black man is killed by police. plus if the crowd who attacked the capitol on jan. 6 2021 were black i think these cops would have used deadly force.

  2. This guy is nothing but a gang member thug. FBI, CIA and locals cops are really becoming the bottom of the barrel these days with their neck tattoos and wife beatings.

  3. Michael Fanone is a failed, cowardly DC security guard who doesn’t speak for America’s brave, real police officers. By the time this poorly trained security guard, & the rest of his ill-trained local buffoon guards arrived wearing police uniforms (an hour late) the protest was basically over. Real police are heroes, but this crybaby would never qualify for the most important prerequisite required by every police agency across the country.

  4. Can you imagine the pain the victims of the rioters of 2020 felt knowing these same police officers never lifted a hand to help them. This man is a liar no doubt.

  5. A very ignorant man who understands only "duty," but nothing about Constitutional crisis. He assisted with the install of our new Banana Republic, fostered through easily hackable machines and unlawful rule changes (Kelly vs PA). This man is just a naive and gullible disgrace.

  6. Blood on the hands of the Republican Party. Then Now and forever. 🔥
    The Republican Party has no more integrity after the capital Riots. No matter how they spin it.

  7. Like Leonidas and the glorious 300, our brave officers held the gates and saved the nation from Trump, the New Xerxes with his hoard of brain-dead zombies. The GOP is still dishonoring these heroes and defending their perverted god-king but Fanone and his cohorts will go down in history as the best of the best.

  8. can't even hold his southern accent, dads a high power lawyer in DC and this guys graduated from a PREP school. Yall are that dumb.
