Inside the U.S. Capitol at the height of the siege | Visual Forensics

At 2:12 p.m. on Jan. 6, supporters of President Trump began climbing through a window they had smashed on the northwest side of the U.S. Capitol. “Go! Go! Go!” someone shouted as the rioters, some in military gear, streamed in. It was the start of the most serious attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812. The mob coursed through the building, enraged that Congress was preparing to make Trump’s electoral defeat official. “Drag them out! … Hang them out!” rioters yelled at one point, as they gathered near the House chamber.
Officials in the House and Senate secured the doors of their respective chambers, but lawmakers were soon forced to retreat to undisclosed locations. Five people died on the grounds that day, including a Capitol police officer. In all, more than 50 officers were injured.
To reconstruct the pandemonium inside the Capitol, The Washington Post examined text messages, photos and hundreds of videos, some of which were exclusively obtained. By synchronizing the footage and locating some of the camera angles within a digital 3-D model of the building, The Post was able to map the rioters’ movements and assess how close they came to lawmakers - in some cases feet apart or separated only by a handful of vastly outnumbered police officers.

  • Within days of this event, the National Guard from all 50 States arrived in D.C.. Why? Only Trump could have called them, did he meet with the commanders of the Guard Units? We are still in a State of War remember, for as long as it takes to fight terrorism. USS Lindsey Graham on his youtube page has a 32 or so min. clip of him questioning Nominee Kavanaugh. Start at about 24 mins in where Sen. asks about the Law of Armed Conflicts. It ends when the Senator says about traitors "You know we executed them" . The DOD Law of War is available on line it makes interesting reading.

  • I'd like to see all those arrested and convicted of a crime for their activities on 1/ 6/2021, including the planners behind the scenes, sentenced to a long time in a dormitory prison cell with several hundred men who haven't had intimate relations with a woman for many years. Video and audio recordings should be made and the results preserved for posterity and stored at the Library of Congress. After that, on each anniversary of the Trump Republican assault on the Capitol and members of Congress, (as well as their own Vice President) the tapes should be played on television for all to see, just as when the 911 videos were played for several years after that despicable occasion. We should never forget what happened on Jan. 6th, and then dumb bastards who were responsible for it.

He should have immediately gone to the Capitol and told his worshipers to immediately retreat! He did not. *Trump has American blood is on his hands!*

  • Make your voices heard, peacefully. Did you forget that part? The "peril" that law-makers faced???? The citizens were the constituents of the politicians in session, why would you presume the politicians were in peril? Manipulative editors gave no backstory of the voters request to a bipartisan Congressional review of the Nov2020 election after hundreds of citizen poll watchers witnessed possible mismanagement in several voting districts (not all, some). As well, that the election system was similar to what the Philippines were banning due to election fraud. The review would have left plenty of time for the tradition of peaceful inauguration. You should have added that the DNC denied the courtesy to the People and refused to hold the much needed election review, you also neglected to specify the inciteful actions of the DNC & Rinos that immediately started after their rude denial, no mentioning of the DNC & Rinos severely insulting the concerned voters on global television, newsprint & social media. The DNC & Rinos also savagely insulted the few RNC politicians that followed PROPER protocol in requesting the bipartisan review to help The People. You don't mention the concerned voters were censored to silence when the voters tried to give voice and plead for the Congressional review, through the media. The DNC & Rinos should have been disciplined for their egregious actions leading up to Jan2021 against The People and still owe apologies to the citizenry. The citizens were ignored to silence. The People went to knock on the Capitol door to talk with their ignorant representatives. Their representatives again ignored them and hid as if victims. The politicians were the perpetrators, the public do not have to take abuse from politicians or media. The People and the RNC have been injured from destructive over-reach of power by the DNC members in government. Who listens, who reports, who helps The People when the mainstream media are blinded and gagged by currency and power?
