    A. How do we know she wasn't really an antifa person anyway trying to trick everyone? :)
    B. I'm OK with it either way. Don't assault the Capitol.

    We already know the answer to the question of --“imagine if the protestors were black”
    How do we know?
    Because it has already happened

    I think these are the capitol police -- looks like the uni

    I hate that woman died. She honorably served her country and was a patriot. But she made a serious mistake by breaking into the capitol and suffered the consequences. Just like those dumbasses who fight with police officers and get shot, your actions have consequences regardless of your race or gender.

    As long as you are willing to see the rules applied across the board, that's good.

    All indications were she was not Antifa. Is there any indication she was being violent and threatening life?

    She was attempting to get through a broken window into the Capitol chamber ... the room where you see officers, pistols drawn, facing the mob.

    When rioters assault police and breach a building despite warnings, we should shoot them first and ask questions later.

    I really dont give a **** if the woman who was shot in the capitol building was an Air Force veteran or not. You play dumb games, you get to win stupid prizes. Hope it was worth it.

    So maybe you are conflating me with people with whom I don't have a lot in common. Believe it or not I piss off my liberal friends when I talk about the specifics of what happened in Ferguson and other places where irresponsible folks shouted lies to incite angry mobs
    .. kinda like Trump and Giuliani did in Washington

    Nonsense.

    She's a white trash conspiracy BS terrorist who thought she could break into the House chamber and assault Nancy Pelosi.

    Biden wins and everyone loses their job

    372,000 waiter and bartender jobs were lost in December

    sarcasm using the woman who was just killed?

    If not, here we have the predictable evolutionary leap "forward"
    "From everyone who disagrees with me is a Fascist/racist/NAZI!"
    to
    "Everyone who disagrees with me deserves to die!"

    I will credit you with this - you are one step further down the path than the other two goofballs -- the leftist evolutionary path into total darkness. Or is it devolutionary?


    To my side - these people want to put you in camps, just like thee Chinese do with their people who disagree. Time to wake up

    So instead of arguing that our extremist wackos are understandable but yours are flat evil...maybe we should try to empower reasonable, honorable truthful people in the middle.

    Capital Punishment seems a little harsh for breaking into a building. I wonder what type of society we would be if we enforced laws like Iran, North Korea or Russia? I'm all for throwing the law breakers in jail, but that certainly includes all the antifa and BLM protesters, who have been much more violent then the Capital protesters.

    You exemplify the common liberal. Jacob Blake resisting is a “hero” - veteran protesting is “white trash.” A bit racist don’t you think?

    And I repeat, I hate she died, but she had no business being where she was.

    I spoke to a VP of HR for a major airline last night who also happens to live in my neighborhood and sit on a board that I'm also a member of. The move by the flight attendants union was not political based but rather for the safety of it's members. This particular group of passengers that dominated flights into D.C. was rowdy and unruly. They had many incidents where passengers threatened flight attendants and other passengers. She wouldn't share with me specific details but none-the-less they know who these passengers are. Think of this move like limiting the transportation of UK's Hooligans.

    Fun fact: Mitt Romney always flies Coach and by himself. I'm assuming it's passengers like these that the FA Union is pointing the finger at.

    I just don't see the Capitol as sacred space. It isn't my idol.

    I agree with others here who have said those breaking in should have been arrested. That means taking a beating in some instances. But not murder. Murderers on both sides of the line should be held legally accountable.

    Her killing wasn't a verdict. It was the action of law enforcement in a desperate confrontation. In North Korea, China or Saudia Arabia masses would have been killed at the outdoor barricade.

    From the summer. It’s been going on for a while but the Dems ignored it.

    The House will start impeachment proceedings in the near future. This time I'd expect the charges to be much more welcome among Senate Republicans.

    The benefit of impeaching Trump at this point is that it ensures he can never again hold elected Federal office.

    Glenn Greenwald is something of a unicorn
    He is hard left, yet honest
    How rare is that?

    He sees the same thing I see with regard to the above
    He knows who the actual modern Brownshirts are

    Sadly, the Capitol Hill Police Officer that died last night reportedly was beaten with fire extinguisher.

    4th_floor Dude, where's my laptop?

    You wonder why the cop didn't follow Biden's advice.

    BTW, Biden's comment is moronic. If someone is charging you, you shoot them to stop them. But I wanted to highlight the hypocrisy of the left.

    The "ground" was not worth lives lost. Protecting elected representatives from a mob? Maybe at that point it was appropriate for bullets to fly. I consider our Constitution and process sacred ...as much as any man created institution can be.

    Below is her final day's livestream recording
    Does this sound a long like someone "attempting a coup," as the media says of her?
    She is white and maybe what 5'4, 120? A surfer from Ocean Beach (where I once lived). A small, unarmed woman wearing a Trump flag as a cape?
    If this was an attempted coup, it was the worst such attempt in history.

    We have spent the past several years in this country with blanket media coverage on unarmed people shot by police. And here is a small, unarmed woman killed by law enforcement. Yet most media refuses to look at it
    How is that even possible?
    I suggest to you that there is only one explanation
    It is a form of institutionalized racism
