Bill headed to Biden’s desk that gives gold medals to officers protecting the Capitol on Jan. 6

The Senate unanimously put their stamp of approval on a bill headed to President Joe Biden’s desk that gives gold medals to Washington, D.C., Metro and Capitol Police officers involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riots. 

The Washington Examiner reported that the upper chamber of Congress voted Tuesday on the measure that passed the House of Representatives in June.

Before leaving the House, however, the resolution saw the objection of almost two dozen Republicans who didn’t care for the language in it that characterized the attack as an insurrection.

The Senate voted on the bill just after news reached the public that two officers who were involved in the Jan. 6 rally died by suicide earlier this week.

This week’s officers are in addition to the officers who died by suicide earlier in the year following the riots. Metropolitan Police officer Kyle DeFreytag was found dead by suicide on July 10, according to the Examiner and Officer Gunther Hashida was found dead in his home on July 29. Both officers responded to the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.

Additionally, just weeks after the event took place Capitol Police officer Howard Liebengood and Metropolitan Police officer Jeffrey Smith both died by apparent suicide.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, took aim at the 21 House Republicans who voted against the measure saying in his diatribe that police faced a mob of white supremacists and domestic terrorists that day: “The gold medal is about setting the record straight and recognizing the true heroism on display that fateful day,” Schumer said.

The Examiner’s Facebook  post saw commenters that were overwhelmingly frustrated at the way the vent has been characterized with one comment asking, “Why is this so important but burning down a lot of our country isn’t? Sick people.”

Another said, “None of this makes any sense…all the lies…what about the people in jail all this time for no reason??? If any police officers deserve a medal it’s the ones out on the streets.”

If this country believes that these officers really committed suicide, then I’ve got some ocean front property in Arizona for sale if anyone’s interested. This has Nancy Pelosi written all over it and every other person that is in cahoots with her. Time to wake up folks. I feel sorry for these two officers and their families but back to back suicides in such a small amount of officers connected to the, capital riot, looks like it came out of one of Hillary’s play books.

Yes, exactly ! I feel sorry for these officers also. I’m afraid they did not want to play along with Pelosi’s game so ——. Suicide. Pelosi and her cronies, FBI, Antifa, BLM planned the Jan 6 event. She knew Trump would be blamed for everything. Her hatred for him has pushed her over the edge.

You have got to be kidding me………..these guys ain’t real cops, they’re over-priced under worked security guards. Pelosi’s private gestapo.

This is all theater, so pelosi can justify her fake committee . She’s trying to make it look real to the public. You never hear about the police or secret service that SHOT Ashley Babbitt or all the BLM, antifa, or the FBI that were there instigating all the bad behavior.

So when do we give medals to the real insurrection defenders of the chaos and violence sanctioned by harris, and by the radical democrats,; carried out by leftist BLM, Antifa? That was 7 months of sedition and insurrection. They destroyed Federal buildings, and burned and looted business, to their reckless content. Not to forget committed murder and physical violence against our domestic first responders. The Summer of 2020 was the real violence and insurrection no matter how the DNC tries to cover it up and blame others for their mess.
When do those policemen get their just deserved reward?

Sad that a couple of hours and boo-hooing get medals when soldiers, police officers, firefighters, get nothing when they protect so many more lives. Politicians thinking their lives more important than ours again!

Cities burn, looted, murders, intimidation, mass bullying, anarchy across the land everyday for 1 1/2 years now, but all they talk about is one day–Jan 6. Amazing stupid! I guess if all the anarchy was say, the KKK or similar group, the leftist swamp would in fact send the Marines and squash them like bugs. HYPOCRITES on STEROIDS–the lot of them. Throw Up!!
