On Jan. 6 Capitol Police started firing flash grenades and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters with US and MAGA flags.
From the video you can see the protesters are NOT on the Capitol steps and were behind barriers.
There were children, veterans and seniors in the crowd.
The protesters were packed tightly together and the Capitol Police started firing on them.
Last month a reader sent The Gateway Pundit a second video of the Capitol Police firing on the Jan. 6 crowd of men, women, children and seniors.
In this video you can see in slow motion the flash grenade fired out over the crowd and into the crowd.
The Trump supporters had nowhere to move to and many had NO IDEA what was about to hit them!
The flash grenade then EXPLODES into the crowd of men, women, children, and seniors!
Flash bang grenades in close range can cause hearing loss, eye damage, and other injuries.
This is your government Declaring War on its people!
It is clear now that the US government attacked Trump protesters at the US Capitol on Jan. 6. But the US government, dirtbag Chris Wray, the FBI, and Capitol Police will not release the 14,000 hours of video evidence to clear the Trump protesters of their crimes.
Julie Kelly at American Greatness wrote another excellent report on the abuse of the Jan. 6 detainees.
Kelly describes the inhumane treatment these jailed protesters are receiving as political prisoners.
But more emerging evidence seems to support the idea that police intentionally agitated protesters to provoke bad behavior, including verbal and physical attacks on law enforcement.
Video obtained by American Greatness last month shows Capitol police throwing flashbangs into a crowd of protesters outside the building. The device, also known as a stun grenade, emits flashes of light and a sound louder than a jet engine. It can cause temporary blindness and disorientation; some flashbangs contain rubber pellets, which some protesters claim were the ones used by police on January 6.
“They’ve been throwing flashbangs, shooting us with bullets,” Kash Kelly said on the video. “These are Americans protesting the right way . . . and we’re getting treated like we’re not even citizens.” (Kelly has been charged and currently is detained in the D.C. jail used to house January 6 defendants.)
Micajah Jackson, charged last month with four misdemeanors for his involvement in the January 6 protest, also witnessed violent attacks by police against protesters. “When I was walking to the Capitol, I saw cops dressed in riot gear and it didn’t make any sense to me,” Jackson told me in a phone interview Monday. Law enforcement, Jackson told me, were dressed in all black like “paramilitary” uniforms.
Jackson said cops waved protesters up the steps near the inauguration stage. “Next thing I know, a riot squad comes out of nowhere and starts attacking people, hitting them with batons and their closed fists. People are getting tackled. That’s when people got turned up and started to get agitated.”
Older women, teenagers, and some children, Jackson said, were getting attacked with flashbangs. “The crowd started yelling, what are you guys doing? That’s why you see people cussing and swearing at police.” (Another recently-released video shows protesters yelling at D.C. Metro cops for attacking them. “We’ve always supported you!” one man can be heard saying to the officers. The USCP inspector general confirmed D.C. Metro police used sting balls during the protest.)
This was the same area where Robert Sanford, a retired firefighter from Pennsylvania, allegedly threw a fire extinguisher at three USCP officers calling them “traitors” and “cowards.”
An infuriating video included in Jackson’s charging documents shows when police started throwing the flashbangs into a crowd assembled outside. The attack, which started at around 1 p.m., begins at the one minute mark in this YouTube video. People, most holding Trump or American flags and shouting “USA,” react with shock and anger. They start swearing at the assaulting officers; some complain about getting hit in the legs and buttocks with rubber pellets. “That got me good,” one man is heard saying.
