Toll of death, injuries from Capitol attack stands at more than 140 police officers, prosecutors and

By Tom Jackman

The toll of death and injuries for the police officers involved in defending the U.S. Capitol in Washington during the Jan. 6 attack by a pro-Trump mob has risen to more than 140, according to federal and police authorities.

I have officers who were not issued helmets prior to the attack who have sustained head injuries. One officer has two cracked ribs and two smashed spinal discs and another was stabbed with a metal fence stake, to name some of the injuries, Gus Papathanasiou, chairman of the Capitol Police officers union, said in a statement Wednesday,

In addition to the death of one Capitol Police officer, according to federal prosecutors, more than 80 Capitol Police officers were assaulted.

About 65 officers from the D.C. police also suffered injuries, including several concussions from head blows from various objects, including metal poles ripped from inauguration-related scaffolding and even a pole with an American flag attached, D.C. police officials said. Other injuries included swollen ankles and wrists, bruised arms and legs, and irritated lungs from bear and pepper spray.

8. And The Repug Senate Is Circling The Wagons Again Around Trump & Doing Nothing To Hold Him....

accountable. It's really a slap in the face to the men and women on duty that were protecting the Capitol that were injured in the process. How could the Repugs face them - if they continue to protect Trump.

10. Republicans did this. For Trump. Republican Senators don't care about

all the destruction and the people that were harmed. They'll protect Trump no matter how obviously guilty he is.

They did it once before.
