At least 20 officers have active cases of COVID-19, marking the largest number of cases among the rank and file in months, a Capitol Police union leader said.

Scores of supporters of Donald Trump swarmed into the Capitol without face masks during the riot, injuring officers and damaging an icon of American democracy.

Officers were equipped with personal protective equipment.

1. They should sue the trump campaign and anyone/corporation

That gave ground support for the rally.

3. Absolutely, they should.

Not only for themselves, but anyone in their households who contracts Covid.

5. Was there ever any question?

Everything the trumpers did was a superspreader.

All day that Wednesday my only comforting thought
was realizing that many of those assholes were going
to get Covid.

I'm sorry if any good leo's got it, though.

11. And the officers had masks on, at least in nearly all the photos I saw.

Wonder how many insurrectionists arenít feeling very good right now?

12. The officers' masks might have slipped when the mob was attacking them

crushing their heads, hitting them with fire extinguishers and dragging them down flights of stairs.

I am so ANGRY about this. Those brave officers did not deserve to get COVID-19 on top of everything else. I hope they will be well taken care of.
