Ohio man joins raid on U.S. Capitol: 'I shouldn't have kicked in the window'

An Ohio man kicked in an enforced window shutter at the U.S. Capitol during a seditious mob raid on Congress last week, footage shows.

Troy Faulkner can be clearly seen on the exterior of the Capitol in a “Faulkner Painting” sweatshirt bearing the company phone number. Footage shows him successfully kicking the shutter in after the first insurrectionist failed. The crowd responded with jubilance.

Shortly thereafter, a woman uses a Donald Trump flag to clear what’s left of the pane.

“Traitors! Traitors get guillotine,” one man yelled, referring to a machine infamously used during the French Revolution for beheadings.

2. It was the cops fault

“It seemed the cops were antagonizing us and letting them straight into the building in the front so I believe it was all set up for the Trump people,” he said. “I knew I shouldn’t have kicked in the window. I was upset and wasn’t thinking rationally.”

3. Oh, Lord,I know Faulkner's here!

None named Troy but they are evangelicals. There was a Trump sign in their yard before the election. It was gone the next day.

4. Another cultist ...

Speaking via text messages, Faulkner said he didn’t plan on storming the Capitol when he travelled to Washington D.C. He said he was “shot in the chest by police” and “shrapnel hit my face” and he grew angry that police used tear gas to stave off the invaders. He said he didn’t know what police shot him with.

“It seemed the cops were antagonizing us and letting them straight into the building in the front so I believe it was all set up for the Trump people,” he said. “I knew I shouldn’t have kicked in the window. I was upset and wasn’t thinking rationally.”

Looking back on it, he said he just got caught up in the moment, and added he wasn’t part of any violence against police officers.

“I don’t glorify what I did, nor am I proud of it,” he said.

On his Facebook, a photo depicts Faulkner wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat with a “white lives matter” graphic framing his head.
