Racism, Riots & Police Action
Capitol Police were given Congressional Medals for their actions in the January 6 Riot at the Capitol by Democratic-controlled House, Executive Branch and Senate. Many Southern Republican Representatives refused to sign the bill which called the accused participants in the Riot "INSURRECTIONISTS" and which included a Display of the January 6, 2021 events for the Smithsonian Institute. How should Ashli Babbitt be remembered--the 14-year Air Force veteran from San Diego shot in the neck while unarmed inside the Capitol? Should she be remembered like George Floyd as some mown down by police action, or as a traitor trying to take over government? As she and other perpetrators were unarmed with guns, how could they have taken over? 300 are still held in custody in D.C., facing felony charges of up to 20 years, some without even public defenders, and no one is reaching out in their defense at this time.
