"The answers will be crafted to insure they still have their jobs tomorrow..."

Well, yeah. OK.
I get that. To a degree.
That's sort of the human-ness we all share.
The awareness that being too self-indulgent could have ramifications that may hurt your family.

Sure, we can all understand that.

However, I would expect these men may feel hurt, insulted, aggrieved, not only by the way they were treated by the Jackass Patriots whackin' on 'em on the 6th, but also by the disrespect offered by some of the politicians they strived so hard, and took such injuries to protect.

In short, they may have something to get off their chest.
After all, these are cops. Uniform. Badge. Gun. Authority.
And to then cower because, well, because...." I don't dare tell this Committee what those dyckheads screamed in my face before they spit at me'.

I just don't think that kind of subservience is in the DNA of many men or women who pin on a badge and holsters a gun.

Your mileage may vary.

So, you are interested in watching the Committee begin it work by questioning Capitol police officers who were savagely beaten by those Jackass Patriots and Fatboy Militias.

Here's a little information on how to do that. I'm sure there are other venues to watch it. I post this just as an initial attempt to get at least one outlet.

As long as we are offering up editorials from one of my subscription newspapers.....The Washington Post.

Well, here is what the Editorial Board posted up last night.
They make perfect sense in what they detail are some of the legitimate questions to be posed ......and answered......regardless if one is a supporter of the mob or a critic of 'em.
WaPo articulates America's questions about that day.
And hopefully the Committee can uncover answers that will assist in America avoiding such a shameful event again.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Post's View

Opinion: We have questions about Jan. 6. The new House committee can answer them.
Opinion by the
Editorial Board
Yesterday at 5:23 p.m. EDT

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection begins work Tuesday, hearing from police officers who confronted the deadly chaos. Reminding Americans that the Jan. 6 riot was a horrific attack on democracy — in contrast to the narrative some Republicans have told of a “loving crowd” filled with people behaving like average Washington tourists — is an essential part of the committee’s work.

But, also in contrast to Republican claims, there is much for the select committee to uncover.

Top of the list is precisely what then-President Donald Trump did before, during and after the attack. How did he prepare his speech preceding the insurrection, in which he told the crowd to fight? What did he anticipate his audience’s reaction would be? When did he know the pro-Trump mob was threatening the Capitol? Why did he offer only mild statements long after the danger was clear? Did Trump-affiliated rally organizers coordinate with extremist groups? Answering such questions calls for subpoenaing former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows; Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner; and other White House aides with useful information.

Also relevant is what members of Congress reported to Mr. Trump and other members of his administration as the riot unfolded. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who spoke with the president and Mr. Kushner on Jan. 6, must testify, along with any other lawmakers who interacted with the Trump administration in the run-up to, during and after that day. The list includes Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and possibly Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). For that matter, the committee must examine whether any lawmakers themselves maintained connections with or even abetted the rioters.

Investigators should hear from extremist-group leaders at the center of the violence. How did they prepare? What was their goal? The committee should hear also from Justice Department and Capitol Police officials who failed to anticipate the riot. Why did intelligence officials across the government seem unaware of warnings that were all over social media? To what extent did law enforcement discount or ignore warning signs about right-wing extremists because federal and local officers did not want to cross Mr. Trump and other Republicans? Why did the National Guard take so long to arrive?

Finally, the investigation should lead to recommendations to forestall a repeat of such political violence, with a particular focus on how the government monitors domestic extremism. As they conduct their work, the lawmakers on the largely Democratic panel must suppress the urge to make it the partisan exercise that Republicans claim it will be — behaving instead like the fact-finders the nation needs.

There is no doubt, given the testimony of four police officers and the audio and video on all but one national news program, that the attack on the police and the vandalism of the Capitol Building on Jan 6th was violent, with total disregard for the Police doing their duty.

No matter how many threads and posts on this issue, no matter how many excuses and lies by Rep. McCarthy and the Talking heads on Fox News, this hateful set of trump supporters were treasonous, and an attempt at an organized coup to overthrow the election in total disrespect for the Constitution of the United States.

Today, at a bit before 4pm PDT, I turned on Fox News. The women anchor and the women being interviewed did not mention one iota on the Jan 6th event; instead the interviewee went on a ludicrous attack on democrats defunding police and that this was the cause of crime all across America.

Payback's a motherfucker, ain't it? Did you idiots think you could run apeshit for a whole year without any pushback?

We haven't even started yet, and you lefties are all pissing in your panties. :laughing0301:

This is a despicable farce by the Democrat Dirty tricks Department.

Why isn't there a Committee investigating six months of Negro and Communists insurrection in over 200 American cities that resulted in burning, looting, murdering and destruction?

Is it because the filthy Democrats are a party of goddamn Negroes and Communists?

Why aren't they investigating the shitass government thugs that murdered an unarmed American Patriot woman for protesting a stolen election?

Is this what our once great country has become. A fucking brutal Socialist Revolution takeover?

You can bet the farm that Ashli Babbitt's name will never be mentioned at the Democrat's little "investigation."

Now at 5pm PDT Tucker Carlson is on rant about masks and why anyone vaccinated needs not to wear mask. He's so sincere, and so dishonest and so culpable for putting biddable daily viewers in harms way. The person who called Carlson a killer last week was correct.

Fucking moron, why didn't Republicans investigate that when they controlled the Senate last year? Must be because the filthy Republicans are a party of goddamn Nazis and Communists.

That it is. Pelosi and Schumer seem to have faded from the spotlight lately, thanks to the more radical left hogging all the limelight. Looks like they're trying to assert their authority to regain some credibility or something.

What insight do you have to offer the forum after you've read Representative Thompson's editorial?
Democrats keep referring to our democracy. Are they afraid that we might suddenly realize that we don't have a democracy and never did?

How many hours will be spent on an incident that only lasted less than half a day to begin with?

Why are you so angry, is it because reality and truth upsets you? When the narrative you've ingested upsets your tummy when faced with reality, truth and justice.

Do you not comprehend that Jan 6th was an attempted coup, and effort to interfere with a Constitutional duty of The Congress and Vice President of the U.S.?

Do you not understand that protesting violently has occurred in the past decades, not just this last summer, a result of racism and unequal rights, unequal opportunities and unequal justice?

No. You will not admit to reality, you don't have the honesty or guts to admit the truth.

They do have a goal other than Trump hate. They want to finger other Republicans. Democrats are expecting the lopping off limbs and heads next year. They think removing Republicans like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul will staunch the flow. How many can they tie to January 6
