No Evidence Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was Murdered

More Protestors reach the Scaffolding. The crowds there continue to increase.

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Facts are starting to seep out about Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s death.  There has been an intense push by the Media, the Left, and most of the ruling class to cement into the public’s mind the narrative he was murdered by Trump supporters.

The cause of death is unknown. There is no evidence officer Sicknick was struck by a fire extinguisher. There does not appear to be any evidence he suffered from blunt force trauma.

All that is actually known is he died after going back to the office, from what appears to be a stroke resulting from a blood clot.

Brian Sicknick was a Trump supporter. Here are two sources that are attempting to report facts instead of the narrative being pushed by the ruling class and the left to smear Trump supporters.

The narrative is being used as an excuse to push for draconian controls on speech, travel, assembly, even to start a purge of the military.

There is actual reporting going on at CNN. From cnn.com clickable link:

In Sicknick’s case, it’s still not known publicly what caused him to collapse the night of the insurrection. Findings from a medical examiner’s review have not yet been released and authorities have not made any announcements about that ongoing process.

According to one law enforcement official, medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.

One possibility being considered by investigators is that Sicknick became ill after interacting with a chemical irritant like pepper spray or bear spray that was deployed in the crowd. But investigators reviewing video of the officer’s time around the Capitol haven’t been able to confirm that in tape that has been recovered so far, the official said.

The case could also be complicated if Sicknick had a preexisting medical condition. It could not be learned if he did.

There is a good summary from Law Officer, which works hard to relay the facts, just the facts. From lawofficer.com:

Yet beyond the politics and pandering, there are facts.

And while we do not have the autopsy results yet, sources have advised that there are no indications that Officer Sicknick sustained blunt force trauma. This coincides with what his family said just days after his death, indicating that they believed he may have died from a medical condition. If our suspicion proves correct, then Officer Sicknick’s death was undeniably used as a prop for the sake of politics, and even worse, for the sake of political gain.

Making this matter even more political, federal investigators announced that they are “struggling” to build a murder case against anyone in his death.

Most major outlets are reporting that Officer Brian Sicknick was killed because of being beaten with a fire extinguisher by a Trump supporter.

That narrative appears to have been promoted by AP, from anonymous “police sources”. 

From the Daily Mail:

The Capitol Police said in a statement that Sicknick was injured ‘while physically engaging with protesters’.

During the struggle, Sicknick, 42, was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, two law enforcement officials said. The officials could not discuss the ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

In spite of the facts, the narrative that officer Brian Sicknick, a Trump supporter, was murdered by Trump supporters, is simply too useful a propaganda tool for the Media, the Tech Oligarchs, and the ruling deep state to allow the truth to creep out. It joins the big lies of:

  • Hands Up Don’t Shoot from Ferguson Missouri, (it never happened)
  • The idea George Zimmerman used Florida’s Stand Your Ground to kill an innocent black child, Trayvon Martin, (Martin attacked Zimmerman, who justifiably defended himself)
  • The hoax that President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election, (after two years and millions of dollars, no evidence was found, but evidence of a conspiracy to remove President Trump, using the hoax, was found).
  • It joins the ongoing big lie that Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist who hunted down protestors and shot them in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during the riots there. There is ample video evidence he acted in self-defense.  There is zero evidence he was a white supremacist.

I was at the rally/boisterous protest on 6 January 2021, covering the events for AmmoLand.  I witnessed many interactions between the police and the protestors. The vast majority of them were peaceful. I overheard several protestors tell Capitol Police officers:  We have no problem with you. You are just doing your job.

It is clear, in hindsight, relatively small numbers of violent agitators from both the left and Constitutional supporters were among the people who pushed their way into the Capitol on 6 January.

I was not inside the capitol, but I interviewed several people who claimed to have been inside.

The people I interviewed said they worked hard to prevent injury to the police and to prevent the destruction of the Capitol, which they considered to be their House.

As a supporter of President Trump, it seems unlikely Officer Brian Sicknick would want his death to be used to promote the policies of those he opposed.

It appears five people associated with the boisterous protests at the Capitol on 6 January died that day. All five were Trump supporters. Only one, so far, was killed. That was Ashli Babbit, an unarmed white woman, a veteran, who was shot by a Capitol Police officer inside the Capitol.

Why did the protest occur on January 6, 2021? Half the country believed the election was stolen, and there was ample evidence which the system refused to investigate. They believed the ruling class, including the media, routinely lied to them.

The part about lies, at least, seems to have been vindicated.

Time has published a bragging confession of how the ruling class subverted the election process and the Constitution to get rid of Donald Trump.

Hi, I am new here. I joined to remind people that over 100 police officers were injured that day. I believe we should support our Brothers and Sisters in uniform, by not forgetting about them. You cannot avoid the fact that some rioters became violent and fought with the police, who were just trying to do their job. They should be mentioned in articles such as this, and the people responsible should be held accountable,

Better, in many locations.

The Ten Orders that Will Not be Obeyed, does not mention whether deputies of the Sheriff’s office and State Police officers should protect citizens from federal LEOs and National Guard members.

While Sheriff’s are elected, they tend to not stand up to Federal LEOs.

Had Law Enforcement paid attention to their Oath and Duty all across the United States and acted to quell the Summer of Love RIOTS all across this country, regardless of what their “handlers” were telling them NOT to do, there wouldn’t have been ANYONE at the Capitol taking a vote on whether or not to seat the wrong guy in the president’s seat, nor would there have been angry voters all around the Capitol DEMANDING A REDRESS OF GREIVENCES AGAINST OUR GOVERNMENT?

Facts be damned! It’s all narrative; they write it and you better like it. The fact that in January 6th, about one million persons peaceably assembled in Washington, to protest a very questionable election, a number equal or greater than that which assembled for the 1963 March on Washington for Civil Rights, is completely buried. No wonder, media want to steer your attention to Trump and the “terrorists”.

I’m not a lawyer. If it had been determined that the LEO who killed Ashli Babbitt committed murder, would the other mostly peaceful protestors be guilty of felony murder?

As it is, the government investigated itself and found no wrongdoing and no charges were filed against the LEO.

I don’t know if Brian Sicknick’s death was a homicide. Do you?

the LEO would claim self-defense scared or not. I don’t think his death would have to be ruled a homicide per the way the statute reads, “anyone attempting or engaged” in a felony. so the angry mob of protestors that were present need to all be charged with murder.

Again, I’m not a lawyer, but I thought if a LEO justifiably killed a perpetrator during the commission of a crime, a co-perpetrator (who was committing a felony) could be found guilty.

It’s not clear to me that anyone else would have been found guilty of murder if the LEO was determined to have committed murder.

On a different note, it would provide some degree of closure if the government released the names of the people who have been apprehended along with some type of description of which group they were associated with:

  • Trump supporters;
  • Provocateurs.

it doesn’t matter if they are legally justified as long as the perps were illegally acting, or countless cases would have to be overturned.

are you saying there was “group a” ready as in “geared up” prepared to arrest people and “group b” a mob of hapless stooges willing to do anything, providing cover for “group a”? aren’t they all as culpable if they crossed the threshold of the PREPOSITIONED perimeter?

I don’t get your point here, are taxpayers allowed 24/7 access to government property? group a? group b? why does it matter if they committed a crime?

I’ll take your word for it. It just seems odd that if it was the LEO committing murder (as opposed to legally killing a perp), the legal system would hold a co-perp responsible. Regarding the people who entered the Capitol building, I believe in free will. A couple of examples of free will: I don’t think anyone was dragged into the Capitol building, so everyone went in there on there own free will. They all made choices. No matter what anyone else in the crowd did or said, it was their choice to enter the building. They should be held… Read more »

Thank you for that great article. Good information I have not seen anywhere else. No autopsy results after a month seems strange. Here are two consecutive sentences from the NY Post (.com) that show the bias. Moments later, a rioter tosses the fire extinguisher toward a group of officers below, striking one on the helmet. It’s unclear if the cop who was plunked was Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, 42. He died at a hospital Thursday after being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the melee, two law enforcement sources told the Associated Press.

The attack/riot/call-it-what-you-may at the Capitol was illegal, period. And, it seems that Antifa agitators and other anarchists were there and at the forefront, likely as agent provocateurs. But, anyone who forced their way in committed a felony. That triggers the felony murder rule. If it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer died as a foreseeable result of the incident, then all involved would be guilty of murder under the felony murder rule. But, it sounds like this good officer suffered a stroke at home and off duty. If he’d had a heart attack or stroke while… Read more »
