Trump terrorists might get away with homicide when the Capitol police officer died of stroke
The District of Columbia coroner ruled that officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes after being attacked by Trump terrorists during the Capitol riot.
The Washington Post reported:
In an interview with the Washington Post, the coroner Francisco J. Diaz said the autopsy found no evidence that the 42-year-old officer had an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said caused sickick’s throat to go fast would be clogged. Diaz also said there was no evidence of internal or external injuries.
Noting that Sicknick was among the officials hiring the Capitol mob, the coroner said, “Everything that turned out played a role in his condition.”
The ruling will make it much harder for prosecutors to indict the two men who attacked Sicknick, who supported Donald Trump, of murder.
At a time when Republicans accuse Democrats of inciting violence, Trumpers who perpetrated violence that resulted in the death of a police officer may not be charged with murder.
Something is wrong with both the police and the criminal justice system in the United States. It is not right that two domestic terrorists are not charged with murder while innocent African Americans are routinely killed by the police.
The system is broken and if Trump terrorists are not charged with murder it will only confirm that injustice has replaced justice in the United States.
