Inside the U.S. Capitol at the height of the siege | Visual Forensics

Publicerades den 16 jan 2021
At 2:12 p.m. on Jan. 6, supporters of President Trump began climbing through a window they had smashed on the northwest side of the U.S. Capitol. “Go! Go! Go!” someone shouted as the rioters, some in military gear, streamed in. It was the start of the most serious attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812. The mob coursed through the building, enraged that Congress was preparing to make Trump’s electoral defeat official. “Drag them out! … Hang them out!” rioters yelled at one point, as they gathered near the House chamber.
Officials in the House and Senate secured the doors of their respective chambers, but lawmakers were soon forced to retreat to undisclosed locations. Five people died on the grounds that day, including a Capitol police officer. In all, more than 50 officers were injured.
To reconstruct the pandemonium inside the Capitol, The Washington Post examined text messages, photos and hundreds of videos, some of which were exclusively obtained. By synchronizing the footage and locating some of the camera angles within a digital 3-D model of the building, The Post was able to map the rioters’ movements and assess how close they came to lawmakers - in some cases feet apart or separated only by a handful of vastly outnumbered police officers.

  • Officer Goodman deserves a medal for valor.

  • it’s not even a year later and I’m learning about this in my history class (‘-‘)

  • poor police, they have to experience and deal with all of these crack heads.

  • Banana republic.

  • The reason China blatantly introduced the U-shaped line to dispute the sovereignty of Asian countries is because they think they conceal the BC history of the countries, China they say they are the ones who found the islands of BC. Because they know the Asian countries lost this part of history, it was Lac Long Quan and the Hung Kings who explored Asia and the ancestors of Asia, there were no Hoa Ha people, Asia had only Yellow skinned people with monolids and double eyelids, Qin Shihuang caused wars that lost some of their ancient history to their ancestors, China they knew so deliberately misrepresent the history of misappropriation. sovereignty over the sea and islands of the countries. Asian countries learn about the history of the Lac Long Kings Hung King Hung history of Ancient Greece will find their ancestors, receive the ancestors of everyone, they will protect you. This is the right to apply to the countries that are disputing China's South China Sea sovereignty. Learn about 5000 years history between Ancient Greece and Lac Long Quan Asia.

  • Why did they have gas masks under their seats??? Had they, the Republicans suspected this??

  • How is trump not arrested for promoting basically a terrorist attack on a US GOVERNMENT building. Yes it was a riot but I am referring it a terrorist attack because they attacked then government building.

  • Why didn’t they just call the military to control the whole chaos.
