For those who are still questioning the police suicides related to 1/6

I would ask you to read this from the USA Today. Howie’s wife has some valid points. His death was caused by the insurrection and its aftermath. His death may not have been at the Capitol, but it was caused by his work that day and the immediate days after.

He had a good life, beautiful wife and a lot to look forward to. There was a lot of trauma that day. A lot of trauma

It is simple, they are selfish fucktards. We tend to overcomplicate things, they are selfish fucktards.

Death threats continued to arrive daily by phone from constituents who were convinced that Democrats had stolen the election. “It absolutely broke me to know that people would be fine if my boss was dead, if I was dead, if my co-workers were dead,” she said. “The American people stopped believing in the institution. And if they don’t believe in it, what the hell are any of us doing working for it……:

….. A month after the insurrection, Richards returned to the Capitol and walked with Scanlon through Statuary Hall, a setting that typically inspired in her a sense of awe. Instead, she could not help but think about the insurrectionists who had been there, an association she compared to the “stench” of a house fire that takes “forever to get out.”
“It felt like something bad had happened, and I didn’t want to be there anymore,” she sai…..
