But… but… but the media “reported” that this was a murder.
Now they say… there’s no evidence of that? At all?
Investigators are struggling to build a federal murder case regarding fallen US Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death as he defended the Capitol during last month’s insurrection.
Authorities have reviewed video and photographs that show Sicknick engaging with rioters amid the siege but have yet to identify a moment in which he suffered his fatal injuries, law enforcement officials familiar with the matter said.
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.
Whose early reports?
You mean CNN’s early reports?
The media — especially CNN — has been “reporting” that Sicknick was murdered for a month. Hit on the head with fire extinguisher by a “MAGA terrorist,” they “reported.’
As they’ve “reported” this, obviously they have this from first-hand eyewitnesses. At least two witnesses to confirm a fact.
So all the authorities have to do is ask CNN who their two first-hand eyewitnesses to this incident were.
Unless… CNN has been lying and spreading twitter rumors and second-hand claims from hy
Go back to old videos of blm and antifa riots/arrests, police shootings.
Like, for instance, the night the man who had been found passed out in his car in the drive thru at Wendy’s was shot.
Several black “eyewitnesses” claimed police just shot him without even a moment’s hesitation!
Killed him the instant he got out of his car, according to several men at the Wendy’s parking lot.
But bodycam video proved the police spoke with him for over 20 minutes before he was shot.
CNN ought to know that “eyewitnesses” lie.
There was no one who saw a fire extinguisher thrown at and hit this poor officer.
He had pre-existing conditions that were made deadly worse by pepper sprays and his own adrenaline spike.
I guess I haven’t been paying strict attention; have these media outlets been publicly retracting this false story? Or are they, aiding and abetting the repulsive Democrats who used his death as a prop for their unconstitutional impeachment of Trump (not the first one… the second unconstitutional one), continuing the lie?
They are continuing the lie. But soon, to all leftists, the name “Sicknick” will be completely forgotten and discarded.
@Nan G: Don’t forget the eyewitnesses who swore, and the racist Obama even stated before the UN, that Michael Brown was on his knees, running away, hands up, don’t shoot, trying to surrender when Officer Wilson shot him? Facts mean nothing to the left, including their minions of useful idiots, because no one holds them accountable.
If the autopsy found blunt force trauma it would have been made public or leaked.
They have targeted everyone and corporate cronies comply Bank of America Secretly Flagged Purchase History of Customers and Sent the Data to Feds After Capitol Riot, whats in your wallet?
BOA bailed out by the taxpayers needs a lesson close your accounts, transfer your CC balances, refi your house and leave them in the dirt where they belong.
@kitt: Didn’t you first break this story a couple of weeks ago?
