I don’t typically write about politics on my blog, but I wanted to say it’s powerful to listen today to the testimony by four police officers about the riot at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6. Videos from that day were mind-blowing in the violence toward officers. The testimony from the four officers feels more detailed, as they relay their experiences of being attacked and injured.
The officers who are testifying: Harry Dunn, Aquilino Gonell, Michael Fanone, and Daniel Hodges. The first two are from the U.S. Capitol Police, and the second two are from the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department.
I’m listening on NPR, and they have an article about it here.
