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

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.

    Trump caused this entire thing and is as equally responsible for people's deaths as the people who stormed the capital. He would of been tried and jailed already if he was anyone else. This is why so many people are tired of the government, because they get preferential treatment.

    BEFORE: Storm the Capitol, Overturn the Election, and Trump has Our Back
    AFTER: Expensive Legal Fees, Felony Charges and Prison Time, Zero Proof of Election Fraud…..and Trump NEVER had Your Back!!!!!

    This is so disturbing! If they saw Nancy Pelosi would they have hurt her or just screamed at her. I just can't believe this happened.

    A lot of crime happening in one video but it’s taking 200 years just to hold them accountable. The small few that were, barely serving any time.

    they just look so pathetic. a lone man, a reality star, can so easily manipulate their low IQ brain's, get them all arrested, and where is he now for them? NOWHERE. that's the funniest part! And why do they all look like they live in the backwoods of west virginia? They are so stereotypical, it's comical.

    I couldn’t sleep that night, of course. I was on Twitter and I follow Igor Bobic who is the journalist who shot the footage of Officer Goodman on his phone. He just happened to have been in the stairwell at the time. He couldn’t sleep either and was going through the footage frame by frame and coming to realize exactly how resourceful and brave Officer Goodman had been. How deliberate his actions. It made the hairs on the back of my neck rise. It was wonderful to see him at the Inauguration.

    funny, tragic and why didn't the guy with the gun when they were entering the house chamber shoot a warning shot or something when they were smashing the windows?

  • WhynottBelieve

    Were any of the protesters carrying firearms? I ask because I remember seeing reports probably" cnn" that some of these groups had done much previous planning, scouting out intel on the building and encouaging others to come and join them.

    When demons, in the sight of God above, accuse you of doing what they alone are doing, and are seeking the maximum in damages, the only hope for the salvation of your eternal soul, is a personal prayer relationship with Lord of all, King Christ Jesus. Trust and serve God The Father, His Word and Son, to stand at Judgment, to enter His Righteous Kingdom of Truth and Love Eternal. Halleluia.

  • Crystal Lauder

    Watching saying, “This can’t be real”🤦🏾‍♂️ How where they not “shot” Clearly the Capital was under a attack. They broke windows, looking at documents and they where allowed to continue.🤦🏾‍♂️ They were making threats to drag people out. How!??? This is like a movie to me.😮🤦🏾‍♂️
