A Capitol police officer recalled how he broke into tears after getting verbally harassed by the MAGA mob that stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday.
As the US Capitol Police Department veteran insisted, “racist terrorists” called him the N-word 15 times after descending on the Capitol.
“I got called a n***** 15 times,” the anonymous veteran cop said in an interview with Buzzfeed.
“I sat down with one of my buddies, another black guy, and tears just started streaming down my face. I said, ‘What the f***, man? Is this America? What the f*** just happened? I’m so sick and tired of this s***.’”
According to the cop, he “just let it out” and cried for 15 minutes after being subjected to verbal harassment during the riot.
Another cop recalled how he was forced to fight off rioters after they surrounded and outnumbered him.
“We were telling them to back up and get away and stop, and they’re telling us, they are on our side, and they’re doing this for us, and they’re saying this as I’m getting punched in my face by one of them,” he claimed.
“We were getting pepper-sprayed in the face by those protesters, I’m not going to even call them protesters, by those domestic terrorists.”
As the veteran cop added in an interview with Buzzfeed, he was shocked to see a number of police officers from around the States among the rioters.
“You have the nerve to be holding a Blue Lives Matter flag, and you are out there f***ing us up,” the officer allegedly told a member of the mob that forced its way into the Capitol.
“[One man] pulled out his badge and he said, ‘We’re doing this for you.’ Another guy had his badge. So I was like, ‘Well, you gotta be kidding.’”
The veteran police officers also insisted that the rioters were “heavily trained” and that they came prepared and equipped with radios, communicators, explosives, and homemade bombs.
“If you’re going to treat a group of demonstrators for Black Lives Matters one way, then you should treat this group the same goddamn way,” he added as he implied that some police officers reacted to the rioters in a lenient way.
“With this group you were being kind and nice and letting them walk back out. Some of them got arrested but a lot of them didn’t. Everyone who came into that Capitol should have been arrested regardless if they didn’t take anything.”
