DC Cop Furious About Riot “Whitewashing” By Cultists: “I Experienced The Most Savage Combat Of My Life”

The Washington Post reports:

On Jan. 6, D.C. police officer Michael Fanone was swarmed by a pro-Trump mob and dragged down the Capitol steps, suffering a mild heart attack and a concussion as he was shocked with a stun gun and beaten. In the months since, Fanone said it has been “difficult” to listen to politicians like former president Donald Trump, who last month falsely claimed that rioters were actually “hugging and kissing” police, downplay the severity of the insurrection.

The Daily Beast reports:

Asked to react to conservatives who have painted the rioters as peaceful protesters, Fanone said that rhetoric was “dangerous,” adding that he “experienced a group of individuals that were trying to kill me to accomplish their goal.” Fanone found himself needing to pause and collect himself throughout the lengthy interview, apologizing for getting emotional. “I experienced the most brutal, savage hand-to-hand combat of my entire life, let alone my policing career, which spans almost two decades,” he starkly noted.
