When Michael Fanone (a DC Metropolitan police officer) was put down on the ground at the United States Capitol, wounded and stunned, he recognized a bunch of protestors were disrobing him of his stuff. Rioters have taken his ammunition, stole his badge, and ripped his radio off his chest.
After this, the police officer had been Tasered many times on the backside of his neck, and he heard something scary that forced him to go away in survival mode. Fanone said that some guys started getting a hold of his gun, and they were screaming out and saying, “Kill him with his own gun.”
Fanone served the police department for two decades
Fanone had been serving for around 2 decades. He is one of the three police officers who described to CNN, his experience hostile battling with the riot of President Trump’s followers who had attacked the United States Capitol. Moreover, federal regulators have described the details of the violence that will be disturbing.
On Tuesday, in reference to attack on police officers, acting the United States Attorney Michael Sherwin described that people are going to be shocked by some of the egregious contacts that occurred in the United States Capitol.
The police officer, Fanone, a detective who operates in plain clothes, heard some screamy noises at the US Capitol and gripped his brand-new uniform that was hanging in his locker and wore it for the first time, Fanone said. Furthermore, he ran to the Capitol with his companion and assisted police officers who were being attacked by pro-Trump protestors.
Fanone explained that he was dragged into a mob where rioters have lost their control, and it was his biggest nightmare. The father of four kids described that the other option he thought of was to try to appeal to someone’s humanity, and he just remembers yelling out that he has children that seemed to work.
A bunch of rioters protected him by creating a circle around him until help arrives and his life was saved. Being protocetid by rioters, Fanone said that thank you, but f***you. On Thursday, acting MPD Chief Robert Contee said that some things that they saw on the ground were some indication that there were a few coordination going on, but he thinks as they get more into the investigation, a lot of that will be unfolded.
