A Capitol Police officer who works the night shift said he and others expected to work on the day of the attack but were sent home

Ashley Collman 5 hours ago

A US Capitol Police officer blamed department leadership for leaving the force understaffed last week for the pro-Trump protest that resulted in rioters storming the Capitol building and wreaking havoc.

The officer asked to remain anonymous, citing department policy not to talk to the media without permission.

He said he was working the night shift last week and found it "puzzling" that he and his colleagues were sent home earlier than expected on Wednesday. He also said nobody asked him to come back after the attack.

. . .

The officer said everybody in the department knew in advance about the pro-Trump march and thought it would be an all-hands-on-deck situation.

4. Meanwhile others are thinking of self harm...

"The US Capitol Police has had to respond to "a couple of incidents" of officers threatening to harm themselves in the wake of the attack on Capitol Hill. This includes a female officer who turned in her own weapon for fear of what might happen."
