US Capitol Police Officer Kills Himself 3 Days After Siege

I think we are going to see major increases of suicides from all walks of life this year.. especially if the terrorism continues.

I think there have already been reports of this due to Covid.

He was so ashamed of collaborating with the Trump Terrorists whom he likely supported in the wake of his colleague's death.

Good. The ones who did little should all kill themselves right now.

by Anonymousreply 101/10/2021

Is there evidence supporting that, r1, or is that your conjecture? The article is from three days ago, but it doesn’t mention anything other than that an officer died. I’m not clear about why OP claims it was suicide.

by Anonymousreply 201/10/2021

R1- I don't know if that is true, yet? I don't think ALL of the police were complicit, but it is clear the level of collusion here in this terrorism is beyond what any of us can even comprehend. We are going end up in the McCarthy era if we just half assed blame everyone- Many of these folks were probably just doing their jobs. Shame on Trump for this evil he has brought to us. And shame on those who are a part of it.

by Anonymousreply 301/10/2021

R2- There is a better report at the Daily Mail, but I know this site hates that site.

It looks like suicide.

by Anonymousreply 401/10/2021

R3 They were not “all complicit” and it is both unintelligent and heartless to claim that they were.

The police officer below was dragged facedown and beaten by a group of MAGA terrorists.

Also, the police officer that died as a result of Wednesday's events is the one that was crushed in a doorway, which has been covered extensively here and elsewhere.

Are you suggesting there's a second police officer that died?

Capitol cop, 51, 'kills himself' three days after fellow officer was killed by rioters who bashed his skull with fire extinguisher during Congress siege

Officer Howard Liebengood, 51, died while off-duty on Saturday, the USCP said

Cause of death was not disclosed but sources said Liebengood took his own life

Liebengood is the second USCP officer to die in the days after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Wednesday

Officer Brian Sicknick died Thursday after reportedly having been hit over the head by a fire extinguisher during the riots

The USCP made no suggestion that Liebengood's death was linked to the riots

by Anonymousreply 1101/10/2021

The most recent death was Howard Liebengood, a veteran of the USCP; I don't think you should assume he was "complicit" in anything. He was a 13 year vet of the force & his father played a role capitol security.

While there were certainly officers complicit in that mess, there were also a lot officers that did their best under terrible circumstances, were poorly served by their leadership & undermined by repigs. Defending the capital was the work of this guy's life and the USCP failed badly on Wednesday. It's really tragic

And your response says that I said "All of the police were complicit".

And I certainly do not think all were complicit. Not even close.

Anyway, its just tragic if the officer killed himself because of what he saw. That's the only reason I posted.

This thread was a disaster and I will think twice before starting another. May the gentleman rest in peace.

[quote] This thread was a disaster and I will think twice before starting another.

Honey, if you want to know why it was a disaster, it was in part because you utterly confused us by linking to an old story about the cop that was crushed. It is clearer now that there were two separate police officers (bringing the total to 6 people dead after Wednesday's horrific events). But that was not what you originally posted.

The half of us who would probably have otherwise agreed and not trolled were confused as to what the fuck you were trying to say...

Stop. The DC police officer being crushed in that horrible video is O.K, according to the former DC police chief (on CNN), who got that from the current DC police chief.

Officer Sicknick, who was hit on the head with a fire extinguisher, did die from that injury. And that's what the linked article at the OP is about.

I'll be the first to say that it's too early to know for sure, and there is indeed a great deal of fog yet to clear surrounding what happened at the Capitol on Wednesday, but the handwriting (or should I say smears of shit?) are on the wall and it doesn't look good for the USCP.

There were heroes. There were also villains.

There is a reckoning coming, however. If the rumors of off-duty police and firemen flashing their badges to gain entry; of current and former US military personnel participating, using their knowledge and experience gained at taxpayer expense against those very taxpayers; of members of the Republican caucus providing aid and comfort; or as we've seen proven without doubt, of newly-elected state representatives not just attending but live streaming their crimes as they worked at the forefront of the seditious attack on the People; then, I say show no mercy.

And frankly, if I were in the position of having supported this crime, let alone actually participating, I'd be seriously considering suicide as an alternative, too.

by Anonymousreply 3601/10/2021

[quote] the second Ofc. Sicknick who was injured when crushed in a door and later died from injuries.

JFC. I now see how rumors get started.

Sicknick went back to his office and had a stroke. There has been claims he was hit with a fire extinguisher but there’s no sources for that.

I would think if he was beaten to death by someone with a fire extinguisher at a minimum his union would’ve released that information. So far they’ve released he died later in the day “after an incident at the Capitol.”

Either way, he was NOT a police officer crushed in a door.

by Anonymousreply 3701/10/2021

Sicknick wasn’t crushed in a door. He died from head injuries. There were quite a few injured; I expect the young cop caught in the door was one of those injured.

A second cop who responded to the riot died, but not on duty. Perhaps he ended his life, but the CNN article doesn’t say.

by Anonymousreply 3801/10/2021

R37, even the NY Post has said that Sicknick was bludgeoned to death.

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 3901/10/2021

Yes, but that comes from one source and one source only, a Politico reporter named Ryan Lizza. No other sources have confirmed this and his own union is merely saying he was injured and died as a result of his injuries.

Their statement, however, has changed from their original in which they said he died after an incident at the Capitol. At that time it was widely circulated that we went back to his office and collapsed. One who is bludgeoned to death does not walk back to their office.

That’s why we’re required to get and vet, confirm and reconfirm with multiple sources for information before it’s published.

This thread is heartbreaking. Reading more of the horrors some of the police suffered that day...well, I don’t know what else to say. The police have gotten so much bad press in the past year, but I believe there are far more good cops than bad. The fact that some are committing suicide or were badly injured that day or even killed - these rioters need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

by Anonymousreply 4901/10/2021

r48- Someone did. Either staff, or police or Matt Goetz or Devin Nunes or Louie Gomert or Ted Cruz or, any other Nazi.

He committed suicide to avoid prosecution. His dad was a pal of Manafort.

According to journalist Yashar Ali, writing on Twitter, “Liebengood’s father, also Howard Liebengood, died in 2005. He was the Senate Sargeant at Arms in the early 1980s and then became a powerful lobbyist and an associate of Paul Manafort’s.”

Stop.

The Capitol Police said Sicknick succumbed to injuries inflicted “while physically engaging” with pro-Trump rioters Wednesday. That, however, appears to be a euphemism for beaten to death by Trump supporters, as officials told the New York Times that Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher by rioters. “He returned to his division office and collapsed,” the Capitol Police said in the statement. “He was taken to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.”
