Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s Killer is Identified

THE FBI has released a photo of a suspect that they want in connection to the murder of Capitol officer Brian Sicknick.

Senator Bill Cassidy posted on Twitter a photo of an older bearded man wearing a blue knit cap with the letters "CFD."

Judging by the hat, he might be a fireman. How ironic he chose a fire extinguisher when he murdered a police officer

by Anonymousreply 101/12/2021

So many of these guys they're having trouble identifying. Sounds like many live anonymously in trailers on disability somewhere in Podunk. Angry Old White Men obsessed with hating minorities.

Nobody wants to admit this is a civil war against anyone who isn't a white, heterosexual, Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Looks at the flags. Listen to their rhetoric.

When they lost Trump and lost their dream to put us all in concentration camps.

He'll be busted by midnight. I hope his truck has a full tank because that getaway aint gonna fuel itself.

I heard they were still looking for the guy with the huge Confederate flag who walked though the Capitol with said flag last week. They've managed to get so many of the others, I bet he's in hiding.

by Anonymousreply 401/12/2021

Those types can't evade detection forever.

If they traipse around with Confederate flag safe to assume they are no friend of black people... it may not be tonight or tomorrow but I bet it doesn't take til next month for somebody to recognize that terrorist and make the call.

Here in Pennsylvania, if a former state employee/retiree is convicted of a felony, they forfeit their pension.

Hopefully, Illinois has just such a statute.

Federal charges for killing a Capitol police officer. Can I witness the execution? I'll bring the popcorn. Buttered right?

The second line in your post is nonsense, R2. There were black and latino men, grandmothers, gays at the rally and even at the insurrection. There are even gay and lesbian republicans. I am not one of them, before you call me nazis white supremacist or something equally ridiculous. Trump got 12% of the black vote and 31% of the Latino vote. The truth matters now more than ever. Stop your incitement of hatred.

I hope they arrest as many of these insurrectionists as possible and that justice will be bold and merciless, especially the murderer of P.O. Sicknick.

He's white, r14. He will cry and exert his white male privilege and he gets off with manslaughter and parole.

I can't say I saw any grandmothers, the picture of the granny that went viral on Twitter was from the Kansas statehouse, not the Capitol building.

There were maybe 3 black men we've seen so far and a couple guys who looked Latino. The vast, VAST majority were white men plus a good chunk of white women.

The demographics of the insurrectionists do not line up with the demographics of the people who voted for Trump.

I wouldn’t have thought that throwing a fire extinguisher would be forceful enough to kill someone. I thought, when I first heard of the incident, that he was clubbed over the head with it. Terrible, regardless.

He did support Trump (not that it should matter) but by all accounts he was a great guy and did not let his political beliefs interfere with his job.

And that's what he was doing, his job, when he sustained a fatal injury at the Capitol last week.

by Anonymousreply 4101/12/2021

Trump may very well pardon him, but to accept the protections he has to admit guilt which will then open him up to civil prosecution. The City of Chicago can easily deny his retirement benefits on the basis of his guilty plea to a felony, so even if he never spends a minute behind bars, his cushy, taxpayer-funded retirement is gone.

The letters on the cap (CFD) were altered with black tape. The AI-enhanced image, taken from video, is inaccurate. See link for explanation.

FYI, John Scott Railton is doing an incredible job of collecting images and asking the public's help in identifying the culprits.

by Anonymousreply 5301/13/2021

R52, the tweets you link show they weren't altered, that the bits that look like tape are artifacts from the image being enlarged.

[quote]Another person sought to help by "enhancing" the photo using sharpening and de-noising tools. While readers in this thread acknowledged this process created artifacts, the "enhanced" image was posted out of context in other threads, causing problems

[quote]...sleuths started taking the photo's artificial details seriously. One person speculated that the hat's artifacts were actually hidden letters intentionally covered over.

[quote]Eventually, others posted additional video footage and pointed to image compression as the likely source of the artifacts...

About Brian Sicknick from The New York Post so take it for what you will:

[quote] he had written letters to his congressman opposing Trump’s impeachment.

[quote] Like many Trump supporters who are now being censored, he ­believed that the system is fundamentally rigged in favor of a narrow elite. He had used fiery rhetoric, even called for regime change in America.

[quote] He was deployed to Saudi Arabia and Kyrgyzstan. A series of letters he later wrote to the editor of his hometown paper give a portrait of his disillusionment with the leaders of the country he served.

[quote] He ­denounced the “arrogant oil hacks that occupy the White House” and complained that the Bush administration had “its hands grasped firmly on the puppet strings of conservative senators.” His conclusion was stark: “I believe we should have regime change right here in America.”

[quote] In 2004, he poured scorn on Team Bush’s proposal to ­revive space exploration. Why go to space, he wondered, when “the health-care system is in shambles, and many Americans have simply given up looking for jobs”?

[quote] After serving his country and observing the workings of its government, Sicknick had come to believe that America is governed by a self-interested, unresponsive and unaccountable oligarchy. There is ample evidence to support his beliefs. Biden and Sen. Chuck Schumer, both of whom voted to authorize the invasion, have suffered no consequences for their folly. Nor have the countless other supporters of the invasion who populate Congress, K Street and the think tanks

[quote] The same people who launched a costly and failed war in Iraq now hope to humiliate and silence Trump’s supporters. But the concerns that led to the rise of Trump won’t disappear until our failed elites pay for their mistakes.

He sounded like another Trump cult follower, hated Bush but loves Trump when Trump supported some of the same things that he hated Bush for doing.

So they’re no closer to finding even just a video or still image of the person who killed the cop? Is that the takeaway? This is a bit confusing.
