  • I'll tell you.

  • Ah, final sad story in this kaleidoscope of sadness and terror and violence.

  • One of our capital officers who defended us that day was a long time veteran of our force, a brave and honorable public servant who spent several hours battling the mob as part of one of those blue lines defending the capital in our democracy.

  • For several hours straight, as the marauders punched and kicked and mauled and spit upon and hit officers with baseball bats and fire extinguishers, cursed the cops and stormed our capital.

  • He defended us, and he lived every minute of his oath of office and afterwards, overwhelmed by emotion, he broke down in the Rotunda and he cried for 15 minutes and he shouted out, I got called an n word 15 times today, And then he recorded.

  • I sat down with one of my buddies.

  • Another black guy in tears just started streaming down my face and I said, What the f man is this America?

  • That's the question before all of you in this trial.

  • Is this America?

  • Can our country in our democracy ever be the same if we don't hold accountable?

  • The person responsible for inciting the violent attack against our country, our capital in our democracy and all of those who serve us so faithfully and honorably.

  • Is this America?

I'll tell you.
