The U.S. Department of Justice announced on the 8th local time thatA total of 13 people are currently facing federal charges for "suspicion of participating in the Capitol attack on the 6th."The Ministry of Justice also said,In addition to these people who have been identified and accused,The investigation of other suspects is also being stepped up.The impact on the Capitol on the 6th has caused five deaths.
The demonstrators fought at the Lincoln Memorial, the police "let alone"
And on January 6, local time,After the U.S. Capitol was hit by Trump supporters,7th,Trump supporters gathered outside the Lincoln Memorial to protest.On the 7th,Some Trump supporters gathered grandly outside the Lincoln Memorial,Protesting and demonstrating continued with slogans such as "America First" and "Fight for Trump".however,No police or National Guard members were seen around.This is in stark contrast to the "Black People's Fate" protest in June last year.
"Friendly" treatment of demonstrators why US police double standards
Trump supporters violently attacked Congress on the 6th,While shocking the world,Many Americans can't help but ask: Congress, the highest legislative body in the United States,Is it undefended?What are the policemen who are responsible for the security of Congress doing?
Take the initiative to remove the fence to make way for the demonstrators, help the demonstrators step by step down the stairs, and take selfies with the demonstrators,These American police's treatment of those who violently attacked Congress is staggering.
No wonder some netizens sarcastically posted on social media: "The police are really nice.Are you kidding me?"
To know, During last year's “Black People's Fate” demonstration in Washington,The demonstrators faced tear gas many times,Many people were arrested by the police.88 people were arrested in one demonstration alone.And in many parades on the 6th,The police arrested 52 people in total,Of these, only 26 were arrested in Congress.
California Democrat Federal Representative Karen Bass: I think this is an example of "double standard".It is clear.The police believe that "the life of a black man is also a life" is more deadly,But the fact is just the opposite.
Joe Scarborough, TV host of Microsoft-National Broadcasting Corporation: If these thugs are black,The police would shoot them in the face.If these thugs are Muslims,They will be killed from the top of the building.So what I want to know from the Congressional Police Department is what is going on?Just because the mob is white,Or is it because they are Trump supporters? Why do you usually find bad guys wandering around Capitol Hill,But when Trump's supporters come, you open the door for them.You opened the door for them,Let them break into the U.S. Congress,What's wrong with you guys?
Lack of preparation?American police accused of "intentional"
Trump supporters who face violence against Congress,In addition to being friendly, the police in charge of Congress' security workIt also changed the face of the enemy in the face of the "Black people's fate" movement.It turned out to be insufficiently prepared.What is going on here?
In this video,Facing the crowd of demonstrators,The Congress police fled.And in the scenes of many demonstrators attacking Congress,There has been an obvious lack of police force.Someone can't help but ask such questions.
California Democrat Federal Representative Karen Bass: How can the police be vulnerable? Everyone knows that violence will happen.Do the police do not go online to understand people's conditions?
In this regard,Some experts said,Some police officers of the Congressional Police Department were unable to attend duty because of the COVID-19 infection.But this is not the decisive factor-the biggest reason for not responding in the first time is the underestimation of the number of demonstrators and the speed of their actions.
Former US Capitol Police Chief Terry Gayner: There should be heavily armed police officers coming out,Drive the demonstrators off the steps and platforms.If you don't have strong power, Such a drive away would be very unbearable and difficult.
However, the US police protested against "black people's fate is also fate",But it has always been well prepared, like a big enemy.During the peaceful demonstration held at the Lincoln Memorial in June last year,The National Guard was fully armed early on,Stand up.This sharp contrast has also triggered heated discussions among netizens.
On the left is the U.S. Congress during the "Black people's fate" protest.On the right is the U.S. Congress when it was occupied by Trump supporters.Do you see the problem?
The police confronting the "black man's life is also his life" protesters and the police confronting Trump supporters.
Security personnel and congressional security personnel in the fight against "Black people's fate is also fate".
Derek Johnson, President of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People: If this shock to Congress is a group of young people, If organized under the banner of "Black people's fate is fate",The number of law enforcement personnel will be three times what is seen now.
Organizers of the "Black People's Fate" Campaign: The lack of police preparation is their own choice.The police station holds 4.600 million dollars of money ignored all this,Pretend this is not domestic terrorism.
News Watch丨"Congress has fallen" pierced the "filter" of American democracy
The US Congress was shocked,Strongly shaken the foundation of the American political system.Some people say that the United States is a "lighthouse" and an "international leader".Is this really true?Let us look at the real America.
The New York Times pointed out thatThis is a "smashing blow" to America's troubled democratic image.
Questioned the publication of Slate magazine in the United States,What right does the United States still have to point fingers at the democracy of other countries?
American media analysis believes thatThe shock event of Congress completely pushed American democracy to the edge of the cliff.It also exposed the three long-standing "original sins" in the American political system.
American democracy divides society into two and intensifies opposition
First of all,The two-party factions and left-right camps of American democracy,Divide society into two,Oppose each other,It causes hatred to grow and destroys the trust foundation of the entire society.As a by-product of American democracy,"Division of camps" is prevalent in today's American society.Everyone is labeled left or right, liberal or conservative, democratic or republic, etc.People gradually lose the ability to discuss issues rationally,Instead, the instinct to form cliques.
Secondly,The "one person, one vote" and "free speech" promoted by American democracy seem fair.It is actually very easy to be manipulated by others,Become a deceptive tool.
American democracy is inefficient and weakens national power
third,American democracy greatly reduces the efficiency of the government,Weakened national power.The U.S. government has always struggled to establish an effective and unified epidemic prevention strategy during the epidemic.Caused the epidemic to get out of control,It is an example.According to public opinion,The current social conflicts in the United States are intensifying,The seeds of opposition have been planted,When either party comes to power, the other party will counterattack.American democracy loses face in front of the world,This self-proclaimed beacon of democracy is struggling in the crisis of democratic bankruptcy.
