Two years ago when we were all being blood libeled over Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s tragic death, I wondered whether he was vaccinated. That would have been very early in the days after the initial vaccine rollout, but it still seemed like a fair question. Sicknick was not bludgeoned to death +with a fire extinguisher like the media falsely claimed. His vaccination status doesn’t seem to have played a role, either. Instead, it looks like his deadly stroke may have been induced by his fellow officers that day.
Now that some of the January 6ers are finally getting their day in court, more police bodycam videos are being obtained. New videos from the bodycam of Officer Daniel Thau shows a very different outcome for Brian Sicknick on that fateful day than any media outlet or prosecutor has previously hinted at.
First, the DC cops simply claimed that Sicknick died from injuries sustained by scuffling with protesters. Then the New York Times fabricated the “murder by fire extinguisher” story out of thin air, so the entire media and every coward in Congress ran with that story for a few days. Finally, the medical examiner revealed that Sicknick had died from a stroke the day after January 6th.
We’re still waiting for that apology from everyone in the media who blood libeled us by claiming Trump supporters killed Sicknick, but… I’m starting to think that an apology is never coming, aren’t you?
Just to be clear, we have nothing personal against Brian Sicknick or his family. By all accounts, he was a good guy and actually a hardcore Trump supporter. It’s not his fault that his death was politicized by Trump haters in Congress and the media.
But since we were all collectively blamed for his death, we deserve the truth about what really happened. Shady prosecutors and Nancy Pelosi have refused to release all the footage from that day, so we’re only just now realizing this latest bombshell news.
Officer Thau’s body camera shows that Brian Sicknick and other officers were accidentally gassed with a chemical irritant on January 6th. As Thau’s footage reveals, he was standing next to a cop named Richard Khoury who had a gas grenade launcher. Thau ordered Khoury to fire a canister at protesters who were on the scaffolding outside the US Capitol.
“Fire it in the air,” ordered Thau. “Just f***ing shoot.”
Khoury totally botched the canister launch and then asks, “What the f***?”
A big cloud of chemical irritant instead exploded in the air in front of the scaffolding, and doused the officers beneath it. Heavy winds then blew the cloud to the south, where Sicknick was stationed. He got dosed with the chemical irritant as well, whatever it was. Many officers who were enveloped by cloud, which came from friendly fire, were seen gasping for air and bent over with pain.
Thau orders a second canister of the irritant to be fired into a peaceful crowd of Trump supporters who were clearly not attacking anyone.
“Drop one in there,” ordered Thau. Moments later, officers are shouting, “Wind! Wind!”
Thau’s orders had just got the police doused with the irritant again, because it was very windy that day.
A few minutes later, Brian Sicknick shows up on the bodycam footage as well. He’s hunched over and rinsing his eyes with water. Thau’s footage then shows him helping injured officers. One police officer screams at him, “Stop doing the goddam pepper spray!”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, solves the mystery of what the chemical irritant was right there.
Wait, isn’t pepper spray supposed to be a non-lethal irritant?
Now that you’ve asked, there’s actually some solid evidence that pepper spray can cause a spike in a person’s blood pressure, which then leads to a stroke. Suddenly, Brian Sicknick’s death seems to make a little more sense, doesn’t it? Healthy police officers in their early 40s don’t normally have fatal strokes.
There’s no evidence that Brian Sicknick was ever struck in the head by any Trump supporter, with a fire extinguisher or other. We can probably rule out the vaccine, since those only came on the market in December of 2020 – it was probably too early for him to have been vaxed. But we do have video evidence that Sicknick was doused with pepper spray by the other reckless and violent cops that day. And as this 1999 study in the North Carolina Medical Journal notes, pepper spray can and does induce strokes in some people.
Here is Officer Thau’s bodycam footage, which was released in court last week:
