But that doesn’t mean we should let our defender down. I truly feel, though, Jim, for the constabulary officers who stood guard determination today, who also stood defender astatine the Capitol, and may person suffered injuries on January 6th. This indispensable person been triggering and traumatizing, and this vigil is held astatine a clip erstwhile one, these radical aren’t worthy of a vigil, but two, galore officers have not yet adjacent returned to the capitol from the injuries they suffered. So it would beryllium similar having a September 11th vigil, for the hijackers.
