Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes, medical examiner rules

No.828975 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The death of a Capitol Police officer shortly after the Jan. 6 Capitol riots was a natural death resulting from two strokes, according to medical officials.

Officer Brian D. Sicknick suffered the strokes after the day’s violence had ended and there is no evidence of injuries related to them, the District of Columbia medical examiner said in a statement.

The autopsy found no evidence that Sicknick suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants and the death would not have been ruled “natural” had any riot-related injuries even contributed to the strokes.

“Natural — Used when a disease alone causes death. If death is hastened by an injury, the manner of death is not considered natural,” the chief medical examiner’s statement explains.

Such a reaction would be key in some of the cases filed against the Capitol rioters in Sicknick’s death — two men have been accused of spraying a chemical irritant at him during the siege, but whether that constitutes homicide or assault depends on medical evidence.

At about 10 p.m., after the riot had ended, Sicknick returned to his office, where he collapsed. He died the next day.

Sicknick’s cause of death, and its relationship to the riots, has been a bone of contention for months.

Some early media reports said he had had his skull crushed by a fire extinguisher or other missile hurled by the rioters.

Acting U.S. attorney general Jeffrey A. Rosen said in a Jan. 8 statement that Sicknick died of “the injuries he suffered defending the U.S. Capitol” and the Capitol Police had also said that Sicknick “was injured while physically engaging with protesters.”

EU estimates 150000 Russian troops near Ukraine's borders

BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union’s foreign policy chief said Monday that in the face of the big military buildup of Russian troops near Ukraine’s borders, it will only take “a spark” to set off a confrontation.

In a glum assessment of relations with Moscow, Josep Borrell also said that the condition of imprisoned Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was “critical” and that the 27-nation group would hold the Kremlin accountable for his health and safety.

Despite the developments, Borrell said after a virtual meeting of the EU foreign ministers that, “for the time being, there is no move in the field of more sanctions” to be imposed on Russia.

He also said there wasn’t a request for a synchronized EU diplomatic move of expulsions in the standoff between Czech Republic, an EU member state, and Russia following Prague’s accusation that Moscow was involved in a 2014 ammunition depot explosion.

FedEx shooter is yet another white supremacy asshole who blames the world for his shitty inability to develop into a full person.

“ After his mother told officers on March 3 that she feared for her safety after her son purchased a gun a day earlier, the IMPD detained Hole, seized the gun, put him on an immediate mental health temporary hold and then transported him to a local hospital for evaluation, the police report said.”

“ As Hole was being placed in handcuffs, he became anxious and said, "Please just turn the power strip off on my computer" and "I don't want anyone to see what's on it," according to the report. One officer, who was described as clearing the upstairs and securing the shotgun, "observed what through his training and experience" were White supremacist websites, the report said.”

What Happens If Derek Chauvin Is Convicted, Or If He’s Acquitted?

https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2021/04/17/what-happens-if-derek-chauvin-is-convicted-or-if-hes-acquitted/

The fate of Derek Chauvin should be in the hands of the jury by Monday afternoon. Monday morning both sides will give their closing arguments and then the jury begins deliberations. They’ll be sequestered, meaning they’ll spend the night in a hotel and be escorted by deputies to and from the courthouse.

Testimony complete in Derek Chauvin trial after former cop says he will not testify

https://www.cbsnews.com/live-updates/derek-chauvin-trial-george-floyd-death-testimony-complete-2021-04-15/

Testimony is now complete in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the fired Minneapolis police officer charged in George Floyd's death. The defense rested its case Thursday after Chauvin said he will not testify in his own defense. Chauvin spoke in court from the defense table just after court resumed on Thursday.

"I will invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege today," Chauvin said.

Prosecutors then re-called to the stand Dr. Martin Tobin, a pulmonologist who offered key testimony for the prosecution last week, saying Floyd died of low oxygen under the pressure of officers' weight on his neck, back and side. Thursday, Tobin rebutted some of the testimony of forensic pathologist Dr. David Fowler, who testified for the defense that Floyd suffered a heart arrhythmia due to his underlying heart disease.

Judge Peter Cahill excused the jury after Tobin's testimony. He told jurors to return at 9 a.m. Monday for closing arguments, after which they will be sequestered for deliberations.

Corporations and Conservative Defeat Bid by American Workers to Unionize Amazon Warehouse

40 years of constantly villainizing and destroying Unions would lead to people thinking slave labor is a better option.

https://apnews.com/article/amazon-warehouse-workers-reject-union-alabama-5f73ee6c32d179d60540df7ec51b6ac7

Workers at an Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama handed the online retail giant a decisive victory when they voted against forming a union and cut off a path that labor activists had hoped would lead to similar efforts throughout the company and beyond.

After months of aggressive campaigning from both sides, 1,798 warehouse workers ultimately rejected the union while 738 voted in favor of it, according to the National Labor Relations Board, which is overseeing the process.

Of the 3,117 votes cast, 76 were voided for being filled out incorrectly and 505 were contested by either Amazon or the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which led the organizing efforts in Bessemer. But the NLRB said the contested votes were not enough to sway the outcome. About 53% of the nearly 6,000 workers cast their ballots.

The union said it would file an objection with the NLRB charging the company with illegally interfering with the union vote. It will seek a hearing with the labor board to determine if the results “should be set aside” after it accused Amazon of spreading disinformation about the unionization effort at meetings that workers were required to attend.

“Amazon has left no stone unturned in its efforts to gaslight its own employees. We won’t let Amazon’s lies, deception and illegal activities go unchallenged,” said Stuart Appelbaum, the president of the RWDSU.

Amazon said in a statement that it didn’t intimidate employees.

Maxine Waters tells Minnesota BLM protesters 'to get more confrontational' one day after violent anti-police clashes erupted across US

California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday after the death of Daunte Wright.

Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to 'to get more confrontational' - just one day after protests descended into violence.'I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,' Waters said. 'We're looking for a guilty verdict,' she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial. 'If we don't, we cannot go away.' 'We gotta stay on the street,' Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed 'to get more confrontational' and they should ignore the curfew in place.

Her comments sparked outrage on Twitter.

'Of course she’ll get away with saying that while anyone else would’ve been thrown in jail,' Rick Santella tweeted.Another user tweeted, 'Good grief lady, leave get out of here.'One person also accused Waters of 'stirring people up again with her calls for violence.'

Hunter Biden: I was so crack-addled, I forgot pants — but I was also very qualified for Burisma

>So much for owning up to all your faults.

>“You say you don’t know,” Kimmel said to Hunter, “which is hard to believe unless you read the book. I’m surprised you have shoes on.”
>“Pants were the problem,” Hunter quips.
>Yet believe him when he says he was totally, 100 percent qualified to sit on the board of Burisma.
More money is rolling in for the President's crackhead son. He has a new book out, and is making cash from doing interviews with the people who supported his daddy. It must be nice to have this kind of privilege, the kind that exists in front of the entire world, and no one seems to care. Meanwhile the left is demanding that blue collar whites apologize for their 'privilege'. This country has become rotten to it's core.
