AOC on the Capitol Hill Police: ‘Not Knowing if an Officer Is There to Help You or Harm You’ Was Traumatizing

By Grabien Staff


OCASIO-CORTEZ: “As we saw, there were members of Capitol Police who were quite heroic. You know, we have many officers and, you know, there were also black and brown officers that were confronting white supremacists and putting themselves not just to protect members, but they put themselves in harm's way, on the front line, facing the racist violence of white supremacists ordered by Donald Trump to attack the Capitol. So there were those acts of heroism. But next to that, there was also acts of betrayal. And to run in the Capitol, in our nation’s capital, and not know if an officer is there to help you or to harm you is also quite traumatizing."
