On Wednesday The National Police Association spokeswoman Betsy Brantner Smith told FOX News the Pelosi commission is a “dog and pony show”. She wants an investigation into the George Floyd riots.
By comparison, the Floyd riots caused more damage than a thousand January 6th riots and there were 700 police injured in just one month.
Meanwhile, the Democrats continue to blame the death of a Capitol cop on the protesters even though he died after suffering two strokes.
There was one person murdered on January 6th. Ashli Babbitt was murdered by a Capitol police officer. She was unarmed when the officer shot her in the neck, killing her.
In Minneapolis alone, BLM damaged or destroyed 1,500 buildings. Total insurance claims for the BLM/antifa riots are between 1 and 2 billion dollars. That is between 1000 and 2000 times the estimated 1 million dollars in damages from January 6th.

The National Police Association on Wednesday slammed Congress’ investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as a politically motivated “dog and pony show” that has no intention of uncovering the truth of what really happened that day.
In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, association spokeswoman Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police sergeant who describes herself as a conservative, said Congress should hear from the thousands of police officers who were injured during the George Floyd riots last year.
“People need to see that police officers go through horrible things, and Jan. 6 was a horrible thing for some of those officers,” she said. “But, quite frankly, I find this whole Jan. 6 Commission, frankly, a dog and pony show. It doesn’t tell the whole story.”
“Myself, like millions of Americans, sat there watching the testimony thinking, ‘Wait, where are the police officers who appeared – appeared – to let some of the protesters in?” she asked. “Where is the police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt? In fact, why aren’t we talking about Ashli Babbitt? I mean there’s so much more here.”
This is a kangaroo court, not a serious investigation. If it were they would bring in the officer who murdered Ashli Babbitt and Nancy Pelosi, who turned down Trump’s offer of National Guard troops to keep violence from occurring.
If Trump truly wanted violence, why would he offer National Guard troops. And why aren’t the cops who let protesters into the Capitol testifying?
