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."

What say you, bitch?
The NPA should hold their own “investigation” of Antifa, BLM, Feguson, Kenosha, etc.
They will “own the floor” and bring in whoever they want to testify about the rioting, attacks on police, etc. This would make a good documentary for Newsmax or Fox to show, along with conservative podcast sites, etc.
If you want to present the truth, you can’t do it in this Marxist, anti police and anti-white congress. You’ve got to do it yourself.
[PS: I’ve been in two national documentaries. One on Vietnam and the other on internal security. Our audiences like hearing the truth for once.)
“sat there watching the testimony thinking, ‘Wait, where are the police officers who appeared – appeared – to let some of the protesters in?” she asked”
I have wondered that.
We would call the enquiry a whitewash in the UK, although I am not sure what word to use these days.
Interesting, but it will not make any difference to the CNN crowd. America is being divided into hostile groups for a reason.

And videos exist proving the fact in the West WIng of the Capitol Building.It’s public knowledge which cannot be suppressed.
I was at Bien Hoa. The place really sucked.
I believe there's video that documents at least 350 people were waved into the Capitol. I wish I could remember where I saw that. Probably on Bannon.
Only the police in Wash. D.C. matter? All police matter.
If the XiNN crowd was that big, Deep State wouldn’t have to steal elections, would it?
It’s in Deep State’s interest for us to think we’re a house divided.
Don’t accommodate it.
Be careful they will defund you.
Was there ever a leader of the group? Were there a declaration of war or attack implying the overthrow of the government? Seems like key elements in an insurrection.
Good luck with that. Ain’t no veranda opices going to be investigated.
When does the real shooting start
There is an obvious division between red-blue in this nation mostly based on big city - small city. In the South, many people still think they are Democrat, not realizing the party has left them behind. I can also see the victim mentality in many less well off. You can see a choice between corrupt Democrats and corrupt Republicans with each side having cheer leaders. In the South, some people still think they are Republican, not realizing the party has left them behind, too. I frequently see a Pavlovian hatred of Trump caused by the MSM . “Divide the country into hostile groups has been part of the communist plans for America for over 100 Years.
More folks doing what McCarthy is too chickenshit to do.
“In the South, many people still think they are Democrat, not realizing the party has left them behind”
Yeah, okay. Election results for Alabama:
✓*Donald J. Trump (Republican) 1,441,170 62.2%
Joe Biden (Democratic) 849,378 36.7%
Jo Jorgensen (Libertarian) 25,176 1.1%
“Half of the state’s residents (50%) identify as Republicans or lean toward the Republican Party, while a third identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party (33%).”
What “south” are you talking about? What is your expertise on southern politics?
We will probably never get the truth of the Jan. 6 incident because it would tend to implicate the right people.
