Skip to comments.‘I deserve to know the truth’: Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn
Posted on 08/30/2022 11:23:11 AM PDT by RandFan
For seven weeks, Harry Dunn sat in the same seat before the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Attack.
Cameras pointed in his direction snapped photos of his every reaction as details of the insurrection were shared with the public.
Dunn looked on, not paying the photographers any mind. He was there for one reason: to hear the truth.
Dunn, who is Black, was thrown into the spotlight in the weeks following the attack.
The Capitol Police officer’s testimony before Congress detailed the horrors he faced on Jan. 6, 2021, from facing down the mob’s deluge of racial hatred to wondering if he’d make it home alive that night.
“What people have to realize is that I’m not only a police officer, but I’m a victim,” Dunn told The Hill. “I’m an American citizen who cares about this country and wants to see it do right. I’m a patriot. I’m a voter. I’m a taxpaying citizen. This is my country and I deserve to know the truth and make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
As Congress prepares to reconvene in September, Dunn said he’ll be back in the chamber to watch, listen and wait for that truth as the Jan. 6 panel heads toward its conclusion.
An imposing figure standing at 6 foot 7, Dunn, 38, speaks passionately but kindly. He’s unafraid to share his opinion and occasionally, when especially fired up, he’ll let a swear word slip. But he’s also quick to laugh and keep things lighthearted.

What does he think of all those people locked up in pre-trial detention then?
This is some very ham-fisted propaganda. Even for The Hill.
Herr Goebbels would be proud.
“Dunn, who is Black”
Black, the most important thing.
Dunn added he’s focused on speaking his truth and the “humbling” support he receives from hundreds of others every day.
his truth. his truth is based on several lies and a stolen election.
Gosh, with all those cell phones video recording things there you would think SOMEONE would have shown on tv (24-7 with round the clock hyper-ventilating coverage) one of those evil Trump supporters making a racial comment.
>> facing down the mob’s deluge of racial hatred
GTH, Cheyanne, you pathetic Rat tool.
A six foot seven pile of lying dogsqueezins.
It would be the ANTIFA mob escorted in by the DC police, dressed in Trump garb like they were told, who acted like racists to get MAGA supporters blamed if I had to make an educated guess. I would also predict that the news cameras were positioned as part of the same plan.
I’ve learned over the years that anyone who invokes the “taxpayer” identity defense is full of BS.
The Hill, may as well be Media Matters.
deluge of racial hatred ?
This is a new one. I had heard all about people bringing guns and “killing 5 people” LOL
Them moobs don't grow themselves.
Michael Byrd, who is black, murdered Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed white woman.
The tsunami of racial hatred washed all the evidence away...
What unmitigated crap.
Grow a pair, Harry. You make the other Harry Dunn seem like a man’s man.
Also, why does it matter that this guy (in this article) is black? How is that relevant, unless it's being stated as some kind of virtue signaling? He isn't the only one who ‘deserves’ the truth.
