Slain Officer Sicknick Lies in State in the US Capitol

The scene was a somber one.

The nation mourns today.

On January 6th, America witnessed an event unique in her long and turbulent history:  American conservative overwhelming law enforcement authorities and storming the US Capitol, shouting that they wished to hang the Vice President from the neck until he died.

On that fateful days, several people lost their lives, including Brian Sicknick; a law enforcement professional working for the Capitol Police. 

Brian Sicknick, the U.S. Capitol Police officer who was fatally injured during the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol complex, has been given the rare distinction of lying in honor in the building’s Rotunda.

President Biden and Jill Biden briefly joined family members and colleagues from the Capitol Police in a period of visitation on Tuesday night.

Sicknick’s remains arrived in the evening in a motorcade along with his family. The urn containing his cremated remains was slowly walked up the steps and directly into the Rotunda.

Wednesday, members of Congress will pay their respects beginning at 7 a.m., followed by a tribute at 10:30 a.m. with remarks from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher during the siege.  After he had returned back to his precinct, he collapsed and died a short time later.
