Black Capitol Hill Cop Saved Lives Luring Trump's Terrorists Away from Lawmakers

Eugene Goodman Hailed As A Hero As He Ousts Capitol Mob Out Of Senate Chamber

Eugene Goodman was about to be overwhelmed on a stairway by the first of hundreds of protestors who'd breached the Capitol on Wednesday.

Kristin Wilson is the CNN reporter who identified the officer.

A US Capitol Police officer bounded up the stairs of the Capitol building, a growing mob of insurrectionists behind him. He was only armed with a baton. He then slightly pushes the front rioter in a bid to provoke him to follow, and drives the crowd to the right, away from the door. The rioter he shoved - the man in the QAnon shirt - lingers for a moment and looks down the Senate chamber hallway before ultimately following Goodman.

In the video below - shared to Twitter by HuffPost reporter Igor Bobic - a man police believe to be Jensen can be seen wearing a black Q-Anon t-shirt and black cap as he chases USCP Officer Eugene Goodman through the building.

Now as Capitol Police Chief, Pittman will be among the few Black women police chiefs in the nation.

Ontario issues stay-at-home order province wide to curb virus
Adalsteinn Brown, Co-Chair of the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table says the province is in a risky situation right now. The latest update from the province shows 68 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa after several days of triple-digit increases.

Goodman's actions are being hailed on social media as heroic, with New Jersey Representative Bill Pascrell tweeting he "kept murderous rioters away from the Senate chamber and saved the lives of those inside".

According to Washington D.C. station WUSA, Goodman is an Army veteran who served in Iraq. "My fellow petitioners and I are calling on leaders in the House and Senate recognize his courage and his long career of defending the United States by awarding him the highest military honor, the Medal of Honor". Doug Jensen, seen at center, was jailed on January 9 on federal charges.

Riots throughout the Capitol building occurred after Trump's "stop the steal" rally on Wednesday.

The Washington Post reports that during the encounter between Goodman and the mob, other members of the Capitol police were "frantically racing around the chamber trying to lock down more than a dozen doors leading to the chamber floor and the galleries above".
