His name is Eugene Goodman and the entire video is available everywhere.
That seems totally bizarre, given that he could have been leading hundreds of people upstairs.

I am beginning to believe that at this point in time, 'professional policing' should be considered an example of an Oxymoron.

FWIW death via heart attack should not be included in any demonstration death toll, and the Fire extinguisher tale is at odds with witnesses, but of course official narratives have no regard for or relation to the truth. If they did they would be labeled conspiracy theories and ridiculed by all true believers.

Now there are reports that at least one Republican member of Congress had provided a guided tour of the building to some of those people who would later storm the Capitol.

Some of the insurrectionists came equipped with zip ties (used to bind hands and feet), among other offensive gear.

The Hill reports that Rep. Ayanna Pressley's office had its "panic buttons" removed - without notifying her - prior to that day.

Pressley is one of the four Democrat politicians known colloquially as 'the squad' and are a frequent target of the right-wing nutbars, with several documented threats of violence. One wonders what some of those insurrectionists had planned for her...

All very interesting.

Not sure what charges would be appropriate but I do hope any and all charges possible are thrown at the people who came with premeditated equipment like zip ties.

U.S. says Capitol rioters meant to 'capture and assassinate' officials: court filing



Federal prosecutors offered an ominous new assessment of last week's siege of the U.S. Capitol by President Donald Trump's supporters on Thursday, saying in a court filing that rioters intended "to capture and assassinate elected officials."

Prosecutors offered that view in a filing asking a judge to detain Jacob Chansley, the Arizona man and QAnon conspiracy theorist who was famously photographed wearing horns as he stood at the desk of Vice-President Mike Pence in the chamber of the U.S. Senate.

The detention memo, written by Justice Department lawyers in Arizona, goes into greater detail about the FBI's investigation into Chansley, revealing that he left a note for Pence warning that "it's only a matter of time, justice is coming."

"Strong evidence, including Chansley's own words and actions at the Capitol, supports that the intent of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States government," prosecutors wrote.

* * *

The prosecutors' assessment comes as prosecutors and federal agents have begun bringing more serious charges tied to violence at the Capitol, including revealing cases Thursday against one man, retired firefighter Robert Sanford, on charges that he hurled a fire extinguisher at the head of one police officer and another, Peter Stager, of beating a different officer with a pole bearing an American flag.

* * *

The Justice Department has brought more than 80 criminal cases in connection with the violent riots at the U.S. Capitol last week, in which Trump's supporters stormed the building, ransacked offices and, in some cases, attacked police.

Many of the people charged so far were easily tracked down by the FBI, which has more than 200 suspects, thanks in large part to videos and photos posted on social media.

Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, has said that while many of the initial charges may seem minor, he expects much more serious charges to be filed as the Justice Department continues its investigation.

(CBC)
Let's not forget President Donald Trump's message to the insurrectionists:

"We Love You. You're Special."
