In the wake of the riot that rocked the U.S. Capitol, video emerged over the weekend showing a mob of Trump supporters beating a police officer.
The video showed a Washington, D.C. Metropolitan police officer being dragged down a set of stairs outside the Capitol building while rioters beat him, some with American flags.
During the beating, several launched flag poles and other projectiles — even a crutch — at a nearby doorway.
The officer who was beaten has not been identified.

A second Capitol Police officer, Howard Liebengood, reportedly died by suicide Saturday after responding to Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol. Assigned to the Senate division, Liebengood was the son of former Senate Sergeant-At-Arms Howard S. Liebengood.
President Trump honors the Capitol Police by flying the flag at half-staff.
“As a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice of U.S. Capitol Police Officers Brian D. Sicknick & Howard Liebengood, and all Capitol Police Officers and law enforcement” ⬇️https://t.co/eSJ1u4J7rZ
