Lack of Support for Capitol Police Exposes The Rise Of The MAGA COP in Westchester County

White Plains Police Officer Disrespects Capitol Police, Calling Them “Glorified Security Guards.”

I support the Capitol Police and the DC Metro Police, who fought for their lives on January 6m against racist MAGA heads and even some MAGA off-duty officers.

There has been no love from the law enforcement community for the family of the Capitol Police Officers. Officer Brian Sicknick was killed responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. His mother had to literally beg Republicans to investigate what happen that day and to find out who killed her son.

The sad thing about it is, according to Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fannon, he’s gotten no support from the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and other local and national law enforcement organizations.

Fanone told CBS News he was “tortured” on January 6, dragged alone into the crowd, tased and beaten with fists and metal objects. He said Tuesday the attack rendered him unconscious and that he suffered a mild heart attack and a brain injury.

Officer Harry Dunn of the Capitol Police – one of the four officers who testified Tuesday before the House select committee investigating the riot – told the panel a rioter had screamed at him, prompting a crowd to turn on him with shouts of “Boo! Fucking nigger!”

Capitol Police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell said he was beaten with a flagpole and soaked with chemical spray while defending the Capitol. As a result of his injuries, he said had surgery on his right foot, would need surgery on his left shoulder, and will need further rehab for possibly more than a year.

But after all this testimony, Lou Formoso, a local White Plains Police Officer took to Facebook, disrespecting the heroic efforts of the Capitol Police and DC Metro Police Officers, having the unmitigated gal to say that “Capital Police are Glorified Security Guards.”

Wait! He’s a White Plains Cop, we must ask how many times has actually been in a drawn out fight or out numbered in an altercation even close to January 6?

Do Blue Lives matter? It seems that the local and National disrespect and silence from law enforcement organizations and law enforcement officers in support of the Capital and DC Metro Police is evidence that Blue Lives Matter is just rhetoric, another cover for MAGA, the 2.5 version of White Supremacy.

These officers and organizations are quick to condemn protest about immigration and civil rights but their silence have been deafening of their majorly white comrades who illegally stormed the US Capitol Building to hang the Vice President, killed a officer and endured countless other Capitol and DC Metro Police Officers. White is always right and these cops should have known better not to speak about against it.

If these law enforcement officers and organizations don’t care about their own as they claim they do, but instead, they mock and cower in support of these officers. We have reverted to when the KKK majority control of police departments around the county. They’re nothing but hypocrites hiding their MAGA Badges and should not be patrolling our streets.

I hope this serves as a lesson to elected officials across the nation and especially in Westchester. A racial sensitivity class once a year does not cleanse the mind of being a racist, bigot, or insensitive to the community’s needs.

If you hire racists, they will remain racist. If you employ a bigot, they will stay a bigot. Some might pull back because of the social-political climate. Unfortunately, Trump’s MAGA rhetoric has emboldened racists and bigots, especially those that wear a uniform and badge. You can form police policy, but it’s harder to reform the mind, especially when they don’t want to change.

    I knew that “White Supremacists” were infiltrating our police departments and also ALL of the Military,Army, Navy etc..
    But this is hitting too close to me, as I live in Westchester county and I am ashamed by this.
    I guess there’s a**h***s all over this Country that I am having trouble with understanding what fuels you their hatred.
    Don’t they want a better world for their children, grandchildren etc..
    Their own greed takes precedence.
    Disgusted by every last one of them.
