Retired NYPD Officer Charged for Beating D.C. Cop with Flagpole During Capitol Riots [VIDEO]

A former U.S. Marine and retired New York City cop is accused of attacking a Washington, D.C., police officer during the deadly Capitol riot on Jan. 6.

Per PEOPLE, Thomas Webster was allegedly captured on police bodycam carrying a large metal flagpole with a U.S. Marine Corps flag and yelling, “You f—— piece of sh–. You f—— mother——-, man.”

He then used the flagpole to attack a  D.C. police officer. Webster also pinned him to the ground and punched him for about 10 seconds, according to the complaint states. In another video posted to Twitter, he is allegedly seen trying to remove the officer’s face shield and gas mask. 

Thousands stormed the U.S. Capitol last month as part of a “Stop the Steal” rally. A mob of Trump supporters was filmed forcefully entering the Capitol and walking past armed Capitol police with zero resistance. Former President Trump shared a video message to his supporters shortly after the building was seized.

“I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us,” Trump said in the video. “But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt … We will never give up. We will never concede. It will never happen. You don’t concede when there’s death involved. Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore.” 

Trump also defended the violent mob of mostly white conservatives. “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!” he said in a tweet that was later deleted by Twitter. The video was also removed from the platform

Webster faces six charges, including assaulting an officer with a dangerous weapon. His lawyer, James Monroe, said during a virtual hearing on Tuesday that his client acted in self-defense after the officer punched him. Federal prosecutor Benjamin A. Gianforti said there’s no evidence showing the officer punching Webster before the assault. 

“He went there as an American citizen to protest, an event that was urged on by our former president — to protest an issue that Tom felt very strongly about,” Monroe said during the hearing. “That’s protecting the Constitution.”

Webster is currently jailed and being held without bail, according to the report.

This is what i do not understand, niggers in the black community are so retarded, and Biden said it best when he was running for president in 2020,  he said to the Hispanics Tv and newspaper, black people are close minded they are not diverse like Hispanics, they dont make bright decisions in politics. Now dont act like yall dont know or did not hear him, google the interview or search google.

You were complaining about Trump who as a racist yet you have a whole police department "NYPD"  including its union who publicly endorsed Trump and on social media posting how they supported him, so let me guess since you feel people like me dont have the same rights as you do to support what ever candidate i please, you would come for my head for supporting Trump, but you are not strong enough to boycott the police department who dedicated their career to destroy your life and community, you didnt even stand up to them as tax payers instead you are sitting down begging to work with them, what type of democracy do you practice? niggers are going to be niggers, and being a n***** is the biggest cursed to the black race, you cant feel sorry for them. All those people you saw in DC that day were the same people you do business with including the police that are killing you, niggers can be part of destroying people's lively hood like my pillow ceo for speaking his opinion, but they will look away and ignore the police department who gets pay from their tax money, so sad.
