Hodges' testimony was the most damning, I feel.
It seems to me that at 0:35, the protester pulling Hodge's gas mask off of his face ... did so ... to help Hodge's breathe more easily. If he was attempting to hurt Hodge's he easily could have, but from what we could see the protester did not touch Hodge's after he removed the mask.
At 1:18, it appears that the protester in the red knit hat is trying to get help for Hodges; she asked him at 1:28, "Are you OK"? Hodges responds, "Yay."
At 1:47 a protester (in a brown jacket) taps a police officer on the shoulder and starts pointing, and making other hand gestures, at 1:49 the police officer nods to the protester; what was that communication about? I'd like to know.
The man at 0:35 does not look to be helping, his actions look deliberately harming, and quite vicious. Of course, a Trump flag is always in the way at crucial moments.
1:18 - yes. The woman actually cared about him. Glad to see it.
No idea what the 'communication' was about. I think both police and rioters were getting crushed in the centre. Could have been about that.
This is more new footage.
Oh, and I hope you stick around. I would never allow anyone to speak to you the way they do in the Opinion Forum.
Where is the video, of the woman in the pink shirt using the "N" word towards Dunn?
I don't know. I hate the idea of putting the N word into Google.
I googled "officer dunn capitol police woman in pink shirt"
I don't see any footage of it, or images of her.
There is an image of officer Dunn in a pink shirt, however.
So, you were cursing that Trump flag too!! LOL
The protester, had to pull hard to get the gas mask off of Hodges, and Hodges certainly could breath more easily without the mask on. If the protester meant to be vicious, and to hurt Hodges ... he could have punched him in the face, or beat him in the head, after he removed the mask. I don't recall Hodges saying that the protester who removed his mask, did anything other than remove his mask.
Further, the police officers behind Hodges should have stepped back so that Hodges could have backed out of the doorway. This may have been what the protester in the brown jacket was attempting to do; get the officers to move backwards for Hodge's sake? I don't know what else the protester was trying to accomplish with all of the hand gestures, in his communicating with the police officer who he had tapped to get his attention. The protester, and the officer should be asked about this.
It seems that the police officers are to blame, because there were no protesters standing in front of Hodges preventing him from moving forward ... It's that Hodge's was not able to move forward on his own volition. And for a protestor to attempt to pull Hodges forward, out of the doorway, would have been futile and hurt Hodges in the process, due to the way that he was wedged into the doorway.
I think the protestor in the red knit hat, would have pulled Hodges out of the doorway ... in a heartbeat ... if she could have.
