"Did it. Do you have questions that were not answered. We still have questions as to the response time. We still have some questions around what was going on with the department of defense but but most troubling really lawrence is the is the lead up to january fifth Six and in that intelligence coming from the fbi that never made it all the way up to the chief the chief even even when he was asking for national guard. i think this is an important point lawrence. When he was asking for national guard on january sex there were only a few hundred that he would be able to access anyway so we weren't ready on so many different levels. We there should have been the optics the optics. What are the optics of what happened versus what the optics of some national guard troops guarding the capital. To make sure we have Peaceful transition of power after all the incitement that had been going on for the weeks and months. To come those optics. I think every american would choose before the optics. We ended up seeing that day. The senators asked for phone records of the former capital police. Chief and the former house sergeant at arms To try to get it straight about exactly. When the request was i made a for the national guard Do you think you will be able to attain those phone records this week. Or is that something we're going to wait for with the in response to the senate hearing. Well we're going to have the acting chief in the acting sergeant at arms this week i in front of my committee Show i'm not sure will have that information by then but that's certainly what we want. I mean this is maddening To to sit here in watch the he said she said. Cya happening all over the place on l. This is nothing new but it is frustrating that no one can take responsibility it for a exactly what happened and we need those phone records. We want the emails. We wanna know who those people are who got the email from the fbi and then decided that it wasn't that big of a deal they're just gonna pass it off to the intelligence and here again. I'm emails. you good day. How many do i get a day. How does how many does most americans who are in fashionable setting today and you're going to send an email to somebody you're not gonna pick up the phone and give somebody a call. What are we talking about here. The former capital police chief described the way. These people were equipped when they arrived at the capitol. Let's listen to that. These people specifically with equipment. What you bring in climbing gear to to a demonstration you're bringing explosives you bring in chemical spray such as what captain mendoza mendoza talked about your coming prepared. The fact that the group that attacked our west front tatra forefront front twenty minutes approximately twenty minutes before the begnaud read the ellipse ended which means they were planning on our agency not being at full strength. Be watching the other saying. Hey that events ending okay. Everybody get on post. They're going to be march our way knowing that we may not be at full strength at that time and then also the fact that we're dealing with two pipebombs that were specifically set right off the edge of our perimeter to what i suspect. Draw resources away. I think there was a significant coordination with this attack. And a carson even after that testimony Senator ron johnson entered into the record. A statement not by anyone in law enforcement but by a bystander who was describing how peaceful that this bystander thought the trump crowd was until in this person's view the capitol police provoked them into trying to take over the capped. Absolute insult to all the rank and file members of the capitol police In their families the sixty to seventy members of the capitol police in dc metro who were hurt. The the two officers who took their own lives the one who who died in in that activity. That day the insurrection. That is a complete insult it's delusional and it's an insole in their perpetuating another version of the lie that caused this in the first place at lawrence to some level in it's scary but about fifty eight percent of republicans actually believe what this man said. Because that's what turned up on on right wing news media and so there's a reason why they keep saying it. There's a reason why all these pushing back you're talking about antifa anti five. Two hundred people have been arrested in their defense is. The president told us to come down. You're right you have all these flags taken down the american flags. We're gonna kill people. We're going to go after. Nancy pelosi in the screaming and yelling and holler in the association with all these right wing groups. I mean come on. it's clear the evidence is clear open and shut case and yet the right wing is becoming even more delusional about their prospects of the future. There were no questions today about the possibility of some capital. Police officers reportedly being overly cooperative with these people when they were invading the capital there there have been reports of some possible investigations of maybe a couple of dozen capitol police officers. Who were be behaving in what seemed to be too friendly. A manner a do you know anything about that aspect of the investigation. And is that something you're going to be looking into what we're looking into it A lot of it gets back to the lack of command and control the rank and file members. And i've i've been talking now for for weeks. Every time i walk asked a couple i asked him what was going on where they were. There was no command and control structure. They didn't know what to do. You're talking about the one gentleman who put on a mega hat and he was just trying to didn't know what to do yet. No orders of what to do in marin standing he was just trying to like. I'm with you. Let's calm down. I'll put the hat on. Let's stop hurting each. He didn't know what to do. And i think there was a lot of that going on of. How do we try to defuse this without any advice or command coming from upper off. Every officer was left to their own devices in that in the put them in that position. That's really frustrating. Is that those men and women like the captain who testified were put in a position that put their lives in danger. And in like i said sixty or seventy Have injuries and a couple committed suicide being. That's what happened because of the lack of leadership. That's what we need to fix. So we need to understand the pass in order to reach the future but there were so many breakdowns on so many different levels. That it's gonna take some time for us the sift through all this and then and then put a real plan together which general honore is helping us. Do that can help us deal with this stuff. In the future cars would tim ryan. Thank you for joining us tonight. We will be watching your version of this. Hearing on thursday be the most popular legislative branch appropriations hearing along.

Also responding To racism and extremism within their ranks. And joining me now is walking SAPIEN, a reporter for Propublica. His recent story is no one took us seriously. Black cops warned about racist Capitol police officers for years. Just before the break, Joaquin SAPIEN. You were describing some of the horrific incidents and I'm wondering if you could now tell us how the department responded to allegations and complaints. Well, these lawsuits have been tied up in the courts for a really long time. The allegations in them are still unresolved and one of the main You know, folks is of frustration for the black officers were involved in taking a stand and in making their voices heard on these issues is that they felt Congress never really took them seriously. A number of them had met with the sergeant of arms. That number had met with key members of Congress. Uh, they help demonstrations outside of this building that they were sworn to protect. And so they've been doing the best they could draw attention to The racism that they endured day in and day out for many years and they're feeling is that it had been ignored that it was it was falling on deaf ears and one of the issues that many of them raised us. And our interviews was that They felt as though black officers were too often passed over for promotions and were unable to secure positions and leadership. And so some of the black officers that we talked to drew a direct line between The lack of officers in leadership and the response to the protests. You know they're feeling was that if there were more black officers at the higher ranks of the Capitol Police Department that things may have unfolded a little bit differently that the threat from some of the white supremacist groups who led the assault on the Capitol May have been taken more seriously. Had there been more diversity in in those higher ranks. Well, let me also ask our listeners how they're reacting to what they're seeing and what they see as direct lines between what happened. On January 6th and racism in the force. Lack of promotion is you talk about you couldn't join us by calling 8667336786 again. 8667336786. You can also reach us on Twitter or Facebook at KQED Forum or email. Your reactions, your thoughts your questions to forum. At KQED dot or g'kar looking something? Can you just give us a snapshot of how oversight works for the Capitol Police force? Because, of course, this different from the D C. Police Force. Congress, As you said, is somebody that is an entity that the officers who were fined the complaints point to as not doing enough? What kind of oversight is there? So there's a couple of congressional oversight committees that that share the duty of sort of regulating that office. And that's the oversight committee. Aziz well as interim administration committee, and so there have been from time to time. I'm trying to time hearings in which the chiefs of the Capitol Police Department have been brought in to answer questions about security lapses. And things of that nature on there's also an inspector general within the Capitol Police Department and there is a relatively new disciplinary body that had been created, um by Chief Stein and in 2012. All right. But like the rest of Congress the it's not an entity that is subject to the Freedom of Information Act. And so it's really difficult to actually as a member of the public. Get any real insight into you know what happens when The security Lasses go down. One of the things that we reported on was that a number of Capitol police officers had left their guns in the bathroom in the years, 2015 and 2019, and it's really unclear whether you know the extent to which those officers Disciplined. Um you know, it looks like there were some discipline. We don't know the extent of it. And, you know, part of the reason for that is because the disciplinary records just aren't available to the public. And you know a lot of police entities. And you may have touched on this. But in terms of civilian oversight bodies does anything like that exists. Besides, you know, Congress has oversight. No, does not. And I'm glad you brought that up. There are civilian oversight bodies for most Local law enforcement agencies here in the you know, in New York, we have the civilian Complaint Review board. They're similar entities where members of the public can make complaints. About a police department and have them investigated a lot of those lot of the time. Those investigations are unsatisfying for the complainants, but at least they do exist. There is nothing of the kind for the Capitol Police Department. But there have been allegations that the CPD has been pretty aggressive and Enforcing, you know, possession of marijuana laws and things like that, among people who are just near the capital. There's been a lot of people who are frustrated by, you know the way they treat the homeless center in that area. And so there's certainly been a number of occasions where people wanted to complain about the CPD that live around the capital. But having had a a form to do that Well, let me go to collar Gwynn in San Francisco. Hi, Quinn. Hi. I think that they should have paid attention to the chatter that was going on the FBI and the CIA heard And I know that those two groups FBI and CIA group probably in infiltrated those groups like they did. The Black Panthers stood in the sixties, the American Nazi Party and the KKK, So I know those groups have been infiltrated. And they were just willing to take a risk. Also, there was a pandemic played a role in it because you know, during this time of year, there's lots of schools are tourists going there? And it would have been really a mess. If the kids in schools and other tourists have gotten met mixed up in that, and my last comment is I think they're, um, playing with danger. They should just have a virtual inauguration. It wouldn't kill anybody. And it would, um, you know you could have your marching band from Mississippi or Alaska. Participated, and everybody can watch it on TV. I just think that this is too dangerous to have inauguration right now, then, Thanks for sharing those thoughts, Wendy writes. The only people I know in law enforcement are trump supporters. Even now, I have no idea if they are, if they are or could be insurrectionist, But how do we go about Purging pro insurrectionists or suspending them from the forces. I mean, this is a question walking SAPIEN. That is really something that as we heard Missy Ryan, describing earlier local police as well as military the department of Defense is trying to deal with right now. I mean, do you feel like there is attention being paid to that and that there are Strategies that that are effective that people are aware of in using Yeah..
