The news is out: [The Department of Justice charged a retired firefighter on Wednesday, accusing him of throwing a fire extinguisher at police officers during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Robert Sanford of Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, faces four federal charges, including assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers while engaged in the performance of official duties and disorderly or disruptive conduct on Capitol grounds.
Video published by Storyful from the Capitol steps shows a man heaving a fire extinguisher from an elevated position toward a line of officers who were trying to hold back a mob of rioters.]
Nothing has changed; firefighters have been at the wrong side of history since the civil rights marches. They are known for peeling the skin off negroes with their water cannons.
