Why is it a surprise that an event carried out by a swarm of Trump supporters would result in dead Trump supporters?

As for Sicknick, it's not like the rioters checked his voting record before beating him to death. To them he was an enemy in their way.

[–]HarrySTrumanreal -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

He wasn't even beaten to death. There were about 10 stories of different things and noone knowing what happened.

It's disgusting that so many people just follow your shit without looking anything up.

[–]Mhunterjr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We know he, like dozens of other officers were assaulted by rioters, then he died. There's no debate here.

What's disgusting to is Your choice to split hairs regarding the cause of death as if it absolves those trying to violently overturn a lawful transfer of power from accountability.

So wait, are you trying to say that it wasn’t magabros and magabimbos storming the capital?

Quit smoking crack. This is not t_d. People like you are fucking cancer on society.

But trump will be back in 2 weeks I thought. Someone mentioned that in December. Sure the date keeps moving but he’s a coming. Yup. He’s coming and he’s gonna lock up Hillary and turn in all his pedophile friends. He just needs more donations is all.

I thought they had already been tried in a secret court and executed?

[–]Obeast09 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Joe Biden has actually been dead for over a year and Trump is running things from the shadows (while someone who looks, sounds, and acts like Joe Biden is in front of the public).

Only 2 people were intentionally killed, the officer who later died of a stroke after his attack and the woman shot. Many officer were attacked that day, the crowd didn't care if the officers could be MAGA. I don't get your point here, do you think they had some kind of handshake or codewords that the officers who voted for Trump would know and they wouldn't attack them even though they were doing their jobs and trying to hold the crowd back still? Some officers did stand aside when it was obvious they were outnumbered and they are being investigated, but the idea that Trump voters were vetting who they threw punches at is crazy.

[–]dizzynature123 48 points49 points  (68 children)

I don't know all that happened and who is at fault but it is possible that trump supporters killed other trump supporters. Got swept up in the excitement and woops.

[–]openmind24 31 points32 points  (2 children)

From your source, 4 were pro-trump, not 5. Where are you getting that the 5th was pro-trump?

Death by amphetamines poisoning? What does that mean? Can't imagine amphetamine overdose (thats extreeeeeemely high - 1400mg from https://www.healthline.com/health/can-you-overdose-on-adderall for just adderall).

[–]RangerDangerfield 3 points4 points  (0 children)

From your own source, a lethal dose can be as low as 1.5 mg/kg of weight.

So potentially as low as 225mg. That being said, the normal adult “starter dose” is 20mg per day, so that’s still about 10x the basic amount, but for someone who has been taking the drug for years and built up a tolerance, plus the potential for abuse, its not that unreasonable.

Factoring in other health conditions, mixing medications, and additional stimulant use would increase the chances of an overdose.

[–]OldestSheldon 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Haha Good

[–]jqbr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So I guess "black on black violence" is impossible, by your (ahem) logic.
