Those cops should have shot every last one of them.
I thought about that but the cops were heavily outnumbered and it may not have turned out well for the cops.
What does that have to do with anything? You protect The Capitol to the last man.
Due to the actions of the Capitol Police not one member of Congress was injured by the rioters. One rioter was killed and one Capitol Police Officer died after of natural causes after being attacked by the rioters.
You think it would have been better for the Capitol Police to have opened fire on the rioters resulting in dozens of people killed.
I wondering has any member of Congress, Democrat or Republican, opined that the Capitol Police should have opened fire on the rioters.
I wonder has any notable law enforcement professional opined that the Capitol Police should have opened fire on the rioters.
