Two more DC police officers who responded to the US Capitol insurrection have died by suicide, authorities announced on Monday, bringing the total to four officers who have taken their own lives in the aftermath of the January 6 riot.

“Officer Gunther Hashida, assigned to the Emergency Response Team within the Special Operations Division, was found deceased in his residence on Thursday, July 29,” Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson Kristen Metzger told CNN in a statement.

“We are grieving as a Department and our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Hashida’s family and friends,” Metzger said.

Metropolitan Police Officer Kyle DeFreytag was found dead on July 10, according to department public information officer Sean Hickman.

Hashida had joined the Metropolitan Police Department in 2003 and DeFreytag had been with the department since November 2016.

The deaths mark four known suicides by officers who responded to the Capitol during the attack, and three known suicides by a DC officer specifically

So where are all the cop supporting Republicans these days? The police officers who fought and were traumatized in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot only find themselves being mocked and questioned by many (most?) on the right who are refusing to take responsibility for the Trump inspired insurrection.

Now four police officers who were involved in the riot that day have committed suicide and all we hear are the sounds of silence from the conservative right wingers on these boards who worry about defunding the cops and BLM. When Trump white supporters are the rioters, though, and police die as a result these hypocrites have nothing to say in support of the officers involved.
