Enter The hero’s-US Capitol Police

Republican and staff members of the US Congress were having an early morning softball practice in preparation for the Dems vs. Repubs annual softball game.  A long standing tradition with the proceeds going to local charities.  Good cause and buy in from both parties.  No jawboning about political matters.

Accompanying the congressmen were two US Capitol Police Special Agents as part of the majority whip’s security detail.

Suddenly, a man appeared with an AR-15 and began firing at the players and anybody near the field.  A weak minded troll who wanted to kill as many Republicans as he could.  If not for the brave and decisive action of the officers he may have accomplish a great deal of death and maiming.

The officers sprang into action.  Drawing their weapons and immediately engaging the threat.  Soon the shooting stopped.  The gunman lay dead.  Congressman Steve Scalise R-LA lay critically wounded.  Several others, including the two officers were wounded.

Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to S/A David Bailey and S/A Crystal Griner for their capitol cops2gallant and heroic action on this day.  They conducted themselves in a manner consistent with the motto of the capitol Police.  “A tradition of Service and protection.”

On behalf of a grateful nation we thank you for your dedication and professionalism.  their action reflect great credit on themselves and the US Capitol Police.

May god bless those that “Serve and Protect.”
