Protecting Our Nation’s Capitol

(DC) – There were many police officers, on January 6, who stepped up and put their lives in jeopardy to protect our nation’s capitol. The insurrection that attempted to overthrow the duly elected government is still being investigated and prosecuted. The criminals are slowly being rounded up and jailed. Many police officers who fought to protect our Congress people are now suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to the events of that day.

But one officer was placed in a situation where he had to make a fatal decision, the decision to stop the invasion of the room where Congress members were being protected. Lt. Michael Byrd shot and killed a rioter who was attempting to breach the security of the room despite calls for her to stop. Because of his heroic actions, he has been facing extreme backlash and death threats from the same segment of our society that was willing to attack our nation’s capitol.

Lt. Byrd is suffering financial hardships due to having to provide security to protect his life. His friends have set up a Go Fund Me page to help this brave man. The total requested was a modest number. Please do not be put off by that amount being exceeded. Much more than that is actually needed to protect Lt. Byrd from those who wish him harm. Please consider donating. Thank you.
