Six Capitol police officers face discipline over Jan 6 riot

An internal investigation found that six Capitol police officers broke rules during the sacking of the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6 by a mob of Trump supporters. The officers did not break the law, investigators found, but should be disciplined.

Disciplinary action was recommended in six cases, including for conduct unbecoming, failure to comply with directives, improper remarks and improper dissemination of information, the Capitol Police said.

The cases stemmed partly from complaints from people who were at the Capitol on Jan. 6. The results will be turned over to the U.S. Department of Justice.

It was not an even-sided fight, all the same: more than 600 of those who stormed and ransacked the building have been charged with crimes.
