FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) President Brian O’Hare issued the following statement on the death of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick:
“The killing of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick is a tragic reminder that law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day in the service of their fellow Americans. Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Sicknick’s family, friends, and fellow officers.
Brian Sicknick’s death and the injuries to other U.S. Capitol Police officers occurred while these law enforcement officers were doing their jobs to protect our elected officials, their staff, and our democratic process. Our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners are essential to protecting the nation, and the FBIAA supports the men and women of the U.S. Capitol Police. The FBIAA hopes that all Americans will join us in condemning this abhorrent act of violence.”
