For Some Capitol Hill Police Officers, Jan. 6 Never Ends

From Huff Post | Opinion by Stephen A. Crockett Jr.

U.S. Capitol Police Officer Byron Evans talks freely about the heroics of Jan. 6, 2021. Not his own but of the others around him. He will tell you that the officers inside the Capitol didn’t know how many people were outside.

For many officers, Jan. 6 was the beginning of a terror that still lives inside them. The trauma from that day still actively swims inside their collective psyche. Toughness doesn’t allow for a free-flowing conversation about the events of that day among officers; or, it does as long as it stays above feelings.
