The Alexandria Attack
After the shooting incident by an unhinged socialist in Alexandria, Senator Rand Paul (who was present) thanked the two Capitol Police officers who were there only because the House leadership position of Rep. Scalise merited a security detail.
“Rand said, ‘I can tell you, that I think with absolute certainty, nobody would have survived without the Capitol Hill Police. They saved everybody’s life. Incredibly brave and deserve everyone’s praise, because, with this guy, who knows what his — how heavily armed he was, but nobody else had a weapon. So, he was just killing everyone — he would have. … They deserve our gratitude for saving — it would have been a massacre without them.’” (Article)
