Cops line DC street to salute Brian Sicknick killed in Capitol riot

Cops lined a Washington, DC street on Sunday to pay tribute to Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who was murdered when hordes of supporters of President Trump stormed the US Capitol building last week.

Sicknick, 42, was pepper-sprayed and fatally bludgeoned on Wednesday as rioters streamed into the Capitol in an attempt to derail Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election win.

On Sunday, a hearse carried his remains from the medical examiner’s office to a funeral home, escorted by police vehicles.

A contingent of cops representing multiple departments lined Third Avenue, offering a solemn salute as the hearse rolled past — the Capitol’s dome standing tall behind them.

Dozens of civilians too lined the street in a show of respect, applauding Sicknick and his fellow officers.

As they gathered to remember Sicknick, officers also mourned Officer Howard Liebengood, another member of the Capitol Police who died by suicide on Saturday.
