One Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, died Thursday night from injuries suffered during the riot.
Another disturbing video shows a bloodied police officer screaming for help as he’s crushed by protesters inside the Capitol building.
Still, the riot — and Sicknick's death — focused renewed attention on Capitol Police, a force of more than 2,300 officers and civilian employees that protects the Capitol, lawmakers, staff and visitors.
Capitol Police turned them down both times, according to senior defense officials and two people familiar with the matter.
