According to the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, the New York Times did not add the update about the fire extinguisher until sometime on Friday.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/new-york-times-capitol-police-officer-brian-sicknick-fire-extinguisher

The New York Times quietly updated a month-old report about the siege of Congress which perpetuated the idea that U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick might have died after being struck by a fire extinguisher.

Now affixed to the top of the report, headlined: Capitol Police Officer Dies From Injuries in Pro-Trump Rampage, is an update note. "New information has emerged regarding the death of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick that questions the initial cause of his death provided by officials close to the Capitol Police," the missive states in italic letters.

Capitol Police announced that Sicknick, a 42-year-old who joined the agency in 2008, died at around 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 7, one day after rioters sieged the U.S. Capitol as lawmakers counted electoral votes to affirm President Biden's victory.

"Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters. He returned to his division office and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," the Capitol Police said in a statement. Capitol Police said Sicknick's death would be investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch, the USCP, and federal partners. Charges have yet to be filed in the case.
>>
The next day, the New York Times reported Sicknick "was struck by a fire extinguisher," citing two law enforcement officials, prompting other news outlets to echo this reporting. The following week, a retired Pennsylvania fireman, Robert Sanford, 55, was arrested and charged with assaulting law enforcement. Sanford was caught on video and accused of throwing a fire extinguisher at police, but he was not suspected in the death of Sicknick.

In recent days, CNN reported that investigators have determined that initial reports about Sicknick being hit with a fire extinguisher are not true and that medical examiners "did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma" as they "struggle to build a murder case" in the officer's death. One leading theory is that Sicknick was sprayed by an irritant such as bear spray and had a fatal reaction. It is not publicly known if Sicknick had a pre-existing condition which could have contributed to his death. Two days after the Capitol riot, ABC News cited "sources familiar with the matter" to report that "authorities believe Sicknick's death was driven by a medical condition."


The way the report appeared as of Sunday evening said the fire extinguisher theory was in dispute: "Law enforcement officials initially said Mr. Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher, but weeks later, police sources and investigators were at odds over whether he was hit. Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official."
>>
>>>/pol/
>>
This was preceded by a separate New York Times report on Thursday, which added: "Investigators have found little evidence to back up the attack with the fire extinguisher as the cause of death, the official said. Instead, they increasingly suspect that a factor was Officer Sicknick being sprayed in the face by some sort of irritant, like mace or bear spray, the law enforcement official said." That report also states this development "has complicated efforts to arrest suspects in Officer Sicknick’s death, as both the police and rioters used spray in the siege. It is difficult to prove who sprayed irritant on Officer Sicknick."

The Washington Examiner reached out to the New York Times for comment.

Sicknick's eldest brother, Ken Sicknick, told ProPublica last month that Brian Sicknick had texted the family hours after the siege to say he was pepper-sprayed but doing Okay. “He texted me last night and said, ‘I got pepper-sprayed twice,’ and he was in good shape,” Ken Sicknick recounted. “Apparently he collapsed in the Capitol and they resuscitated him using CPR.” He went on to blame the "political climate" for getting his brother killed.

"Many details regarding Wednesday's events and the direct causes of Brian's injuries remain unknown, and our family asks the public and the press to respect our wishes in not making Brian's passing a political issue," Ken Sicknick told Fox News a couple days after his brother's death.

Brian Sicknick received the rare tribute of lying in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, where his casket was visited by President Biden, and Sicknick's cremated remains were sent to Arlington National Cemetery to be laid to rest.

Several others died amid the chaos of the Capitol riot. Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran and Trump supporter, was shot and killed by a Capitol Police officer while she attempted to climb through a window into the Speaker's Lobby. Three others died from “medical emergencies," according to officials. And two other officers who responded to the siege, one from Capitol Police and another from MPD, died by suicide, local police said.

A federal homicide investigation was quickly opened into Sicknick's death in early January, and acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin, the federal prosecutor leading the Capitol riots investigation, said “specialized teams” were still investigating the deaths of Sicknick and Babbitt during a Jan. 26 press conference.

“We can't comment on those grand jury investigations at this point, but we're hopeful we're going to be able to have results soon in those cases," Sherwin said. The results of those inquiries have not yet been made public, almost three weeks later. Investigators have also not yet publicly identified a suspect behind who planted pipe bombs outside the RNC and DNC the night before the Capitol riot.
Former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said the day after Sicknick's death that the officer "succumbed last night to the injuries he suffered defending the U.S. Capitol against the violent mob who stormed it." He added that the Justice Department "will spare no resources in investigating and holding accountable those responsible.”

The House impeached former President Donald Trump last month on a charge of inciting insurrection in connection to the Capitol riot. He was acquitted by the Senate on Saturday, but before that, the National Review's Andrew McCarthy raised concerns about how the House impeachment managers mentioned Sicknick as they made their case against Trump.
>>
In fact, a pretrial memo cited the New York Times's reporting, saying, "The insurrectionists killed a Capitol Police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher."

"Clearly, if Officer Sicknick died because of something the rioters did, that is a serious matter. If that happened, former President Trump should be accountable, because he was instrumental in arranging the January 6 rally that turned violent, because he stirred up his supporters with provocative rhetoric, and because — as commander in chief of the armed forces — he failed to take action to repel the siege on the Capitol," McCarthy, a former assistant U.S. attorney, wrote in a column published on Thursday.
"But if it did not happen the way the House Democratic impeachment manners have represented that it happened, we should be told that — and be told why such an inflammatory allegation was made in the impeachment article and repeated in the pretrial memo," he added.

The article of impeachment itself alleged that the mob that was "incited" by Trump "unlawfully breached and vandalized the Capitol, injured and killed law enforcement personnel, menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President, and Congressional personnel, and engaged in other violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday she was introducing legislation to pay tribute to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement personnel who protected the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 with the Congressional Gold Medal, including Sicknick. Biden said that "it was nearly two weeks ago that Jill and I paid our respects to Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who laid in honor in the Rotunda after losing his life protecting the Capitol from a riotous, violent mob" in a statement issued after the Senate acquitted Trump.

Then they officially retracted it and said it wasn't bullshit, after several publishers started publishing that it was bullshit. They actually doubled down on it

I really can't make heads or tails out of this spewage. No timeline is given, just histrionics about things that were reported and not reported by various outlets that were never confirmed to begin with. Everyone was reporting that "it was reported that." It's been known since the 06 Jan that the fire extinguisher thing was unconfirmed. The NYT among other outlets) keep updating their stories as they got new reports from different sources.

I have no idea what point this article is making other than "pure fucking chaos was taking place and nobody knew for certain what happened." And very nearly every report noted that it 'was reported' or 'rumored' with no confirmation.

Gaslighting and propaganda.

The NYT's source was an "anonymous person close to the Police", it was not an official source. There's still no official statement confirming what his cause of death was, just one confirming it was not via fire extinguisher, contrary to what the NYT falsely reported. They falsely reported this on purpose, in order to disseminate political propaganda against political dissidents. There's no magic wand, no combination of left-cult buzzwords you can string together to make this go away.

Why is it that when one of your sacred MSM cows gets caught lying, again, you're immediate reaction everytime is to attack the people exposing their lies? Are they paying you? Or do you honestly do it for free?

This is how conservatives operate. They ask you to be unreasonably specific either to sea lion or to nitpick on a minute detail to say you're who argument is discredited.

At least MSM issues corrections when called out whereas rightwing media never does (see the reporting of Trump's 30,000+ lies as facts and truth for 4 years) unless they get their bloated asses sued.

The insurrectionists showed up with cases of bear spray and started using it indiscriminately. There was video that they broadcast on social media while bragging about it.

It's illegal to use bear spray on humans. There are reasons why, especially including adverse health effects, such as death.

I did some searching it's not illegal to have or use for self defense but using it to assault someone is assault obviously. It's actually less concentrated than normal pepper spray as it's purpose is deterrence not incapacitation.

How does this change the fact he was killed by a rioter?

Do you think the security video shows Pence banging him over the head with a fire extinguisher or some shit?

The murder weapon is not material to the story, at best, you'll find it was something a rioter brought with them, rather than something picked up at the scene, promoting Murder 2 to Murder 1.
>>
>>792205
He likely died from an allergic reaction to all the pepper spray in the air, maybe, it's really still not totally clear. That spray could have come from one of his colleagues. The fact is nobody knows, and it's a bad idea to lay blame of murder on a group without strong evidence. There is a reason why the court system requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
>>
>>792205
>How does this change the fact he was killed by a rioter
Was he?

Probably suicide by gunshot to back of head after democrats realized he wasn't dead in Thursday, after they already pushed out their propoganda claiming he was not only dead but he was murdered with a fire extinguisher
>>
>>792205
>How does this change the fact he was killed by a rioter?
Because he wasn't killed by a rioter. The fire extinguisher story was fake, his cause of death happened a week later.

My guess is, like most cops, he was probably a fatbody and had heart issues from years of stuffing donuts in his face.
>>
>>792205
>Do you think the security video shows Pence banging him over the head with a fire extinguisher or some shit?
There's no security footage of anyone hitting anyone over the head with a fire extinguisher, or anything else. There's no footage of this cop being assaulting.
If there was, we would have seen it.

Everyone in that building had a camera rolling, start to finish. How is it they managed to catch security shooting a rioter but somehow managed to miss someone beating a cop to death with a fire extinguisher? Doesn't follow, does it?

In sure that Trump caused it to be this way with his infinity gauntlet he uses for supporting the fine white supremacists from Charlottesville that he financially supports using a small loan from his father if $10 trillions, which he hid in his tax returns

yes. magically, in the chaos everyone should have been able to efficiently record everything from every angle
but also coincidentally they spent most of that time pointing the camera at themselves to deliver some sorta speech to their "online crowd"

Thats literally what happened you faggot. How many videos and selfies were posted that day? Hundreds, from hundreds of angles. Every notable event mentioned, that happened in that building during the incident, was on camera publicly in some form or another.

Except, of course, the debunked fire extinguisher incident.

I'm pretty certain that Trump used a small loan of $1trillion from his father to hide the recording of that incident.

Definately not the new York times. It took them around a month to retract their lie about the fire extinguisher.
Just enough time for trump's second trial to end.

But yeah, they knew long before that's not how he died.
I mean shit, they were reporting he was dead 48 hours or so before he died. NPR even mentions this
>>
>>792828
I'm seeing a mess of conflicting reports saying everything from bear spray to a stroke to physical trauma. Hell, even the report of the family being told of a stroke doesn't make a colossal amount of sense considering the death is still an open investigation, so it's entirely possible they weren't told the real cause.
>>
>>792831
I agree with most of this.
Only, the direct cause of death is known, don't fool yourself.
He's dead.
He died in a hospital.
Doctors know why he did and it was due to suicide by gunshot to back of head when the news realized he wasn't dead although his death had already been reported
It's known.
They had no problem reporting on the fire extinguisher.
We just aren't being told now that the trials over, his death doesn't matter anymore.
And the lie is embarrassing, better brushed under the rug

His name was Brian Sicknick

It seems the mask is just off now. That they'll just edit and change information to be outright lies and propaganda, because they know their silly-putty brained cultists will follow it to the grave. It's little more than a state-run mouthpiece, at this point.

It's also interesting to note that the so-called "Right wing news site" Fox News literally isn't reporting on this, either. Because even if Fox is the away team and New York Times is the Home team, they're still playing a game with one another, and they want to keep it going.

Man throws extinguisher + cpd officer dies = a lie about a cpd officer being bashed in the head with a fire extinguisher

It would make sense that the officer really was hit with an extinguisher.....

Have you looked up the case of Robert Sanford, the man being charged for hitting the cop with a fire extinguisher, and the video of him doing it?

This is a case of an honest mistake trying to be spun into propaganda, thinking it somehow changes the only pertinent fact:

A protester killed a cop in the capital building.

This probability wave has long since collapsed. End of line.

But this board seems to full of people that don't understand what grand heroes and villains these ~500 people were. Why they deserve respect for showing the whole nation a fundamental truth:
We have no reason to fear this nation, we could wipe it out in a heartbeat.
It has no reason to fear us, because we never have.

So why does everyone in this whole darn nation, still fear each other?

Yes it was, because the officer didn't allegedly die until a week later. Meaning they were saying he died while he was still alive.

There's zero evidence this happened other than an "anonymous source close to the police department". All the cameras in that building that day, taking pictures/video of everything that happened, yet somehow no one got footage of that or even saw it happen. Weird.

Lmao. So not only did this not injure anybody, the reports of this happening inside the capitol and of the man "viciously beating the officer" with the extinguisher were also a complete lie. Excellent.

Do you think the scene of the crime is the hospital?

This whole threads effort is to cover up a crime. The same one the state perpetrated against the protestors (she didn't die there either). Yet, I've not seen the left attempting to deny that happened.

Everyone has a narrative they're trying to steer. The fact that an agenda exists and people are trying to push it is not an argument against its validity. You actually have to engage with the arguments and say why the agenda is either right or wrong. Pointing at an agenda and saying "HEY, LOOK EVERYONE AN AGENDA EXISTS" is not an argument. Fuck.

Yes, totally nothing to do with the blow to the back of the head he took from a fucking fire extinguisher that put him in the hospital to begin with.

How, exactly, do you think head trauma normally kills you? Internal bleeding in the brain - in other words, a fucking stroke. Same thing the protestor that got shot in the head died of.

Jesus Christ people... I just don't know how many times I can listen to people re-writing reality as they complain about media re-writing reality.

>>795252
>blow to the back of the head he took from a fucking fire extinguisher
According to https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/new-york-times-capitol-police-officer-brian-sicknick-fire-extinguisher
>"Law enforcement officials initially said Mr. Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher, but weeks later, police sources and investigators were at odds over whether he was hit. Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official."
>"authorities believe Sicknick's death was driven by a medical condition."

>Internal bleeding in the brain
There was no blunt force trauma - i.e. no bleeding in his brain. He had an thromboembolic/ischemic stroke, not a hemorrhagic stroke.

>I just don't know how many times I can listen to people re-writing reality as they complain about media re-writing reality
You're the one who is wrong about the facts. Nothing supports your case and the evidence available disproves it.
>>
>>795268
>He had an thromboembolic/ischemic stroke, not a hemorrhagic stroke
Since the Medical Examiner's report has not been released, that's just as much speculation as the fire extinguisher theory.
>>
>>795273
The blood clot was reported by journalists interviewing the officer's brother and father who were both repeating what the hospital had told them. Its not speculation, its fact.
>>
>>795268
>authorities believe Sicknick's death was driven by a medical condition
So this is one of those "the protestors are only responsible for his death because he wasn't physically able to perform his duties properly" sorta thing?

So you get to make up shit about Sicknick being killed by a protestor with a fire extinguisher, but I'm not allowed to cite the officer's family members that heard from a hospital doctor that it was a blood clot nor can I cite a source that claims the medical examiner found no evidence of blunt force trauma? Those aren't allowed, but your make believe is? And you accuse everyone else of rewriting reality? You remind me of the "Source? Source? Source?" copypsata.
>>
>>795293
I'm not sure I follow. The cops are angling for the stroke being a reaction to pepper spray, but they haven't provided have any evidence so it sounds like they're spitballing. Anything I've found about strokes caused by pepper spray make it sound like its an immediate reaction caused by inhalation and spiking blood pressure, not something that takes a day, but the officer was resuscitated by CPR at the Capitol, so maybe he did have an immediate reaction. I don't know if a blood clot can be caused by elevated blood pressure. Of course, no one knows whose pepper spray it would be since both the protestors and cops were using it.

There are many types of stroke
I've heard the term blood clot thrown around
This would be an ischemic stroke. Being sprayed by pepper spray would not cause the blood clot but if it were already in a position ready to cause stroke it may just be the tipping point

Now the sharp rise in blood pressure itself would be more of a hemorrhagic stroke. these are strokes due to high blood pressure that rupture a blood vessel in the brain.

We will have to wait for the report though.

Regardless, the event that took place on January 6th likely contributed to his death but without being physically attacked by a person I'm not sure you could establish causality

A fire fighter was caught on video tossing a fire extinguisher towards some capitol police.
None of them were sicknick. All were cleared of any injury.

A well-funded cabal got this video and heard an officer was in a hospital.
They published that he died. He didn't (yet). They claimed cause of death was this fire extinguisher (it wasn't)
NPR and a few other outlets interviewed cpd who claimed this was false. NYT knew this and chose not to update their story.
A few days later sicknick died
The NYT (and most other outlets) still chose not to correct the story
Most outlets ramp up the death of sicknick before and during the second trial.
After the trial is over and the smoke clears, they quietly correct their stories.

Nice! It's like a well funded cabal is attempting to control the flow of information!

Yeah I guess your right.
Catering to megacorps is a pretty popular policy that will get you a lot of fucking moneyz, apparently to the tune of 1.6 billion in this case

Is this how you cope? The hospital said stroke, the family said stroke, the medical examiner said no blunt force trauma. Quit being a conspiracy theorist.

>>796665
He died one day later, not a few days later. You're right about everything else.

>all I've got is hearsay conjecture
Where's the Medical Examiner report? Yeah, that's what I thought. Shut your pie hole.

Close enough.
Point being I find this highly unlike to have been an earnest mistake with a earnest correction

Well, seeing as how we're apparently bringing earmarks back, you should be seething about now.

James Madison always said you should always aim to inspire the best in people, but never depend on it. Enlightened self interest from politicians is generally the best you can hope for.

At the same time, while I support gridlock in my voting habits, it's gotten to the point where red and blue are so much alike, they have to make up shit to serve as each others adversaries, and have put themselves both in fantasy worlds as a result. So I get it, ya need additional motivators to break from party lines. I would hope they'd regulate the shit out of them, make every earmark request public and consolidated on a government website, make every earmark pass the ethics or W&M committee, make sure cash only went to non-profits in the end, but alas, none of that is going to happen.

I'd much rather they just open up the legislative amendment process to the minority party.

Yeah man. Porky's a fucking asshole and he's coming back big time he never left, it's just more acceptable now that we know he's around because he created a tale of fascism and then defeated it for us

Funny man in tv says different

>>797254
That, coupled with the social media end of it, would be the fantasy world.

Not everything they say is a lie, of course. It's much easier to create a false world by shedding a particular light on particular truths. The people who help fund the creation of those false worlds, do so because that's how they look upon the world they are in, so from their perspective, they are being fundamentally honest. Which is the most dangerous and seductive kind of lie that inevitably traps more and more people, in that same dark and twisted hell and blind allegiance and rage towards the donkeys and elephants promising to save them from the world they created.

Well, if he does leave, you'll know it, as suddenly the dollar with be worthless. Problem with blaming porky for everything is, the battleship on the ocean of oblivion we all live in, is made of bacon.

His mask changes as often as any other, even if he's only elected by meritocracy of survival against his fellow's efforts, and his term limit is set by that and biology.

However, as he's thus made more or less invulnerable, he is a good target for every side to blame the other for - just, please don't put him directly in charge again in an effort to defeat him. Porky's job isn't to command, his place is only to grease the gears to maximize the engine's output, giving the various crews their motivation - including the gunners who clear those populated icebergs and other ships out of the way.

Dollar already is becoming worthless with the constant 'brrrr' noise the us money printer has been making since covid

The US is unique in the world, in that it can do that near forever with little in the way of the usual consequences, so long as it isn't in the interest of its western allies to break its global reserve status, and those who would end it don't outmaneuver them, or cause them to sabotage said alliances from within. Those with the most power to do so, are still too interdependent on that same system to end it.

Though the fact that no one at the Fed seems to do their own shopping, does create a huge disconnect between the macroeconomic and the microeconomic, and the resulting hate, as we can plainly see, does add up.

>>797868
I'm actually fairly surprised it's lasted as long as it has, but it's been inflating quick as fuck since covid

Hey, what's up lightning rod thread? I passed on this shit early since it looked like trash, somebody save me the 45 minutes of reading and give me a fucking summary
>>
>>798564
Basically a new you’re times article about the work people did to insure a legit election.

Conservatives jumping on a sentence in it and twisting it around to fit their narrative of election fraud, even though the entire article talks about the efforts to stop election fraud.

Just another attempt at misinformation to gas light ignorant conservatives into a victim frenzy.

We don't draw on our currency, so much as we do all the world's when we do that. They can break that contract with us, but then they lose the western world's enforcer, while we go down in flames, with the most powerful military in the world and no money to pay for it, and the only option to save any scraps of the crashing world for ourselves, being to use it.

Mutual dependency, it's a bitch, but it keeps the peace.

Any path that aims to destabilize the US, without a similarly massive fiscal and military alliance already in place, is basically a path to the end of civilization, at this point. Yet folks in the US keep hopping on the joker train, as if a global economic collapse followed by world war 3 would somehow make their lives better. All out of the jealousy of "porkey", most of which don't have more than 30 years to live, not realizing what they are really demanding, is the death of the ever-evolving lynchpin of the world.

And you know your civilization is in trouble, when we don't often admit that to ourselves, and even those of us that do, are willing to play that game of chicken for more control, and so many millions of people, are so desperate, that they eagerly hop on that train to mutual destruction, cheering the whole way.

And in the end? No one to blame for it, but ourselves.

It's a nyt article about a bunch of CEOs and megacorps who banded together controlled what people say on tv and lobbyed state governments across the US to change voting law because they didn't want Trump to win again

Yeah, and every other goddamn day since I'm not some fuckhead sitting looking at a Hungarian meat grinding post-it like it's gonna make any difference to the rest of the world.
Good lord, sometimes I really wonder what kind of reach people think this site has. No, really. It's fucking 4chan, permanent joke-haven for pariahs. Ffffuck you

I wasn't asking about the article you pair of goddamn dunces. I was asking about the long stream of shitposts up above this one, since God himself couldn't pay me in pussy to put my eyes on more than one or two

To get all that misdirected rage into a soundbite for you? "Yours is evil, I want mine!"

The usual roundabout on this board, as between all newlyweds, punctuated with the occasional apocalyptic vision, "We all made this way!", and "Fuck you in particular!" calls for violence, as children are wrecked on the playground.

This is your memory speaking, I cannot tell you more than you already know.

Fuck of retard you shit up this board more than anyone else

No?
Then fuck off

Last I read he died from and adverse reaction to non lethal irritants but it's odd they didn't change this story until after the trial

It's like the two scoops of 2017 all over again.
Or like the great koi caper of 2017 where they lied about the koi feeding to embarrass their enemies....

I mean it's almost as if they are being directed by a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.

If you can't tell me what the fuck I'm shilling, you're just leaning on a buzzword to disregard whatever the fuck, since I haven't said shit and you're apparently great at reading tea leaves, fuck

>Good lord, sometimes I really wonder what kind of reach people think this site has
It's merely a dark reflection of the war of mankind above, as media and politics continuously incites it, so 4chan's reach, is kinda infinite.

This be a vortex of dragons, fighting with one another, but it is the opposed winds that brought them here. People bring back to the world, whatever scars they gained from these battles that the world drafted them into.

We just hope those who visit this particular cage match, become more than the sum of their scars.

Maybe maybe not but all this did was reinforce the idea that the media is being used for propoganda

There will always be another other for you to hate and distrust for the sake of your own sense of self. Alas, none of us would be here to talk about it, were it otherwise. The dance of war is merely the spice of life, that occasionally explodes.
