Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s Mother: ‘He Wasn’t Hit on the Head’ by Trump Supporter


The mother of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick said her son was not beaten with a fire extinguisher by a mob on Jan. 6, saying he likely suffered a stroke instead—refuting reports from the New York Times and other outlets claiming otherwise.

“He wasn’t hit on the head, no. We think he had a stroke, but we don’t know anything for sure,” Gladys Sicknick told the Daily Mail in an exclusive interview on Feb. 22. “We’d love to know what happened.”

The NY Times, CNN, and NBC updated their reports weeks after the Jan. 6 breach to assert that Sicknick was not killed by a fire extinguisher. Originally, the NY Times reported, based on anonymous sources, that Sicknick was beaten to death.

According to the NY Times’ update in February, “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.” However, there were reports of new information emerging about the circumstances of Sicknick’s death around the same time the NY Times published its report on Jan. 8. read more

  1. Mom needs to sue. NYT doubled down on it last week.
    See, one reporter will sorta tell you the truth in a re-post, waaaay at the bottom of the article, while another reporter keeps peddling the original bullshit.

  2. As regards “all the news that’s fit to print”, I save myself an enormous amount of time. Whatever the NYT, WaPo, legacy media reports, it’s the opposite.

  3. Except that it was almost immediately known that the MSM narrative wasn’t correct. My condolences, but she should have been front and center saying this as loudly as possibly as soon as it was known not to be true — and instead, she let a man face impeachment and has allowed the political class to use her son’s death as justification to run wild. And will she now go after those outlets and individuals continuing to push this B.S.? I have my doubts…

  4. Condolences to her on her loss.

    Great respect for her for telling the truth in a time where lies are heard the loudest.
