Two Virginia police officers have been fired from their jobs this month after they had been federally charged with storming the US Capitol.
According to the reports, Jacob Fracker and Thomas Robertson were both axed from the Rocky Mount Police Department after being put on administrative leave for being inside the Capitol during the deadly riot on Jan. 6.
Both these cops were found bragging on social media that they had broken into the building and even photographed in front of the statue with one of them showing their middle finger in front of the camera, said the criminal complaint.
They have been charged with unlawful entry into the restricted area and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
On social media, Robertson posted, “CNN and the Left are just mad because we actually attacked the government who is the problem and not some random small business … The right IN ONE DAY took the f—–g U.S. Capitol. Keep poking us,” the complaint states.
Robertson said on his Instagram that he was “proud” of the photo because he was “willing to put skin in the game,” court papers say. They say that they did nothing wrong and never participated in the violence that unfolded at Capitol Hill.
