Washington, DC - There seems to be some confusion in the media and among paid law enforcement “experts” as to where the FOP stands on the January 6, 2021 riots. While no one has asked us directly, we offer the following for their information:
The National FOP’s position on the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol is contained in a statement released even as the lawlessness continued. Those who participated in the assaults, looting, and trespassing must be arrested and held to account.
We continue to offer our support, gratitude, and love to our brothers and sisters in law enforcement who successfully fought off the rioters, and we will be with them as they grieve and recover, however long that may take.
