What is commonly known: 3 people died of medical emergencies. From what I understand it was a stroke that killed each of them. Also it has not been said whether these three were actually a part of the riot or not. 1 woman was shot by a LEO. The other death, Officer Sicknick, cause of death is at this point unknown. Of course he didn't actually die on Jan 6. He died Jan 7th. Police said he died of blunt force trauma to the head while his brother believes it was a stroke. Since the cops initial claim however they have essentially withdrawn their statement and have said that his death is still not determined. That they have to wait for the autopsy. (personally I'm wondering why its taking so damn long to do an autopsy...anyone else?) So, we can't claim whether Sicknicks death was due to the riot as of yet, we need to wait for the autopsy. Nor can we claim that those three people who definitely had a stroke as having been caused by the riot. So as of this moment there was only one death that was caused by the riot...and even then not by the rioters. Not 5. As the media and Democrats likes to claim. So, why is the media and Democrats putting forth the narrative that 5 people died due to the riot?
