But apparently, it never happened and it's all made up by the lamestream media. You people need to seriously STFU with this bullshit.
Did a quick search. A number of media sources, both left and right wing, say she was trampled to death. They have also said she had quit drugs. Do you have a link to the coroner's report that said she died from a drug overdose?No one was trampled to death. The ME said drug overdose
The ME is very clear.
The causes of death for four people who died at the Capitol riot have been released, but results are still pending for Capitol officer Brian Sicknick.news.yahoo.com
The medical examiner released results earlier this month. He says meth intoxication. The video shows she was trampled, presumably after death?
For that matter, the two guys in their 50's who died of heart attack could likely have been saved in they were n' t in the middle of an insurrection when they had heart attacks.

If you don't then you should be very careful what you say.
A federal judge on Friday issued a preliminary injunction against Columbus police preventing them from using force against non-violent protesters, writing that officers ran "amok" during protests in the city last year.
Algenon Marbley, chief judge for the Southern District of Ohio, began his 88 page opinion with a quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.: "But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for rights."
"Unfortunately, some of the members of the Columbus Police Department had no regard for the rights secured by this bedrock principle of American democracy," Marbley wrote. "This case is the sad tale of police officers, clothed with the awesome power of the state, run amok."
Another woman, who was looking for her 21-year-old daughter but did not intend to protest, was pepper sprayed twice, even as she told officers she simply "wanted to find my baby," she recounted, according to the judge's order. After she was sprayed a second time, she sat down on a sidewalk, screaming for help because she could not see.
"She discerned two officers were walking towards her in riot gear; she hoped help was on the way at last. Instead, CPD officers sprayed her again — now, for the third time," the document said.
Then she says an officer stomped on her kneecap and said: "That’s what you get for being down here, you black, protesting b----."
That photo, of her kneeling over the body of Kent State University student Jeffrey Miller, is one of the most important images of the 20th century. Taken by student photographer John Filo, it captures Mary Ann’s raw grief and disbelief at the realization that the nation’s soldiers had just fired at its own children. The Kent State Pietà, as it’s sometimes called, is one of those rare photos that fundamentally changed the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
John Filo was a senior at Kent State in May 1970, a student photographer who almost missed out on covering the protests because he’d been in the woods taking pictures of teaberry leaves for his senior thesis that weekend. All the other photographers on the student paper had assignments from out-of-town papers, so John, 21, was working in the newspaper office to help process their pictures. On his lunch break, he grabbed a camera and stepped outside. He went straight toward the action, where a student in the no man’s land between soldiers and students waved a black flag. John snapped a photo thinking, “Okay, I’ve got my picture.” A moment later, the soldiers formed a rifle line. “I put my camera to my eye and trained it on one of the soldiers,” he says. “He aimed toward me, and then his gun goes off. The next thing I know, a bullet hits a tree next to me and a chunk of bark flew off.”
John dropped to the ground and waited out the 13 seconds of gunfire. When the smoke cleared, he stood and patted his arms and legs, checking to see if he’d been hit. “It was like slow motion. I just kept wondering, ‘How come I’m not shot?’ ” Then, not 10 feet away, he saw a body on the ground. John was running out of film as he saw a girl kneel beside the body. “I knew the boy was dead, but I could tell she didn’t know,” he told me. “I could see something building in her, and all of a sudden she lets out this scream and I shoot. I shoot one more picture, and I’m out of film.” By the time he had reloaded his camera, the girl was gone.
Lumumba apologized on behalf of the city to the families of the two men whose lives were cut short by the violent police response to the protest against racial injustice. Killed were 21-year-old Jackson State student Phillip Lafayette Gibbs and 17-year-old James Earl Green, a high school student who was on campus while walking home from work.
Jackson State’s 1970 commencement was canceled because of the bloodshed, and graduates that year received their diplomas in the mail, if at all. On Saturday, 74 of the 400-plus 1970 grads donned caps and gowns and stood in the sunshine to receive the recognition denied to them a lifetime ago.
The state of OH and feds issued a statement of regret but refused to apologize for killing and maiming students. Their failed leadership and tarnished legacy lives on as better-late-than-never Jackson, MI demonstrates a lesson in humanity.Lumumba said the Jackson Police Department officers “unjustly gunned down two innocent young Black men, terrorized and traumatized a community of Black students and committed one of the gravest sins in our city’s history.”
The Charlottesville City Council voted unanimously to remove the Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson statues during a public hearing Monday night, taking action that has been four years in the making. The earliest that the statues can be removed is 30 days from Monday on July 8.
For the 30-day period from June 7 through July 8, the City of Charlottesville is offering to transfer ownership of one or both of the statues to any museum, historical society, government or military battlefield interested in obtaining the statues for relocation. If either of the statues has not been transferred by July 8, the City may take additional action to have them covered, removed or placed in storage.
