Amid the excitement

Accounts differ. CNN’s account of how Kevin Greeson died inside the Capitol:

Greeson had a history of high blood pressure and suffered a heart attack amid the excitement, his family said in a statement to CNN. He was an advocate of Trump and attended the event to show his support.

“He was excited to be there to experience this event,” the statement said. “He was not there to participate in violence or rioting, nor did he condone such actions.”

Well that’s not true. He was inside the Capitol. He was, necessarily, participating in the violence and rioting that enabled the rioters to be inside the Capitol.


Word is he was carrying a taser the way he’s carrying those pistols, and he was trying to wrestle a painting of Tip O’Neill off the wall and accidentally tasered himself in the testicles, an oops resulting in death. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this story.

At any rate, his family doesn’t seem to have known him very well.
