“‘I Thought I Was Going to Die’: A Capitol Police Officer Recounts Jan. 6” is an episode of the podcast “The Daily”, published by The New York Times on March 10th, 2021.
Like many great buildings in the United States, the Capitol was built by slaves at the turn of the 18th century.
However, a building with such a grim backstory is still considered a grand symbol of the American people and their government.
Officer Harry Dunn thought similarly – at least until the riots that ensued at the beginning of January 2021.
Officer Dunn is invited to an interview with journalist Michael Barbaro, in order to tell his version of the events that occurred.
