During a House Administration Committee hearing with U.S. Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton on Oversight of the U.S. Capitol Police Preparedness and Response to the January 6th Attack, Chair Zoe Lofgren asks about why the order was given to not use all available equipment, "such as heavier, less-than-lethal weapons." Inspector General Bolton says that through their review, it was decided that the heavier munitions were not to be used because "they could potentially cause life-altering injury, and/or death," and misuse could result in these outcomes. However, Mr. Bolton says that proper training should be provided to the officers to prevent possible injury or death. The decision to not use the equipment was made by the assistant deputy chief. close
