US Capitol Police Chief to resign after criticism for lack of protest control

 - International - Jan 8

US Capitol chief of police Steven Sund will resign on January 16 following the aftermath of the protests which saw pro-Trump supporters storming the Capitol building leading to a number of deaths.

Sund’s resignation follows Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi’s call for Sund to resign, highlighting a lack of leadership in high-ranking officials.

President-elect Joe Biden stated that police may have been more forceful had the individuals been part  of the Black Lives Matter movement, addressing the dark social issues going on in the US at the moment.
