Things just aren’t adding up.
A police officer who was part of the response of the capitol being stormed on January 6th has now committed suicide.
Jeffery Smith of the Metropolitan Police Department was apparently on his way to work when he needed his life according to MPD Chief Robert Contee.
This isn’t the first officer that committed suicide after the events on January 6th, Howard Liebengood also committed suicide just a couple of days after too.

The Washington Times reported these details:
A second police officer who responded to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has committed suicide, the acting chief of Metropolitan Police Department told lawmakers Tuesday.
Officer Jeffrey Smith was a 12-year veteran with the MPD, The Washington Post reported. Acting MPD police chief Robert J. Contee III announced his death for the first time Tuesday before a closed session of the House Appropriations Committee.
Officer Smith reportedly died Jan. 15, nine days after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, resulting in the deaths of five people, including a Capitol Police Officer.
It was previously reported that Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood also died by suicide on Jan. 9 after responding to the riot.
Something is very odd about two officers committing suicide after the Capitol attacks….

ABC 7 News added to the story too:
A second officer who had been injured as a result of the attack on the Capitol has died by suicide, Acting Police Chief Robert Contee for the Metropolitan Police Department announced during a Wednesday afternoon press conference.
“That was a very sad and tragic situation for us,” Contee began with. “The officer is Officer Jeffrey Smith, he was a Second District Officer.”
Smith was one of the officers who responded to the Capitol on Jan. 6, the acting police chief explained.

It makes one think did these two officers know too much?
