My heart goes out to the family and friends of Officer Kyle DeFreytag.
Suicide is never an easy choice, and those who say it is have never been faced with the issues that would lead one down such a tragic path.
We have to ask ourselves, what caused Officer DeFreytag to take his own life?
More specifically, why is Officer DeFreytag just one individual within a larger and more disturbing pattern?
I am not going to say that I definitely know any of the officer’s reasons for taking their own lives— no one knows what was in the hearts of these men, but I can speculate.
Personally, I think that these men took their lives because they couldn’t live with the shattered reality that the very government they were meant to protect ended up being the villain.
When did they come to this realization?
Probably after Pelosi allegedly ordered Capitol officers to stand down on January 6th, and they saw the MSM lies and corrupt political narrative unfold in front of their eyes.
They of course knew the awful truth, but couldn’t say anything due to pressures from commanding officers, higher-ups, and senior department officials.
Again, this is just a hunch—I don’t know any of this to be true, but one is a tragedy……four are a pattern, and wherever there is a pattern, there is so much more to uncover.
Take a look:

The Hill had more details on the tragedy:
The news comes on the same day that MPD officials confirmed a third police officer death by suicide in the wake of the riot. Earlier on Monday, it was reported that Gunther Hashida was found dead in his home Thursday.
Hashida died two days after the House select committee probing the Jan. 6 attack held its first hearing, during which four police officers from MPD and Capitol Police delivered dramatic testimony about the riot and their experiences defending the Capitol.

Perhaps this report, which appeared earlier in NPR, highlights the reason behind the tragic suicide pattern:
The former chief of U.S. Capitol Police says security officials at the House and Senate rebuffed his early requests to call in the National Guard ahead of a demonstration in support of President Trump that turned into a deadly attack on Congress.
Former chief Steven Sund — who resigned his post last week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for him to step down — made the assertions in an interview with The Washington Post published Sunday.
Sund contradicts claims made by officials after Wednesday’s assault on Capitol Hill. Sund’s superiors said previously that the National Guard and other additional security support could have been provided, but no one at the Capitol requested it.
