On January 6, Siknik died after suffering a head injury while extinguishing a fire during an hour-long battle for control of the US Capitol.
According to a news release, a formal arrival will be at 9:30 am ET on the Eastern Front of the Capitol. Viewing time for US Capitol Police members will begin at 10 a.m. and continue throughout the night.
The move came after several MPs had called in the Capitol to honor Cinic.
Rep. Ralph Norman and Sen. Tim Scott introduced the law on Thursday. If passed, a plaque will be placed in the Capitol in Sikkic’s memory and will allow the House Sergeant to pay in the Arms for Shimik’s funeral services.
Associations representing rank and file officers “welcome the proposal,” which would need to be passed unanimously.
“Officer Siknik died because he had saved the lives of members of Congress and his staff for his safety – he performed his duty,” said Gus Papanatsiyo, the president of the union representing rank-and-file officers. “We should remember their lives and service with respect and honor.”
Norman said in a statement, “The attacks in the Capitol on January 6 show us that now more than ever we should support our police.” “Just as the US Capitol Police harmed themselves last week to protect the seat of American democracy, selflessness and sacrifice are made every day by law enforcement officers across our country. Each of them deserves our respect and support Huh.”
