Capitol Police officer hailed as hero for drawing rioters away from Senate chamber

hero officerA  Capitol Hill police officer is drawing praise for leading rioters away from an entrance to the U.S. Senate chamber during last week's attack.

A video posted on Twitter by HuffPost's Igor Bobic shows the Black officer, identified as Eugene Goodman, being chased by white rioters as he heads to the second floor of the Senate side of the Capitol building.

At the top of the stairs he is seen looking through an empty doorway to the left, which leads to an immediate entrance to the Senate floor where most senators, staff and roughly a dozen journalists, including this Hill reporter, were sheltering.

Goodman — after briefly placing himself between the doorway and a rioter at the front of the group identified as Doug Jensen of Iowa — then lures the mob away from the immediate entrance to the Senate chamber.
