Brother of Capitol Police officer killed in riot outside Congress speaks out: ‘Brian is a hero’

The brother of the Capitol Police officer killed in the rioting on the steps of Congress wants the nation to know Brian Sicknick was an Iraq war veteran who “wanted to be a police officer his entire life” and died a “hero.”
Officer Sicknick, 42, was mortally wounded by a fire extinguisher smashed on his head while defending the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. He was one of now five people killed in the rush on the halls of Congress.
“Many details regarding Wednesday’s events and the direct causes of Brian’s injuries remain unknown and our family asks the public and the press to respect our wishes in not making Brian’s passing a political issue,” the officer’s brother, Ken Sicknick, said in a statement he shared with the Herald early Friday.
“Please honor Brian’s life and service and respect our privacy while we move forward in doing the same. Brian is a hero and that is what we would like people to remember,” Ken added.
Brian Sicknick was among the first officers on the steps on Congress to take on the crowd rushing to disrupt the Electoral College vote count to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. He was outside with fellow officers seen trying to hold back the swarm of protesters.

His family, the brother added in the statement while also texting a family photo of Brian to the Herald, want Brian’s lasting memory to be one of a country he served on so many levels.
“My brother Brian was the youngest of three sons born to my parents in South River, NJ. Brian, age 42, wanted to be a police officer his entire life,” said Ken Sicknick.
“He joined the New Jersey Air National Guard as a means to that end. In doing so, he served his country honorably in both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Desert Shield, of which my family is very proud. While stateside during those years, Brian served as an SP for the 108th Air Refueling Wing out of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurt in New Jersey. Brian transitioned to the USCP in 2008, serving there in support of our country for the past 12 years,” the brother added.
“The family also would like to express their gratitude to Brian’s law enforcement family for their kindness, compassion and support during this difficult time,” Ken Sicknick said of fellow Capitol Police officers.
